Wow. Three posts in one day. I cannot believe how much I have managed not to do this week and yet I have indulged in not one but two challenges. The joy! Here is a card I made for the Color Q Challenge #30 and for the 2 Sketches 4 You Challenge. I would never have picked this color combination but I really love the end result. I kept it very simple using only cardstock and a stunning image I found at The Graphics Fairy. To be honest there are so many layers of cardstock on this one that I don't think I could have got much more on it. Well, maybe a few pearls.

That's me! My gorgeous daughter is studying special effects make up and did her first "shoot" earlier this week. Unfortunately she ended up in a state this afternoon because her photographs did not come out so ... she had to do an emergency re-do this afternoon and I was the only available canvas. The thing is it took some serious persuasion as there is one small problem. I am camera phobic if there is such a thing. My face takes on an instantly frozen look of something which resembles shock and I start to feel physically ill. Ridiculous I know but never the less true. She begged and pleaded while I found every excuse under the sun but I am proud to say that I managed to get through it and now have a photo of grumpy old me looking almost like me.

Good morning to all. This is just a quick post to share a small card I made. I used the Mojo Monday sketch and the Curtain Call Color Challenge which you can find at Stacey's Stamping Stage. I loved the colors and, while I should have been finishing a class layout that I have been procrastinating over forever, the idea of a quick challenge was too appealing.

It's time for the Just Us Girls template challenge again. Something I can't resist! I am so happy to have had some time today to do a little bit of paper crafting. Life has been a little hectic lately. I stumbled on this sweet Rock-a-Bye template over at Clear & Simple Stamps.
The rocking horse template was designed by Sue Berker and is really easy to put together. The box was a little too small for my purpose so I just printed the rocking horses as large as my printer would allow and made my own simple folded box from a 12 x 12" piece of cardstock.
