First Challenge

>> Thursday, February 28, 2013

For the first time EVER...I decided to participate in a challenge.  I have seen them...I have said I am going to do them...AND THEN I DON'T.

Well today I did!!

My moms bestie Karolyn over at Paper Therapy always posts to Facebook something called a CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge.  I was curious, so I clicked on the link and decided...I think I can do that.

Here is a pic of the template...

And here is my card...

I can definitely see how these challenges become addicting, I had fun making this card and it didn't even take me that long.  LOL...that says a lot...I can sit and stare at a blank card forever before I decide what I want it to look like.

Paper: Bazzill Paper
Ink: Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip
Stamp: Stampin' Up Teeny Tiny Wishes
Embellishments: Pebbles Layered Felt Embellishment, Buttons.

Your card is so sweet, love love that cute little bug! I became addicted to challenges very quickly too, they are a great place for inspiration and also a great way to meet other crafters.
Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS(E) this Sketch this week!

Awww . . . this is just the sweetest thing EVER!! I had lunch with your mom today and she mentioned to me that you had submitted a card for the challenge - and it's freakin' AMAZING!! She said that sweet bug came from my stash. Is it bad that I don't remember it AT ALL?!! LOL I'm so glad you played along, sweetie!! This really is an amazing submission. Your next job is to get your mom back into her craft room - and not just to clean it!! LOL
