Sorry I Suck and Challenges :)

Hi everyone! Well, this has to be some kind of record for me 2 cards in 3 days.  Have you ever had one of those days when you are just well...crabby at the wrong people?  My dear friend who works with me, was having a bad day...we were all having a bad day.  I was angry at another co-worker and snapped at my friend.  My friend, a very strong assertive woman, would normally have told me to shove it. However, on this day...she got emotional.  I would have much rather been told to shove it, so now I feel like a really tiny piece of dog crap on your shoe LOL.  So, I made her a card and hope it makes her laugh. 

The pattern papers are from Bearly Mine Designs, the vacuum cleaner image is from Graphics Factory (by the way you can download 5 images a day for free).  The face on the vacuum is of course from Peachy Keen. I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
  1. Digital Tuesday-Use a Die Cut
  2. Papertake Weekly-Puttin on the Glitz (Stickles and Gems)
  3. Ooh La La-For Someone Special (close friend)
  4. Aly's Sunday Challenge-Bling it up ( Stickles and Gems)

  8. Totally Paper Crafts-Clean and Simple

FlashBack Friday Challenge

Hi Everyone!  I found a new challenge and it's called FlashBack Friday. Basically you make a new post with a previously made card that fits their challenge.  A nice way to see where we were and where we are now. I originally posted this card in September of 2009. The image is from The Stamping Boutique. Check out my smooth blending/coloring job LOL. Still not great at it now, but I can see some improvement with a lot more to go LOL.  The challenge is your first glitter project.  I am pretty sure this was the first one I put on my blog.  It was also my first attempt at stickles LOL. Pop over and join the challenge!
