Just for F-U-N!!!

Well, after the crazy busy week I had with getting stuff done for my J-O-B (can I say that I'm so OVER writing reports?!? UGH!), I was so relieved to make it to the weekend so I could have F-U-N!!! I completed some DT stuff which you'll see later this week, but here's something that I did kinda just for fun. Actually, it was to help appease my guilt for not being able to complete my first Wednesday DT card for 365 Cards (Day 3 - String Art). THANK you so much Pam for stepping in for me(!!!), and here's what I would've done had I not been getting my "real" work done! :) I also like to participate in the MOJO challenge when I can, so this follows that sketch. Here's some other challenges I used:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - Beads: Just got two on this one but thought they finished the corners off nicely
2. Alphabet Challenge Blog - S is for Stamping: used SU! Dream Garden and Kanji sets
3. Colour Create Challenge Blog - RED, BLACK and OFF WHITE (optional extra, SILVER/PEWTER BRADS): got'em all
4. Lots To Do - Distressing: might be hard to tell but the left and right sides of the embossed panel are distressed as well as the sentiment panels
5. Pollycraft Monday Challenge - distressing: see above

And if you're new to my blog, I've set a personal challenge for this year of finishing the inside of my creations. I got tired of showing what I created to others and their looks of disappointment when opening the card and gazing at the unfinished insides. I've found it's a great way to use up some of those scraps! So, here's evidence of my doing that:
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a most excellent week!

Beautiful unique card - love it.


WOW! Love this card and I know you know many people who would love to receive it where you work.

Wonderful on the Mojo sketch challenge and the color combo is perfect for the theme. Your string art is a terrific frame for the image and I love the way it completes the lower half of the circle.

I got an idea! You make the cards and I will critque them!

Love, SAM aka MOm

ps my voice is still gone! :(
