365 Cards - Day 311 - R U in 2 Txting?

Aloha and welcome to the first wonderful Wednesday 365 Cards post of the new year!! As everyone says, "I can't believe it's already 2011!" Where does the time go?!? Oh well, a whole new year cards to make...can't wait to see what Pam comes up with for 365 Cards!! :) So she kinda took it easy on us today and wants to see a "texting" type sentiment on your card. This was a PERFECT challenge for me as I've been researching this as I convinced my mom to get a cell phone and upgrade our family plan to include texting...so I was trying to catch up on the abbreviations...gotta admit a lot of what I found was just using the first letter of each work of the phrase you want to type...not sure that would make sense to everyone! I found this one "143" and liked that it stands for "I love you"! Perfect sentiment for these cute frogs from Robyn's Fetish! Here's some other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. Alota Rubber Stamps - at least one stamp, one ribbon, and one bow
2. Catch The Bug Challenge Blog - anything goes
3. Claudia & Company - use of a tag
4. I Did it Creations Challenge - favorite technique: right now mine is coloring with copics...must...get...more!!
5. If The Shoe fits... Scrap It! - red!!
6. i{heart}2stamp - sketch
7. Paper Playtime - use FACES on the project
8. Papertake Weekly Challenge - anything goes
9. Saturday Challenge - buttons & bows
10. Totally Gorjuss - something for someone special
11. Tuesday Throwdown - embossing
12. Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - Free and easy

And here's a picture of the inside...I used a fun sentiment also from Robyn's Fetish for this...
Well, thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to what you come up with for this challenge!

Lovely card and frogs!

Thank for participating in the Alota Challenge!


WOW, Love the vibrant red and green of your 'toadily' awesome card! And for the texting lesson, yes, I do need to learn the 'shorthand' of quick texting. It's so hard though when you work with elementary students and constantly teach correct spelling!!! Your coloring is perfect for the toads and I can only end this comment with "143!" too!

143, SAM aka MOM
