Challenges Galore

I have never really done challenges, but have been feeling inspired lately. I don't know if I am even getting these three in on time, but they were fun to do and maybe they will inspire you to try a challenge or two :)

Here is my entry for the MOJO50 challenge. Did I mention I am recently in love with Verve Visual? Well, in case you didn't get that memo, here is another card using the "cupcake affairs" set and the sentiment is from "artful elegance" and reads, "life is good" (that's kinda hard to see in this not so great picture ... sorry!).

Here is my entry for Shelli's "Celebrate" challenge. Shelli's blog is so fun and I have enjoyed seeing her creations, hearing about all the fun things she gets to do to help grow and promote SU!, as well as, just enjoying her family. She seems so down-to-Earth. I am very inspired by her success and creativity! If you haven't checked it out go now :) Even if you just love babies ... she has a beautiful new grandbaby.

And here is my entry for Beate's Inspiration Challenge. I love this designer series paper (SU! Rebecca) it has always been one of my faves! And when I saw the inspiration piece of this challenge, I knew this would work. I went to an SU! garage sale, a week or so ago, and this is one of the retired sets (Friendly Flowers) that I picked up. Not sure why I never got this out of the catalog. I really like it. I pierced the black mat around the edges but it didn't show up so well. I was trying to multitask and take pictures of my cards while I let my puppy out in the backyard. It was really too late in the day to get good sunlight, unfortunately!

Back to the craft room as soon as the kids are tucked in their beds for the night ... half hour and counting!

I love all of the cards, but the celebrate card is my favorite. I agree that Shelli seems very down to earth.
