Another Card Night!

Ok, so I got sucked into another card night (which is why it is nearly 2:00 AM and I am wide awake). This one was a fun one though because I was listening to Christmas music making cards for Paper Crafts Magazine's holiday call. It's a good thing that Campbell didn't wake up and hear the Christmas music because it would mean 3 more months of holiday music for me (once that girl gets started, its hard to get her to stop--but who can resist the wonderful sound of a 4 year old singing "Its the most wonderful time of the ear.")

I have some good news to share-- a card that I showed you last weekend was picked as a winner of the Stamp It! Week Challenge on the Paper Craft Connections blog site. You can check it out here.  I was really surprised (and delighted) when I saw it posted there-- thank you Paper Crafts Connection!

Anyway, tonight's post has a couple of cards (yes I plan to get back to scrapbooking this week-- I've got a great pink layout waiting for me to put together as we speak). 

This card was another entry for Scrap-N-Style's Spring Green challenge (and the inspiration for the pink page that I plan to scrap this week). It strictly interprets the theme by the feeling that I get when I think of spring with a splash of green, since in southern Ohio Spring only starts with a splash of green if you are lucky. To note: If you are looking for a quick and easy card to make, find a great piece of patterned paper, cut it to the size of your card, simply add glitter, a few embllishments, a sentiment and ribbon. 

My best scrapping girlfriend Anita and I headed down to Louisville this weekend to Creating Keepsake's Convention. At these things they always have card and layout contests. This is something I created for Paper Craft Magazine's card contest-- the challenge was to make a birthday card for them since they are celebrating their 5th birthday this year. 

Well I think the hour has finally hit me and I may be ready to head to bed. I've been fortunate to have had a productive and fun weekend, I hope you all have had the same.

Take care all!!! Thanks for stopping by;)
