A couple of things....

What is today? Uh ...Thursday!

Well, where did this week go? I always have the best of intentions ....

I decided to do a few challenges, etc., this week. First, I have been doing the BAP - build a project- with Creative Kuts. This week we were given a cut out floral border, a grass border, and the title "Happy Easter". I did another 2 page scrap page ... never hurts to be ready for the upcoming pictures!

I used 3 CK files to go with the requires elements. I took the flower cutouts, inked and blinged them to add. All the papers are from my 'collection' - ha - I actually left this pretty simple.

Next, I needed to get a card ready to send to a card swap person, so I finally used my head and made a card I could use in the Little Scraps of Heaven template card challenge :-) This is what I mean about being unorganized ... I usually don't take the time to see if there are challenges to enter when I make a card for someone. So here is the card I made...

I used the LSHD Spring Fairies file ... lying fairy,mushroom, and spring title. The card swap is to make something 'Spring'. I glossed the title, used Stickles on flowers and wings, and used 'rhinestone' flowers on the fairy. Most of the paper I used were scraps - yea! This is an easel card so I pop dotted the mushroom on the inside to hold it. I used My Pink Stamper stamps from the Friends and Family pack. Then I added a couple of stickers :-) I can't say this was easy-peasy because it takes a while to paper piece and then I had to try a couple of times to get the easel right because of the size. The thing that took me the longest was figuring out what size the six back squares should be!! I never said math was my strong suite, especially something rather like geometry!!

Now to get the card in the mail and finish one more challenge project that I am doing. Still on kitten watch, but it has to be soon. Poor little Spooky, she is not huge, but it makes me happy to know she will never have to do this again! She has acclimated to being inside very well so that is a good thing :-) She never fusses to get out and likes to "visit" us in bed late at night - hides and sleeps all day. The other two are being good friends to her -- another good thing :-)

Kitty Hugs, Judy
