created by courtney challenge

Good morning stampers! Today is Created by Courtney Challenge #2 day. We have decided to do these challenges on Tuesdays rather than Fridays to give you guys the optimum time to participate as we all know how busy the weekends are!

This week's challenge is to make a 3"x6" card. Any stamps, any layout as long as it fits within the guidelines of the 3"x6" card. Remember to make a card and post a link to Courtney's blog HERE so you can be in the running for a prize from her! Want to see what the other challenge chicks have made? They are linked up below...

I have to say that I really enjoyed making this card and it just sort of fell together. It is happy, bright, and just perfect for my friend's birthday on Friday! Woohoo!

I did get my Big Shot yesterday and it is a wonderful tool! I have a Cuttlebug too but I do have to say that the Big Shot will be all that I use from now on. It is easy to use, has a more even "smooshing" ability which means my embossing is much more even. I will be letting my Cuttlebug go.

Tomorrow is Belli Challenge day! I will be posting the card that I made for the Belli Challenge but at this point it doesn't really fit all the requirements...darn it! It is a cute card though and I think you guys will like it.

Have a super day...I get to go to Yakima today to the "real" scrapbook store! Woohoo!
