Photo Card

Happy Thursday! We are on the downside of this week and like I said yesterday...this week is flying by! It's Thursday so that means I go to Care Net today...yay! Could you all pray for me that if a client comes in that I have confidence that Jesus will help me through my talk with her? I get SO nervous! Anyway...

Wanna hear my news? Yeah? Okay...the wonderful Kerry from 3 Clovers Designs has asked me to be a part of her challenge team....**screaming loudly!*** When she e-mailed me last week I went in the bathroom where my husband was and literally jumped up and down squealing with delight! With that information you can expect that at least twice a month (on opposite Thursdays from limeLIGHT but sometimes I'll have two posts) you will see a card or project that I've made with the challenge that Kerry puts out for us all to try.

This week's challenge is to use a photograph on your card/project. I was stumped as to how/what to do but I knew I wanted to make a card with the photo of the Bronze Star rose that I took this summer. First I printed out the photo so I could find some patterned paper that would work with it. I ended up with some Basic Grey paper. Then, I decided on the size I wanted the photo to be along with what shape. Obviously I went with the Curved Rectangles Nestabilities in different sizes. The rest of the card (and it is a card...it opens at the bottom) came together very quickly. I really like the class the pearls give the card! The hugs & kisses sentiment (from PTI) is placed there for my grandparents. I can't wait to send it to them!

So, I have the rest of the challenge girls in my side bar to the right. I really would suggest that you visit all of their blogs so that you can see the wonderful artwork that they have for you.

So...I hope you'll go and try out Kerry's challenge this week...it is a winner! Have a super Thursday everyone!
