Finally!....My Blog Challenge is Done!


Believe it or not, this card took me days to create!....I started it on Wednesday night! But I just couldn't get it to come together....and honestly, I'm still not sure I'm thrilled with it. You see, I challenged myself to use this week's sketch, which for me wasn't all that easy (stepping out of my comfort zone here!), and use a set I haven't used in a while. To be honest, I purchased this stamp set, Always, because I thought it would make awesome wedding invitations. But, have I used it for making any? Of course not....but, I might!! Each time I worked on it, I'd get frustrated and needed to step away. Finally, this afternoon, I came up with this as my final card....hopefully, you'll enjoy it.....it's truthfully not one of my favorites!

BUT, if you take a bit of time to visit the other participants (click on the Bloggers' Challenge logo in the right column), there's bound to be some awesome samples! Glad you stopped by...thanks for making your visit a part of your day!
