Just Because You are so Sweet!!


 Hi Everybody Happy Hump Day!! Wow does it feel good to be in my room and visiting all your blogs!! A ton of inspiration out there... Did any of you watch the Biggest Looser last night..I love that show it is so inspirational. I think this is going to be a great season..Anyway on to my card for today. I am entering this card in a few challenges. That is what I like about Challenges it takes me out of my shell and gets me using stamps I didn't know I had. Well I knew I had them but have never used them . Do you have any of those sets? lol.. Challenges also make me use colors that I normally don't use... Challenges, Challenges, Challenges.. Love them and love all of you who make those Challenges for us to play in.. I hope you like my card :) Don't forget to stop by tomorrow it is a big day. I will have a group post with the MTME girls and you won't want to miss it..Then Tomorrow night at 9pm EST there is a Totally Stampalicious Blog Hop with a Very Cool Promotion that you will not want to miss!! Hope to see you then :).. Monique

Hey, there, darlin'! This is a superb glimpse of spring... I ADORE THIS CARD! LOOK at those exquisite pearls and fine, fine details! Way to get YOUR craft on, sweet girl! {I did watch bits of TBL! Sooooo inspirational!} Your summary of challenges sums up my feelings too, and similarly to aspects of TBL, it's easy to get out of "challenge shape", but once you ease back in, it feels WONDERFUL! Hoping for a bit of that this month, myself! You're off to a brilliant start! xoxo!

What a lovely summery looking card. I love the backing paper - such a pretty little heart that I can see. Such a lot of lovely detail - The button flowers are very cute, and that is a very sumptious bow (I can't do bows). And some lovely pearls too. Fab!
Thanks for playing along with CR84FN.

LOVE this card! The button flowers are so FAB and I DO know what you mean about using stamps you didn't know you had (because you never inked them up!) and colors you wouldn' normally use! That's exactly why I LOVE challenges, too! And look what they lead you to produce ~ super feminine gorgeous cards like this! THX for playing with us this week at CR84FN!

amazing card!!!! You did wonders with that flower stamp and the buttons. Beautiful! Yes, I love The Biggest Loser. It was crazy last night, those contestants are so big and I swear one of them is going to die one of these days. But their transformations are so inspirational. Love the show! did you know this is Jillian's last season? She's leaving!
