Stampin' Addicts Challenges

Sorry I haven't posted for several days. I had way more going on than should be allowed! Tuesday night I signed a new recruit to my Stampin' Up! team of demonstrators! Welcome to Tracy! When I got home from Tracy's house, I got a phone call from my manager at Curves. The owners decided to close the club that I'm working at and merge it with the other club that they own. I decided that when my club closes, I'll be done working for them! Wednesday was my husband's 40th birthday and my daughters and I threw him a surprise party! Boy, was he surprised! He told me that I shouldn't frighten the old people as they might have heart attacks!!!! Silly man! Thursday I had a workshop and Friday was my monthy hostess club meeting. Saturday I had a vendor fair! I also signed another recruit on Saturday! Welcome Deb! Needless to say, I didn't even have time to schedule a posting!

Two weeks ago, we didn't have anything to do over the weekend so I spent the whole day on Saturday stamping! This is one of the cards that I created. I used a sketch challenge and a color challenge from Stampin' Addicts It's hard to see but under the little girl's feet is Dazzling Diamonds. I think this is my favorite card that I made that day but I'll let you judge. Keep watching as I will be posting the others soon.

Cardstock: Soft Suede, River Rock, Early Espresso, Whisper White
