Good Morning!! I have some more exciting news! Kristen from Scrap Creations has decided to run a weekly challenge! It will be called Going Grey with Scrapcreations! Every Tuesday she will post a challenge with a theme. You will then make a card with that theme using Basic Grey paper. Today is the 1st challenge. The theme is Celebration in honor of celebrating this exciting new endeavor. You will have until the following Monday at 6 PM EST to participate. Hopes Stamps Eternal has kindly offered to sponsor this weeks challenge. One lucky winner will receive a pack of kioshi, and Green at Heart Basic Grey paper!!! These are new Basic Grey 6 x 6 paper packs that I am drooling over. I can't wait to get them and you could win them!

Kristen has asked me to be a part of her DT team. I am honored. She has put together a team of very talented ladies. You really need to check them out.

Last Saturday some friends got together to stamp at my friend Pia's house. Pia pulled out alot of her new stamps and I thought this Penny Black would be perfect for Kristen's first challenge. I wanted the stamp to Pop so I glittered the animals and put crystal effects on the balloons. The stamp turned out to be bigger than I thought and I was concerned it wouldn't fit on my card but it just made it.

I was so concentrated on my 1st card for the challenge I only found a couple other challenges this fit.

Truly Scrumptious - Sketch. I really liked this sketch. I thought I would be cute with this image.

Cupcake Craft - Flower Power. I have my flowers on the bottom, small flowers in the grass and flowers on my DP.

My Time to Craft - Kidz Kardz - This card would be such a cute kids birthday card

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card. I love hearing what you think. I read and cherish all your comments.

CS: SU Brocade Blue & Pretty in Pink
DP: Basic Grey
STAMPS: Penny Black, SU
MISC: Ribbon (?), Glittered brads from Michaels, Prima's.
