Happy Birthday Chris

Happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone seeing this on the East Coast made it through the Hurricane okay.  The only issue I had was electricity.  I lost it at 10:30 AM Sunday and didn't get it back until 6:30 PM.  It was a dark, dreary day so it was difficult to get anything else done.  I decided to start organizing my ribbons.  A big task but since I was without electricity for so long I did make a dent in it.

Today we have a really fun challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.  We want you to decorate the inside of a card.  I decided to use Maude from Art Impressions.  I had bought the large Maude at one of the conventions and then won the little Maude.  I thought both of them would be perfect for this challenge.  I plan on sending this to my friend Chris for her Birthday. She will love the saying on the inside of the card.

The other wonderful challenges this card meets are:

PaperShelter Challenge - Diecuts/punches
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Anything Goes
CASE Study Challenge - Show us your Style
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes
