Playing in Challenges

One thing when you step down from a designing gig, you find more time on your hands.  This is a good thing since I get to play in challenges :).  Don't get me wrong, I am currently pursuing some avenues at this time :), but in the interim I get to use my other stamps.

Today I started with my favorite One Layer Wednesday [which typically] I have missed the last couple of them].  They even have a sponsor this week! [Go Susan!]  The theme; Celebrate Spring. Works for me....  But, you know the saying plans are good -- HA!  By the time this card was completed, I realized it was no longer a one layer card.  So I am entering this into a few other challenges:


The Muse Challenge with this inspiration:



















I am also entering this for Papercraft Star; lace and dots, Flutter By Wednesday; anniversary [with a butterfly].
I got to use a Hero Arts image [with die] and a GKD sentiment.

I still wanted to play in the One Layer Wednesday challenge, so I also made this card for that challenge:

For this card I used Dare 2B Artzy Retro Pattern 1.  Celebrates Spring pretty darn fun, huh?



Thanks for stopping by~

Two fabulous cards. I am glad to hear that others also start out to make one thing, and end up making something else.

Two great cards for these fun challenges Vicki! I've been following them as well - love the green and that butterfly - and your one layer is so pretty with the lines of stampings and satin ribbon!

I am SO aware of the unbridled joy of creating without with the boundless inventory of EVERYTHING you love, and not just several... LOL - NO, seriously, it can feel so naughty and delicious, at the same time! Luckily, I ALWAYS feel that when I roll out my JUGS creations! hee hee - THESE are super fun, Vicki! I can tell that you were RUNNING free on these: YEE HAW!
