U Whooo...It's Monday

Okay so I couldn't resist that :) This week over at BBTB we were challenged to use the owl card from the Wild Cards Cartridge. If you are just beginning to make cards then you definitely need to own this cartridge. While I have been making cards for a while now, I too enjoy this cartridge simply because of the fact of how quickly you can cut, decorate and get the card into the mail ;)

Here's my take on this weeks challenge:

Make sure to stop by the BBTB site to check out the awesome cards that the other gals made this week using this will not be disappointed!

Have a super Magical (I say magical because I am heading to Disney this week) week!

Happy Monday-BBTB

Happy Monday Everyone! This morning I hear nothing as I sit and type...all of my kids are in school...after 10 years of having someone on my hip at all times...this is VERY strange! I am not sure if I like it or not I keep trying to talk to someone and no one answers...LOL.

So this week over at BBTB we were challenged to use card 2 and envelope 2 and the color yellow! I have had this lime rickey paper for a while now and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use it. I also combined this weeks challenge with the on-going challenge/contest for Cards for Heros. If you haven't heard about cards for heros head on over to scrapstreet and see what's going on! This week Karen Russell gave away a spot in her amazing photography don't want to miss all of this fun!

Here's my card:

Well, I am off to be productive with my extra time. Have a great day everyone!
