ESS#43 Card Challenge


Hello friends-
First off I'm really new to card challenges so please cut me a little slack!! I did run into a few snags yesterday while uploading my card for Tracy's challenge (her blog link is on the bottom of my blog Eat Sleep Stamp) but heck I tried. I decided to use some Amy Butler goodies from my stash for a couple of reasons. Amy (also listed on my blog) loves Amy Butler and so do I. She is an awesome talented young woman in WA and does a lot of card challenges!! Hi Amy!! I really like her style and of course Sherry the button lady (also listed below). I made the card because I found the paper and Grand Adhesions while sorting my Memory Box paper yesterday. I couldn't post it until today because I wanted Sherry to go on a treasure hunt!! Tee hee but I made it too easy for her!! Long story!! So here you have my take on the card challenge. Next time I will keep the sketch up on my laptop as a reference (that's if my laptop will stay up that long and not to mention I can't print anything at all-have to go to the library) and then do the challenge!! I also thought I would surprise three of my friends with the card...Tracy, Tinla and Sherry. I hope you likey!! I tried to upload the actual file of the card challenge but I'm having trouble so the real card will have to do for now. Remember I'm a newbie at all this and blogging too!! :)

Thanks to everyone that ordered the Graphic 45 card class "to go". I appreciate your business very much and thanks for the blog love too. It really does matter to me. We had another perfect beautiuful day here in MN and that made me so so happy!! I got a lot of work done both inside and outside the house!! I have my new plants all set to grow and hope they will make me proud!! Have a great week everyone and I will be back tomorrow with another card. I promise. Love and peace my friends. Tami : )

PS...This week is going to rock. I can already feel it. Nothing lasts forever so thank God the yucky humid weather we had last week has gone to another place. Stay cool my friends and thanks for stopping by the 'ole bloggies!! I am going to try and do a better job of blogging and next up hopefully is a stab at a card challenge on the 365 Cards site (also listed on my blog). I love checking out Pam's challenges and of course visiting Tracy's blog and others too!! TTYL

Sherry said...

Tami, fantastic card although you teased for about 3 hours last night and had me running all over with the 15 clues you gave me and finally this morning I found it right where you had left it.
Too funny girlfriend.

Cute card again. I am liking the weather too. Makes walks with the dog much more enjoyable. Capone loves it too.

Tracy said...

Wow Ms. Wood this card seriously rocks!!! Is the purse an embellishment? And this patterned paper is goregous. You've always rocked this elegent look. I'm not very good at it, then again I haven't really tried. I can't tell you how thrilled I am that you played along with this week's challenge. {{{{HUGS}}}}

Tami, you are too funny. I love how your card came out using Amy Grants paper and embellishments. Awesome!
