It really was a challenge for me too!! It is a bit different from my norm...but not bad. It is actually a tri-fold card. The piece of chipboard covers half the top & half the bottom & that is how it opens...if that makes any sense at all!!! Every thing I used on this card is from my scrap pile except the chipboard & I got that at the CK convention.
That's it for today...you all should give it try!
Hope you are all having a good week & the flowers are starting to bloom!!
I will be visiting all of my favorite bloggs on the weekend!! As always...I appreciate your visits & you comments!!!

I finally got to make a card today!!!
My Job, like a thief has been stealing all of my time for the last three weeks AND will be for the next few! I really should not have (so many other things to do) but I went to the HUGE CK scrapbook convention yesterday!! OMG!!! it was my first time goings as I am not much of a scrapbooker and again OMG!!! I can not believe what I have been missing! I was able to get into 3 classes taught by the gals from Paper Crafts Mag. This is one of the card designs...I just changed it up a bit...this is actually a challenge from over at CardVarks http://caardvarks.blogspot.com/
you are to make a card black/white plus one other color...That's it! I have a few other challenge/sketches to the right of my blogg if any of you are looking for something to do! The papers for this chard are all SU as well at the Polk-a-dot stamp & black ink. the Stamp set is Country Life from http://www.belindalandtroop.com/ Clear Artistic stamps. Can you see my cute little butterfly??The large flower is a SU punch & the center is a Marvy I believe. I will try to get back sometime this week as I have lots of other things I WANT to do & share.....So you all keep on crafting!!! can not wait to see all of your next creations!!!
Thanks for visiting!!!

This is the most fun project I have done in a while....I have had it in my head for a long time & finally found the time to complete it.
This is for my sister the Gardner. She lives in Wisconsin & they still have snow :( She is really itching to get to digging in the dirt! So I thought this most appropriate for her BD.
The first part of it here is the card & gift box. I just love it...actually wish I could keep it ;) The box has a pair of garden gloves, some little peet pots & some hand lotion.
This Second part is a Criss-cross envelope with flower seed packets in it which I decorated with DP. I just love garden Bells! she is perfect for my sis!
All of the paper from this post is from Papertyey. All stamps also from Papertrey....except for the Bella & the wheelbarrow Is from SU. It all matches perfectly..
Well that is it for today...now I am off to work!!! hope you all get out in your gardens soon! (if you want to) Tee Hee Hee! Thanks for the visit!!

So Sorry to be gone so long! It has been a crazy busy week & it looks like it will continue onto the next few :(
But, what are you going to do? You just keep on keepin' on & do what you gota do!! So my friends, I will craft when I can, post when I can & Surf & comment when I can. After all a gal's gota have some fun!!
This is my last Cosmo for a while, I am starting to think she drinks too much! Baa ha ha.....this one is for my SIL. I just love the DP from SU! I just glitzed it up a bit with some Gemstones from Michale's.
I also made her this Little tin with a gift card inside. Now that I look at it...Bella really does need a bar to lean on!!
Don't feel bad if I haven't left a comment for a while...sadly I have not even had the time to look & I miss that terribly! I hope spring has found at least some of you! I think summer is already here in Arizona! All of my flowers are so so beautiful, Thanks to my DH for taking such good care of them for me!!! Gota run...keep on creating!!
