Hey y'all! I'm back with another card for you! I love playing along with challenges.... they really seem to get my creative mojo going, so that's what I got here again! I was inspired by RetroSketches 81 and Create With Connie and Mary 268. A sketch and a beautiful colour combo make for a finished card in no time at all!
I made a ladies' birthday card. My sister-in-law ordered some cards and using challenges for inspiration, I am well on my way to filling her order! Here it is!
I was a bit more challenged on this one because, like I mentioned earlier... my Big Shot bit the dust, and it seemed like every good idea I had for this card involved the Big Shot! I had no idea that I NEEDED it so badly! When my husband was taking it apart, I stopped him and made him promise that if he took it apart and couldn't fix it again, that I could order another right away! Well, fortunately, he found the problem, so I have ordered replacement parts from Sizzix. Shipping costs are more than the parts cost themselves! ($23 total... parts, shipping, duty) They come from California and I am in BC, so hopefully they'll arrive at the end of this week and my Handyman can put it back together... otherwise I know what I'll be ordering... overnight too yet!
I was actually surprised at how much junk was inside my Big Shot.... five years worth! Stuff that I certainly didn't recognize and do not ever remember cutting!!! Makes me wonder if my girls are Big Shotting behind my back! Hmmm...
Anyway... go check out those challenge sites.... there's always so much inspiration on them! Thanks for checking out my card! Don't forget to leave me some love! I love comments!
