Hello... Happy Monday!  It's the start of a brand new work week... so I'll just get the show on the road here, as I have lots of fun things to do.... and some not so fun.... my Big Shot bit the dust this weekend.  It is five years old, so it was bound to happen sometime.  My husband took it all apart and found that it needs a couple new parts.... so we'll see what that costs!!!! (fingers crossed!)

I am linking up with three challenges today.  I needed to make a birthday card for my niece, she'll be having a birthday in a couple weeks, so I played along at the Paper Players with their CAS For Kids challenge!  I used the Freshly Made Sketch and the fresh colour combo from the Pals Paper Arts.  

Here's my card!

It's a pretty easy card to replicate... and I have to be honest.... I am not totally happy with this because I had wanted to run the card base through the Big Shot with an embossing folder.... but ALAS.... BROKEN BIG SHOT!!!  Boo hoo!  So I went ahead with the sponging and no embossing, and I guess it looks alright, but still.... you know when you had something different pictured in your mind, right?


Now... go check out those blogs for yourself, get inspired by all the crafty creations, and link up your own card or project!  Thanks for taking the time to look at mine!

Have a great week!  xo Anita
