Banners and Beauty

It's Sunday, and that means it's a busy day.  In an effort to get to church on time, I've combined two different cards in this one blog post.  I sure hope that's OK, because I'm really excited about both of these challenges.

First, this little October Afternoon card for a "Banners/Flags" challenge at Crafty Sentiments.  I had so much fun making this card.  I just love the banners.  You can read about, and enter, the challenge by clicking here:

This second card is being entered in the following challenges:

These two cards are very different, but I had such fun with both of them.  These are awesome challenge blogs with fun challenges and awesome entries.  Take a moment to check it out, and enter something for yourself.  The more, the merrier.  Right?

Have a wonderful Sunday, everyone.  I'm so glad you stopped by.

Blessings,

Karen

  16. Ok, lets see if I can explain. I had to have my husband the computer expert help me. First go to random.org and enter your number range, than click generate. That gives you the magic number.. Than I copied the number generator and saved it as a jpeg and then just attached it into my new posting. I hope this helps.. Good luck...

    I hope you are having a fantastic Monday...
