Having Fun Creating

I've been so busy lately trying to get ready for my boutiques this time of year, that I sometimes feel like I'm neglecting my blog.  So, I thought I would whip up a couple of little cards, and enter them in a few challenges just to let the world know I'm still here.

This first card was made for a challenge at abc-challenge which you can read all about here:
http://abc-challenge.blogspot.com/2011/11/abc-challenge-c-for-crochet-flowers.html - C is for Crocheted Flowers

This second card is based on a sketch at Frosted Designs, but is also being entered in the following challenges:
http://frosteddesigns.blogspot.com/2011/11/sketch-along-tuesdays-sketch-27.html - Sketch
http://anythingchallenge.blogspot.com/2011/11/challenge-53-stitches-real-or-faux-you.html - Stitches Real or Faux (mine are real)
http://totallypapercrafts.blogspot.com/2011/11/challenge-91-stitch-it.html - Stitch It (both cards could be considered for this entry)
http://heartsonginspirations.blogspot.com/2011/11/challenge-23-anything-goes.html - #23 Anything Goes

This is a close-up of the bottom right:

I always try to just have fun with my entries.  I really enjoy making cards, and always hope that each one will be a blessing to the person who receies it.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and for taking a look at these two cards.  I appreciate your visit, and all your sweet comments.

I would be thrilled to have you as a new follower (if you're not already following), and will always follow YOU in return.  Have a great week.

Blessings to you all,

Karen
