I've been out of town for about a week, and haven't been able to create anything, post, link, or participate in any way. I've felt SO disconnected. What a bummer, right? But I got home VERY early this morning, slept for a few hours, and then started in with laundry, housework, schooling (with our son), and some crafting. I got three cards finished. One of which is this card that I created for this week's Make It Monday Challenge over at Nichole Heady's Papertrey Ink Blog. This week, they're having their annual A La Carte Challenge; meaning that you can pick from any of the past year's wonderful themes. I chose to create a garland using small die cuts, sequins and button twine.
I used ALL Crate Paper Confetti products, with the exception of the Papertrey Ink products. I used Crate Paper patterned papers, ephemera, chipboard and a wooden piece. I tied Papertrey Ink's sweet Ivory Button Twine through the tag, and also used it in my garland swag.
These are the challenges I was able to find where I could link my card:
Nicole Heady's Papertrey Ink Blog - Make It Monday #236 - A La Carte from 2015 - I chose to use Betsy Veldman's sweet Confetti Garlands Tutorial from Challenge #199. I entered that challenge a few times (with some really cute cards, by the way) and never won. In fact, I've NEVER won at PTI, but I still LOVE their products and enjoy playing along. A girl can dream, right? I used PTI's sweet Ivory Button Twine and their Heart Die (smallest heart in the set of 3) to create my garland. I also placed a few extra small hearts here and there on my card.
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says "Let's Party" - I made this sweet PARTY CARD using lots of great Crate Paper products that can be found at SSS.
Little Scrap Pieces - Saturday Linky Party - Anything Goes for a chance to win some of Karen's sweet seam binding. What a fun challenge. Come and play along!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. It's always a blessing to have you visit, and I look forward to visiting your blogs to see what you've been creating this week.
Blessings to you all,
