Two Peas & Two Other Great Challenges

I was super excited this weekend when I finally learned that Two Peas in a Bucket has a blog.  I happened across it, enjoyed an awesome blog hop, and even won a gift certificate to boot (woo hoo!!).  So, I decided to see if they offer any challenges, and I found that they offer several. Here is a link to the challenge where my project is posted:

I took several elements from Jennifer Gallacher's  layout and implemented her ideas to design this sweet little paper bag album.  I definitely put my own twist on it when I "lifted" her work, but I loved so many elements from her layout that it was easy to get creative.

Thanks for taking a peek.  I just got it linked up at TwoPeas.  You will definitely want to check out all the fun on their new blog at  and if you aren't already a Pea, you should become one today.  I think I'm a "Bucket Head". . . .whatever that means.  Two Peas also has one of the best and most inspirational galleries on the entire internet.  You can great lots of great ideas there.  Check it out today.  I promise that you won't be disappointed.

I'm also entering this card in the new week's challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Blog which is asking us to pile on some embellishments. I certainly did that with this project.  Here is a link to their challenge: - Challenge #132

Finally, I'm entering this project in the challenge at Paper Sundaes.  Here is a link to that challenge which just started today: - Spring Blossoms

God's blessings to you,

  1. What a sweet card - I love how you found inspiration in Jen's layout and used it to create a beautiful card! Thanks for joining us - looking forward to seeing your work on future challenges as well! :)

  2. This is so fantastic, I just love all the little details you've added. Great buttons and papers!

  3. So lovely Karen, I really like your cards. Hugs, Marion

  4. Karen this is beautiful!! Love all the pretty colors, stitching and adorable embellishments!

  5. You've made some gorgeous cards that last few posts! Loving the beautiful colors and products you have been using. I adore the bunny behind the clear heart on this one! Well done Karen!

  6. Hi Karen! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I LOVE your shabby chic style and how you brought so many wonderful elements together on this card! Have a blessed day!

  7. This is beautiful, Karen! I love the little rose paper...I love roses! Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog! The stick pin I used on the ODBD Silk Challenge Card is one I made using supplies I picked up at Michaels. I think they are mostly Bead Landing. It's just a stick pin with some pearls and bling I got that comes on a string. If you really want to see some awesome stick pins, check out my ODBD DT Sister Sabrina Jackson at She's a master at these!!! Blessings! Kathy

  8. I am normally a pink person, but I love this card - in all its shabby vintage glory! The stitching adds so much - I have yet to do it (I broke my machine the last time I tried!). Love all the rich details and, of course, those great buttons.

  9. I love the papers you used and collage look of your card Karen. Love that heart epoxy sticker.


Thanks for your comments. They mean so much to me.
