Card #4 of the Week

Hey Guys!!
First off, I apologize this is up late yet again! I slept in this morning, after getting to bed rather late last night. I could hardly sleep last night after wanting to see Molly's new Cricut Imagine work!! She got the lemon out of the bunch ((LOL)) so PC is sending her a new cartridge to fix the problem. I told her, she should of told them to ship it next day and Cristi said she should of requested an additional cartridge for the inconvenience--AGREED!! lol Then, this morning, I woke up to a FANTASTIC email saying I could receive an additional 15% off of sale items between 12-6pm at Michael's!! Now you know I was right on that! I got some Fall/Halloween Paper Pads (2pks), Recollections card stock (3pks), 2 boarder punches (1 for an upcoming blog hop giveaway), boarder stickers, and fall flowers for a centerpiece for $45!! I was very happy! Came home and skyped the afternoon away with the Fabulous Cristi while I created today's card.

Today i pulled a fast one......NO OLD WEST for today's card!!! **Gasp!** Although I love the cartridge, I was really wanting to use my new(to me) Scrappy Mom's "Sweet Somethings" Stamp set. I had gotten it a few weeks back and haven't used it so I decided it was time!

I really like how this card turned out!!! I added Glossy Accents to the white accents on the card and the tea in the teacup, but it wouldn't come up in a picture. And I Adore the Sentiment!

NOW......onto some (what I consider) exciting news. Like I had mentioned early on in the week, I had been trying to figure out different ways to not only challenge myself but some of my friends. Like you've seen, last week the challenge for myself was to shoot a video every day. This week was to post something using the cricut every day. So, after much discussion with Cristi and Molly, we've decided to start Creative Scraps. Its pretty much a Challenge week for us, happening every other let me explain how it will work. Because I love my gig as a Made by Momo Tuesday Challenge Designer, I didn't want that to interfere with Creative Scraps, so our challenge will be on the week that Momo's challenge is not. Starting on Monday, September 20Th, we will have our Creative Scraps Challenge week. Now the week will have a theme of some sort and we'll all be showcasing our projects. So here is how week will go

Monday & Thursday: Cristi will be creating a project shown on her blog at Scrappin 5 Little Cupcakes
Tuesday & Friday: I will be creating projects shown right here!
Wednesday & Saturday: Molly will be creating a project shown on her blog at Army Wife Learn the Cricut

Now.....on Sunday, All 3 of us will have a new project posted up here on my blog but with an added element (color challenge, must use: ribbon, buttons, brads, must incorporate a particular image, etc.) and we will have a Special Guest Designer to give you a little more inspiration!! Sunday will be your chance to enter in on the challenge!! I'll have a Mr.Linky up here on my blog and you will have a week, till Saturday the 26th, to link your project! Then on Sunday, we'll announce the winner!

I hope you guys enjoy this and join in on the challenge!! Have a good weekend!!
