Caardvarks Challenge

I've been meaning to get around to this for over a week and I have simply failed until tonite. The challenge at Caardvarks is to create a card using a monogram. I have always loved the mini note cards I see people using to send quick notes to people and have wanted to make some but never sat down and took the time. So, tonite in between classes I did it!!! The picture isn't the best because it is late and dark outside and the only good lamp to use with the light box is in Cait's room and she is in bed so...........I did the best I could in order to get this uploaded in time for the midnight cutoff!!!

Here is my monogram card:


I used Cherry Arte paper, ribbon from my stash and my Just Rite monogram stamper - I've had it since BEFORE we moved from Austin (used my last coupon on it right before we moved while at Archivers) and just opened it tonite!!! I really love this little thing and have been browsing the site looking at the addons for it!!! So much fun and so easy to use!!! I can not wait to finish up the entire card set and the little box I have set aside to alter to hold them!!!

OK, off to work on stuff for the crop on Thursday and then to bed!!!

Happy Scrappin'!!!!

Beautiful...as always!


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
