Are you loving the Spellbinders blog frenzy?

These ladies are doing some fabulous work! Wow! Here is a try by lil ole me to do something fabulous with these dies. They are gorgeous! I used the Eyelets Pendant and Eyelets Borderabilities for this card. They are so much fun to play with. Since the dies are so detailed it is best to turn your die 90 degrees and run it through the machine again so you can catch all the detail. You can check out the other samples at the blog frenzy blogs! You won't be disappointed. You can also enter to have a chance to win new Pendant dies!!

Sorry I haven't been around much lately girls. I am swamped! I am working on gorgeous stuff that I can't even show you. I have tons of deadlines and life is going to be busy for me until the end of July. I will still be doing my Wed challenges. Last week I didn't show you because the challenge was for Father's Day and I didn't want anyone seeing their card yet. I will put that up tomorrow along with the challenge for this week.

Spellbinders is doing a blog frenzy right now and you can win these beautiful dies that I have been playing with for weeks. :) The girls are doing fabulous things with them. You can find the details at the Spellbinders blog as to who is doing the frenzy each day. Follow the directions and you can win these gorgeous dies!!!!

Also I wanted to tell you that we are counting down the final month to the return of our missionary son who has been serving the people of Brazil for the last two years. We received word last night from the mission home that he will be returning July 24th at 5:34 pm!!!!!!!!! This Mom is so excited to love on her baby boy who isn't a baby anymore. Happy 21st Birthday Jacob!!!! We will celebrate big time when you get here in just 31 short days. :)

Have a great day and enjoy the possibilities!!

Wednesday challenge ~ Grid Technique

I adore Christine's images. :) They just make me smile. I challenged the DT today to use the Grid technique from SCS to use on their project. You can see their beautiful work here at the ATS blog. I decided this gorgeous paper had to be used to paper piece her outfit. Grin. I love her style. Isn't she cute?

The challenge today at All That Scraps is to do a box in a bag. If you want to play along you can find the details here. I had a lot of fun and did two projects matching.
