Blogger's Challenge (Aug. 24)

Edited: Ok, so I finally got a chance to do this challenge. After Mackenzie started to feel better, I started to feel sick on Sat. I'm still feeling blah - upset stomach and all. However, I was determined to get this done last night. This card uses all punches and only 1 stamp - the sentiment. I CASEd a card that my up-upline sent me for this challenge.

Don't forget - if you haven't already done so, be sure to check out the other Blogger Challenge Players for their creations (you can find the links to the right ------>).

All Supplies SU unless otherwise noted:
Stamps: Beautiful Day (A Muse)
CS: Chocolate Chip, True Thyme, WW
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Other: Lg Oval Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Spiral Punch, Brown Marker, White Gel Pen

I'll be posting my challenge card later today/tonight. Our challenge was to "Get Punchy" this week! Our focus on our projects was the use of punches. I have an idea in my head - just need to get a spare moment without having a sick child on my lap. :) My daughter (Mackenzie) has been sick since Monday. Poor thing didn't even get to have fun on her birthday (this past Wednesday) because she's been sick. Now she has a viral infection in her eye - started with this yesterday. So, on top of fighting the stomach flu - she now has this.

So, I've had lots of 'planning' time, but no real time to stamp. She seems to be doing better today, so I foresee some stamping in my near future! :D

Until then - be sure to check out the other Challenge Players (located in the sidebar to the right) for awesome uses of different punches!! Seriously - ideas I hadn't thought about and can't wait to try them out now!! I'm really thinking I need the Three for you Punch Box now after seeing the flower cards made with it!!

Hi Karen, Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. Yes I did take the picture of Bonneville Dam that is the current header on my blog. I love taking pictures but since we don't travel much most of what I normal take are either pics of my granddaughter, my flowers or our cats. I wish I had a better camera but that one works fairly decent. - By the way can't wait to see what you post for this challenge. Ida

Hey Karen...I hope you get to feeling normal soon. Your card is awesome. I have the spiral punch and do you know that I've never used it once! (oh the shame...) LOL Thanks for the inspiration to break that puppy out and get to using it!

Very cute, Karen. The photo came out so dark. I thought it was a black/white/gray card. Or, actually, it looked like it was a black and white photo with just the stamp block colorized. I had to go back to see what colors you used. I liked it in B&W though!

Very Cute card Karen, I love those lady bugs done using punches. I don't own the Spiral punch (can you believe that) but I really think that I need to get one. Thanks for sharing your card. Ida
