Thursday even card making






this week has been a mixture of good and bad but hey thats all part of life. I am just going to focus on the good in this post so here's for some good news, I made it onto the ABC challenge DT, http://abc-challenge.blogspot.com/2009/09/e-is-for.html , I am sure there are lots of projects lined up for the three new DT members, so looking forward to getting my DT work done. I also was part of the top three for my paper piercing card over at La La Lands and was also given an Honourable Mention badge from Caardvarks for my efforts in the seven day sketch challenge, happy to have it on my blog. There is one more piece of good news but I am not allowed to share it as yet.
Just typing this has made me feel alot better about things. There are so many things I enjoy about entering different challenges but the one thing that always stands out is the great work of so many artists out there. You all inspire me on a daily basis and for that I am very thankful.

Today's card is a simple card that I have done using mainly the gorgeous and new BasicGrey Indian summer range. It was kinda weird doing an Autumn card as in Sydney we are definitely heading into summer.

The challenges I have included in this card are-

Sweet sunday sketch challenge-http://kgiron.blogspot.com/

Allsorts challenge blog, Autumn-http://allsortschallenge.blogspot.com/

If the shoe fits...Scrap it!, Autumn-http://iftheshoefitsscrapit.blogspot.com/

Penny's Challenges, Birds-think I might be a bit late for this one http://pennyschallenges.blogspot.com/
Crafty Creations Challenges, Autumn/leaves-http://craftycreationschallenges.blogspot.com/

My next entry on my blog is probably going to be on World Card making day being 03/10, so looking forward to getting some cards done on this fun day. I might not be able to enter as many challenges etc as it falls on the same day as my parent's wedding anniversary ):.
