Catching Up Again!

I had to play catch up again on 365 cards! I am leaving for my trip to St Simon's on Tuesday so I hope to keep up until then and then play catch up once more when I get back on Sunday! I also mananged to get my Use It! challenge card done while working on these.

Today's challenge #68- I WANT CANDY- I have had this song stuck in my head ALL morning! LOL I used a candy image from a Studio G set. I used my CuttleBug to add some dimension to my cardstock and used patterned paper as my main background.

Challenge #67- THINK PINK- I used my new Dustin Pike image on this one! As soon as I saw the image I knew I would use my coveted Ms.Elizabeth sprinkles paper! I wish i had bought more when they had it at Dollar Tree! I love this pattern!

Use It! and 365 Challenge #66- YOU ARE THERE I AM HERE- I accidently wrote it the other way when I wrote the sentiment. LOL. I also combined this with my Use It! Challenge. We were to use a flower- check, a piece of metal- my CuttleBugged aluminum can! (thanks MXD for the idea!)- check, and fibers- check

Challenge #65- MOTHER'S DAY CARD- I made this one to give to the ABC Women's Clinic. If I finish the cards by Monday, I could present it with the cards. I may just mail it to them with a little "thank you" and maybe a couple $$.

Challenge #64- SKETCH- Very simple card. I used faux stitching on this. It also qualifies for the Mommysavers crop challenge to include stitching.

BTW: To all 365ers, I cannot comment on many blogs anymore because my computer seems to go crazy when I get on blogs. It jumps to Internet Explorer (I use AOL as my server) and then it keeps opening the blog endlessly until I hit ctrl/alt/del and shut down the entire computer. I have never had these problems on my old computer! Aggh! I will still try to view and comment but I may not be able to do many before I have this problem again! Sorry!! Thanks for all of your great comments too!

All the cards are fantastic!! love the monkey (I hope to buy some images from him soon) I had the same problem with endless tabs opening when viewing blogger pages. I updated to explorer 7 on sat and so far it has not happened again. Dont know if it will fix your problem on AOL as I use Yahoo with explorer. Have a wonderful trip :D
