I have been surfing around the new website for The Angel Company and the blogs. I read about the Golden Egg Challenge and wrote down the criteria. Glitter, 3 layers, 3 colors, ribbon or floss and flower. I ended up making a card last night and got all finished and was way happy with it and realized I forgot the flower part. Ugh. So, I had to modify it. I am still very happy with the design and will have to copy it and try it with some other paper, colors, etc. Of course, my camera and computer don't seem to want to communicate this morning so I can get the picture of the card up here but I will consult with my tech advisor hubby and see what's up with that and get it up as soon as possible. I have been scraplifting for a while and just using designs I see and trying them out and modifying them but this was refreshing to just go with the raw materials and go for it. I love the results and am sure you will too once you get a chance to see it. Ugh.

I have a Mother's Day Market I am going to have a table at on Tuesday evening and so I have been prepping cards to make and sell at this event. I got a cute and simple idea from one of my magazines and went to play. I used my new Create a Critter cartridge and an old one that I need to get out and look into further called Animal Kingdom. A customer and friend of mine ordered some graduation, thinking of you, get well and sympathy cards for her business so I figured I would kill two birds with one stone. I changed up the card sketch a bit as I went along creating new cards. I love this simple but effective design. I will have a couple of these at the Project Playground coming up this Sunday April 17th.
