Crazy4Challenges - C4C53


Happy Saturday everyone! I have some fun news to share with you today! The girls on the Crazy 4 Challenges team are unfortunately losing one of their founding members, Vicki Garrett. While I know they're sad to see her go, I'm happy because they've asked me to join the team! The girls on this team are some of the most admired stampers out there, and I'm just tickled pink to be rubbing elbows with them! I can't wait for you to see all the fun challenges that are coming up!

The challenges for September are being hosted by Jocelyn, and she has a fun, seasonal challenge for us today! Since school has resumed for most everyone (or will very soon!) our challenge today is to create something related to books... whether you make a bookmark, stamp something with books, or maybe create something based on your favorite book, just be creative and bookish!

Now, I guess I'm hoping I don't get thrown off the team right off the bat because I guess I was thinking about books when I made this card but there isn't really any books there. :( Honestly, I was thinking about sending this card to school on Tuesday with my daughter to give to her Senior Government teacher, because today that teacher showed me that at least someone in our high school has a little compassion and understanding and I wanted to thank her for it. So here's my teacher thank you card....
Since I'm a fan of Jen delMuro's Sketch for You to Try on Facebook, I got a little sneak peek of her sketch for this week and used it for my card. The designer papers I've used are from October Afternoon, and I have a mix of cardstocks in my design and some ribbon from Creative Impressions. This sweet little stamped image is a Pure Innocence stamp from My Favorite Things called Apple for You.

And hey, did you know that today is actually the first anniversary of the Crazy 4 Challenges blog? How cool is that? Stop by the C4C blog for all the challenge details and there you'll also find Mr. Linky for adding your own creation. Remember, if you upload to an online gallery, use the keyword C4C53. Then check out the creations from all the Crazy Girls!


A big, big thank you to the C4C girls for asking me to join their team.... I'm so excited! And thank you, dear readers for stopping by today and letting me share my good news! Have a GREAT weekend!
