Bling Birthday Card in Amethyst and Crystal Blue for Heart2Heart Challenges

After spending a lot of time with my good friend the snow shovel today, I decided I needed some time to recuperate in my craft room.  Lucky for me, Heart2Heart Challenges posted a new challenge yesterday - use Amethyst, Crystal Blue and Bling on a project.  To play along, simply use some CTMH product on your project and link your photo up with our Mr. Linky tool on this week's challenge post!  Click HERE to go to it!



I needed a birthday card for my DD who is turning 16 tomorrow - EEK!  Can it be possible my little baby girl is 16 years old?!?  I'm so proud of the young woman she has become - she is strong, smart, persistent, loving, helpful, generous, beautiful and hard working.  She is working so hard at school this year taking lots of difficult classes with tons of homework and she keeps at it even if it means doing homework all evening and all weekend.  We all just love her to pieces!

I've also been a busy girl working on display items for my Open House celebration of the Spring/Summer Idea Book.  While I'm not quite ready yet to show off those projects, I thought you might get a kick out of seeing the whirl wind disaster I can create making just ONE little card!  No, I am not a neat creator - I keep pulling out stuff from my stash until I get the look I want which usually means lots of boxes and bags open and on my desk with my creating space getting smaller and smaller!


Hope you are all staying warm and dry on this snowy night!

Cute! I like the "bling" in the middle of the flowers. Nicely done, girl! :-)

Gorgeous Card! The same thing happens in my craft room when I create....I barely have room to assemble the final product!

Happy sweet 16! She will treasure your beautiful card. Thanks for sharing a peek at your crafty space. I had to laugh because I can totally relate!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one whose desk "shrinks" when I work. Great card. I love the trend to use big letters or numbers on cards.

Your daughter will love the card! I can completely identify with the amazing tornado that comes with creating! lol Glad I'm not the only one :)

You are a real producer, Paige! I never would have thought those gi-normous shimmer brads would be so great when they first showed up! Great FUNN!
