...3 French Hens

Happy 3 more days until Christmas!!!!! I hope the weather clears up for all the holiday travelers. I did a few last minute shopping stops before 730 am and then after work. It made for a long busy day LOL. Nothing like everything to the last minute. This is all new to me, as I have said before, I have finished all things Christmas by November.

Anyways... enough about my daily ramblings ;)

Tonight's Challenges: 1. Frosted Designs has a new challenge this week *Paper Piecing and Distressing* We can choose to do one or the other, or both! Of course, as I am typing this I realize that it is definitely paper piecing. I read paper piercing. You would think that someone who prides them self on being very observant would pick up on such things - hmmmm... I guess not. I also had to scratch my head at what paper piecing was - but I think I figured it out LOL.

2. Creative Card Crew, for the next 2 weeks has an *Anything Goes* challenge. I can do this!! This is my first time participating in this challenge - I think it will be really fun!!

3. Charisma Cardz - *Anything but Christmas* I can do that too!!! Again, this is my first time participating in this challenge as well. I have been on the lookout for new (to me) stamping challenges now that I have started stamping.

I made this card for a little boy - as some you will know this is quite the challenge for me as I am addicted to my ribbon/bows, button and twine combo. Best to live outside the box sometimes!

Too bad I couldn't submit the paper piercing part - as I really did a lot paper piercing LOL!! Therefore, I will submit my entry under distressing - I inked distressed *Sigh*:

Card Ingredients: Recollections Rockets 'n' Sprockets paper; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Recollections and Inkadinkado stamps; Craftsmart Black and Teal inks; Copic and Crayola markers; random buttons and twine.

Happy Tuesday!! See you all again tomorrow!!! xo

Hi Deanne; The little guy that receives your card is going to be tickled. The robot is so cute, and the color combo is so bright and fun. You did an incredible job combining three challenges in this creation. Just 2 more sleeps till we see you! :) :) :)
