I am a cheater. A big ol' cheater. Today's Blogger's Challenge was to make 2 cards. Two cards using the same layout but different stamps...or same stamps different layout or colors...etc... I only made one new card. The card below I had made last month. That's just the way the cookie crumbles for this challenge. :P I am a cheater and I admit it.
Did I go too punch crazy on this Valentines card? I feel like I got a little silly with this card. I just felt the need to use as many of my Valentine "thingys" as I could on it. Almost all my new MS punches sans the little scalloped heart....but I did try to make some of those work on there too! Doilys, flowers, ribbon....Oh My! :) The Copics shown are for the Valentine's card.
OK....so now I have some news that I want to share....Last Tuesday a friend who does design work for Inky Antics, (who shall remain nameless....because I don't want to put her in a position with others of why she didn't pass on their information) emailed me and said that someone from Inky Antics may contact me about doing some design work for them because my friend passed on my info to them. Inky Antics needed projects with new lines they are releasing at CHA. Like in a couple weeks! Well Jackie (founder and Art Director of Inky Antics) Emailed me and asked if I could do some design work for them! I was/am so excited!! I got to use images that they haven't even revealed yet! I am floored that a company wants to use stuff that I make at CHA to showcase their new stuff. And they are compensating me to boot! It has been hard to keep this a secret. I thought I was going to have to keep it until after CHA....but last night I had the pleasure of seeing one of my projects on the Inky Antics Blog! This is one of the projects I made for the Worldly Women collection. I made 6 in all for that collection. I will share the rest here in February. I still have to finish up another collection this weekend. I have been up all hours of the night making projects for IA and trying to keep up with my regular cards. A few times I have gone to bed just as my husband is getting up for work at 4:30 am. I am pooped! But happily so!
So that is my excuse for not having made 2 new cards for this weeks BC. :) Please forgive me for being a cheater! LOL!
I hope that you have a Warm and Sunny Weekend!!
