Summer Card Camp--Week 1, Card 1

Here's my try:




I have a hard time with color challenges but this was a lot of fun! This camp is crazy insane. There are 3 days left for entries and there are 630 entries so far!! I've never seen that level of participation on a crafting event before!

I have to give really special to MDH for making me my light box. I've struggled with taking photos of my creations to share, that's mainly why I don't post often. But MDH kept at it until I could just point and click. I'm still learning but at least you can see the card with the colors now! Thanks Love!

Supplies:
Paper-Cosmo Cricket "Pixie-Licious" 6x6 mini deck & PTI Kraft
Stamp-Lawn Fawn "Jessie's ABC's" & "Bannerific"
Ink-Distress Inks in Wild Honey & Spiced Marmalade
Twine-The Twinery
Pen-Uni-ball Signo broad white
Other-button, rhinestones

Let's Start Again!

I got into a funk with not posting. But guess what? Thanks to the wonderfully talented Deborah at the amazing Lily Pad I created a light box out of a cardboard box! Yippeee! MDH helped me put it together and it works great but we still need better light bulbs, we tried to get "natural light" but our local store didn't really have any. But the detail is amazing! I'm actually excited to post my projects now! I have a box full of cards that give me the stink eye because they never got introduced!

AND, this card camp that Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire are putting on has totally motivated me to get my brain back in the blogging world! Check out the card camp here. It's a month long and there are amazing guest designers! My top favs are there like Vicky and Nichol.

So, fingers crossed, I will become a pro in no time!

Thanks for stopping by my corner!
