I guess I just like to work under pressure!

Hello all,
Here it is, Thursday night and I'm once again, just finishing up my card for this week's Phindy's Challenge - yes, the deadline is only a few hours away! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Anyway, I'm exhausted so I'm going to keep this short and sweet.
This card is for 2 challenges:

Phindy's Place Challenge Blog: Paper Piecing - the hardest part about this was deciding which wonderful Phindy image to pick - she has sooo many (and just a hint, if you head over to her shop right now, you can find a sale going on in her "random surprises" category)
For Fun Challenges: Go Green (not the color) - This week, they are sponsored by Phindy! I LOVE that - 2 chances to win Phindy images in one week!! So, for the Go Green challenge, I used all scrap papers, I figure it's one of those reuse/recycle things!

Sneaking in under the wire!

Well, another crazy week but I just HAD to enter Phindy's Challenge this week. I've been going through withdrawl again! I just can't take this.....I NEED more hours in the day (preferably with the kiddos sleeping).
So, this week's card is for a few different challenges:
1.) Phindy's Place Challenge Blog: Color Challenge: Purple and Teal....I just love these 2 colors together but of course had a hard time finding the papers I wanted to use. This adorable little chicky is called "Chick a Boo", isn't he cute? You don't need to use a Phindy Image for her challenges but, with so many adorable images, how can you not?
2.) Top Tip Tuesday: Open Challenge........I just love an open challenge!
3.) Kaboodle Doodles: Thoughts of Spring/Easter........I'd say this card is pretty Easter-ish!

I hope you enjoyed this card. It was a bit difficult for me to find a spare moment or two to make it but I sooooooooo enjoyed the time I did get to spend crafting!

PS - Please forgive the picture. I know the centers of those flowers look a bit ugly, I didn't have time to let the glue dry on my glittered flower centers!

Crafting Withdrawl....

Hello everyone,
I have been going through crafting withdrawl. It's been a crazy few weeks and my papers, paints, scissors and glue have been calling my name but I've had to ignore them. FINALLY, this week, I got to play!! I decided to make a set of 4 cards for OWH. If you are unfamiliar with OWH, please check out my sidebar, they're a great group!
For this card, I used an adorable Phindy Image, "Never Forget I Love You". I wanted some bright papers because I'm really hoping that Spring is here to stay (well, at least until Summer can drag herself here!).
The card is for a few different challenges:

Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog: Let's Get Girly....between the papers and the eyeshadow and nail polish on this cute little elephant, I'd say this is a girly card.
Paper Crafting Journey: For the Ladies in your Life...Okay, I'm thinking this could either be to a lady or from a lady, either way, I just don't see it as a card that a guy gives to another guy....a lady has to be in the equation!
Phindy's Place Challenge: Humour - Make us Smile...Just looking at this image makes me smile. Adding the nail polish and the eyeshadow really makes me smile!! (not sure the make-up shows in the pic., there IS green eyeshadow and pink nail polish).
