For the Cards Blog...

oops, I mean the new Create: blog - which now covers all the Northridge Publications (Cards, Scrapbook Trends and Simply Handmade)  in one convenient spot. It's excellent - they even have a series of video tutorials. I'm happy to report that Paige still has her weekly Cards challenge - it's just pushed one day forward. It took me a little while to get back on track but this week I actually submitted a card for the challenge. The theme this week is summer-themed cards, here's what I made:
I made this card last fall for a call for beach-themed cards. I loved it but it was rejected. I used the Anna Griffin Alix line and a 7 Gypsies sticker for the sentiment. Cut those waves with my ancient Creative Memories curvy paper trimmer.

Have you stopped by the Studio Challenges blog?
All the sneaks for the classes and challenges are up and so are the supply lists for the Cyber Crop on Aug. 21 - I'm am getting pretty excited to be a part of this. Need to gather my supplies!


Speaking of gathering supplies, tomorrow is my class with Julie and I am so excited. (Of course, I have packed nothing yet - typical of me to wait until the last minute.) I'll post the recap on Monday - hopefully with some fun photos! Now I get to go have some fun at the local antique center with my cousin.
Have a great Friday - thanks for stopping by!
