Hi everyone. I didn't get a post up yesterday because the weekend got away from me. I told you we went to pick out carpet for our bedroom on Friday. Well, we picked it out and paid for it and arranged for installation on Thursday. We decided on Saturday to go ahead and get the furniture (except for the bed) out of the room. Then we thought as long as the bedroom was empty of furniture and new carpet was coming, it would be the perfect time to go ahead and give the room a fresh coat of paint. So, we spent the rest of Saturday painting the room! I think we may have all the painting in this house done for a couple years now, at least I hope so!
So, with all of that work on Saturday I didn't make it to my stamp desk at all and had nothing to show you yesterday!
However, today I have TWO cards to show you!
My first card was made for the DareU2DigiStamp challenge to make a card with pink and black, and also for 365 cards challenge to make a funny card.

I used the Piggy Love image from Squigglefly and colored it with copic markers. I faux stitched in two corners and computer generated my sentiment. Here's the inside of my card
I almost put "We use oinkment" on the inside but I liked the "cured" aspect better. Maybe I was hungry at the time and cured bacon sounded yummy! LOL!
Last Monday I told you I was going to start showing you a Christmas card every Monday in an effort to get some Christmas cards done, so here is this week's Christmas card

I used my old favorite Feathered Friend image and colored it red this time. I chalked the sky in a darker blue and then stamped some Hero Arts snowflakes and embossed them with a glitter embossing powder. Here's the copic colors I used
and another shot of the card at an angle so you can see the glitter better
Today is Squigglefly's challenge and you can see what the challenge is at the Squigglefly blog. I hope to have a card for that challenge finished this afternoon. I'd love to see you play along! If you do, don't forget to upload your card to Mr. Linky! Plus I have heard that Rhonda is offering up some prizes for the challenge! Head over to her blog to find out the details!
Also I saw that Squiggledfly is going to be having a Digi Day event at Card Universe on the 18th of July. I don't know all what's going to be happening, but I'm sure there will be challenges and that we'll have some fun, so I'd love you join us for that!
Several ladies on the yahoo group have difficulty navigating Card Universe, but they still want to join in on the digi day fun so I've decided that I'm going to report all digi day events to the yahoo group and everyone there can take part. I'll upload cards for the yahoo people to Card Universe. So, if you're more comfortable with the yahoo group come join us there!
Have a great day, and thanks for looking!
