Some Good News and a Fun Card

Thank you to all my wonderful Internet friends who always have such a sympathetic ear! I had another rough weekend at work, (but this time I won't get into it and bore you with all the details LOL!), so it was so nice to read your wonderful and encouraging comments this morning.

My good news is is that I won a couple of challenges that I played in. The first one happened a couple of weeks ago, but I'm first getting around to sharing it now. LOL! My scarecrow card that I made for a Paper Craft Planet Sketch Challenge was selected as their feature 'Shooting Star' and was featured in their gallery and newsletter. And my Christmas Card that I made using the August Sheetload Sketch won for best card. I think I won a stamp set or two for that one! Yippee! Thanks for letting me share some good news for a change. LOL!

The card I'm showing you today was made for last week's sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I used the MFT image 'The Poppies' and colored it with Copic Markers. The paper is Cosmo Cricket 'Early Bird'. Isn't it fun? I cut some stars with my Cuttlebug and added a clip and ribbon for embellishment.
Thanks for looking and have a great day! Amy


  1. Hi Amy! Glad to hear that you survived your weekend. I'm so sorry that things are tough for you. Congratulations on winning your challenges! Wow! Two in one month! Your cards are so cute, I'm not a bit surprised! I haven't ever tried the sheetload yet - gotta jump on that someday! Girl, I got my blog candy! Wowzers!!!! Just the little paper pack by itself was worth winning! You spoiled me so rotten! Thank you so very much. I hope that you are the winner of my candy in a few weeks!!! Keep checking - I'm going to the city on the 28th to do some creative shopping! Thanks again, you are wonderful!

  2. Congrats on your wins, very well deserved. They were both adorable cards as is the one you have today. Love the colors and the layout!

  5. This is a wonderful card, Amy. I love your color combo.
    I just read your post from yesterday too, and I can totally relate. Your work day sounds pretty much like mine does (about identical), and I am so grateful that now I only work once a week. Isn't it just amazing how rude some costumers can be?!

    Congrats on winning those challenges!

  6. Congrats on your wins! That's awesome. I love this card. The image is adorable and I love love love the patterned papers. The sketch you chose to use those papers is perfect to showcase them.
