Fun Cards, Sad Endings

Quick post to get some blogging done this week!!

This first card was created a couple of weeks ago for my DBIL's BD.   Charlene to make a card/project around a quote you find from this website and incorporate some representation of time in your design.  So, I found the perfect sentiment for the inside of the card from there that says "Just Remember, Once You're Over The Hill, You Begin to Pick Up Speed".  Cute, huh?  There's tons of quotes to choose from on that site -- thanks so much Charlene!!

And, the sad part....this card is also is the last card I'm doing for my beloved DoubleDog Dare Challenge Group.  We took a pulse of the group and determined that we all were ready to move on.  So alas, it is bittersweet, but such good friendships were formed during that time!!  How lucky and honored I always felt to be in your presence: Bev, Julia, Charlene, Joan, JoAnne, Fran, Anne and (for a time) Michelle. Love ya ladies!!  Big hugs Always!!

This card is one I made recently playing around with chipboard letters:

I am currently obsessed with chipboard sticker shapes and alphas.  So lots coming soon using them -- (thanks to FRAN from Frantic Stamper!!)  The ones on this card by KI Memories are soooo cute!!   And -- I snagged them through the daily "Crafty Steals" web special!! If you aren't familiar, get on board quick - each day a different "steal" is made available, and some of them are insane!!  Be sure to check it out!!  This came as part of a package of matching DP pack, epoxy brads and the gummie stickers from the BD above.

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!

Oh Anne! This card is super fun and very fitting for the last card of the FUN DDC challenge. I am honored that I got to play along with you amazing girls for a year. You know I love you girl! Hugs,
