Happy Birthday NAC77

February 19, 2013

Wow!  Another beautiful day in GA!!!!  I went to Physical Therapy this morning and I have spent most of the day organizing the supplies I want to pack to go to my scrapping weekend with my crafty girlfriends!  I am SOOOOO excited!  I have been in the house for almost six weeks with my knee replacement and I am slowly trying to get back in the swing of life.  I am doing very well, but I get tired very easily.  I know this weekend will be good for my soul and I know my dear friends will help me with anything that I need done.

I wanted to make a card for the Nacho Average Challenge, so I took a break from my organizing and created this card.  I absolutely LOVE the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack in the Celebrate the Everyday Catalog.  They are my absolute favorite colors.  Two of the Design Team members used the same papers, but I tried to put a different take on my card.  That is what I enjoy about card making--- If you give everyone the same papers it is amazing to see what people can come up with.  No two cards are ever the same!

  2. I like how you used the chevron punch at the top of your card! You're right, it does give your card a totally different spin than mine even though we used the same papers. That's the fun of doing a sketch challenge! Thanks for joining us this week at Nacho Average Challenges :)
