Day 149 & 199

Today's Challenge (#199) at 365 cards was to use a hexagon as the dominant shape on a card
(mine's not a perfect hexagon, i free-handed it and if i had tried any more to make the sides all even it would have been only about 1 inch big lol)

Aren't the penguins cute!!! This line from Art Impressions came out a few years ago when i worked at Stamp'N Memories and i had to have the whole line :) (it's ok though because i use them all the time...right?)

and yes, it is a shaker card :)

This was for challenge 149 - we had to use sponging on a card

New Trailer for New Moon :)

Attention Twilight fans, if you haven't seen it yet, there's a new trailer out for New Moon that's completely freakin' awesome :)

yes - i do still check stephenie meyer's website every day lol, i'm still waiting for her to announce that she's going to finish midnight sun :)

anyways, i have great new hope for the movie after this preview, after twilight i didn't really think they would do any kind of justice to the rest of the books, for instance i didn't think they could do Bella's pain right - the empty pages of the book were just perfect for what she was going through - but it's looking pretty good in the movie, and instead of hearing Edward's voice, Bella sees glimpses of him which i think will translate to the big screen better than a disembodied edward voice lol...

anyways check it out HERE :)

Challenges for Days: 188, 192, 193, and 198!

I'm almost finished making up for being MIA last week @ 365 :)

This was for challenge #193, a card recipe! (these are one of my favorite challenges!)

my craft room & Days 186, 194, 196, & 197 :)

So i said i was going to post this a week or two ago (my room hasn't really been clean since then! *hangs head in shame*)
This is my studio!!!! (and my husband's desk - all of the pretty things in the room and i end up staring at a poster of the joker when i sit at my unfair is that?!)

This is today's challenge at 365 Cards! - that's right it's super sketchy sunday!!!!
the sketch looked like a football to me, so that's what i made (i actually free handed a football lol, i'm so impressed with myself - drawing stick figures used to intimidate me :)

This one is for Day 196 - Just a Touch of color :)
um, it's pretty self explanatory (i finally got a chance to use my Hero Arts cupcake cling stamp!)

This one's for day 194 - be inspired by technology :)

This one is Day 186 - an ad inspired card

(i totally want those shoes!!!)

Thanks for stopping by! (sorry it was such a long post!)
I'm almost caught up in the 365 challenges i missed last week :)

(the heart is flocked but it's kind of hard to tell in the picture)

I'm working on catching up my 365 challenges
Here's Day 185: "Feeling Blue"
- we had to use three shades of blue on the card :)

My Mind's Eye Paper
Bazzil Paper Flower

2010 calendar

I'm gearing up for my fall class kick off on Wednesday (I haven't been playing along with challenges this week because i've been trying to design classes!)
I'm thinking this will be a class by itself because the stamping and cutting take awhile - but i might throw in a card or two :)

I'll probably be posting a bunch of other class designs tonight and tomorrow as i finish putting them together. This is the first time i've attempted putting a season of classes together like this - usually i finishing designing a class about an hour before it starts and all i've actually done is a monthly card club with some friends - but i've had people asking for different types of classes so i'm giving this a try...(i'm really nervous lol)

Let me know what you think!
