It's Friday and it's Challenge Day Again!!!

Happy Friday Everyone....  It's another fun filled Friday with a couple of challenges.  I am combining my posts to save a little time for myself, because for some reason I feel extremely exhausted.  Maybe it's the weather doing it, I don't know....

But on with the Challenges.  
This weeks Challenge over at The Stamping Bazaar is so simple....  "Anything Goes"  using a Stamping Bazaar image of course!  Can it possibly be any easier than that?

I used Marvin with Daisies which just so happens to be one of the 3 Valentines Digi's released recently.  I just love Marina Neira's cuddly little critters, and Marvin is no exception. She also has a special Valentines Sale going on for the new releases right now.


I stepped WAY OUTSIDE of my comfort zone on this card, but I just HAD to give it a try.....  Marvin is an adorable little Bat!  Is there any rule saying he can't be Valentine Red???

WHAT????  A RED BAT????  Awww, but I think he's soooo cute!!!  I was a little nervous about doing this, because I didn't want him to look like a little "Devil" bat, but rather a bat that was cheery with lots of Valentine Love...  Adding some bright pinks to the dark reds helped I think....  I used cotton candy stickles on his pink daisies.  I couldn't help but to distress, distress, distress...  You may be seeing LOTS of distressing from me ....  I finally got the wonderful Zutter Distrezz-it-all.  Wowee, It's so much fun to use.

I hope you'll find some crafting time, and join us over at The Stamping Bazaar for this weeks Challenge....  "Anything Goes".

Now for my next post......
Phindy's Place Challenge Blog has a fun "Embossing" Challenge going on starting today.  I honestly don't know what I was thinking, but I got so involved in making my card that for some reason the "embossing" part slipped my mind.... WHAT?  Can you believe it?  I'm making a card that is supposed to include embossing, and I get side tracked and forget to emboss.  Sooooo the solution to that is....  Butterflies!!!!  ha ha....  Phew .... saved myself on that one! 

This is yet another Valentines Card!  I just LOVE LOVE LOVE making Valentine Cards.  I used the adorable little "Chocomonster" from Phindy's Place.  Isn't she adorable?  I bet that chocolate is delicious, she sure looks like she's enjoying it!

Once again, I have some things on this card that are also on the first card from The Stamping Bazaar's card.  Can you figure out what it is????  There are at least 2 things that are the same!  =)

Thanks for stopping by, I can't wait to see if you have figured out what is the same on both cards!  ha ha....
