Happy Monday and another Great Challenge!

Happy Monday Bloggers!

One year ago today I married my best friend and most handsome man in the world - my husband David.  It's been a wonderful first year of marriage and I can not wait to see what the future holds for us.  He really is the most wonderful man in the world and I thank God everyday he is in my life.

Today also marks Challenge #4 at Paper Therapy!  This week the Design Team was challenged to create a card using nothing but scraps - all patterrned paper and ribbons used must be scraps, but the card base can be a full sheet of cardstock.  I love working with scraps so I went a little crazy on this challenge - even the card bases are scraps!  Here's my take on the challenge:
These 4 cards each measure 3.5" x 5.5" - if you're cutting A2 cards out of 12x12 cardstock, you get a strip measuring 12"x3.5" - this is where I got the scraps for my card bases. :o) The Patterned Paper is all scraps from a card class I designed several months ago for my CM group.

This challenge was super fun, and the cards I've made are going to a Summer Camp for abused children.  The counselors leave the kids encouraging cards every day so they are always looking for donations of handmade cards - any size/ shape/ colors - no envelopes needed.  If you are interested in donating cards to this cause, please let me know -  I can forward you her address, or you send your cards to me and I'll send them with mine.  All cards must be submitted by or before June 2011 for this next summer. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Don't forget to check out the other Design Team Members' blogs to see their fantastic creations.  They've all done a wonderful job -you can find them on my left side bar toward the top.  Stop by for a visit and leave them all some love.

Hope you all have a great week and get to participate in Paper Thearpy's challenge.
