Two Posts in One Day? Do I Need a Life?

Yes, you don't see me for weeks..or months... and then...BOOM.
Here I am twice in one day?
To my defence
 - I had to act fast, this challenge was going to be over soon, and I had to burn the afternoon oil! I jumped over to a challenge blog I have been meaning to try out since it started, and one an acquaintance of mine named Andrea Tracy-Tucker is a co-founder of. More on my kindred spirit Andrea later. :)

I really recommend you check out Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge if you want a fun and creative mixed bag of feature challenges. They have a fantastic design team!

This week's challenge was a Tic, Tac, Toe challenge! What's that, you ask?


Okay. Within reason.

You have to make a straight line - so...... for example I chose to go with "Gold - Sequins - Congrats"  for the win ;) .

I will admit... this card took WAAAAAY more time than I wanted it to. I had technical issues.
Technically I daydreamed and watched the snow falling outside...for the umpteenth day.
Technically, I changed my mind 3 times about what I wanted to do.

But I this is what I came up with! I used almost  exclusively Stampin Up! for this project with the exception of the verrrrrrry smouldering smoky plum card stock. The Bloomin' Heart thinlet dies are still my favourite for birthdays, weddings, or anything "girly"! I even went for a bit of shimmer on those flowers with a Wink of Stella (the picture doesn't do it justice!) And those sequins just add enough pop!

So check out the other crafty geniuses on the blog! I get so much inspiration from them! And I promise I won't post for a couple days. ;)
