Awesome Challenge

You know all of those fun challenge sites that there is? Well, I have my own, personal challenge. My Uncle (and best customer) buys my cards and always has these really awesome ideas for the themes and colors. This week he requested a Viking card. Yes, you did read right, a VIKING CARD!!!! I love being challenged this way. My motto is if I don't know how to make it I better figure it out. Maybe it comes from my other uncle "teaching" me to swim by throwing me in the pool. So it was literally sink or swim. But probably it is my AMAZING grandmother that never let us give up. Okay I'm gettin' mushy! Anyway not like I'm curing cancer or anything but maybe a card can bring a smile to someone's face. I love my Uncle for making me think and CHALLENGING me. I make each one with lotsa love and pride :-)

Card Recipe: Patterned paper DCWV Once upon a Time Stack, silver metallic paper Bazzill, DCWV all other cardstock, Stamp Inkadinkado "Friendship", Ribbon Michael's, Gold embossing powder Stampendous, Brads American Crafts, Ink Ranger Distress Antique linen, Tea Dye, mixed with Staz On Timber Brown.

Thanks for stopping by hope you enjoy it, until next time amigos :-)


  1. This was seriously your most creative card so far. I couldn't even have imagined this end result for a "feminine viking birthday card" request!!! I am your biggest the not so creepy way :-)

  2. Hi mom, this is my favorite card. Love you.
