Early Morning MOJO!

Good morning crafting chickies! It's been such a quiet, blissful morning so far...DH had to be up at 5 a.m. to leave for work, so I prepared everything for him last night so I could sleep in this morning, right?..Ya....well...I was laying there at 5:30 a.m. thinking about Julia's sketch challenge over at Little Paper Shop and the colors over at The Color Dare and what stamp I could color up with those colors....yadda, yadda, yadda....*SIGH!!!* LMAO!

So...needless to say, I got up and made some yummy cinnamon-flavored coffee, flipped the iPod on, and sat down and got to work - it was soooo nice to watch the sun come up and craft!

Here is the list of challenges I incorporated in my cutie patootie "spring-colored" card!!

1. Papertake Weekly Challenge: Buttons, Bows, Brads & Bling
2. Your Next Stamp Challenge: Big Bow
3. Pals Paper Arts: SPRING
4. Little Paper Shop: Sketch Challenge:

5. The Color Dare: Color Challenge:

...and this is my card:

I left a sentiment off (which is hard for me to do) because in my opinion, it could be used for a shower, a girlfriends birthday, anniversary or just a "thinking of you' card. What do you think of her? This bella is soooo cute (as they all are) *giggle*

I have a few more challenges I would like to tackle today so I am going to go and refill my coffee mug, throw in some of DH's muddy, greasy coverall's into the washing machine, and then I'm going to call Tamie from Paper Infusions and More and I'm gonna CHALLENGE her to another crafting day!! HEE HEE...whatever it takes to get her to craft, right?! She did awesome yesterday - you should pop on over and check out her submission for The Color Dare's color challenge! I am also throwing out a CRAFTING FRENZY CHALLENGE to Leanne from Banking on Crafts, and Melissa from My Paper Obsession!

I can't wait to see what beeeeyyyooootiful creations come of this!! *giggle, snort!!*

Have a super dooper, sunshine-filled Thursday!!!
