Creative Sisters Monday Challenge #8 and a Winner!!!!

Good Morning Everyone!

Here in Maine it has rained and rained and rained and...well, you get the picture.  The biggest problem with rain is that my satellite connection goes down and I am unable to do anything online.  But, here I am for the moment - a week late and a project short of our Creative Sisters Monday Challenge.  So before I lose my connection again, I want to announce the winner of my challenge #7 - Flowers.  The winner of the card set is 
 DONNA - DIARY OF A SCRAPBOOK ADDICT

Congratulations Donna and thank you to everyone who entered our challenge.  The projects were amazing!  If I haven't visited your site to thank you for your entry, I will be - as my connection allows.  I appreciate each and everyone of you taking the time and your talent to enter!

My sister is hosting Challenge #8, which is BIRTHDAY!!!!  My birthday happened to be yesterday and I am so excited to see all the entries for this challenge.  For my project, I am sharing my hubby's card with you.  He went down to my studio and used the scraps he could find (he even raided our grand-daughters box, looking for things he could scraplift.)  After looking at his card - you can understand why he requested a "hubby box" of cast-offs, so he will have something to work with for his next creation!!!   I think my "scrapping" is rubbing off.....

If you look closely you can see that he got carried away with the glue stick and it's sticky - also covered in yorky hair ( he was holding one or all three on his lap to keep them quiet) 

Today in my studio, I will start a hubby box - so that he has some things to choose from the next time he makes a card.  Perhaps one day he will even attempt to use the cricut!!!   Thanks to my sister Linda - my gift was amazing!!!!   He bought me KATES ABC Cartridge!!!!   My youngest son got me the BOTANICALS Lite cartridge...Now, I just have to iron that basket of clothes - and the day is mine to get creative!!!!

Your husband's card is wonderful. All the imperfections just make it that much more special. That's why people love homemade cards right?!
