challenge card

What a beautiful but cold February morning here is Michigan.  It snowed a lot overnight and the trees and lawn are covered with that pretty white stuff.  I don't think I will be venturing outside today though.  :)  Perfect day for crafting.  Any day is a good day to craft.

This morning I colored this digi by Sherri Baldy from her Besties collection.  It's one in her Easter series.  Come check out her besties here:

I entered my card in the 4 challenges below.

1.  If you are looking for a fun challenge blog be sure to go to  There is a freebie there for you to play.

2. If you are looking for another fun challenge is having a CAS get well card challenge. keyword is PSC68 I'm not really certain that my card is a good get well card, but I know when I was little I always liked to hold my stuffed animals when I was sick.

3. Bearly Mine Challenges- Anything goes!

4. CYDI Challenge #30- Little ones

This week the challenge at the besties challenge blog is to use 2 different patterned papers.  I used Momenta papers. I cut a skinny strip from one paper and added it along the edge.
