Challenge-centric...

I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon. -Author Unknown

This post is Chock Full of Challenges!! (Chalk Full or Chock Full??? Hmmm, must look that up!)

I started with my NEW Sugar Nellie stamp "Wish," I Love Happy mail Delivery days!!! :D I was excited to get my shipment because I wanted to try the new Sugar Bowl Challenge (Three...Thre different Patterned Papers and three Kinds of Embellishments.) I used 3 of the prints in the Eva pad by Basic Grey and my embellishments are Primas, Sticky Hearts and Ribbon. I also used this as a starting point for my Friday (yes, I know...it's Saturday...give me a break, I had a hard class all week!) Blogger's Challenge (Same but Different...2 cards with the same layout/colors and different stamps OR same stamp/colors and different layout.)

For my Second card...Same but Different, I also added in two more challenges. My friend, Tammi challenged the LOSTies this weekend to make a Valentine with a Non-Valentine image and to add at least one Heart, AND, I used the Whiff of Joy Monday Challenge (Color Scheme Purple/Green.) I used my Willow with Cocoa (adorable, no??? Who else is Anxiously awaiting the delivery of the Pre-Release Kit???? I splurged and used my eBay $$ that was sitting in PayPal and ordered them yesterday!!!)

Just as a Wrap-up for you Challenge Chasers...
