Mojo Monday + MelJen Girly Colors Challenge

Hey ya'll. Today's card is another challenge combo.I started with the sketch (by Janette Olen) challenge contest over at Mojomonday. I used girly colors to qualify me for the the #2 challenge over at MelJens Design Team Blog. I also used her cute as can be "Cuppa Tea" digital freebie. You can find it here...http://meljensdesigns.blogspot.com just scroll down a little bit! I started with lavender cardstock...did I mention I am making my own cards now rather than using the pre-bought ones as before...this gives me more color choices...I got tired of white. I used the cuttle-bug diamond-plate folder on the card base front. Then I used paper studio papers and some papers printed from my "scrapbook factory" program. I have a LOT of paper but I find myself going back to the printable ones over and over. I think because it is easier than flipping through those huge paper books...lol. I changed up the design slightly by turning the card on its side so my peony nesties would fit! Thanks for checking it out and have a happy scrapp 'n friday! Cheryl

Cheryl, this is a WONDERFUL card! I love all the textures you used, AWESOME work!

I am most happy that you chose to join my blog and that I checked out your profile. My daughter, 10, also has Asperger's and although she attends public school, I have had to fight for every little thing for her since Asperger's is not recognizable by looking at someome like many other disabilities. I am ALWAYS eager to extend my support group of moms with Asperger's children to talk with and share stories and frustrations. Please e-mail me anytime to talk danmoose@aol.com HUGS.

Hi Cheryl, you don't know me but I saw your comment about not having very much paper to play with to make your cards, and I'd like to help you out. If you're interested, send me an email to kajikit AT gmail DOT com and I'd be more than happy to send you an envelope loaded with card-sized pieces of nice paper to play with. I've got more than I can use!
