Time Zones and A Challenge



I made the card, took the picture and was getting ready to go to bed. I decided to double check the submission deadline time, to see if I could post it Monday after work or if I had to do it during my lunch break.  4pm AEDT...ok, I'll have to do it during my lunch, no problem. 

Then it hit me, AEDT, that's a weird way to say Eastern Daylight I googled and it was already almost 3pm AEDT because AEDT stands for Austrian Eastern Daylight Time.

I guess this is why it's called Global Design Project.  This submission is for #GDP150, a fun sketch with lots of entries.

Second Post...Another Challenge

It's been over a week since my first post and in that time, I've thought of countless things I wanted to post here...but I'm trying to pace myself.

Today's post is a response to the Freshly Made Sketches # 349 Challenge. 

When I first saw this sketch, I thought, "no problem, this is going to be easy," and then I didn't know what to do. So many people were submitting cards to this challenge and I was worried that my submission would never be as good.  I was worried about how I would make mine card standout.  So I spent my weekend working on tons of other cards, thinking that I would come back to this when inspiration struck.

And then, at the ninth hour (it was actually after 9pm on Sunday night), I decided it was time to put stamp to paper...whatever came out of the process, I'm here to have a good time and avoid doing the dishes.

In the end, it's a simple card but I love this paper and embossing powder so much.  I don't think the picture does the embossing powder justice as it has flecks of different colors in it.

What Am I Doing?!?

This is my first blog post and I have no idea what I'm doing and/or if I'm doing it correctly.  I figured it doesn't hurt to try right?!

Why Am I Doing This?
Simple, I've been inspired to create a card based upon a challenge some of my fellow Stampin' Up demonstrators posted and I needed someplace to display it...

But also because I want to be able to give the appropriate credit to the real authors when I case cards or find cool techniques.
