My other challenge for this week is from my friend Jen. Since she has NOTHING to do right now (yeah, right), we thought we would do some challenges together and post the results on our blogs (check out hers at http://www.myscrapcloset.blogspot.com/ ). She challenged me to make a card based on the Day 58 challenge from 365 cards ( http://365cards.blogspot.com/ ) Hmmm...fish? A card with fish? Let's see what I can do with that. LOL I will post it when I am done.
In the meantime...here is Mr. Linky. PLEASE post your challenge project...don't make me beg. LOL

Card...no problem. Green...got it ( I put a nice blue/teal with it just for fun. I really like that combination). Ribbon...got it covered. Fashion. Hmmmm....fashion. Okay, I will admit it that this SAHM does not exactly follow the fashion trends. In fact, I would be a great candidate for What Not to Wear if anyone would like to nominate me. LOL I have liked some of the cool graphic T's that have been out for a little bit now, and think that if they were glittered they would be even better...so I translated that into the cutout flower that I stickled to within an inch of it's life. :)
As always, if you would like to play along, simply post your version of this project somewhere (your blog...a scrapbook forum or gallery) and paste the link below in Mr. Linky. I would love to see what you create!

Here is the view from my doorway. The light colored desk is actually my Grandmother's old sewing machine. I don't sew, but thought it made the perfect cricut desk. The big square table next to it was made by....are you ready for this....BILLY! It was a wedding present to me (we sort of did it together) and it is the perfect size. I love how deep it is. Under it is a 3 drawer system that hold my adhesive, blank cards and bind it all supplies. The white wire shelves hold my embellishments/chipboard/cuddlebug/bind it all and cute cookie jar with my new embellishment purchases. Yep. I like to look at them for a while before I put them away. Nothing wrong with that. LOL
I am SO lucky to have a double closet. Boy, do I need it. This side houses my paper and my pretty storage cubes. The cubes have mini albums to make, glitter/flocking/embossing poweders, punches, stickers/rubons/flat embellishements and, um, my chocolate stash. SHHHHH... The shelves above hold my stamps and some misc. stuff I need to sort through.
The other side of my closet looks a bit muddled, but the top shelves have my magazines and idea books (as well as binders where I store sketches that I print out) and the walls have holders for my movies (the ones no one wants to watch with mommy) and the bottom bookcase has things for me to alter and more stuff I don't know what to do with. LOL
Next to my closet is a great wire shoe rack that is PERFECT for my cricut carts, Ikea jars of buttons/flowers, ink and paint. Those cool buckets next to it are from Ikea and are on a rail system (also from Ikea) Super cheap. Seriously...just a few bucks. And it stores all of my ribbon.
Okay, the sad news is, that to be a good mommy, I have decided to swap rooms with Isabel (her room is TINY and has the smallest closet in the house). I really think she needs a double closet to help her have more play space. Sigh. I have NO idea how I am going to fit everything in her room, but I think we will swap this summer. I love to reorganize, so that part will be great. Sometimes it is hard to be a good mommy. :)

Our next challenge is : Make a card...use some type of fashion to inspire it...use a good amount of green and include ribbon. Sound easy enough? Make sure you link up when you finish your card so we can check it out.
One of the challenges I joined in this week was the 52 Sketches sketch #13. http://52sketches52weeks.ning.com/
Here is the original sketch:
And here is my version of it. And yes, I got a bit flower crazy. LOL I was just hanging out with sick kids and had all the time in the world to layer and embellish this page. Days like that are fun to have, aren't they? Calm kids and buttons spilling out all over the table. Nothing better. I chose this color scheme when I was putting away some scraps (the blue papers) and they fell on top of a yellow paper. I really liked the softness of it. They only thing I wish I had done differently was matt the patterened papers in black. I think the inking on the edges has a similar effect, just less pop.
Enjoy and I will see you in a day or two with a challenge from another site that I have been working on...One little word.

Here is sketch # 82:
Here are my takes on it:
I also have not been doing a good job about using my stamps, so I thought I would ONLY stamp a card and see how that went. I liked it, so I made a set of them in different colors:
Give the sketch a try and don't forget to post what you have created! I would love to see it!
