Hello Everyone, come on...we all know what that means don't we...please turn over...dont it???

Well, old thick head here had a note, with a challenge link on it and a bit of info to keep me on the straight and narrow, although my writing can get a bit rough, and I write sloping downhill, just like my at the end of my info I had written PTO....did I read it as didn't....I looked at it and thought 'Why, Chrissy, Why....what does it all mean"???

So I did not turn the paper over, as I did not read it like that.....until I went searching for my other piece of paper with another challenge on it.....cant find that one....then the penny dropped...good grief...2 days wasted...the second challenge was written on the back.

So, now I'm making myself a challenge board, have not started yet, but it's in my my head...for a while....too scared to write a

Heres a cute card I made last night...........

Image is from 'Raising our Kids' real cute fifties images, paper from 'Grace Taylor Family Time '
ribbon from my door pieced the tree and cut out  a few tulips as I went crooked so the tulip is hiding it...butterfly sticker 10 for $2 couldn't let it go...and sky using Bev Rochesters template.

I'm entering this card into a challenge at Just some lines  and they want 'Outdoor summer'
and another at...PTO...Whimsy inspirations  and they want ribbons and bows,..well I have a bow, the ribbon was not long enough.

There you are that only took 1 hour, I'm getting better and have been quicker but forgot to get photos off the camera and had to fluff about doing that.

All done, will see you all later, and welcome to my new follower, thank you so much for joining me, my.. up to 194 now, feel a candy coming for 200.......................
