RIC #10

oh oh oh my. Guess who entered RIC this week?

One of my favorite card makers...DEBBY HUGHES. My fab 4 are together in one challenge!

So I was thinking, maybe all of them would be looking at my work. Just maybe Debby would click on my name if my card was good enough. But...How can I compete with some really great entries? Maureen made a bow-licious masterpiece. She makes the best bows. Alyssa made a chevron confection. Arielle's mustache mania is color-rific. Chunyuan created a symphony of pattern that is winning material for sure ..I could go on and on.

So the pressure was on.

I sat in my craft room and after a tornado of thought and action, made this:

 Supplies: PTI happy trails stamp set. WHICH I BOUGHT BECAUSE DEBBY HAD IT BY THE WAY!

By the way Aga, I couldn't get your card out of my mind! It is like a piece of art, a slice of dessert, put in on a plate and serve it up!

If you vist my blog ( think there are 10 of you now), I ask you to please check out the challenge. The design team creates perfection every week. They make WORKS of ART. It's more than a card. They translate a runway picture into something magical. Save yourself a trip to your local art museum and visit RIC. And you can see all of these mentioned wonderful card makers and more ON THIS CHALLENGE SITE!!

Ok, I will stop now.

DEBBY: if you clicked on my card, would you leave a comment so I know you did??

now I wait...

In the famous words of Tom Petty: the waaaiting is the haaaardest part!
