Just wanted to share a couple of things I got done last night. I'm having a BLAST playing along with the Scrapbook Heaven Freaky Friday Crop... lots of fun challenges, and the gals are GREAT!!

2SD 10/16 Christmas Card Challenge with Prize :o)

Diane over @ Two Spotted Dogs posted another fun card challenge, this time for a prize!! Here's the challenge, and BOY was it a challenge... FUN STUFF!!!

"This one was inspired by looking at Christmas cards at Target a few days ago. I noticed some cool ones that were done in just black and white. They were a nice change from the usual and very sophisticated. I thought it would be fun to see what you guys could come up with. So for this week, create a Christmas (or Happy Holidays) card using ONLY black and white.

The deadline is Wed., October 22 at midnight. Everyone who posts a card on this thread by the deadline will be entered into a drawing to win a one-of-kind Two Spotted Dogs card kit!"

Here's what I came up with after trying to come up with an idea FOREVER it seems, hehe, GREAT challenge Diane!!

2SD 10/21 Card Challenge ~ Photo Corners

Today's Two Spotted Dogs Daily Card Challenge is to use at least one photo corner on a card, easy-peasy. Here's mine!!
