BACK WITH ANOTHER CHALLENGE PROJECT!!!

I'm back and I must say, I don't know if I'll ever catch up to all you've done/are doing... LOL!!!  OMG, before I can finish commenting on one blog and moving on to the next, another posting for another  (or 2, 3, 4, etc.) more projects are already posting for places I've only just left.  And, all the blog hops!!!  I wish I could, I would love to blog-hop, but I'm only "barely" making it around to just visit!  LOL!  This is why I hate getting behind!!! I may not be there as soon as you'd like but rest assured I'm working my way there -- it's just a slooooow process.  However, I'm so glad to see everyone being productive!!!  I love the all inspiring projects!

Okay, have you ever had one of those days where you really want to craft and no project comes to mind?  Well that's the day I've had.  Sitting around thinking wasn't bringing me any fresh new ideas and I knew I wanted to participate in the "Love" word challenge at Frosted Designs that my fairy-sister Lori mentioned to me.  So I finally got up and grabbed some paper, some scrap ribbon, a few leftover flat-backed beads, and decided "what will be, will be".  I had absolutely no idea of what my project would be, how it would turn out, or anything; I just let my mind go with whatever flow it got, lol!  Although I'm not particularly crazy about the results, it's not too-too shabby, and I did get my project for the challenge.  Overall, it was fun to just let my mind wonder and to see what it came up with.  Here're the results:


The card reads "A Place Where Love Overflows... Home".  Here are close ups... just in case the Frosted Designs DT don't see my word "Love" on the card above -- it's there!!!  LOL!




I'll be back!!!

Audrey Audrey Audrey, your creations are so beautiful and unique! love them!....
I read about your nephew earlier and did not know what to say. I am a very emotional person but when somebody moves on to a better place I do not know what to say to their loved ones that stay behind (Within 3 years and as a young girl, I lost my father and all grandparents, later my mom commited suicede).
But after reading that your brother is doing better and the lives your nephew has saved and with thick tears running down my face, I want to say that It is wonderful to know you and your brother are doing good and happy to see that you like to look on the bright side of things...
Hugs, Gaby

Audrey,
First I want to express my sincere condolences to you and your family. He was so young and I am really upset to hear about this. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs to you! I haven't been on my blog as much as I would like lately so I am sorry that I am hearing about this so late (being pregnant is kicking my butt, but I love it! :)
I also want to say that I hope your crafting rubs off on me. I also want to craft but just dont know what to craft or have the energy....but I am hopeing to be whipping up more baby projects in no time.
Hugs,
Wendy

This is awesome...how did you make the box?

Ohhh Snap said...

It's really gorgeous! I know what you mean, some days my blog reader just blows up with everyone's creativity. I do what I can and have to be okay with that lol. One of the benefits of my messy workdesk is that when I start tidying I start playing with scraps and next thing you know I'm busy making something else lol. Cleaning only leads to more mess :D.

Audrey, Your card and box are just beautiful! I'm glad your back and doing better. I think your nephew donating his organs was wonderful, to think of how many families he helped is something to be proud of. Shari (cricutrookie)
