--- Blog Hop Tuesday ---

     Just popping in to give you a heads up about a Valentine's Day Card blog hop! It begins tomorrow (Jan 19th) at 8 a.m. EST. The CardMaker magazine and the Ribbon Resource blog teams are hosting the hop. There will, of course, be a giveaway. Can't have a proper blog hop without fun prizes! I'll look forward to your visit tomorrow as you hop through my blog!


Something New, Something Old Challenge ODBDSLC269

     Lots of red glitter and bling for Mom's birthday!
     I don't think it's possible to have too much glitter or too much red for Mom. In fact, she wore a bright, red wedding dress when she got married a few years back. She is just so much fun to be with!
     I created this card for the Something New, Something Old challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs. My something NEW is their Happy Birthday Die (CSBD77). My something OLD is their Fancy Foliage Die (CSBD33).
     The beautiful, red glitter paper is from DCWV's Holiday Glitzy Glitter Stack.
     Come play with us! Hop on over to ODBD's blog and check out the rules. And, I must say that ODBD's challenge has been changed from weekly to monthly. So very happy about that! Makes it easier for me to play and not always think I missed yet another challenge because I couldn't find the time to create.

CardMaker Blog Team!

     I'm on the CardMaker Magazine Blog Team!!! I couldn't be more excited to work and share my cards there. We are already working on blog hops and blog posts. You are in for some fun times, new techniques and great organizing tips! I can already feel the rebel in me rising to the top. Who says you must adhere your embellishments and layers perfectly straight!?! Who says turquoise and orange can't go together!?!
    Make sure you follow my personal blog www.cottagebelow.com and the CardMaker blog too http://www.cardmakermagazine.com/blog/ so that you don't miss any of the fun.

Anything Goes Challenge ODBDSLC268

     Thanks so much for stopping by. Today, I have a card for the challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.
     I started by making a cream card-base. I used turquoise and purple matting. Don't you just love those colors together!?! I used a turquoise foil sheet to die cut the flower and added a few purple 'diamonds' to finish it off.
     I used the following ODBD stamps and dies:
          No Words sentiment stamp F515
          Fancy Foliage dies CSBD33
          Asters & Leaves dies CSBD57
     Don't forget to check back in tomorrow to see what my new adventure is.
     May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands, Pamela
