Crafting When We Can Challenge Is Open!!

I am so excited!  I have been waiting for this day for a bit now!  Why you ask?  Well, I have been a member of a couple of challenge blogs with some amazing (AMAZING) crafters and when those challenges ended, we decided to start fresh and introduce our Crafting When We Can (CWWC) Challenge Blog.  See, I have a new badge to the right, and everything!!

To start us off, we decided to keep it easy...Yep,
ANYTHING GOES!

And, how exciting is it that our first sponsor is:
Fresh Brewed Designs


I am lucky enough to be working with Banana Split for our inaugural challenge!  I love Heather's designs....make sure you stop by and see all that she has in her store!

By the way, you can click on the picture below for a larger view....

I decided to make a gate fold card to use up a couple different dp's in the same line.  My card stock was all out of my scrap file.  (If you are joining me for the first time, you know that I love to use up my scraps!) My designer paper is from Close To My Heart and the red pearls are from Michael's.  My sentiment is computer generated and says "You are my cherry on top".  I have left the inside completely empty at the moment.  I am sure I will need a card to give my DH, so when the time arises, I will add an appropriate message!

Thanks so much for joining me today!
Please, please, PLEASE stop by the challenge blog with an entry this fortnight (that's two weeks, ya know?)
HUGGZ,
April

That has got to be the happiest ice cream sundae I've ever seen! The sparkly topping is wonderful, as is that saying you used. Congrats on the new challenge blog -- I've joined and look forward to playing. :-)
