It’s all about the layers today. I gotta tell you in all of my days of papercrafting I’ve never been one of those girls that has paid any attention to how many layers I put down… until today, when our fearless for this month Christi told us we needed to “Create a card with 5 paper layers NOT counting the base card.” Then when you all of a sudden have to pay attention to how many layer your using it all of sudden becomes hard.
Not to shabby if I say so myself, well kinda shabby chic but not the other kinda shabby. And I may have been able to squeak it in with Kimme’s challenge over at SCS with the Hope You Can Cling To.
Now off we go to see how the other girlies faired.

Christi is our awesome hostess this month and when I saw the challenge this week it really made me start to think. Why? Because as she puts it “For today, it's all about you. Create a project that is just for you and your enjoyment.” EH? Make something for me? I think I did that once. But to do it again? OK!
Alright I am a HUGE reader…HUGE!! This is what I decided to do.
And I think it goes really well with the Some Odd Girl Challenge too to use fabric on your creation. That’s right the entire front is fabric and not paper. I backed it with cardboard. I also used one of the brand new releases from Some Odd Girl, Kiss A Prince Tia.
Gotta go see what the other girls made for their me gifts…

This month SplitCoast Stampers is partnering with UT MD Anderson Cancer Center for a month long card drive to benefit those that have been affected by breast cancer.
They kicked off the campaign Saturday on World Card Making Day (WCMD). And I have the privilege of hosting today’s challenge and tomorrow’s.
This one is going to be a little different and take a little twist on something you already know.
- Something old (preferably something that has been in your stash for a year or more, if you haven't been crafting that long *GASP* that's ok just pick your oldest thing)
- Something new (something just out of the wrapper or you know you just got from the store recently)
Those of you that follow the Friday Fun Challenge know we’ve done this one recently but it’s really a lot of fun and the rest of the challenge will come THIS challenge come tomorrow.
I hope you will take the time to play along. And then upload it to the gallery because from what I understand there will be prizes.
Stamps: 3 Scoops
Paper: Basic Grey Oliver (new), Neenah CS, PTI Kraft
Extras: PTI Spring Rain Saddle Stitch Ribbon (new), Copics, AC Glitter Thickers
Everything else was old but especially the Thickers

There’s a NEW release this week over at Some Odd Girl. And let me just tell you if you thought I drooled over the past releases just wait until you get a load of these babies.
They are PERFECT in so many different ways. I have had so many ideas just swirling in my head for these sweetie pies. Now I guess I better get some of them on paper huh? Wanna a peek?
I KNOW, RIGHT!!!!
Don’t forget it’s a new month so there’s a new freebie too!!
OK, don’t wait… RUN. You know you want to collect all of them!!

Alice didn't dare to argue the point, but went on: `-- and I thought I'd try and find my way to the top of that hill -- '
`When you say "hill,"' the Queen interrupted, `I could show you hills, in comparison with which you'd call that a valley.'`No, I shouldn't,' said Alice, surprised into contradicting her at last: `a hill can't be a valley, you know. That would be nonsense -- 'The Red Queen shook her head, `You may call it "nonsense" if you like,' she said, ` but I've heard nonsense, compared with which that would be as sensible as a dictionary!'--Ch. 2: Through the Looking Glass
Now last week’s challenge was Chapter 32: Journey to the Center of the Earth where Jen challenged us to fall down the rabbit hole… literally. She wanted us to create a card with a window or a card. Last week I was sick but I had already created some of my card and I wanted to finish it so I did.

As we approach WCMD I’m a little apprehensive because I gotta tell ya I’ve never had a chance to play along. Something has always come up. This may be the first year I get to do anything and I’m not sure what to do.
Christi tried to prep us a little bit for it though in this week’s challenge. She literally broke up the letters of WCMD and gave us something to do.
W – Write or doodle on your card
C – Corner Punch
M – Magenta
D – Damask
I realized as I was editing my picture that I forgot to doodle my hearts on though and I have a confession that I didn’t feel like retaking the picture. Since I’m giving this to my friend tomorrow because they went into labor today to give birth to their brand new baby girl, I’m not sure it will happen. Another 1st because I don’t usually give away my cards this fast when I make them unless I specifically make something on the fly for someone. I must be on a roll. UH OH!! Watch out!! hehe
