So Happy!

 Just a quick card today and a quick post.  First I wanted to share my news.  Yesterday I was the featured stamper on Color Throwdown.  I am so excited to proudly display this blinkie on my sidebar now.

 What made it even more special is that it was for my card from THIS POST.  The day we reached the goal for Priscilla.  I have had several people ask me about her and I will have a special post tomorrow with some words from Priscilla herself.

  My card for today covers several challenges.  I made it for a little girl named Bekah.  I learned about a card drive for her from my blogging friend Patti J.  You can view the details HERE.  I also made this using one of the sketches for Verve's release week challenges and a new challenge blog that I learned about through Tosh HERE.  I joked that the challenge that Tosh was heading up had too many things for me to remember.  FIVE to be exact.  I was so proud that I was able to remember them all, but then I realized I missed one.  The card is supposed to be square.  So squint your eyes and PRETEND 'cause I already had everything adhered when I realized this.  I also wanted to participate in the challenge at Paper Maniac LLC which is to use black, white and a pop of color.  I somehow managed to fit all these challenges into one card.  That is amazing for me. 

One thing I wanted to point out is that the Faux Silk technique was to used on one of the challenges.  I didn't actually do any stamping because it was a bit too busy for the card.  However, the white base of the card does have the tissue paper adhered.  That's why it looks wrinkly.  This is not one of my favorite cards, but as long as it brings a smile to Bekah's face I'll be happy.

I'm off to the doctor and then to get some Sculpey clay.  I need to make a HAIRY TOE:)  What's that?...I'll share later:)
