Going Crazy with the Challenges Again!

Hi Everyone!

Well, my warrior has departed and I miss him already. I am grateful he isn't going to be gone as long as others will; but I'm still going to worry about him every minute!
So, how shall I occupy my time over the next few months? Mmmm....let me think...oh I know! Stamping and crafting, of course! I actually had a chance to make this one the other day; but didn't have a chance to post it, which means that I've had plenty of time to go through 3 days worth of challenges to see which ones it fits. Once again, the list is long; and that's perfectly ok with me. I have to say that when I link my card to a challenge, I always visited those challenges and try to go around and comment on at least 10-20 cards per challenge. Therefore, sometimes it can be an ALL day affair for me in blog land. So, at least I know I have something to do while I'm sitting around watching TV in the evening.
Once again, I shall use the challenge list to share the details about the card. I do have to apologize about the quality of the photo. I took this picture with my phone camera instead of my camera. Probably shouldn't have done that; but oh well. Lesson learned. The bad thing is that I took my memory card to Wal-Mart yesterday to print some pictures; and now I can't find it...uh oh!!
Ok, enough with my ramblings. Here is the challenge list:

1. Get Sketchy: Sketch 74

2. Our Craft Lounge: Buttons and Bows OCL52 (I used some string to tie a couple of simple bows on the sides and then the buttons along the center and I used OCL's "Fabulous Florals" stamp set)

3. Phindy's Place: Spring is on the way (I thought the flowers and colors fit this challenge nicely)

4. Annabelle Stamps: Say it with Polka Dots (The polka dot DSP is from Cosmo Cricket's Restoration 6x6 pad)

5. Our Creative Corner: Cut it out. (I cut out and then stacked the flower in the center. This was one of the reasons I did not scan the card, so that I could do a close up of the flower)

6. Secret Crafter: Stamped Flower.

7. Little Claire's, My Grafico, and Stamp it Crazy: All Anything Goes challenges
