Down to the wire . . .

OMG this is going to have to be quick!

I've been so busy this week that I totally forgot about the new challenge over at PaperCrafter's Corner and it ends at midnight TONIGHT!!!  The challenge is for their Papercrafting Inspiration Magazine Monday Challenge and here's the magazine cover inspiration we had to work with this week ...

With not much time left to really be 'creative' and still get entered before the deadline ... 
here's what I came up with ...
The first thing I saw in the magazine inspiration piece was all the WORDS and so that was my starting point.  Next were the images on the right side that looked like ships at sea (probably battleships) so that was my next point of reference.  And lastly, if you have a loved one at battle, you are going to be writing him/her love letters to let them know you are thinking of them ... hence to post card reference.

Well that's about it for tonight.
I've been working on craft show items all day and I'm ready to call it a night!
Hope you've had a productive and fun day!

  4. Awesome card, Darlene. Such a great collage piece! I know what you mean about it being cold. Here in Texas, it's usually in the 80's, but for the last three days, the highs have been in the low 40's. It's so hard to work on projects when your fingers are freezing. Have a great holiday with friends and family, will visit again soon.
