The Sisterhood & Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Day . . .

That's right ... I have TWO challenge 
creations to share with you today! 

First is my card for today's challenge at The Sisterhood!  I happen to be your hostess today and I'm asking you to ADD SOME SPARKLE, SHINE ... BLING to your creation.  How easy is that!!  I just happen to have this gorgeous glittery ribbon that I purchased at the Flower Factory a year or so ago and couldn't wait to use it on SOMETHING!!  LOL!!   The designer paper is from DCWV Nana's Nursery and it too is 'sparkly' ... add a sentiment & a rub-on ... viola!  Done!  I hope you'll come join us for some fun ... you have until 11 PM on Tuesday, Oct. 19th to add your creation!

I've used this beautiful cardinal digi image from yet another digi store ... Delicious Doodles.   Here are the items used in this creation:
Papers:  Whisper White, Real Red, DCWV dp
Ink: Versafine Black, Old Olive
Accessories:  Nestabilities Labels 14, sponge applicator, SU Photo Corner punch, Prismacolor Markers, Martha Stewart icicle border punch
 I'm doing a bit of 'multi-tasking' with my DT creations lately ... trying to get my holiday cards DONE while satisfying DT commitments ... it's working out great so far!  LOL!!  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hubby has another 'scope' to go through at the hospital this afternoon ... please pray the results are GOOD ... still hanging in limbo as to whether there are cancer cells or NOT ... hopefully this time we'll get a better feel for what's ahead!
