Finally!

I FINALLY got around to updating my blog! Not to make excuses but I was having computer problems, yes again, and then we have had days without power so that doesn't help either.
Anyways, there has been soo much going on that I am not going to bore you with the details but I will fill you in on the fact that the swap group I am in, NMBS (No More Bad Swaps), has their our blog now!!! See the link to the right! Thanks to my dear friend, Teresa, who got it all set up and going for us! She is soo good with it too!
So on our blog we offer a different CHALLENGE every Sunday! Whether you are part of our group of not you can post your "challenge creations" on our blog! How fun is that???
Each week, a different member of our group will host the "challenge". So be sure to check it out and I would love to see your creations!!!
This week is our third week. I have been good so far and have done the first two weeks challenges! My husband is getting ready to go fishing and my son is playing with a neighbor so I just might have time to do the this weeks challenge! Yippee!
Okay so here is the NMBS #1 Challenge card that I did. The hostess was Teresa and the challenge is to use black and white with one accent color. You also had to use a flower stamp and bling! I must say no surprise there, knowing Teresa because she loves flowers and owns ALOT of flower stamps! Ha!
For my card I used the following: (all SU except rhinestone bling)
Stamps: Live your dream
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Regal Rose, DS Flowers for you
Ink : Regal Rose around the edges
Accessories: Regal Rose and Old Olive markers, Regal Rose grosgrain ribbon, Rhinestones, sponge daubers
