Crazy 4 Challenges....

Okay, you probably all think I am crazy since our C4C challenges go live on Saturday, but let me explain...
We have had some nasty winter weather for the past week and I have satellite internet. Snow and satellites don't always play nice together. I HATE that. I have had email and could surf the net, but couldn't upload or download anything. My internet just wasn't strong enough.
One of the C4C ladies was kind enough to add my card to the challenge site, but I couldn't put it on my blog until the weather cleared a bit. Very frustrating!!
Lori is our host this month and she challenged us to create a project using polka dots. My card looks like a polka dot fairy threw up on it! rotfl!!!!!
Our sponsor is Innovative Stamp Creations and Betsy was kind enough to send us stamps to use in our creations.


The Eiffel Tower stamp comes from the ATC Elements sheet. It is a beautiful stamp with so much detail!!
I used random polka dotted papers and ribbons along with the Swiss Dots embossing folder for the background.
Be sure to drop by C4C and see what the other designers created this week!

Today, I am off of work and I am attempting to declutter my life. I have to simplify my studio so I have the ability to meet deadlines. I have had such a hard time over the past 2 months and something has to change. I haven't been able to participate in many of the challenges at TPE or C4C because I just haven't had the time and because my area lacks organization. This will be shocking to some because I am slightly OCD. lol But, this room has been horribly neglected and things just seem to pile up to the point where I simply can not work. That is all about to change. I have spent hours in here already and it looks like I have a long way to go. But, hopefully, after I am done reorganizing and decluttering, I will be able to get back to my passion for art!!!
Wish me luck!
Have a creatively wonderful rest of your week and thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi Robin, your card is gorgeous as always, love that colour combo.
Sorry to hear of your blogging probs hun, we in the UK are also suffering severe winter weather and are experiencing satellite probs, roll on the spring lol.
I am so jealous of you having a studio, I craft in my bedroom so have to keep my stash organised and tidy but good luck with your decluttering
hugs Mandy xx

Hi Robbin!! Your card is gorgeous!! I love the pink & black and that ribbon is so yummy!! Good Luck with the organizing!! I did a bunch too last week. My other goal is to clean up after each project and not let it mount up again so I am working in a 6x6 area...lol
