One Card Two Challenges!!

Happy Wednesday!

We had another busy week. Religious Ed, Brownies, cheer practices, game, cheer competition, birthday party, and a visit to Grandma's!

Last week Kaeli, my 9 year old daughter, (yikes I can't believe she is 9 already) cheered at her last football game for the season. This is always a sad time for her. She has to wait until summer to start cheering again. Emilie, my 7 year old, started hip hop classes. Kaeli will start next week. Activities are changing for my girls but it stays the same for me. I still get the "pleasure" of driving them around! I LOVE Wednesdays for two reasons. One because I get to participate in the challenge and two because this is the only day we don't have anything to do. YAYYYYY!!!!

This week I am participating in two challenges. The first is for the Diedrich Dare. Seven year old Jack gave us a map for inspiration. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to use the Matey set from the Greeting Farm again. We are welcoming a new team member, Randi Wall.

I am also submitting my card for Farm Fresh Fridays. The challenge was to make a card without any frills. No ribbons, flowers or lace. Nothing too girlie. Every week I look at the challenge and want to participate. Then I get too intimidated by the amazing talent out there. Well, I decided I'm just going to submit it. It can't hurt, right!?!?! My goal is to make two more cards this week for two other challenges.
