Happy Birthday FMC #128

I finally decided to get my SLR camera out to take pics of my cards and not my cell phone.  I was waiting for my daughter to send me back my memory card that she borrowed in November.  I know, I know I could have purchased another one....true, so true.  Now all things are right in our worlds and I have my memory card back.

I don't know if anyone else has anxiety/excitement over all the challenges that are out there.  How do YOU choose which ones?  I like to look for a color challenge, a sketch challenge and a theme challenge for one card.  Just this week, I wrote down the due dates of the challenges I enjoy the most.  Any advice?

As for this card, I was way too impatient to find a color challenge.  I feel you can never go wrong with green :)  Freshly Made Sketches #128 has wonderful clean and simple sketches every week.  This is my go-to challenge every week.  Seize the Birthday Toppings is Stitches.

Thanks for stopping by!    Traci

  3. This is so sweet! I love the green and the "camo" pp for your "YOU". Sensational!!

    I love challenge blogs but often feel totally overwhelmed by which one. This week was my first attempt at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. It was such a sweet simple design I had to dive in! : ).
