New Year, NEW Challenge!  

Happy New Year!  This year the As You See It Challenge Blog is going strong.  Challenge #68 is up and live!!!  Don't forget to play along with us and link up your project on the AYSI blog.  

Here's the challenge for this week: 

Easy, right?  Well, only if you can tie bows.  ;)  
I STRUGGLED with tying bows on the bakers twine.  I could do it but they looked all crazy like.  Enter sequins.  Stampin' Up! came out with these great sequins that I use all the time.  They are a great filler!  I also used the everyday occasions card kit.  LOVE that you can make a ton of cards with it.  Plus, it's simple and comes with a flyer of ideas.  

Of course, don't forget to link up your project at the AYSI blog!  

Happy Stamping!

Whoot Another Week Another Challenge!  

Can you believe that summer is almost over.  Me either!  Where did it go?!?!  

This week's sketch is a quick one.  I should of times myself because I think I was under 10 min.  It's great for all those "Oh, my I forgot to make a card" moments.  

Simple and quick!  Of course I added my own twist on it by using circles.  

Please make sure to play along with us at

Summer is here in all it's glory.  
The weather has been perfect the last few days in West Michigan.  
Following those thoughts this weeks theme is Summer!

As You See It Challenge 41

It's a new challenge week!  This one is an all play, of course.  

This week choose your newest craft supply and use it!  
I chose the new Blendabilities Markers from new Stampin' Up! catalog.  Love them!  Some of you may of heard of Copic markers.  Blendabilities are the same type of marker as those, BUT they come in Stampin' Up! exclusive colors.  

Sorry, my picture isn't the greatest (having some technical issues around my house) but you can see how the colors on the flower blend together.  Each Blendabilites set comes with three markers; dark, medium, light of the same color.  The set I used was Rich Razzleberry.  

Please play along with us at 

Happy Stamping!

Here is this weeks design.

I figure this is a great card for some of the graduation parties that I have coming up.  

Lovin' this paper that is in the occasions catalog & only around till June 1st!
