Wow! Here it is November already and the last couple of months have gone have just gone poof! October 17th was my one year blogaversary. And I missed it! Yes, I've been blogging for a whole year. So I thought that even though I'm a bit late, I'd offer some Melody Mints. But I'm going to make you work (or play) for them. If you've been reading my blog, you know that my favorite color is blue and I love butterflies. So in honor of my blogaversary, I want you to create a new card that incorporates a lot of blue and has at least one butterfly. Upload your card to your blog or an online gallery and post a link in the comments of this post. One entry per person please, and you have until 5:00 p.m. Central Standard Time on Saturday, November 8, 2008 to post your link. That gives you one week to get creative. I will randomly select a winner from all the entries and post the winner sometime on Sunday the 9th.

The card I did for the inspiration challenge on splitcoast today certainly fits the criteria. I used both large stamps from Inspired by Nature, stamped in Pacific Point. The background was made by dragging my ink pads across the card stock. A very simple card.

stamps: inspired by nature
ink: pacific point, cool caribbean, bashful blue, mellow moss
paper: cool caribbean, night of navy, whisper white
other: piercing tool, brads, navy grosgrain ribbon, butterfly punch (Martha Stewart)

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderfilled day.

Mary, who doesn't have a blog, also emailed her card to me. I will draw the winner sometime later today and see if I can figure out how to post all the cards for you to see here on my blog.
