giving gallery idol a go! . one (PC, ATCAS, ABNH)

Morning.  Broke my heart to hear about the tornado victims in Oklahoma.   Cars and horses flying through the air???  Are we responsible for the crazy changes in weather recently???  Even got an email from Mom saying that in MI last night they had crazy storms and then a "totally pink sky" like she's never seen before...

Well, maybe it was the holiday weekend in Germany (the third this month already... can you say lucky?) but something moved me to create cards for this year's Gallery Idol competition over at Paper Crafts.  I'm not expecting anything out of it, but it's kinda like the challenge of all challenges in my book.  And as a wise man once said, it's all about the journey, not the destination.  Get your thinking cap on and give it a go too!

The theme for the Open Auditions is "Birthday Cards for Teens and Kids".  Now that is truly challenging for me.  Introducing "for-a-four-year-old-in-primary-colors":


The mug in the mirror - moi!  Just add a "9" to the "4" and it'd be true.  Playing in the Birthday challenge #13 at Addicted to CAS and the Clean Up Your Act challenge over at A Blog Named Hero.

Thanks for visiting and stay safe.

Paper: CS Bringmann, mirror card

This is so darn cute! Love this idea--primary colors, numbers a 4 year old can read, and that little "mirror"! Great card-love, love, love it! Bev

Hello Maria!

Yep, that storm was crazy.
We had violent rain in Chicago and 45 minutes later it was all over...
WE're all in shock about the poor people in OK

I love your card and how graphic and C&S it is!
Thank You~

Great card - cool idea, with the mirror! - I was in Texas last year in April - we loved it! But be happy that you don't have to worry about tornados in Germany!

This is brilliant Maria.... I can't think of a better idea for a kiddies card than for it to be interactive :0)
