Gradient is Radiant Challenge

I had so much fun playing along with Cath's newest Moxie Fab challenge that I had to make two cards! I have to admit that I didn't think I would play along with this challenge. It was kind of intimidating to me for some reason! However.... after seeing several of your awesome cards, I just knew that I had to give it a shot! I had so much fun with it... I want to make more. I don't know if I will have time before the challenge ends but... maybe!?!?

So... I hope you all have a fab Thursday and are looking forward to Finally Friday!! I know I am!!

Carver and I ran some errands today and then we went to see my friend, Kim (who is adorable with her prego belly)!! I love Kim and it is always so nice to be able to spend time with her (and her hubby) and watch our boys play together!! They are so cute!

Our weather has been a little crazy here! When we woke up, it was in the 50's and then by this afternoon is was 80! I was glad that the sun was out for a while. It gave me an opportunity to retake some pics of my cards (already posted) and repost them with hopefully better lighting! I think I need to ask for a light box for Christmas!

Well... Thanks for checking in with me!!

Friday is the final day to participate in the Everything but the Kitchen Sink Challenge ... so hurry up and get your cards in!! We have some awesome cards posted. We are all pumped at the response for this first challenge. Thank you to all of you who have participated and to those of you who wanted to but... just didn't find the time. Maybe next time!?!? :)

Peace and Love!!

Great cards for the gradient challenge, Kelley! I had some ideas, but, alas, no time. Same with the kitchen sink challenge. This thing about going to work everyday is getting annoying! It's really cutting into my crafting and blogging time! Speaking of work -- gotta go. (Love the previous banner card, too...) Have a great day!
