A few more challenges...why am I awake? haha

Hi friends... Okay so it is 11 pm over her in New York... I guess its not that late but when your a training athlete sleep seems to be a priceless commodity. However, this fine night I find myself WIDE EYED ... so I decided to blog some cards I made for a few challenges.... Lately I have been down about the way I capture my cards...they never come out good =( But I discovered a go to spot (my bathroom) hahaha...Now I know know I get it your probably thinking "ewe artificial lighting" but somehow it works ! I have no clue how or why but I am finally getting semi decent lighting for my pics... Oh and I am sure they would be a lot better if they weren't snapped using my phone but it is what it is.. I am broke and cant afford a camera so the phone it is =) .

So today is 1/21 and Im sneaking this card in to my original post... its for 2 CHallenges the CAS*Ology (Contrast) and the Case Study   Hope you like it ... I love the vibrant colors its tons of fun... I think I'M keeping it to give to me cousin on her 15th birthday, its right up her ally of fun and crazy!

Okay so the first card that I made was for the Case Study 174 challenge...lately I find that my card style has changed and I really enjoy creating smaller more contemporary cards I guess you could say this Hello card would fit into that category, its kind of edgy and girly I really am pleased with how it came out especially since I was able to use my pretty new stamps which was part of the fun over at a blog named hero... they are doing a random raffle to Simon says stamp just for playing with new Christmas goodies... as sad as this is ... my new item was the black paper hahaha I was low.. and funds are tight so I had to use my Newest stamp set (2 months old) and my new black paper =) =) =)

My second card was creating using the Unico studio card challengeI used their lovely template to create a cool Ombre butterfly card... I had added glitter to the butterflies but it didn't stick =( ... but its still pretty.

Okay well I hope you have enjoyed my little "almost midnight" blog post and I would love to hear from you guys...
