Caardvarks 10K Challenge

I did all 10 days of the challenge but didn't win. There we so many great cards, I would hate to have to judge them. I did win as one of the 10 runners up. To be eligible for that , you had to do all 10 challenges. Not sure of what I won yet, there were alot of different prizes. Guess we will have to wait until it shows up in the mail.

The cards I entered to Caardvarks "Ravishing Ribbon" Challenge



This was fun....going thru my ribbon box and finding some old ribbons that I had gotten from my grandmother. "Friend Forever" I used three different ribbons on this card. It has some old ribbon and some new , to make what I think is a lovely card. Here is my second entry, "Priceless". Again I used ribbon I got from my grandmother.

About Me

My photo
Born in Illinois, moved to California when I was nine. Finished high school and some college. Got married and moved to Nebraska with hubby because he joined the Air Force. Then spent some time in Alaska before moving back to California. I lived in Californa until 2004 when my husband decided to move us to Texas. I still have a husband (yes-I still have him even though he moved me to Texas), two daughters, three cats (and two outside cats that adopted us along with two racoons that we feed).
