Hi y'all! How are you all doing? I am as nervous as can be. LOL. As much as I enjoy the whole process of making cards and all for the Gallery Idol, I am very nervous about the whole thing. This is my first time experiencing anything like this.

I mean, I still have to pinch myself that I am going through this whole experience along with some awesome card makers that I've admired and actually have followed for awhile. So, to be competing with them is very, very nerve wrecking for me. I have to submit my card by tomorrow. I hope I can go to the next round, but if I don't, I sure will treasure this whole experience. :)

I am so nervous, I've been munching like crazy. Yes, when I am nervous, I snack a lot. LOL. I am sure some of the sugar probably don't help.

To take my mind of things, I decided to play on some challenges. I made this cheerful, bright card for The Pink Elephant challenge 69, Paper Play challenge, and Taylored Expression Sketch Challenge 116.

I simply love this Hero Arts Poppy stamp. And, did you see the background behind the poppy? I found this graph stamp from Stampabilities and totally love playing with it. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. Here's up-close view of the flowers. It has plenty of yummy sparkles. :)


Okay peeps, that's it for tonight's post. Hope you all have a great evening. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Hugs, Vera.
