What a Week!

The last couple of times I tried to sign in Blogger there were problems... I hate technology when it does not work. For me, computers and everything related should always work and never have problems or be slow... It makes me really furious!

Anyway, my birthday party decorations are almost done! I'm preparing them little by little because I don't have enough space to glitter 45 tags all at once and let them dry so I do them in groups. Everything has some glitter (of course...) and everything needs to rest for a while before being touched or packed.

While waiting for some bigger pieces to dry, this afternoon I made a card for two of my favorite challenges: I used the image given by one of them and the sketch given by another... Perfect!

But let's start from the beginning.
This is the card:
The digi was given by Hambo as participants in last week challenge and the layout to follow was this one from Sweet Sketch Wednesday:

This card will be entered in the following Challenges:
Hambo Hoedown Challenge # 15: in addition to the image, the request was to use bright colors and paper piecing. I paper pieced the basket (is it the correct word?) and colored the digi with my watercolor pencils. The background paper from an old Sizzix stash is maybe not too bright but I used brighter and bolder colors in the other elements of the card. I loved the idea of lightness and movement the bubbles give to the card!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge # 101: they gave us the lovely sketch.

Karen Doodles Challenge: they asks for Bold and Bright colors.

I adore this little girl on flying in her baloon! A really great image, isn't it?
