Mix It Up…. Lisa Style….

5 Feb

We have a new challenge on SplitCoast called Mix It Up and I play along as well as host in this challenge.  This week it was Donna’s turn to host  and I made my previous card to meet the challenge rules but it was obvious I hadn’t had enough coffee this morning because I dared to use three colors!!! *SHOCK*  I know I know… how could I do this when Donna said only two colors are to be used! *sigh* well I erred when I made my card and got totally body slammed when I posted and got disqualified! LOL!!!  Don’t you just love it when that happens???  Especially when you have no idea that you made the error until everyone rushes in all excited to let you know!  I FELT LIKE I WAS ON THE GONG SHOW! LOL!!!  Opps… Did I just date myself there? LOL!!!!

Check this out…. How cute is that????? *grin*

Anyway…. It was SUCH a fun morning for me this morning…. I laughed until I was weak with all the fun banter on our little Mix It Up Challenge thread…. we usually poke fun at each other every chance we get… makes for some good light hearted fun!!! I Love It!  Okay… I’ll shut up now and show you some more of what I made last night at Crop Night at The Cutting Garden!!!!  Check out their site here:  http://www.thecuttinggarden.ca/  I love that store more every time I go in!   And here’s the biggest shock of all!!!!  I think they want me to teach a class for them!!! How Fun Is That!?!?!?!?  Here’s another peek…. Okay… don’t act so shocked…. Did you NOT expect me to figure out how to put a big double bow some where on this card??? 😉 LOL! So last night at crop night it was a packed house!  There were so many amazing crafty people there doing the most incredible projects!  I was literally in heaven walking around just soaking up all the crafty mojo goodness that was going on in the room!  I loved it so much I signed up for the next two crop nights!  This is one of the cards I made when I wasn’t rubber necking, checking out what everyone else was doing.  It was so fun!… there were scrap bookers there… they were making the post beautiful Scrapbook layouts… I have to say, it’s very tempting for me to have a go at scrap booking now that I have seen how fun it can be!

Okay… So I am posting this in Donna’s Mix It Up Challenge just to drive her crazy!  *I’m an instigator, that’s what I do*  LOL!!!

She asked for 1 layer… I’m giving her 6

She asked for 2 colors… I’m giving her 9

The way I see it…. When you break the rules you might as well GO BIG OR STAY HOME!   This is how I roll 😉  LOL!!

Here’s my entry…

I was so long winded I forgot to tell you that This stamp is by Darcie’s – JCS140,  it’s just the cutest stamp set  and I immediately fell in love with it, which is a surprise for me because this is totally not my style of card but hmmmm…. it seems it is possible for me to branch out a bit!  😀

Thanks so much Kim & Mel for such a fun evening!! *hugs*

Lisa 🙂

    Sound like you had a blast last night. I always love to look and see what other people are doing. I don’t do well really at cops, unless I have something planned quite a ways in advance. I’m sure not as creative as most people..wish I was, but oh well, maybe someday! Also just wanted to let you know that I love this card as well!
    Have a great evening!

      Good plan Joann! I think I heard Kim mention she might have to do crop night twice a month!! I must ask her if she is really thinking about this! 🙂
