HIMCR #46 - Do Over!

Happy Saturday!!  The weeks just keep passing by.  Which is good and bad.  I'm ready to begin a new journey but I still have so much here to do that I'm NOT READY!!!  

I know that there aren't as many posts as usual.  After we get moved and a little settled, things here will pick back up.  I will have challenges each week at the very least!  Thanks soooo much for your continued support! 

The challenge this week, the 3rd week of the month, is Mix it Up SATURDAY: Do Over!  This can be ANY project from your past that you REALLY liked and want to do again or DIDN'T like so much and want to make it better.

You have until Friday, May 25th to link up your creation to get entered into the monthly drawing this week.  When uploading to online galleries please use code HIMCR46.

I decided to redo my very first card that I ever uploaded to SplitcoastStampers.  Yes, for some weird reason I still had it. 

Here's what I came up with:

Frames were cut from Elegant Edges are 4.5" and 2.5". 

Card Base: SU Baja Breeze 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:   SU Blue Bayou 4 1/8" X 5 3/8", Cameo Coral 4" X 5 1/4"
Other Cardstock / Paper:   White
Ink:  Blue Bayou, Baja Breeze
Stamps:   Polka Dots & Paisley
Accessories:  Cuttlebug & Swiss Dots embossing folder, Cricut & Elegant Edges, craft ribbon,  brads from Oriental Trading Co.

Now inspiration from the
Hiding in My Craft Room Design Team

You can see the HIMCR schedule of challenges and guidelines HERE!  Please be sure and follow the few easy guidelines so your creation will get entered into the monthly giveaway!!!

Just a few guidelines: 
1.  The current weekly challenge linky will be up until Friday night at midnight MST.  Be sure and link your creation back to the actual post and not just your blog home page.
2.  When posting your creation on your blog or online gallery please link it back to this challenge.  This helps me to spread the word and the FUN!
3.  Please create something new for the current challenge and NOT use something you've made previously.  However, you can combine a HIMCR challenge with other challenges. It is always fun to complete more than one challenge at a time!
4.  The winner of the monthly giveaway will be posted the 8th of the following month!
5. Have FUN!!
6. Let me know if I forgot something!

Thanks so much for visiting me while I am
Hiding in My Craft Room!

  3. Your cards and those of your team are beautiful. Thanks for all of the inspiration. Thanks again for the neat cartridge (I got it in the mail Friday). You are so generous with your giveaways and it is greatly appreciated. Have a safe move. Take care.

  4. Cute cards! I do so love that color combo :)

  5. I want to thank you for the great prize! It is always so much fun to get goodies in the mail. Right now I am in the midst of a serious reorganiztion/cleaning project so my crafting time is limited - but i will try to enter more challenges and also make good use of this prize. Thank you so much.

  6. Some very interesting designs.
    Having read your 'About Me' all I can say is where do you find the time especially with an 18mth old. Great stuff though
