90-Minute Scramble

Happy Weekend!

There was a 90-minute scramble over on the Hero Arts Flickr sight today, hosted by sweet Hannah. She wanted us to either use the Woodgrain stamp, or distressing on our cards. I don't own the woodgrain, so I used lots of distress inks to shade the background around the rose image.



It was a fun challenge and Hannah did a great job hosting! You can see all the cards that were made here. I'm always so impressed by the talent and creativity during these challenges! If you've never played in one, you should give it a try. . .so fun! Here's the schedule which shows the dates for future scrambles.

I just saw our weather report for the rest of the weekend. They're predicting a foot of snow for Sunday into Monday. Not fun after a week of close to 50 degree weather. Bummer!!

Hope everyone is having a fun weekend! Thanks for stopping by! :)

The rose image seems to glow Barb! Beautiful card! We went from nearly 60 degrees to 19 degrees and gusting winds within 24 hours so I feel your pain :(

Barb, this card is amazing! Your distressing is so stunning with the roses! I wasn't able to participate in the scramble because we were out of town for my hubby's bday. I'm hoping I can "play" in the next one.
