Bloggers Challenge and the Compendium of Curiosities # 30

This week I have teamed up my BC & CCC together along with some SmARTworks stamps I recently received.  Blogger Challenge is red, white and black this week, and the CCC is Altered Metal with Paint.  The new issue of the TJNL is out, and curled corners is a cute, fast little tech to add to your cards.

You are welcome to play along with our Blogger Challenge, just be sure and link your card from here.  I'm also playing in the Simon Says Stamp and Show some Love Challenge.   hugz....

OH Gerrie! This is beautiful. And, I love the sentiment. I saw the curled corners in the newsletter, too. There were a bunch of great ideas in there.

I love the colors in this...and I really like your layout, too.

Gerrie, you have officially warmed my heart on a very cold, windy night. What a lovely, gentle work of art. The altered metal is such a cool background, and really, is there a better color combo than black, white and red?! Nope. That stamp and the sentiment are fantastic!

Terrific job on this--love that sentiment--it's a "slice of heaven." a phrase I use often to capture something that's happening at the momemt and trying to remember forever.

Glad you continue to play along with the BC--see you next time!
Hugs Nola
