Pile it On

I was not fibbing when I said I did not have much time to make cards this week! In my defense I was making 12x12 scrapbook pages! Yes! You heard it here first! I'll be revealing those in a week or so. (wink)

Anyway, I really did want to play in this week's Pile it On Challenge, so I combined with one of the 365 Cards challenges, and the July card sketch challenge from CropStop. So that's THREE challenges in one card. I think that's a record for me. I'm not very good at this pile it on stuff.

I think I did pretty well with the card sketch. I used Fancy Pants paper from the June Apron Strings Designs kit. The sketch was for a tall card, which is always fun! And the Pile it On challenge asked for at least 4 buttons. I have 9 on my card. Can you spot them all?!

I also used 365 Cards challenge for Day 124 - which was to use a digital (or computer generated) element. I typed this quote and printed it onto cardstock.

So there you go! Three in one!

I wish I could say that I'd be doing tons of cards next week, but I don't think I will be able to. I have a lot going on between now and the end of August, and will be pushing it to get all my DT stuff done, let alone EXTRA challenges. I will promises!
