Glenda's Amusing Challenge #100

I am so, so, so excited today to be part of a blog hop with an incredible group of creative women today. Glenda Wyatt from "Glenda's Papers, Scissors & Rocks" is hosting her Amusing Challenge #100 and there's blog candy involved so read on....

Glenda's challenge is to use as much or as little red on your card as you like. You can incorporate it by using paper, ink, ribbon, embellishments, etc. The red on my card comes from the fantastic Glimmer Paper that is included in our current Occasions Mini catalogue. It is so easy to work with....and you don't end up with glitter all over yourself, so that's a plus. Unless of course you like that bit of glimmer on your cheeks, hands, clothing, etc. I used the new "Eat Chocolate" set and the chocolate at the top of the label is raised with a dimensional. The sketch for this card comes from Our Creative Corner.

As I mentioned there is blog candy involved in this hop, but you must complete the challenge to be eligible to win the blog candy. If you play along, please leave a comment on Glenda's blog (http://papersscissorsrocks.blogspot.com) and link back to her post from your post. Glenda will have a picture of the blog candy posted on her blog. If you upload to an online gallery, please use the keyword GRAC100.

You have until midnight Pacific Time on January 23rd to play along and you can play along as many times as you like. The winner will be randomly chosen and announced on January 24th."

Here is a list of the wonderfully creative women involved in the hop. Please note that you don't have to go them in any particular order just sit back and enjoy visiting.
