Don't Forget: Sign In To Be Counted For The Top Follower Prize
Before I say anything else, I want to say that this was a very good month for me.  I won two challenges with two different cards and my third card was featured on "The Outlawz".  So what were the chances that I created three cards and all three end up being a winner.  Wow was all I could say and of course grin foolishly at the computer as I read I was a winner.

So now moving on to other topics.  We are so close to reaching the 300 followers and reaching our goal...just one more crafter has to like my blog and yipee it will be time for some blog candy.  But close isn't go enough so until my goal is reached I will keep on with the challenges and crafting. 

I've been playing with the new Ranger Distress Markers and just enjoying them to no end, even amongst my messes.  After doing my first sucessful card, I thought I was good to go but wouldn't you know that I could not repeat what I did on the first try.  Talk about being frustrated boy was I ever.  Anyway I just kept trying until I finally completed a card that I am not afraid to share with everyone.  It isn't the best card, but its okay for my purpose.

Well although this card I am going to share is one that I was pleased with, that is up until it was time to put it together.  So if you see some imperfections with the paper just know that it got wet while I was misting another project and I didn't see the curling paper until later.

I had fun coloring this card and discovering that I can still use my distress markers successfully (just to much practice time). 

The paper is MME and my coloring media as I already stated was Ranger Distress Markers.

I've got a close-up of my coloring so you can see that I am getting better.  I haven't perfected it yet but I am trying and will continue to try until ....well I don't know when I will stop trying.

Well at any rate here is a close-up of my coloring.  Now remember to leave me a comment and let me know what you think about my coloring...be gentle.

Well although this was a short post I do hope you found some joy in reading it. I hate to leave you but I have to start preparing my next challenge and getting my blog candy together just in case I reach my goal of followers.

I will see all of you later with a new post, a new challenge, new winners and hopefully some blog candy.  Whew, my eyes are getting heavy and my head is playing the yes game with my chair so I really must end here.

Remember "find beauty in all things and then go create your own."

Lesia, this card is gorgeous! I love how the image is divided. My tale of distress marker coloring is sad. I've yet to color anything successfully with them. But I'll keep trying until I make something post worthy :) If it wasn't easy for you, I know it ain't easy!!
