Throwback Thursday Challenge & My Design Team!

Happy St. Patty's Day everyone! This is a bittersweet day for us because, we are on pins & needles & have to wait ONE MORE day to hear my hubby's results! Someone asked me how could I have the strength to be making cards at a time like this? Well, to be honest w/you, this is the only thing that is really keeping me going! During the day, I am distracted by the boys & my hubby, but when they go to sleep, that's when I constantly start thinking about everything all over again:( So crafting seriously is my Therapy at the moment!
 As soon as everyone wakes up, I am going to shop for my cornbeef & cabbage and some mint chip ice cream! I always make us milkshakes w/that every year for St. Patty's day! (My Favorite!)

Okay, welcome to another throwback Thursday challenge w/my FABULOUS design team! Here are the details for this challenge:
*** Link your project up to Mr. Linky, then leave a comment!

*** Deadline for this challenge will be on Wed, March 30th!
***Use ANY OLDER CARTRIDGE OF YOUR CHOICE for this challenge & make sure your project has the color GREEN in it***
***Make a project of YOUR choice!
*** ONE project per person please!

Sorry, I'm still not ready to do a video yet. But I did make a card for this challenge!
Here is my card, I used Create a Critter for the worm & apple shaped card. I also used 3 Birds on Parade for the little cute cloud! That ADORABLE face on my worm is from Peachy Keen's Large "Critter Faces" set! Did I forget about that Super Perfect Teacher stamp?? Yep, that is from my stamp set called "My Teacher Rocks"! I colored it in to make it look like it's on a post-it note & I also used red stickles for that tiny cute apple!;) Oh, I also embossed the apple using the "Book Print" Impression Plate from Papertrey Ink!
Here is Miss Glora's super cute card also using "My Teacher Rocks" stamp set!
Here is Miss Nikki's Manly Man card using "You're My Best Buddy" stamp set!
Here is Miss Abby's adorable card also using "You're My Best Buddy" stamp set!
Here is Miss Vickie's adorable card & she used "So Grateful For You" stamp set!

Now onto the LUCKY winner of our last Throwback Challenge....... Random.org  chose.......#62
CONGRATS Miss Cassandra!!!! You can see her CUTE card HERE! Cassandra is the winner of a stamp set of her choice from my stamp line!!!;) So Miss Cassandra, go ahead & email me & let me know which stamp set YOU would like & I would also need your address!

  13. Thank you for sharing that sweet little card! It's absolutely essential to do something we love as therapy. Mom's wear alot of hats and at the end of the day we need to decompress! Crafting is a wonderful way to keep our hands and minds busy, and it usually involves making something for someone else which is also wonderul. Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day and the milkshakes, yum!
