Half the Year is over!!

Yes, it is July 1 and half of 2009 is gone! Has it been a productive one for you so far? I think it has been for me. Have you learned anything new? I know I have - and if you have as well, then it has been a good year - regardless of the end result, right? I know one of the things I have done this year is make lots more cards - thanks to the 365 card blog. Today is Day 123 and the challenge for today is an awesome one. It is another 'white space' challenge. The challenge was to leave the white space blank - nothing in that space at all - which of course limited the area in which to create. You REALLY need to go check out Kristie's card on the blog. It is an awesome Patriotic Card. I had considered card-lifting it, however, I don't have any star stamps! I might just have to go get some though and do a similar card for this Weekends' 'Oh Say Can You See Blog Hop on SNR Card Universe'. However, since I did NOT lift it, I decided to make a Fall card instead. I know - it is Full On Summer, but I can dream, right? I love Fall - I think I mentioned that in my post yesterday, so I got out my old SU set 'Festive Fall' and created my card. It is difficult to see, but I did use my CB on the white space (I don't know if that is 'cheating' or not!) I used Handsome Hunter, and three of the new In Colors from SU - Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, and Crushed Curry for the leaves and little acorn. I layered it all on a past In Color - True Thyme - the Soft Suede is SO close in color to this retired color. I used a sentiment from Sweet Impressions since the sentiment that came with this set is too large for the space I was trying to stay within.
In addition to my card this morning, I worked on creating my two-page digital LO for week 4 of the 92 days of summer challenge. I still have a little to do on that one before I feel that it is 'done', but it is close.
Thanks for visiting in the spa today - I hope you have a wonderful sunny day!

Great card Paula and I agree Kristie's card is well worth card lifting for future use.
