--------------I am EXCITED!!!!!!
I also wanted to let you guys know that I have coerced the leader of my 
Card Club Liz McDaniel to enter a card onto Flikr and start challenges.
She is the reason I am where I am!!!   
She effortlessly ensures that we meet once a month for the last 3+ years, and inspires us to use our supplies!!!
If you remember how daunting and scary that first time was, 
when you entered a challenge ----and you loved having a hello of support, only if you want to, and have a second,  I would appreciate it, 
if you leave her a friendly hello.
I know she is terrified..... she told me so, 
Encourage a fellow CAS person and stop by her flikr page and say HI!

Here is her Flkr:

I get such a good feeling when I have one person make a card!

GIVEAWAY: If  Liz gets at least 10 comments on her Flikr Page, or more, I will draw from all of the commentors, and send them this, and a few other extras...: 

My heart is in the right place, I want her to feel great about starting this FUN
venture that we all love so much!
CARD Challenges!!!!

Gorgeous card and mug, Kim!!! I am sure your co-worker loves it! Great job with the design...and congrats on your giveaway and new challenge!

You are one sweet girl. How awesome are you to encourage your friend?! I left her a comment on her fab card but don't put me in your give-a-way....I'm not doing it for the goodies but to get another crafter to be as addicted to challenges as we are :) LOL.

Your fusion cards are wonderful and how fun to see how you were inspired by your co-workers coffee mug, which by the way, is so pretty!

Irish Cherokee said...

Both are fun cards Kimberly. The first one with the flowers is a dead on bullseye. Love the graphics stamp on the second one. Like the color combination as well.

Katie Ann Brooks said...

LOVE that you changed up the design, fabulous! And the rain paper is one of my faves, just perfect! You are just a wonderful person. :)

Pia S said...

Your card matshces the style and colors of the cup perfectly. I really like your design!

Julia Aston said...

Two beautiful cards Kimberly! Your mug inspired one is so vibrant and the little vines so pretty on the 2nd - I'm sure your friend loves her card made just for her!

Shannon J said...

Gorgeous cards, Kimberly - and I LOVE that you personalized the one!! That just makes it so extra special! AND you are SO sweet to support your friend! I'll buzz over to her flickr right now and share some love!

Deepti said...

Wow Kimberly, love how were inspired by that mug!! love the added dimension on ur cards and I love the way you appreciate ur crafty friends :) you are so adorable :)

Happy Dance said...

Before I tell you just how beautiful your cards are, I have to tell you what a wonderful, kind, and thoughtful friend you are. DH has a blog, but it's all political - no beautiful people like there are among cardmakers. This is such an awesomely encouraging and supportive venue, and you're a great big part of that. You bet, I'll pop over to your friend's page in a quick minute. Now, Your cards are amazing. Love the colors, and those wonderful angles. Love visiting your blog! Bev

Liz McDaniel said...

You totally crack me up Kim! Thanks for sending folks my way to comment :-)

cm said...

So much sweetness to applaud in your post, Kimberly; once again, you are revealing what a warm heart you have! Your card for your co-worker is amazing - and taking inspiration from her coffee mug (how delightful it is!) is so thoughtful and personal! Your second card - lovely; every detail - colours, layout, flowers, stitching - perfectly connected! Now, your shout-out for your friend is beyond charming! I'm heading over right now...Hugs~c

Kimberly, you are about the sweetest person I know! You are so talented and generous and caring and considerate...what a wonderful lady you are! Liz is lucky to have such a supportive friend in the crafting world! I LOVE both of your cards today...that design is one I must try, and the florals are all gorgeous! (I love that mug, too!)
