Last week, there were FIVE awesome entries in the Wacky Wednesday Challenge, Use Real Wood.

Because it is impossible to pick my favorite, I used

The winning entry was submitted by Brenda Burfreind.
Here is Brenda's awesome project:

Now, it's time for a new "Wacky" Challenge!

This one is for all the Jerry McGuire Movie fans!

The challenge this week is

Here is the one I made:

It's a Sliding Card.
When you pull the sides, it slides open to reveal it's secret compartment!

Here's the inside:
Fun, right?
Can't wait to see all your Wacky creations!!!

C'mon over to the Latte Lounge and play with us!!

While making this card, I ended up using a template I created in Inkscape and cut with MTC on my Cricut.
I am going to fine-tune the template and will offer it here with my free SVG files, if anyone is interested!

I suppose this is a good time to mention that I have received a blog award from Tracy at Jedi Scrapbooking:

YAY!! I'll be getting my $5 Gift Certificate!!
You can BET I'll be using it toward the new Animals with Attitude!
Have you seen Gretta Gobble !!?!!


Three things that make me different:
  1. I don't create for YOUR pleasure, I create for MINE! I have mentioned it before, but sometimes, we get so wrapped up in trying to make things that other people will like and approve of, that we forget that creation is a form or artistic expression. I make what I like and I hope that people will like what they see, but if they don't, that's OK with me too!
  2. I don't have a "Craft Room"!! {gasp!!} nope, we have a large Family room and along one wall, DH and I have our computers and desks set up side-by-side. I have a shelving system next to my desk where I put all my "craft stuff" and when I'm working on a big project, I open up a folding table and use that! The other part of the room is taken up by my piano, his guitars (and all his gear-amps, pedals, switches, cords, etc- AUCK- what a mess HIS space is!!) and a wall unit book-shelf/entertainment center where we have a TV, PS2, Wii and MILLIONS of books, movies and music CD's... it's an all-purpose room and we spend a lot of time in one room together doing different things! (-:
  3. I own 4 pairs of shoes! Can you BELIEVE it??? Over the past several years, I have been a SAHM (stay-at-home-mom) and for the most part, between working with hubby and playing with kids, there has not been a lot of time for "dressing up". I spend most of my days in sweats or comfy clothes! Mu shoes include sneakers, boots, sandals, and "dressy" black heels. Oh yeah, and flip-flops! (-:
So, who are my favorite people to nominate for this award?
It's a tough choice!
Whoever I pick will be awarded the $5 Digis with Attitude! Certificate! (as long as they follow the rules)

Here goes:
My nominees for the "Attitude Award" are:
  1. Cely, at Creating in Carolina (this chick uses a SLEDGE HAMMER for crafting!!)
  2. Tammy, at OBX Stamping (she is raising a 19-month old hand full!)
  3. Stef, the one and ONLY Glitterbabe (one of the most entertaining blogs, definitely a first-read)
  4. Jen at JLJ Designs (she has one of the nicest "Attitudes" I know and she's one talented artist!!)
  5. Lorie, at Live-Love-Laugh-Create (she has a real "Can-do" attitude and her blog is full of motivation)
Congratulations, ladies!!! Wear your new badge with pride!!
