2 challenges: Authentique and Flashback Friday

Hello, friends:}


I have a couple of creations to share with you today! I have been neglecting many challenges because I've been so busy with Weekend Worship {update below} and DT projects....but I managed to squeeze in some time for two challenges yesterday!! First up, I found my very first banner creation for the Flashback Friday challenge. I made this on August 13, 2010--not long ago! I really didn't like banners on my cards {when banners were the "in" thing}....but then I tried it, and I LOVED it! You can read more about this card HERE. I made this banner a couple of days later! LOL! 
Next, I found some time to play along with Authentique's sketch challenge. I was trying to think outside the box...so I made this diagonal strip into a tie. The three Xs--I thought I would spread them out and I made a tie clip with the hammer image from Paper Smooches My Guy stamp set. I also added a shirt pocket {that's--1. tie clip, 2. hammer, and 3. shirt pocket--ok ok!! I know that is stretching it BIG time--and I know I forgot the scalloped piece! OY! Next time I really need to follow the directions. LOL!}. I love how this turned out! I also love these papers from Authentique {Free Bird-Warmth}. LOVE!
And last but not least....an update on Weekend Worship. All I can say is WOWOWOW! I had a great time--Trav did too! We are so thankful for all of your prayers! God was moving, and I def. think He was glorified and praised {which was our goal}!!! I have NO pictures of the actual night/concert...I'm sorry! I will upload those ASAP!!! However, I do have the shoes I wore! LOVE them!! 
 Horrible pics taken with an iPhone--trust me...these shoes are AMAZING! Blue Suede!! LOVE:)
THANKS so much for stopping by! I hope that you have a blessed Thanksgiving--filled with lots of love, family, friends, and turkey!!! Be blessed:} 

ps...if you are looking for something crafty to do over the holiday weekend...check out these challenges!
