Sister Act Card Challenge is going to be an Anything Goes- all the time, challenge blog. It is the brain child of two sister-in-laws, Jenn and Trish...hence the name, Sister Act.
They have a design team call out. It started today, March 1 and runs until March 22, 2013. If you are on the lookout for a design team, you can read all about it here. I am submitting my top three cards to Sister Act to be viewed and considered for one of these design team openings.
This is the first time I have ever applied for a design team opening. I am retired now, with the time available to make this type of commitment. I like to be organized, so the deadlines shouldn't be a problem. I am also a bit of a "Chatty Cathy" so the commenting duties that come with a challenge blog would be fun!
I think my blog reflects my love of paper crafts and combines it with a pinch of frugalness. I often share ideas for saving a bit of money by using off cuts from dies, using Upcycled items and shopping for bargains. These type of posts are quite popular with my followers.
Choosing three cards was so difficult. I don't think I have a standard "look". I like to make various styles of cards, so I have tried to pick three that reflect this.

The second is this golf themed birthday card. The image was coloured with copics, fussy cut and popped forward for a little dimension. The edges of the card stock were inked and distressed to give a masculine feel. The sun was judiciously pruned to fit on my card. I was quite proud I managed to get it on the card as this die had been in my stash bin for years.You can see the original post here.
The third is a elegant looking card. It was chosen to illustrate that I do not always include a stamped or digital image on my cards. I layered various Memory Box dies onto some shimmery card stock. The organza ribbon was threaded through a rhinestone belt buckle and layered over a Memory Box flourish buckle. You can see my original post here.
Hopefully I have chosen wisely and they will feel I could make a good fit on their design team!
