{sharks} week 3

Well, it is week 3 at the Nook's Card Shark contest and I'm still alive.  :)  2 challenges are due tonight and I finally found some time to get them done today.  Tis the season, life is busy!  The first challenge is based on Poker Flush, which is any 5 cards of the same suit.  Our challenge is to use 5 of the same embellies on out card.  I'm not sure why, but I found this challenge somewhat difficult.

Share the Joy
Paper & Pearls: MME, Felt Trees: Hero Arts, Doilies: LYB, Sticker Sentiment: SRM Other: embossing paste, pearl-x

I'm normally not much of a technique gal, but I hauled out my embossing paste and some gold pearl-x and made some shimmery snowflakes.  I used the pearl-x on the edge of the doily "snow" too.

The second challenge is based on the card game, Crazy 8's.  Our challenge is to use 8 elements of our choosing on our card.  I made a simple folk art tree with a funky domino base.
Oh Christmas Tree
Paper: MME, Lace: May Arts, Ric Rak: Bazzill, #2 sticker: SRM, Other: domino, star
There has been mention of  public voting for our cards on the Nook blog.   I will let you know when and if that happens and if you are so inclined, you can take a look and vote for you favorite. 
There are 3 things I'm very excited to mention to you all.  The first 2 are awesome DT calls!  One is for SRM Stickers!  If you are a frequent visitor to my blog you know how much a adore these stickersIf I don't lose my nerve, I will be applying for this team!  :)  The second call is for Tessa's Precocious Paper team.  Her handmade embellishments are beautiful and so is she, both inside and out.  :)  The last thing that has me so excited is that I made $155 at the garage sale my LSS had!  :)  I cant wait till the next one!  I'm going to try to be a little more thoughtful about my scrappy purchases from now on. 
Thanks for stopping by today, I'm hoping happy has found you in some way today!
