Delightful Challenge

** Please scroll down for the MTME Pretty Pattern post **

Hi everyone,

Thanks for coming back.  The Delightful Challenge is up and ready for you to play along.  This week it's an Anything Goes Challenge.  Now you all know how I feel about these.  That unless you really go out on a limb, it's not really a challenge at all.  Just my personal opinion and I walk the talk.

I feel like I really did step out on my card I made to share with you today.  I am featuring Bizzy Bear, Daisy Flower and the ADORABLE digi paper Busy Bee's.

We've all seen criss-cross cards and I really enjoy making them.  I hope this card brings you happy feelings like it does for me.

And here's the inside.  I created the sentiment and I really should've brought it up a bit more, but I guess if I did, the words would show when it's in it's sleeve.

Copics: B00, B000, C5, C7, C8, E17, E30, E33, E34, R11, Y06, Y15, YG00, YG03

Also, I want to tell you that today is the day that begins the monthly challenges at Raisin Boat!  Whoo-hoo!!  I'll be posting my card tomorrow for my Friday Feature - but be sure to head over to the Raisin Boat blog to see some amazing projects from a super uber talented team that I am so blessed to be a part of!

I like that opinion - I think you're right! Not sure that I walk the talk on that, but I think I should from now on. (The other one that gets me is folks who link one card to 30 can't possibly have really made it for all of them??)
Love this bear, and that BEE! Too cute, and the nifty pocket card - I've never made one, if you can believe it.
