*Three Reasons*

I love it when I can accomplish lots with one act....  like making one card and having it fulfill three different challenges!

That's what I did with the card I am sharing with you today....  I made it for two reasons and then had a third drop into my lap this morning.

I made the card yesterday following the current MojoMonday sketch and also as a card to share with a YahooGroup I am on called CreativeCuttleBuggers to celebrate the first anniversary of the group.  And then this morning I saw the Everything Old is New Again Challenge on Allison's Blog (see the sidebar) and realized this card fit for that challenge too!  I have used other stamps in this set from PaperTreyInk, but not this one!  Whew!
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  PaperTreyInk White; Stampin' Up! Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze
*Patterend Paper:  Basic Grey
*Images:  PaperTreyInk Mega Mixed Messages
*Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
*Tools:  Big Shot; D'vine Swirl and Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folders; Nestabilities; Spellbinders Fancy Tags
*Embellishments:  Stampin' Up! grosgrain ribbon
*Challenges:  Mojo131; EONAC10

I really like this card... am very pleased with how it turned out.  I hope you like it too!

I am looking forward to some of the CalGals coming over tonight... Shannon and Dianne aren't able to make it, but Merlie, Tracy and Allison will be here to play for a few hours.  I sure hope I manage to get some creative stuff done!

I am also hoping to be a little creative this afternoon....  gotta tidy up the craft space first!
