Crop Stop Blog Hop Challenges Completed (Edited)

I've been having such a great time hopping along with the girls at Cropstop!  Been trying to get as many challenges done as possible.  Make sure you stop by and check them out!  Lots and lots of eye candy and inspiration!  Thanks to all of you for keeping us inspired and sharing with us!

Here's what I've done.....

For Vicki's Challenge I did this baby card.

For Elisabeth's Challenge, my version of a 1950's card.

For Jessica's ATC "Playing Card" Challenge I created this, my own version of a playing card.

For Dalis' Handmade Flower Challenge, this is the layout I came up with.  The flower is made with ribbon and a button.  This is me and 3 of my girlfriends at a crop weekend!  We had such a great time!

The last challenge I've done is Lisa's Challenge, however, due to "technical difficulties" (well, actually, my own inability to properly read instructions I have elected to change things up a bit.  I wasn't being successful at making her envelope mini, so I went with this and made a note card holder with note cards inside.....way to think out the box,  I hope you like it, as it truly was inspired by Lisa's creations!

Well, I think thats it!  I think I've accomplished everything I've wanted to!  I had a blast doing this blog hop!   Again, don't forget, if your quick, you may still have time to do this blog hop challenge at CropStop! I guarantee you'll love what you see!
