Karber Challenge #7

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had as wonderful a weekend as I did! I try to make the most of every minute of the weekend because it always manages to go by so quickly. Don't you agree? Well, on Saturday I spent the day with a very good friend to celebrate her birthday. Cami and I spent the day talking, shopping, eating, shopping, talking, laughing, etc. You get the idea. We had a grand time!

On Sunday, we finally got our fur baby! We adopted him from the shelter my son is volunteering at. He's a domestic short haired cat named Maui. He's so cute and I would have shared a picture of him, but he's very camera shy at the moment and is still getting acquainted with us and his new home. I'll definitely post pics when he's ready.

Enough about my weekend. It's time for Karber Challenge #7! This week's challenge: Hobbies and Leisure! Wowza! How perfect is this challenge for all of us crafters?!? I know you all can relate, so please hop on over to the Karber Shoppe, pick up a digi or two and enter this challenge!

My first card is made with "Shopping Stephanie". And what is she doing? Our favorite hobby - shopping!

I love this sentiment!

For my second card I used "Reader Leslie". She loves the TWILIGHT saga as much as I do! She's reading her favorite book of the series, ECLIPSE ...

And this sentiment reflects my feelings when I'm reading ECLIPSE! Heehee!

The reason I made two cards this week, is because I felt my first card wasn't my best work. The flowers were too big for the image I used, and kinda overpowered the image. I am much happier with my second card - it's more balanced than the first. Know what I mean?

Anyway, some great news from KARBER! Karla and Berenice are having a DT call! Click here for all the details, and good luck to you should you decide to apply!

Thanks for reading this long post and hope you all have a great week! Until next time, take care.
