Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge 23

Hi everyone!  As you are reading this I am currently in Minneapolis with 3 of my girl friends for Scrapfest!  Today I have a full day at the Mall of America where Scrapfest is held, doing make and takes and have a Tim Holtz class!  It's going to be so fun!  I don't think I will be able to write about Scrapfest while I am here, I won't have the time!  It's tiring standing in lines and shopping all night you know!!! I want to let you know that I won't be able to comment on your blogs while I am gone, I won't have a chance!  But I will be doing a random giveaway to someone or someones who leave me comments while I am gone!  I don't care if you win a lot and feel like you shouldn't, I am blessed by all the times you do comment!

Today I am here with my card for Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge!  Our sponsor this week is Your Next Stamp!

The challenge this week is SOS:  String, Orange and Scallops!  I actually made this card for tonight!  I am having dinner with a bunch of my Hero Arts Flickr friends and some of the ladies from Hero Arts, Jennifer McGuire and Shari Caroll! Can you feel my excitement?  We are doing a card swap and are to bring 2 cards.  I made this card for that with my friend Kate over crafting too.  Kate and I both realized that this card would work for this challenge!  How awesome is that?  Totally by accident! 

In case you are wondering the string is the antenna!   I embossed the kraft cardstock with my Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder than stamped the raised dots with my friends def background stamp! I colored the butterflies with my prisma and derwent pencils!

I really hope you can play with us this week, you have until Friday September 24th at 11:59pm PST!  For more info please click here.
