Oh my gosh...my first contest card?!?!

The whole reason I got myself one of these "bloggie" things is the scrapbooking arena...at first, I just liked to watch other crafters on You Tube .. then I wanted to do a You Tube video. Then...I found out how many super cool "blogs" there are about scrapbooking & card making...everyone on YT was talking about the blogs...so off I went to check them out - then...I did this little makeshift blog...
NOW I can't stand it - I was seeing all of these blog hops and contests...so you already know...
I HAD TO PARTICIPATE!

Here is my first entry on a contest.
The title of the card is HAVE TUX WILL TRAVEL.
It is what is called a side step card...its actually 3 levels of card!
(And let me tell you, I had to take 3 Excedrin Extra Strengths while
trying to cut it right!) But I did it! On the first try! Woot Woot -
And I won't even tell you how long it took me to do it
(Okay stop begging...6 hours!)
I did stop to eat. ;)


The contest is being held at
K Andrew's Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky
Getting Cricky
(I promise if you do paper crafts, your gonna love her!)
<BR><BR>
The contest states that you need to create a project that somehow involves...
"Pack Your Bags" ...
I don't know why...but Have Tux Will Travel
came to mind. So here is my entry...
Dear Lord..I hope when I added my link
to Kristals site, I didn't like take out her Internet or electricity?!?!

Now keep your fingers crossed for me.
Not only is this my first contest but its the first time
I have EVER posted my cards or pages on the web!
