It's a CRAZY life...


...and I am CRAZY excited to tell you that TODAY IS THE DAY!!!

The new CRAZY4CHALLENGES blog is NOW OPEN!

We have all been WAITING for the big day and it's finally here! Woo hoo!

Now, in addition to this CRAZY COOL SKETCH that we have for you this week, designed by our very own Cindy Haffner, we also have some exciting news about PRIZES!

That's right, Stamping Bella is our sponsor for this challenge so be sure to head on over to the CRAZY4Challenges (or, C4C as we call it ;) and CHECK IT OUT!

Here's my take on this week's sketch:

My sweet friend Mercy is a bit under the weather and oh, yeah, is now a VERVE DIVA, officially! OMGOSH I was freaking when she broke the news! I am SO thrilled for her, so I figured what better stamp set to use to make her a get well card than the new "Cup of Life" set from Verve stamps?!
I created a little pocket card based on the sketch and attached a bag of tea to the back of the pull-out tab of the card.
In addition, the card does open up the regular way as well so there is plenty of room to write inside and not just on the little pull-out part. What do you guys think? I have had that Crate Paper sitting on my desk forever so I was happy to finally be able to use it!
Well, have a WONDERFUL Labor Day weekend and don't forget to stop by the other AMAZING "Crazies", as I refer to them, LOL. They are:
We really hope you can play along this week! Be sure to stop by the C4C blog to upload your creation to the right place so we can all see them and you can be entered to win! If you upload to SCS, PCP, etc. use keyword C4C1.

I'll see you over on the Crazy4Challenges blog, everyone! Hugs!
