It's a Mystery!! No, it really is ......

Hi everyone!
I'm seeing that apparently I like to shake things up a bit. 
 Like hide things from myself so I can spend all day looking for
 whatever I just had in my hand .... or mail a package in a SASE to myself instead of where it's supposed to really go ... or forget to take a picture of a card - like for this swap! :)  It's like a one person party!  
Just for fun, I should head to the kitchen and mix up all the forks with the spoons and call it a night - right?! :)

Hee hee!  
Indeed it is a Mstery - a mystery swap that is!
In my case, it's a double mystery ...
 darling Kate was our hostess this round and sent us a mystery image to create cards with.  The image is a surprise until all recipients have it and post on the chosen date - today!
Thank you, Kate, for this super cute Dinosaur image - 
I had not seen him before and it's adorable!
Sadly, I mailed my cards to Kate twice - and BOTH times
forgot to take a picture of my card so I had to recreate it from memory.

And if you see the above paragraph, my memory is not a very good one ;)
But, I did find tiny scraps of paper in my dsp basket and
had an idea that it was some of these papers in the mat stack.
And the colors/button ... I think!
The inside is just one I added with leftover paper.


And that's about it for me!
Thank you, Kate, for a fun image to work with
and we'll see you all next mystery round :)

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

  4. So, Kelly - how is the fork/spoon mixup going? LOL! You are such fun!!!!

    And speaking of fun........ your card is fun, too! Love the papers. WOW! and the way you tilted he image. And of course the Kelly trademark - buttons!

    Cute! Cute! CUTE!!!

  5. Love this bright green little dino!! The papers you used are so YOU!! LOL Bright, sunny, cheerful and bring a smile. Yep, that's you to a "T".

    Adorable card!

  6. Oh, goodness! This made me chuckle, Kelly! I've suffered a few times myself from the 'just had it in my hand' issue.
    This card is so cute! Personally, I'm thinking it's a good thing you had to make another. Someone, somewhere is going to get a big blessing from this 'second time around' version.
    PS: My Little Guy was sitting on my lap and saw 'Riley' in your side bar. He's really into moose right now, so reading your post today brought a smile to more than one face.
    Hugs & Blessings!

  7. too cute! I love the bright colors and your dsp. Great recreation of your card.....I could never remember myself! ha ha! :)

  17. Kelly, what a fun card ! I totally like the matching designpaper and the bright and fun colors.

  18. Kelly I totally can relate to one of those days. I am always losing things I had in my hands only moments ago and then have to ask hubby to come and look for it as I am driving myself insane looking for it......lol....I think I am inheriting my mother Alzheimer's only at a much earlier age. Your card with the cute little dino is fabulous, I love the fun background and bright colors it would be a perfect birthday card for a boy. xx

  19. This is so super cute!!! I totally forget to take pics of things I made, like the jars I decorated for Xmas for the teachers, lol. So I can relate to that. I love the dp and the cute image you used. Perfect.

  20. LOL! I know the feeling so well. Usually I walk into a room and totally forget what I am doing there. No matter what the original card looked like, this one is totally cute!

  21. Your design is so bright and cheerful Kelly - perfect for January!
    Sometimes I think we are just too busy!

  22. I've been having serious issues with commenting in pop up windows on Blogger! I hope this finally makes it through!

    I love the bright colors and fun papers you have used to create this great design, Kelly!! Sensational work!

  23. Loving how you always have just the right DP for the cards you make! Loving this colorful paper and your card is fantastic! Oh boy- I am missing my memory as well!

  24. Sounds like a fun challenge group! And your card is so sweet. I can see this going to a little one on his birthday.

  25. LOL! Oh, it's so nice to read a post from a kindred spirit! Things have been so busy here that I forget that I forgot something!
    I'm trying to get caught up on visiting and didn't leave a message on each post, but I absolutely love all of the fun, cheeky cards you are making right now!
    Hope you are feeling much better too!
