Life is a test...

Yup, I've been missing!  My new job coming up has me preparing to be out of town for a week and arranging for family to come stay at my house with my son, etc., etc., etc. Seriously, lots to do!

So this card I'm posting is actually fitting for my frame of mind...


I re-posted this card for Amy's Flashback Friday Challenge:  
'your first paper pieced card'.  
I 'paper-pieced' the television screen and this card is the furthest back that I found with paper-piecing
...this card was posted at SCS HERE on November 1, 2007! 

It was for a Chalk it Up Challenge: I used the technique "crinkled chalk", by using cellophane wrap and crinkling it, then inking it with the chalk to get that background.
