Good Morning Everybody! It is Friday already! Wow! Time is flying!

First Card

Today I want to show you several cards that I think are perfect for Allison’s challenge “Post Your Uggos”! Thank you Allison for this fun challenge!  For this challenge you don’t need to create anything, just find some of the previous (earliest) cards that you think are not as pretty as you wish them to be. For me it was not a difficult task, and here are my “Uggos”! Please, don’t be so scared!

Now to the announcements!

1. Did you hear that Claudia at Pretty Pressings has Fantastic Anniversary Blog Candy. Four lucky people will have a chance to win her prizes!!! How about this!!! Thank you Claudia for this treat and for  your wonderful blog where I always find lots of inspiration!

2. If you already have some Pink Poison Stamps, don’t miss a very unique challenge “Mr. Stamper Challenge” at Marie’s Splendid Stamping blog. Thank you Marie for this great event. Only boys can participate in it! Hope my husband will keep his promise and will make a card!

3. And the last kind of announcement – about a month ago I made a card for Rock The Cover Halloween Style Challenge at You Know You Rock blog challenge. Now it is time to vote for your favorite entry! Don’t think that I am trying to advertise myself… Oh, no! I don’t even think my card is good enough. I voted for my favorite, it wasn’t mine of course. But I think other ladies will appreciate if you will have a look at their cards!

Oh, I almost forgot! Not a long time ago on Jami’s blog I read about a cool project. It is about sending post cards from all over the world. You can read about this here. It is very exciting project I think. I sent two postcards – one from Lake Mills and another with a picture of Omsk, Siberia, Russia (from my favorite place, place where I was born and where my Mom lives. Miss you, Mom…).

I also wanted to ask you if you would be interested in reading of some stories that happened in my life. Sometimes something happens in your life, and at that time you look at this differently than later and understand and learn a lot from it. With me making a big change in my life about 4 years ago, I learned a lot and am still learning. So let me know… I think that our blogs are not only showcasing our cards, it is also a conversation between all of us crafters!

Sorry for the long post! Thank you for sharing your time with me!

Enjoy your day! Happy crafting!

  4. Elena says:

    Thank you, Jami! I will start writing some stories from my life adventures.
    Oh, Nancy! You are not bad! I am just so critical abot myself and not happy with the result sometimes!

  5. Hey Elena! I just had to chime in– Of course we would love to hear more about you. Blogging is like a journal — so fill us in! 🙂 Have a fabulous weekend!

  6. Theresa says:

    These are your uggos? You started out doing great work. What a rock star! I love stories.

  7. Rita says:

    These are really cute uggos, but you can see how much you have grown. I look at my first cards & think wow, I’ve really come a long way & now that I have more supplies I can do so much better than way back when!!!

    I would love to hear your stories, we not only like to see everyones creations but we also like to hear more about their lives, I enjoy talking about my daily life when things happen to me & sharing that with my readers. I think it makes for a friendly community & lets us ramble!

  8. Hi Elena, love your cards, you go girl.

  9. Maria Matter says:

    Elena, these can’t be your uggos…I really like the heart one!! I would love to hear your stories, I think it’s wonderful that blogging allows us to share our lives with one another!! Take care!
    Blessings, Maria

  10. Allison says:

    If these are bad, than I don’t wanna be good! Yeesh! You have layers, embellies, a design…mine don’t have any of these!

  11. Lisa says:

    Леночка!!! Это что-то потрясающее!!! С сердечком просто наповал сразила!!!!!!!!

  14. Ida says:

    Elena, Your cards are not (Ugho) at all. The Heart Card is pretty cool if you ask me. – Also I would love to hear about your life. Blogging is a “personal” thing and you should feel free to post whatever you want.
