Tracey is known as cuccicoo1002 on SCS
Deadline to vote is 16 Oct 09 at noon CST!!

Feel free to pass this along to everyone you know and/or post on your own blogs!!  LOL  We will announce her intentions with the Scrapbox over at the JUGS blog if she wins!!

Okay...onto my card.  Wow...well, I'm only a few days late in posting this card!  My intention was to do it on Monday, but I focused on commenting on our JUGS entries instead (we have way more than we expected which is AWESOME) :] Then Tuesday, may daughter had a Powder Puff football game that I attended (and froze my butt off at!).  So, it's now Wednesday and long overdue...as are my comments on the rest of the JUGS design team's cards!

I needed two more thank you cards to finish the batch I set out to make a while ago.  So, one more now that this one is done!  I used the Color Throwdown challenge (CTD63) for my color palette:


...and Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge (MTSC42) for my layout:


Which brings me to my card:


Clean and simple, but I love how it turned out!  You should see what I was working on for the CTD challenge before I finally tossed it aside and went with this.  It was ridiculous!!  LOL  I was trying way to hard to make a certain image fit the colors and it just wouldn't come together.  After multiple attempts I knew I was trying too hard.  So, I cleared my head and started over.  30 minutes later my card was done and I was pleased with it!  Funny how that happens sometimes, isn't it?

**Update 10.15.09: I meant to post that this card also qualifies for the Crazy 4 Challenges...uhh, challenge (C4C6), to create a card with a thankful theme!

So, that's it for today.  Please remember to vote for Tracey!!  Thank you so much!
