Pawpaw's 87th Card

I know it's been a looong time since I posted a honest to goodness card well ANYTHING handmade & crafty for that matter.  In my defense, we are in the middle of a crazy DIY kitchen make-over.  Truth be told, I haven't done much crafting in the past year, and the few cards I have made....I forgot to take pictures!

This past weekend I was inspired after a visit to the Pasadena Stamp & Scrap Fest to get my fingers inky once again.

I am REALLY wanting to start participating in some papercrafting challenges....but I seem to have forgotten several important bloggy things (like how to put in a hyper-link).  I plan to read over my notes in between coats of stain (in the kitchen) and my normal day-to-day chores (does laundry EVER end????) and come back to edit this post to show which challenges I have entered.

For right now I will just give a quick list of items used on the card below the picture.....then if I get it all figured out I will come back with more details
