Big changes are happening behind the scenes....a couple of us are leaving AAA Cards. We are just so busy that we can't craft and comment anymore. I'm (Victoria) already resigned and have passed the hat to.......

Well, you'll just have to check into the next game to see the new line-up.




This is my goodbye card dear players.

Wonderful life changes have happened and it's time for me to retire from card making

It's been an absolute pleasure bringing AAA Cards to you all and sharing and playing with 
so many kind, sweet and beautiful people!
Thank you all so much,
Hugs and goodbye, Victoria Lavender

Game #43 Star Scene



Welcome to game #43
STARRY NIGHT


Visit our winners from last week- for Paste & Stencil, next Sunday July 12th.


Did you see some interesting night skies recently? 
Maybe fireworks or a bright 
starry sky away from the city?
This week create a scene with some stars!




We are brief today with this little post. A good number of the design team is 
on vacation or traveling during this game. I've been away from home several days now.
We are running somewhat on auto drive.
Instead on closing for a month, the games will go on, winners will be chosen, 
but DT commentary will be spotty.
Ya know...island time lifestyle.

We love you all and encourage you to create a dreamy starry creation.
Our inspiration for Starry Night comes from design team and original member-
Yea!- Linda!























 We always ask you to step out of your normal 
routine and try something new 
and hot in card making.

#HaveYouSeenL4C..... LOOKING 4 CHALLENGES









Have you had the opportunity to visit with Pirate Cat at 

Looking 4 Challenges is a challenge listing site, meant to give you the occasional giggle as you cruise through the daily challenges by looking at game images.

Watch out! Some challenge blogs don't use an inspiration image.....so I make them up as I go! This is where you may 
get a laugh or two. If you see an asterisk * in the game title- 
I made it up.

L4C is handy, easy to use and the information is usually available earlier in the the day than the full report challenge lists. It's a fast tool to locate a place to play. Like a bulletin. 

Mainstay challenge lists will always carry far more information, winners, dates, rules, dt calls, linky parties, and so forth. 
They are the big league newspapers. Use them all! Play and have fun. 

While you are playing with paper- go see what Looking 4 Challenges has to share. And if you have a challenge blog you'd like listed, please leave the address in comments at L4C. 

(there is a TAB for comments at L4C. Or click HERE )

Happy crafting, Victoria aka Pirate Cat L4C
