365 Cards and Card Patterns Challenge Entry

Todays challenge on 365 Cards was an inspiration challenge. Make a card using this picture as inspiration.

I used the sketch from CardPatterns - Sketch #9.

Here's my card. I really like the pink and green combo. I pulled the outdoorsy feel out of the room and threw it onto my card. Just love this collection of Forest Friends.

Thanks for lookingl

365 Cards - Day 34 - That's Eggs-ellent!

Today's challenge on 365 Cards was to use an egg shape or an oval on your card as the dominating shape. I picked the egg shape. I have a new Quickutz Silhouette and am eager to use it whenever possible. Usually I forget I have it, because, well, it's new.

But this time I remembered. AND I remembered that I have these awesome egg shapes.

I cut out the card with the egg shaped opening. Then I cut out two eggs. One was the mirror image of the other one. Then I put wet adhesive all over the back side of one egg, placed a string down the middle and then placed the other egg on top. I attached the strings to the inside of the card, and hid it with a strip of coordinating paper.

I can't take a good photo at night to save my life, but I tried anyway. Had to get this post up. Right???

I know that something/s are missing from the card, but I can't put a finger on what I want to add. Hmmmm. Maybe if I sleep on it.

365 - White Space - Day 33 - My Day 2

White Space - The challenge today is to only use 1/3 of the top or bottom of the card.

Mine is Blue Space. This must be my "Blue Period." I made a card for Mojo Monday, on Tuesday. Then yesterday I made a card for 365 Cards. I just used what I had out already. It worked into the theme. So today, I used what I still had out. I usually don't work with blue. But this week it is working for me, so I am going with it.

Please excuse my lack of photography skills. I can't seem to get a clear shot. Grrrrr.

365 Cards

365 Cards is posting a card making challenge everyday. YUP. EVERYDAY.

I have made my second card for 365. Not for the second day in a row.

I would like to make a card everyday. And I will TRY. But, no, repeat, NO promises.

Anyway, the challenge today is to use water. Not the liquid. Well, I guess you could use it in your technique, but the challenge is to use water as inspiration. Here is my take:

I used water as inspiration. I used different shades of blue. And found this cute little whale button in my stash. (loosely read, found in the mass of "stuff" on my scrap table).

I am just now considering getting into stamping and coloring. Because I don't have enough on my plate right now. LMAO. But, seriously. I love the cards I am seeing on everyone else's blogs. I want to make pretty cards too. I wanna play.

Thanks for looking.

Mojo Monday

Just a day late. Always a dollar short.

Here's my take on the Mojo Monday sketch. Didn't stretch it. At all.

Used scraps. Wonderful feeling. Just a little ink and ribbon. A bit of bling. Even the butterfly was a leftover scrap.
