365 Cards Day 63 Floral Fest

Put 8 flowers on your card. Sounds like a lot. It is. 365 Cards really pushes you to go outside your comfort zone. I never would have put this many flowers before.

I used Making Memories Chloe's Closet collection. And various flowers. Plus ribbon unknown.
Thanks for looking.

365 Cards - Day 62 - Age is just a number

365 Cards continues to challenge me. Believe it or not, my family, immediate and extended, does not, I repeat, NOT, have a birthday until JULY. And the challenge today is to use a number.

"A number should be on the card - a date, age, whatever - but the number should signify the importance of the event."

I will store this card in my card box until July when my husband turns 53.

Thanks for looking.

365 Cards - Day 61 - Leaf it up to me

365 Cards challenge for today is to incorporate a leaf or leaves on your card.

I have to admit that I made this card, and 3 more, this last weekend at a workshop I attended. But, I really have to clean up my craft table. I have a huge table (3x6 ft) and not an inch of space to work. I have just managed to keep pulling things out and not putting anything away. So tonight I am going to start the clean-up.

Anyway, this card does fit the bill for today.

I know it is all Stampin Up stuff. But I don't know the names of any of it. Except Kiwi Kiss is the really cool name of the green paper and ink. Oh, yeah, and Cheep Talk is the name of the stamp set. I ordered the ink, papers and the stamp set. I couldn't help it. Too cute.

365 Catch Up and Mojo Monday

Played catch up tonight. I had 3 cards to make for 365 Cards. And I used the Mojo Monday sketch for one of them.

Day 60 - What? - Use "What?" on your card. This is the one I used the Mojo Monday sketch on.
My oldest dd was coloring some Hello Kitty pages and I saw this one of Kitty gettin' her drink on.

Day 59 - A Certain Sentiment - I Miss You or similar. My wonderful nephew is in boot camp and can only receive mail so I made this for him. I didn't want it too froo-froo.

Day 58 - Something's Fishy - Put a fish on your card. I don't like my coloring, but I won't change it. I'll let one of my girls give it to one of their friends.

Thanks for looking.

365 Cards - Super Sketchy Sunday

365 Cards challenge for today was to use this sketch.

Here's mine. I couldn't play with my papers and toys until tonight. Today was pretty busy. But I got it done. Love me some Friendly Forest. It's just so cute.

I even added a cute Friendly Forest journal tag inside.

I forgot to take a photo. But trust me, it's there.

Thanks for looking.
