November Challenge Entry

I've received a couple entries already for November's challenge. This is the first one I received from Donna Davis. This beautiful card was made with paper that is an oldie but a goodie.

November's challenge is not due until December so you have lots of time to get me your pics!

And don't forget about October's challenge. Your chance to participate is coming to an end. Just send me a picture of something you created using stuff you bought from me a while ago and haven't used yet.

Felicity and Wishes

Here are the rest of the cards I worked on last weekend at Byrncliff. I just can't get enough of that old Felicity paper pack and stamp set. It is an oldy but a goody. I tried with these cards to make an assortment of masculine and feminine. Most of them lean towards the feminine what can i say... i love bling and flourishes and glitter! I used a wide assortment of stamp sets and cricut cuts. Most cricut images are from Art Philosophy (such as the cupcake, stars, scallopped circle and border, leaves, flowers and dragonfly). Some are from other cartridges (Hoot N Holler for the owl and Wildlife for the eagle).

Another Wishes Card Workshop

Had a great time at Marsha and Linda's Byrncliff Resort weekend crop last weekend! I spent all weekend working on two 20-Card workshops. Here are some of the cards from one of the workshops. I used Wonderland Paper and all different stamp sets and Cricut cuts. I started this workshop with my friend Donna a couple weeks ago and finished the cards last weekend. I have all my Christmas cards done for this year! Earliest ever! These workshops really make it fun and easy to do a lot of different cards in a short period of time with detailed (yet very small-think magnifying glass) cutting instructions. They are designed to be decorated a little more simply, but of course I have to make everything a little more The Wishes book is a great tool to use when you are designing cards. With a wide variety of different sizes and shapes of cards it's very versatile... as well as three different card workshops.

Reminder to my customers... you still have time to get your artwork submitted to me for the October Challenge. I know some of you have created artwork using old stuff you purchased quite a while ago and just need to take a pic and send it to me. What are you waiting for?!

H2H Color Challenge

Last week's Heart2Heart Challenge was a color challenge. We were to create something using Autumn Terracotta, Juniper and Bamboo. As has been the case I am a little behind, but here is my card. I used the old Felicity paper pack, the flourish from You and Me and the bird is from Bird Basics. Also, one of my new favorite sets, Universal Backgrounds is on the base. I have really been enjoying these challenges as they keep me creating at least once a week. The challenges are open to everyone and you can participate by clicking on the link above.
