This week was filled with celebrations!! I had several cards to make, so rather than trying to fill each challenge, I was looking for challenges that fit my needs. A little backwards, I know. But it worked well. This card became so much more interesting then I originally planned.
Here is the challenge. These three items had to be Included in the card: a sticker, ink, and at least 1 piece of patterned paper.
Here is my card that I made for my cousins graduation!
I used ink on the outside of the card and the green strip. The Tassel quote is a sticker, and the patterned paper (by Recollections) is all over the back. This was a really fun one to make. :)
"A circle is round, it has no end, that's how long I want to be your friend!!!"
I'm having flashbacks to my Girl Scout days. :) This challenge, Circle Up, was to use a minimum of 10 circles. It took me a while to get 10 on there. At first they were all too big. Then I made the four small circles in the corners which solved all the problems. This one was for my mom this mother's day.
Today I am heading to a wedding shower for a family friend. I'm definitely looking forward to shower games and food (though at the moment I am thoroughly enjoying my coffee.) I went to check out my favorite idea blog while making this card, and low and behold, the very first post for a new year of 365 Card Challenges is themed New Beginnings. So my new beginning is for a wedding shower. :)
The brides theme is very vintage, so I enjoyed this combo of old, new and aged styles. The "Love" font in the middle is from my new cricut cartridge. I'm super excited to be using that as well.
Just so you all know, Stilts has been here with his paws on my hands, helping me type this. I love my Techno-Kitty!!!
A new house, an entire craft room, and a ton of projects to share with you. I'm so glad to be blogging again. The garage is almost unpacked, and the house is not only functional, but for the most part it's presentable when people come over. Small miracle there. :) Starting today, I'm finally getting back to making cards, which I haven't for a while now. There have been so many projects around the house that they took over. I'm starting off with a wedding shower card that I will probably be posting tomorrow. Til then!!!!
Have a great day, and keep crafting!
