A Couple of Color Challenge Cards

Here are two cards that I had done a couple of weeks ago using a Color Challenge from the Play Date Cafe - PDCC94.  The Colors to use were Fudge, Goldenrod and Teal.  Definitely a stretch for me but I have a couple more cards to add to my stash :)  I love the saying from the GWP stamp on the card above - what a great reminder.


And this one uses one of the last sketches we had on our Angel Company Web site.  :(  I also had to try the gathered ribbon technique since I hadn't tried it yet.  It was kinda fun and I can't wait to use it again....stay tuned!

Have a great week all!

Kerry's Color Throwdown #7

Here is a quick card I did using the OH SO CUTE stamp set Emma's Cheese - I am so glad that I got a chance to get this set before it was too late.  She is adorable.  Kerry posted a Color Throwdown Challenge that used 2 shades of Gray and Yellow with ivory - didn't have any ivory with me so used the white.  It was a challenge for me but I think it turned out pretty well...  Hope you like it too!

The inside has the greeting that comes with cute little Lucy that says " Age doesn't matter unless you are a cheese"  Love it!

Have a great week.  I'll be back with another posting this weekend - I will be gone but have it scheduled.

August Christmas Card Challenge Cards

Over at Paper Wings some of us have gotten together to have a "Challenge" to get our Christmas Cards done a little at a time so we aren't scrambling at the last minute to get them done.....  My (realistic) goal was 8 cards per month and in August I did 10 (my actual goal) They don't have to all be the same or all different so I mixed it up a bit... And counting the ones I did for the July Blog Hop I am making some progress :)

Here is the group picture of 7 that I did all alike.  Love this Santa head that was a Level C hostess set "Love This Day"  Pretty simple but I like how they turned out.  The first one is a little different as it was my "trial" one. I liked it so made 6 more but had to use a different red. 

Here are a couple that I did using up MORE scraps and the cute little reindeer from the Jingle Jolly Set.  Again pretty simple but fun to work with.

And this last one was just a fluke.  I was working on another card with Lucy's Cheese and thought I would see if I could make it into a Christmas Card.  Nothing Spectacular but an easy one to mail - not much layering and no thick embellishments.

Hope you enjoyed.  Off next weekend to a stamping/scrapbooking retreat and going to work on my September cards!  Have a great week!
