Merry Christmas/Happy Birthday

 My blog has been neglected of late.  I've only been posting cards that I've made for the two design teams on which I serve.  Not sure how that happened, but I shall try to do better.


Tuesday I taught a small card class of Delightful Dazzling Dames, my Red Hat Chapter.  It was a purple/butterfly themed class.  These are the four cards they made.


As I was putting my supplies away and using up extra pieces, I decided to revise the bottom right card. 

How do you like this?

The dies are from Cheery Lynn (bell), Sizzix (sentiment), and ODBD (frame).

 

Now I'll pop this into a few challenges and then go back to putting my supplies away.


Challenges:  

Cardz 4 Gals Challenge #176 - Triangles 

Krafty Chicks Challenge # 618 Week 5 - Anything Goes 

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes

Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge #660

 

Welcome to my blog, where I have
a new card
to share with you each week for
Tuesday Morning Sketches

Does anyone else have trouble throwing out scraps of paper?  I save it all.  You just never know. Right? But eventually my scrap box starts bulging at the seams. To alleviate the problem, I pulled out the smaller pieces and began die cutting flowers in all shapes, colors, and sizes.  So what if there is only room on the piece of scrap to cut 4 of the 5 petals?  I can hide that under another flower and no one will be the wiser. 


For this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge card, I decided to use some of the flowers and leaves that are currently in small piles on my dining room table.
 
 
 Here is this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch:
 
and my card:

What do you think?

Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #659

 

Welcome to my blog, where I have
a new card
to share with you each week for
Tuesday Morning Sketches


 Here is this week's sketch:
 
 
Schools in our area will soon be dismissing for the summer.  It's always nice to thank those who have helped your child this past school year, be it the teacher, the bus driver, the janitor who gets those kick balls off the roof, the crossing guard, the school secretary, the lunch ladies or gents, et al.
With that in mind I used this week's sketch to make a school themed thank you card.

 Here's another card I made using the same sketch.


 
 
I hope you'll have time to play along at
