Oh No! It's all gotta go!!!

I just realized this morning that I better start cleaning up and moving out the mess in my dining room so I can serve Thanksgiving dinner next week.  Naturally, I started by using up a few scraps from my Red Hat card class on Monday to make this card: 
The inside reads "It's a Banner Day!"
This card is my entry in the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #169 - Anything Goes
Crafty Girls Challenge #6 - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments Challenge #94 - Any Sentiment
Inspired by Stamping November Blog Hop Challenge - Ribbon or Crochet Trim
Fab N Funky Challenge # 194 - Anything Goes
Sweet Stamps Challenge #144 - Anything Goes
Through the Craft Room Door Challenge Nov 19-25 - Anything Goes
Through the Purple Haze Challenge - Use pink, purple, or red
The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge #57 - Use Violet
Ribbon Carousel Challenge #87 - Holidays and Celebrations

Here are the cards I designed for the Red Hat class I taught Monday.  I didn't bling up my samples, but let the ladies go wild with embellishments on their own.  Their cards all looked fabulous when finished.


Look at all the stuff on my table and hutch.

I better get started!  
I'm sure I'll be making a few more cards as I wade through the mess.  
Good thing a lot of the scraps are red, perfect for a few more Christmas cards.
