Beach Birthday and CTMH Card Class 7/17/2018

Before someone chastises me for neglecting to post the cards from Joyce's class on Tuesday, here they are:

Cute, huh?
Yesterday I taught a class for some of my Red Hat gals. 
(I'll show you those cards another day.)
While I was preparing for that class, I made this card using some  leftover items.  After I had it made, I decided I liked it better than the one I had already designed and cut for the class.
As You Like It Challenge - Ribbons or Buttons  (Definitely ribbons!  Buttons are lumpy for mailing and, in my opinion, always look better when there is thread in the holes.  Too much trouble threading a needle.)
Southern Girls Challenge - Tic Tac Toe (I'm using a Happy Birthday die cut and a stitched frame die cut; a CTMH lighthouse stamp, and blue.)
Time Out Challenge #114 - Photo Inspiration (I was inspired by the colors and the beachy feel of the photo)


Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Use a die and/or punch (I used a die for the words and the center image.)
Cards in Envy Challenge - On the beach (lighthouse, sand, grass and fence) 
Use Your Stuff Challenge #321 - Birthday (I think a day at the beach would be a perfect way to spend a birthday.)

That's it for today.  I need to take a book outside and enjoy this beautiful day. 


  1. super collection of cards and I just love your beach scene, you got the feel of our photo so well and also got all the fab colours in. Great to see you at Time Out x
