Sunday sketch

This card came together very quickly for me. I loved the sketch for Challenge 245 and wanted to use it for a Thanksgiving card.

Minty goodness!


Mad About Mint was the theme for Day 246. We could take that phrase however we wanted and create a card. I immediately thought of peppermints and knew that I had the perfect stamp. I had just purchased the stripe border stamp today and thought it would be perfect in red to represent a candy cane!

Large sentiment card


Day 247's challenge was Loud and Clear -- used a large sentiment on a card. I've never done this before (noticing a pattern here?!). I hand cut the frame, then stamped and glittered the sentiment.

Ad inspired

Challenge 248 is ad inspired. We were given this ad:

This is what I made. I loved the greens and browns and I also mimicked the 3 frames above the bed.


Coil card


Day 249's challenge wanted us to use a coil pop-up. I've never done one of these before and I struggled a bit before settling on a design I liked.

Fall Flourish


I loved 365 cards challenge 251! Fall colors with at least 3 flourishes! I used a card with a pre-cut window, covered the inside with gold paper and added a thank you sentiment. I used 3 flourish stamps and randomly stamped with versamark ink all over the front. Then I sprayed the front with gold glimmer mist to make the flourishes stand out a bit. The finishing touch was some of my fave multi-colored fiber.

Combo Challenge 250

For Challenge 250 we had to choose a previous challenge from the past 3 months and combine something from each into 1 card.

August 179 was a white space sketchSeptember 209 was a "keep it simple" challenge - 1 image, 1 sentiment and 1 embellishment
October 237 included stamping on an envelope to match the card
