Just Magnolia - Week 35 -Sweet 16 times 2

First let me say farewell to Rach, Kim & Martine. Your work has so inspired me, so I will continue to peek in on your blogs so I don't miss a beat. What a great sketch to leave us with Martine. I know this is one I'll use again and again. And let me also say congratulations to Jacque, Sheila & Jane. Welcome to the team, I look forward to seeing your lovely creations. Here is my take on the sketch.

This is the first card that I did, I followed last weeks Whiff of Joy Challenge, but alas, never got a chance to post it in time for the challenge.

Thanks for looking,

Simon Says - Animal Antics

This is for the Simon Says challenge - Animal Antics which is to use an animal somewhere on your card. I used this adorable bear that I fell in love with from Stampavie. I decided to get another Christmas card out of the way and followed the sketch on the Whiff of Joy challenge. I love this sketch and am sure I will use it again and again.

Piano Lessons-PDCC03

Just a quick post today, nothing fancy, This was the card I made for my Mom's 78th Birthday which was 3 weeks ago, just haven't had the chance to upload it, It is from the Saturday Evening Post series and so reminded me of all the piano lessons my parents endured over the many years of practicing that I had to purchase the image and make her a card. The image was much much bigger than I thought it would be so not much embelishing. Now to do Dad's card who's 85th Birthday is Sunday. Sandi thanks for letting me know about this challenge..

iCopic #15-Red Hair & Just Magnoia - Monochrome

Wow 2 challenges in one card again. Over at the iCopic site this weeks challenge is Red Hair. Well once again thanks to the wonderful tutorials, I think I got it. And over at the Just Magnolia site, Monochrome is this weeks theme. Since I had this paper out, I decided use blues. Because of the chaos this week, I took baby steps in putting this card together, I colored it on Sunday, cut the papers, Monday morning before I went to work, assembled it on Tuesday, Wednesday I added the ribbon again before I went to work and finally put it together and took a picture so I can get it in for the Magnolia challange. Hopefull things will run smoother next week and it won't take me a week to get one card

PennyBlack # 73 White on White

This was done for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. This weeks challange is White on White. Not as bad as it sounds since the card and all embellishments are in white, the only color is on your image. I used my trusty DCWV pre-embossed card and my Pendant nesties and lots of dimentionals. To finish the card off, I wanted to place a white ribbon with a huge bow accross the center, but alas, I don't have any white ribbon, so maybe next time I hit Michaels I'll pick some up and finish it off, but for now, here's my take on the challenge.

Paper: Paper Trey WHite, Pre-embossed card from DCWV
