Catching up!

This post has a few pictures to it as the title states, I am catching up on Angel's challenges. The cool thing is that once I get my bookmark posted in a few minutes, I will be caught up and can get extra chances to win all the goodies!!!

This first card is a color challenge....pretty in pink, old olive, bashful blue and real, kind of tough! But when I was looking through my papers I came across this BG Figgy Pudding paper that had most of the colors, so I just put in on the pink card and added some more red and green to finish it off. At first I was not so sure of it, but it grew on me and now I love it!

The second card is from a sketch, it still seems a bit busy for me, but has grown on me. I thought it would work nicely for a masculine birthday card and hubby agrees with me (so that always makes me feel better) Again I am using a lot of papers from last year, can't buy anymore until I use some of them up ;)

I really liked this challenge, it was ANYTHING Christmas and I had something in mind I wanted to try, so what better time? I thought that a pop up card with a picture on it would be a great xmas card to send out, but since I had never made a pop up card I needed to try one first. I realize that it is hard to read the words on the paper, should have stamped them in either black or white....but it was my first attempt, and these are so fun that I will be making more!

This card was another sketch, and can I tell you that I just love the way it turned out!!! Very simple layout and I LOVE these new stamps I got...both are hostess sets :)

Another fun challenge was something made with only scraps....pretty easy for me as I have a ton of scraps from over 12 years of crafting (not that many of my first scraps are still around, I just have a hard time throwing paper away...) Again, more dp from SU last year and I had the scallop circles sitting in there too, I just put a vellum scallop on top of the white so it was not too bright. I added some eyelets from ELE and a Christmas stamp, and there you have it...another xmas card done!

This card is based off another sketch....this card is my favorite by far!!!! I found this great paper at my LSS and I had to take 2 pics so you could see some of the glitter on the black paper (so sparkly!) A very simple card to make with the sketch, I will make more using all of these sketches I am sure!

Thanks for looking and I will post my book mark in a few minutes, so make sure to check that one out too!!!
