Tonic Challenge

This card is for the OWH Star and Stamp Challenge from Tonic.
I was out of black card stock so I colored white with Copic markers.  The sentiment was printed from Word document.  The lace was attached to black paper.  The design paper is some I forgot to mark with the maker.  It is pretty design paper.  The idea for the touch of red was from a earlier challenge.  Thank you for taking the time to come to my blog.

Love is always in Season

Love as a challenge for MWT at Star and Stripes blog.  I am so glad I am able to craft again.  I love making cards and feeling like I am able to do something for someone else.
I had to use this paper that I only had a small piece of it goes so well with the paper snowflakes I was playing with.  My sweet mom got me some cardstock as I was running low on certain colors.

Circle ODBD Challenge

Our Daily Bread Designs will pay to ship our boxes of cards overseas. They will sponsor up to two boxes.  The challenge was to use circles. 

Also I have challenged my self to pick a paper at random and make a card.  I can spend days planning a card and then get started and not like it.   By doing this I have been able to get some cards made with much less planning time.

The Paper is the Card

Just letting the paper do the work of design.  Makes for a pretty card.

Thinking of You Extreme!


Thinking of You happened to be the challenge for today at OWH. I have been trying to use what I have ready so I can get cards made and have room to work as everything that is ready is on my desk. Here is some Thinking of you that are extreme in seasons but simple. Winter and Spring. Although I love butterflies year round. The last one is a Missing you but was the same style card using more scraps. This blog serves as a record for my card making as I began making cards after finding OWH. The paper cut outs were bought off ebay as a way of seeing if I would use them. I bought a flower punch and do not like it as much as I thought I would. I use the premade flowers more. The cards that follow were made from my box of paper that is too small to be background after cutting all my paper up to be card backgrounds.
