"From the Heart" challenge at CIE

Hello, happy February 2016! Today marks the beginning of a new fun challenge at Cards In Envy: "From the Heart". Your card must be A2 size, not square, and flat for mailing without extra postage (and hassle). Your creations for this challenge can be love cards or Valentines.

Here is my card for the Design Team; I like the old-fashioned Valentine feeling of this digi stamp.

A unique challenge at 55CCT!

I love a good card challenge! The challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is "Shades of Orange"! I thought of the box of oranges we receive every Christmas and found this vintage image. Then I looked through my paper stash and --stroke of good luck-- this dp from Teresa Collins' "Tell Your Story" 6x6 pad looks like orange and aqua poinsettias to me! I made the little "Joy" tag and added some Stickles to pump up the holiday feel. I'm not sure how well this works as a Christmas card, but I like how it looks and it was a fun challenge!

"White On White" Challenge at CIE!

Another new challenge for the New Year at Cards In Envy, where we make A2-sized cards that are nice and flat for mailing without extra postage and hassle!
Here's my White On White card, in the vintage style I love:

Music/singing card with image I drew

Hi. This is a special post for me this evening because I drew the image of the little boy! The theme at Frilly & Funkie Blog is "Sing, Sing, Sing!" I love to sing and love music, but I couldn't find any vintage image or stamp that inspired me...so I decided to draw my own. It was fun paper piecing my own image! I got the music notes off the web, colored and cut them out. The "JOY" stickers were in my stash.

My card may be more vintage style than frilly or funky but I had a lot of fun making it. Hope you like this!
