"Cute and Cuddly" challenge at Cards In Envy

Welcome! Here's my card for the new "Cute and Cuddly" challenge that starts today at Cards In Envy. Take out one of those cute and cuddly images you have (such as teddy bear, bunny, kitten, puppy) and join in the Cards In Envy fun!

Cards In Envy requires A2-sized cards (no square or shaped cards) which are flat for mailing (no thick embellishments or layers).  I hope you'll join in and I look forward to seeing what you create. You have two weeks!

Calling All Book Lovers!

Welcome! The August challenge at Words 2 Scrap By is one I can't resist! The challenge is "Calling All Book Lovers!" and it's in honor of National Book Day. You can choose from these suggested titles as listed at W2SB, or pick a book that inspires you to make a card:

"Here are a few ideas, or choose one of your favorites:

  • Where the Wild Things Are
  • The Good Earth
  • Eat, Pray, Love
  • Winnie-the-Pooh
  • Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus"
I chose The Good Earth by Pearl Buck because it's a great book and I immediately thought of the fun digital images at Hambo. Here's the card I came up with:

Hambo Digital Stamps
Cloud digis are from Vera Lane Studio
Thanks for stopping by. There's still lots of time to join in this fun challenge over at Words 2 Scrap By!

Here is a card I made for the Red & Green color challenge this week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown:

I love looking through sites that provide royalty-free vintage images. I couldn't resist this little girl in her red jacket and green plaid skirt.

Cards In Envy has a new challenge and two new DT members!

There's a new challenge starting today at Cards In Envy: BIRTHDAY PARTY! Who doesn't love a birthday party and making birthday cards! Click on the highlighted link above to go to the blog and read the challenge rules.

Today is also my first challenge as a member of the Cards In Envy Design Team! I'm so excited and proud to be a new member of the team! As a long-time OWH'er, we learned very well the importance of flat, A2-size cards when we were making cards for the troops. I think that's a skill that carries over well to ease of mailing flat cards to all our families and friends.

Here is my birthday card:

Stamps: My Favorite Things Pure Innocence

Silver gel pen
I hope you liked my card and I'm so glad you visited my blog. Hope you will join in this fun Birthday Party challenge at Cards In Envy. I look forward to seeing what you create!
