The sketch for this card came from the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. Another great sketch. The other challenge was at Do You Stack UP. The challenge here was to use patterned paper. This is a really hard one for me because you just can't use your designer paper because then when that perfect project comes along you won't have that paper. As if there is never going to be another beautiful paper out there. Yeh right!!! My goal this year is to dig into that stash and use it don't hoard it. Thanks for looking

I think this may be the most challenges I have done at one time. The Sketch for this card came from the Critter Sketch Challenge. The colors which are Aqua, Coral and Green came from the challenge at Just Us Girls. The Challenge at Crazy for Challenges was to do a Thank You and finally the challenge at Stamp Something was anything. The stamped flower and leaves are from Heartfelt Creations. The sentiment is from Stampin Up. The beautiful circle is a Spellbinders die that I recently got on sale for $5.34---What a deal. You can't really see it, but I scored the background piece for some texture. I colored the flower and leaves with copic markers.
The sketch for this card came from the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. The stamps that are used came from Kitchen Sink. I love the cup of Hot Chocolate. The looke comes from four stamps that are layered. I used a new tool called the Sew Easy to do the stitching on the tag.

The Challenge at Do You Stack Up this week is distress. This card uses the technique called aged tiles from Technique Junkies. It is a sort of distressed look. I also distressed the edge. I colored the image (Rubbernecker) with pearlescent paint.

I need several cards for Birthdays this month. I got the sketch from Sketch Saturday. The challenge at Just Us Girls was envy of envies (envelopes). So the challenge was to decorate the envelope. The stamp set I used is from Heidi Grace. I just love the colors in the paper. So here again I tried to use paper from my paper stash.
Also want to use this card for the challenge at Do you Stack UP. The challenge here was to use buttons.
The design for this card came from the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog and the theme of flowers came from Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central. The stamp of the beautiful flowers is from JustRite and the sentiment is Lockhart Stamp Co. I made the background with a technique from Technique Junkies called Faux Marbling.

The New Year's resolution is to pull out some things I just had to have and don't use as often as I should. I used the sketch from Midnight Madness for this card. I am trying to use paper in my stash because you know if I use it I can always buy some more beautiful paper. The stamp set here is from Rubber Stamp Tapestry. Words are from Lockhart Stamp Co. I want to send this to one of the ladies in my Yahoo group that became very ill after Christmas.
