 Card #1...


As You See It // #AYSI259 ...A speed challenge!! With a little humor added!!  My humor was in my punny sentiment.  The time for this card 8.5 minutes.  Most of that time was spent cutting out the pieced layer.

CASology // #395 ...A cue card challenge!!  The cue card for this challenge...ONE!  Since my granddaughter is turning one next week I made her this birthday card...the number one with one single lamb.



Card #2...

Add Some Metal

Cardz 4 Guyz // #C4G280 ...A male challenge with a bit of metal!!  Today begins a new challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz!!  We would love to see your take on our "add some metal" challenge!!

Try Stampin On Tuesday // #TSOT524 ...A sketch challenge!!  All the layers in this sketch made for a busy card but this card represents the chaos that comes in times of grief!!

Sentiment as Focus
Papercraft Challenges // #74 ...A sentiment focus challenge!!  Pull out those large sentiments!!  It took some snipping and adjusting to get this large sentiment to fit on my card...sympathy is a long word for a vertical card.
