My day started with a card that was so off track, I just threw the whole thing away. Usually, I can salvage something, but not today. So, imagine my surprise that the next few things I tried actually worked. I did not have all that much time today, but managed to make four cards. Not even sure how that happened.
My first card is a baby card. I am playing along with Less is More #117, which is a sketch challenge. It's been a while since I have entered this challenge. My card is super simple--a piece of patterned paper from an American Crafts pad I recently picked up at Target--it doesn't have a name on it, which is strange. I stamped my sentiment in Versamark and then Calypso Coral, and embossed it onto vellum. The pearls on the sentiment strip hide the pop dots underneath.
Next up is my card for this week's CASology #42, where the cue word is 'CARE'. My FIL just spent a couple of days for testing and observation in the hospital, so I thought it would be nice to send him a masculine get well card. I hope that this card is not too busy to be CAS. There really is not much going on, except for a sheet of patterned paper from the same pad that was still on my desk from the previous card.
This card is for Dynamic Duos #50. This was the challenge I started with this morning, when I had to throw my card away. I came back to it later with a completely different idea. Now that I have a lot of SU paper and ink, I am finding that I often have exactly what is called for. In this case, I had Calypso Coral, but had to substitute Pretty in Pink for Blushing Bride.
Last up is my card for this week's ColourQ cQc #187. I really like these colors together, and may try to get to this one again. For today, I used Sketched Shapes, and made a birthday card, that I will also be linking up to CAS-ual Fridays CFC#99.
That's it for me today.
