Happy Wednesday my friends. I've got four cards to post today for a variety of challenges. First up is a card for this week's Festive Friday FFC #23, The Card Concept #2 and Addicted to CAS--NEW.
For Festive Friday, I took my inspiration from the red barn, the snowy scene, and the trees. I am pretty sure that this is my first time playing at Festive Friday.
The texture for the Card Concept challenge is provided by the bumpy rows of faux stitching on the edges of the snowy hills. I am especially excited to be playing at The Card Concept because one of my besties, Cathy, has recently joined the team. I am putting this card into the Clean and Layered category. What do you think?
My new supplies on this card are the ME Landscape Trio dies and the Holiday Home stamp set. I used houses from Holiday Home and trees from City Scene.
Next up is a card for this week's Fusion #2, where I took my inspiration from the photo--the colors, flowers and wood plank background. The challenge at A Blog Named Hero #36 is 'New year, new stash'. The Hero Arts Hydrangea stamp is practically brand new, since I have only used it one other time. I am also entering this card at Addicted to CAS--NEW. Lastly, the challenge at Simon Says Monday is 'A is for...' and I am using the word ANGLE because my design features patterned paper cut at an angle.
My last two cards are for the color challenge over at Reverse Confetti. Given that I only have one die and one stamp set from Reverse Confetti, I was a bit stumped. But, sometimes having less forces more creativity, and I actually ended up with two ideas for this challenge.
So, lucky me--I now have two more birthday cards for my stash, and I think these could be used for either gender. And, because they are both textured using the PTI Numbers impression plate, I'm going to link them both up at this week's Card Concept #2. And, I'm calling both of these clean and layered.
That's it for me today. I am going to my first official meeting with my daughter's college counselor. Wish me luck. Where the years have gone is a mystery to me. I am not ready for all of this.
Thanks for Visiting
