Last Holiday challenge for OWH

The challenge was to bid farewell to 2010 by making a card that had 10 things on it. Well, keeping it to 10 can be a challenge for me lol. Therefore I made it a double challenge for myself. I am trying to "get it together" to make cards for this worthwhile cause. Heaven knows I would have loved my hubby to have one of these cards to send me when he was deployed so it is the least I can do. The problem is as a new crafter I am terminally slow!!! I just am never happy with a project for days. Well that does not get many cards made so I challenged myself to create a card that I would be proud to send in 45 minutes so that it would be something that I could possibly replicate a few times. So here goes.
4 papers
4 flowers with bling centers
2 ribbons
now STOP
Thanks for looking at my work.
Happy New Year.
Hope that I will see you all in 2011.

A card with no pink.

Wow Christmas is all done and I feel like I have nothing to do. Must be time to attack a challenge or two. Operation Write Home had a challenge to create a card with no pink. funny even though I am not a big fan of pink I tend to use a lot of it in my cards.... but here we go.(Funny when I went to preview my post his ears look a bit pink lol they are light brown for sure!!) This is also the first print and cut image that I have done with MTC that I was happy enough with to use in a project Woohoo!! Planning on cutting out a bunch and Friday night at work making more miss you cards.

I got this idea on HGTV and then of course my engineering hubby had to help me take it to the next level. I have all three "presents" stacked in my foyer and they just plain make me happy. It really turned into an ordeal but any of you who know Jeff will know it will be around for MANY Christmases to come.

Pink Stamper Challenge

I needed to make a birthday card for my cousin. I had decided I wanted to use the Forever young cartridge, but had no plan yet. Then I saw the color challenge on My Pink Stamper and a plan came together. Since her birthday is so close to Christmas I wanted to make sure that it was far from Christmasy and these colors helped accomplish that. The stamp is from the pink stamper everyday life collection.(If you are searching for a second shade of blue, the background of the card is navy not black lol)

The twins are 5!!!!!!!!!!!

Can hardly believe that they are 5 years old! Where does the time go? Eli announced that there are 2 people having birthdays so that means that 2 birthday cakes are needed!! So, it would not do for Grandma to make one card. Of course the cards need to be as different as they are!

Thank you card set

Another of the challenges done. The files for the box and the envelopes was a shared file. I am really happy with the way these came out. I think I will add them in with my Moms Christmas gift. Just previewed and I need to work on the photography ARGH

MTC Cyber Crop

I am so sad that this cyber crop is taking place when I am crazy busy.....sniff sniff.... But I am so thankful that I was able to get a couple complete, photographed and submitted. I will update as I finish a few more..... Wish my vinyl would get here!!!
This first challenge was an in and out card. The window has acetate behind it. I used puff paint and glitter to add the snow. I really like the way this came out. I wish I had thought to add brick behind the fire place before I glued it together lol.
