Miss You


Day 98 @ 365Cards.blogspot.com


1) Day 98 @ 365Cards.blogspot.com – Okay, it’s cheesy, but today’s challenge is inspired by my anniversary!  I’ve been married to my sweet hubby for 13 years, so I’m looking for 13 of something on your card.  It can be ANYTHING, as long as there is EXACTLY 13 of that item on your card.

There is exactly 13 colors in the balloon (not counting the basket).

2) CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #6This week at CAS-ual Fridays we are playing Tic Tac Toe. Each 3-in-a-row line holds a recipe and you get to choose the row that works for you.

Choose a row: across, down, or diagonal and then Create a Clean & Simple design using those elements in your project. Be sure to tell us which row you used.

I used Chip Board (the colors of the balloon are glued to the chipboard), dies or punch (I used a corner punch to make scallops), Twine.

3) Crafty Creations Challenge #122  – Over the Rainbow. Because of all of the rain we’ve had in different areas of the globe, what more fun than to use this CLASSIC song from THE WIZARD OF OZ movie as inspiration for our creations.

Day 101 @ 365Cards.blogspot.com / GAB #19


1) Day 101 @ 365Cards.blogspot.com – Words of Wisdom –  Or perhaps I should call it “Words of Inspiration”, because that’s what we’re looking for on this challenge. You know how it is when you get a card and it has such a wonderful sentiment that it just makes you feel good?  It might have a sentiment that inspires you or makes your day a little brighter.

Inside card:  “never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again.” – Flavia Weedn (Found in CardMaker “The Perfect Sentiments” – pg 29)
