A few to share

This card was for a challenge on a scrapbook site I visit when

can. The challenge was to use Navy, Teal and Orange. I didn't like the way this card turned out but recieved a few compliments on it. I don't know, maybe it's the way I used the colors.

This next card was my attempt at something 'vintage' looking. Seems to be all the craze right now and it's not totally my thing but I do like it. So anyway, here it is. I distressed and tore and inked and crinkled. It's okay but not great either. Yikes, maybe I shouldn't be sharing at all these 'failed' attempts. Oh well, I guess not even I can keep you fooled that I'm not perfect. hehe

I love this bird punch, way too cool. Gotta find a reason to use it more.

I am totally getting into this build-a-bear thing. Okay, with the big shot dies anyway. I made this card for my neighbour who turned 2 on Saturday. He was more impressed with the bowling set I got him than with this card....lol

I'm working on making a build-a-bear canvas. My niece wants to make one with all her friends for her birthday party. She'll be my trial run. If things go well, I'll be offering it as a birthday party class.

Until next time...

Those look so fun! I haven't sat down to make a pile of cards in ages, for myself.
