365 Cards, April 8

Thank goodness it's hump day! It's been a long week at work and am looking forward to the Easter weekend (well, after I get off work on Saturday).

The colors for the Wacky Color Wednesday challenge are orange, purple and green. I'm not sure if you can tell from the photo, but the orange and green cardstock are embossed - I used the Stampin' Up! Backgrounds I texturz plates (page 203 of the current Idea Book and Catalog).

365 Cards, April 7

Today's card is modeled after a quilt. For this challenge, I used Bella Birds DSP by Stampin' Up! I was doing well until I started talking on the phone and became a bit distracted (as you can see by the gap between the middle and right columns.) I tried to minimize the gap by covering it with the sentiment. I think it still looks pretty good!

365 Cards, April 6

The challenge for April 6 asked us to use chipboard. Honestly, I never used chipboard and therefore, didn't have any. I was cruising the aisles at my local JoAnn's and found a pack of cute flowers. I have never seen a teal flower, so I created my own. Voila!

This card represents the sunny days we've had these last two days here in Washington. I think it's supposed to get gloomy again by the end of the week. Poop!

365 Cards, April 5

I was creating a birthday card for a friend and thought I should incorporate today's challenge. I had this Spring Mat Paper Pack for a while now and figured now was a good time to experiment with it. All the paper came from the same pack, but the bottom two layers, as well as the stamp, are from Stampin' Up! I know it's pretty simple, but I think the colors represent what I'm wishing for: warm weather!
