Yesterday's Recipe Card

This week was my week to choose the recipe for the recipe challenge at Tamara's Sketches. So, my recipe was bling, a non-scrapping item & a punch.

I've had this caning from an old chair laying around forever and I decided to use it on my card this week. I found this challenge to be a little challenging (I guess that's why they call them challenges lol). You'd think I'd make the recipe easier so I could just whip something up lol, nope not me. The punch I used was a little flower punch and my "bling" is the little jewels in the center of the flowers. I used a sketch at scrapfreak to create this card too.

I've actually been doing some creating but haven't taken the time to post everything on the blog. The rest of this week I have to get my treat bags completed for my trick or treaters. Hopefully I'll remember to take a pic of those and post them.

Recipe Challenge Tuesday

Hello everyone, it's tuesday which means time for another recipe challenge for Sketches by Tamara. I took last week off, I feel like my scrapping life has been busy busy lately with classes at my lss and get my new cuttlebug blog up and going and I feel like I haven't had a chance to make anything for myself lately. Ah who am I kidding, I hardly ever make anything for myself lol.

This coming weekend we have our cuttlebug camp going on over at Cuttlebug Challenges and there will be prizes and lots of workshops and other things going on all weekend over there so be sure to check it out! Im hostessing a few of the workshops so I'll be posting some of those things here on my blog too. I still have to get some of those items made :)

Anyway onto today's challenge. I had to create a card using staples, gingham & paper piercing. This is the first time I have tried paper piercing, Im not sure I like how it turned out on this particular card, but I've seen it on other people's work and I love it, guess I just need to try some more. Besides the recipe challenge, this is also a card I made for one of the freaky friday challenges over at Scrapfreak. Here's my card.

Recipe Challenge

It's tuesday which means it's time for another recipe challenge card. This week's challenge was to use paint, buttons and distressing. This card came together perfectly for me and I love how it turned out! I love the shabby chic look of it. I painted the cardboard, the edges of the pink paper and the punched out snowflake too. I think I need to use paint more :) You can't really see it to well but the little tag off the snowflake says Merry Christmas.

OK here's my card.

I just wanted to note too that at the beginning of the year I joined a challenge to make my Christmas cards monthly so by the end of Oct. I would have them all complete. I had to make 4 cards a month in order to have what I needed to send out. Well yesterday I counted all my christmas cards and I have 39 of them made! Wooo hooo! I missed some months but obviously I made it up somewhere along the way lol. So just one more to make and I met my goal! I will probably make some more to have for my stash though.

And my update for world card making day, I didn't make any cards, I actually didn't scrap at all on saturday. I really do need to get back into it though, I have too many things I want to get done. I also have a busy week/weekend ahead of me.

Have a great day everyone!
