Just Some Random Cards

I was on card making high this weekend! Think my hubby might feel a bit neglected. Just had such a good time creating. Here's what I did for your viewing pleasure. At least I hope it's your pleasure...

I mentioned in a previous post, that I made a series of these office envelope cards. Here's the last two. A birthday card and one that could be used for a graduation, wedding, promotion, retirement, etc...

Well, until next time...

OWH Sketch #38

Here's mine for the OWH Sketch #38 for this week. I combined it with the Midweek Throwdown Challenge, as well. I used a digital stamp I got from the Cutting Cafe and made it into a paper pieced tree.

First, the sketch:

Well, until next time...

Some More OWH Midweek Throwdown Challenge Card

Here's several more Midweek Throwdown Challenge cards. Again, the challenge was to make Christmas cards.

I made a series of these office envelope cards. I made these two Christmas cards and then two others that I'll post in a different post.

Until next time...

Midweek Throwdown Challenge at OWH

The Midweek Throwdown Challenge at OWH was to make Christmas cards. Here's a few I did last night and I have a few more in the works that I'll post tomorrow.

I used my new set of Stampendous! stamps for this one. It has red crystals on the one tree, but they don't show up too well in the photo.

Used my new Whipper Snapper Designs stamp and my Top Note Sizzix die for this card. Aren't they just the cutest polar bears?!

Until next time...

Cards, Cards and More Cards

Here's a bunch more for you to look at! Enjoy!

Made this joy fold card for my daughter's 18th birthday. She absolutely loved it! She's really into the animal print stuff right now, so it was a big hit.

Made this one with a Cutting Cafe background.

Well, until next time...

UW Stevens Point Visit

Our visit to UW Stevens Point yesterday went well! Thank goodness we found the university with no problem, because stupid me left all the directions and itinerary on the kitchen table! We learned a lot of valuable information on financial aid and degrees they offer. We got to tour the campus, meet with one of the art department professors, tour the art department, see a dorm room, speak with current UWSP students and eat in the cafeteria. Erin isn't offering a whole lot of feedback, yet, but this is, after all, her visit to a campus. We're off to see UW Stout and UW Eau Claire in two weeks and Carthage College in three weeks. I think she's on overload to be honest, but that's how she deals with stuff. Gotta give her her space!

Well, until next time...

OWH Sketch #37

I got 3 cards done today using the Operation Write Home sketch #37. I was attempting to do Sandy's 5 card challenge, but after I got the third card done, I read the challenge again and discovered the cards were supposed to be all the same... duh! I'm not quite sure where to post them, yet, either, so I'll have to do a little more research. So, I'll give it another try tomorrow night maybe! But all is not lost because I got these three done!
The sketch:

Until next time...
