A Good Day

Hey! I actually had some time to do more than one card today! And guess what... I actually like all of them. Ha. Somehow I got on a chipboard kick, so you'll see a lot of that today :-) The chipboard letters are from the Target dollar bins-- oh how i <3 dollar bins :-D

This first one is for 365 Cards' challenge to use a number. I reused a color combo fro
m the other day that I just love! The idea is that this would be used for a 2 year birthday... but really, you could use this for any occasion.


The second is for the latest Card Patterns sketch. I used the sketch as the inspiration, but I ended up make some adjustments, so it didn't turn out looking as much like the sketch as I had originally planned... but you do what you gotta do. :-) I'm kinda proud of the heart. I cut it out by hand and then covered it with diamond glaze. I wish red was easier to photograph! It's actually a much darker, deeper red.


This one is for this week's UseIt! challenge which required using
a flower (I used a couple of chipboard flowers that I've had for a while), fibers (green ribbon for the leaves), and something metal (I painted a metal frame for the sentiment). The last thing was to use a tool that you haven't used in a while. I didn't really have a tool that I hadn't used... unless you count the paintbrush, because I really never paint anything for a card!

Love your cards! I never would think to paint something for a card- other than waterbrushing an image! Thanks for playing the UseIt Challenge!
