Just a quick post this morning before I run off to work – I have one final entry for the Passion for Papertrey scrap challenge. I had such high hopes that this challenge would motivate me to further deplete my scrap box — it did help considerably, but unfortunately life got in the way this past week in a big way and card making had to take a back seat. Oh well, still managed a few creations…
Thanks for visiting! Hopefully back a little more often this week!
Paper: card blank (Woodware); patterned paper & cardstock (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps: vase, flowers and sentiments from Asian Fusion (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: white, brown (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories: buttons (Woodware), Stickles, ribbon (Papertrey Ink), corner chomper
Well, it has been a seriously crazy week at work, so my hour of card making last night felt like a real treat (first chance this week!). Just heading out to see the Christmas spectacle on Oxford Street, but thought I would share this cute little reindeer before heading out. The card is for the Case Study Challenge #16 — Heather’s last card as muse for the challenge – her work is amazing. The card is also for the There She Goes color challenge 82. Here is the great holiday palette they’ve chosen:
Accessories: Flourish and black gems (Prima), foam adhesive
Wee Memories, one of my favourite blogs for inspiration, challenges and more is celebrating reaching 700 followers with a big giveaway. Hopefully I can one day aspire to the same amount of followers — only 685 to go!
Anyway, here is the amazing prize:
Fingers crossed I may win some of this goodness!
Busy weekend coming up – in-laws in town and a wedding, so back next week!
Back again for some more holiday fun.
This card is for the CASE Study Challenge #14 – taking another stab on the rectangular card format. I had tons of fun going through my scrap pile of patterned paper to finish off this card – with that in mind, I have also decided to enter it in the Wee Memories Challenge #31 (using patterned paper) and the Passion for Papertrey challenge (using scraps).
The Passion for Papertrey couldn’t be more perfect for me at the moment – I have made a commitment to make cards only with my scrap bin (which is overflowing) – I think I may have to warn them about the number of cards I plan on submitting to this challenge! Trying to clear some space for the suitcase full of supplies I’m hoping to bring back to London after a holiday in the states in December!
Without further ado, here is today’s card (the one with the pearl is the finished product, the picture on the right is a little better (pre-pearl!):
I was very excited to participate in the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger, but just realized I missed the deadline! Oh well – it still inspired the fall colors in my card today. The layout was inpsired by the current Case Study Challenge. I love Heather’s cards and was happy to change from my standard A2 format to try something a bit different.
The leaves didn’t stamp very evenly, but I’m still happy with the look – a little ghost-like – reminds me of those last days of autumn before the leaves fall.
Thanks for visiting – and come back tomorrow – I have another fun card to share for the CASE card challenge!
Paper: cardstock (Papertrey Ink)
Stamp: large leaf sprig from Turning a New Leaf (Papertrey Ink), sentiment for Mazel Tov (Papertrey Ink), woodgrain backgroung (Hero Arts)

I don’t make a lot of Christmas card, but I love this holiday sentiment set from Hero Arts. This card was so simple and quick! I am going to enter it in the Paper Crafts Holiday Card challenge for November.
That’s all for today – busy weekend & unfortunately not much time for card making!
