First, I hope I did not offend anyone with my last post but I just couldn't believe what my doggie and pussy cat did! I missed the 52 Card challenge last week with their sketch so I combined last week with this week's challenge and made the card traditional with the colour combo. Craft Your Passion is right up my alley since my name starts with a B (and no not that B but at times I can be one:)). The first card has a bow and a bird and the last card has blue! I LOVE blue. I rarely use patterned paper so Christmas cards All Year Round has a great challenge for me. Most of my cards are flat since I do still mail cards (nope not e-mail, actual mail). I am into Snowmen recently...um, that didn't sound right and they are a bit cold for my taste. Now I saw a beautiful card done by a fellow crafter, Bekka, who created a snowman card using the same stamp! I think she does an amazing job and you should check her cards out. I actually stole, um, I mean lifted...nope, I mean paid homage by creating a similar vibe with my snowman but I love hers so much better. If you can, too, she created a wondrous card and story about abuse a couple of weeks back. I hope Bekka doesn't mind me gushing about her here.
I do believe I write the way I talk which is scary! Whatever comes into my little head plops down on the page like mashed potatoes.
