Card Reveal

Each month, four of us participate in a swap.  We each take turns sending out a kit-of-the-month to the other gals and then we reveal our creations on a specific date.  This month, it was my turn to send out the kit.  I had such great ideas in my head, but it didn't turn out like I imagined.  Here is what everyone received.  Everyone also received a piece of twine.  I forgot to include it in this image.  All the patterned papers are from Jilly Bean and the stamped images are from Unity.

Anyway, here is what I created.

On the card, I tried a new technique I saw on Pinterest.  If I was a good blogger, I would include the link for you, but I just discovered that I am not a very good pinner either because I forgot to pin it!  Since I ran out of room, the greeting is on the inside of the card.  It reads, "A basket full of Wishes."  If you would like to see what the others created, please follow the links below.  I am sure these ladies created something amazing!  They are a super talented group of gals.


Thanks for looking!

April Kit

Here is an image for our kit.  I hope you found something that spurred your creativity.  Each of you did get different colors of crochet flowers, so I hope that is OK. 

I can't wait to see what you create!

April Christmas Card Challenge

No, I am not April fooling either!  LOL  I set a goal at the beginning of the year to work on my Christmas cards every month and so far, I have stuck to it!  I have not counted, but I know I have at least 20 cards done!!!

Anyway, this challenge will be posted over at Scrappin' Mojo if you would like to play along.  Everyone there is super nice and really is very creative.  It is like one of those best kept secrets.  hahaha

This challenge is to create a card or a layout with a multiple of three.  I used three squares for my card.
You could use three flowers, buttons, different PPs or just whatever you like as long as something is a multiple of three.

Here is my example.

Yes, I need to work on my photography skills.  Here is a close up.

Thanks for looking and I hope you play along!
