It's a dreary cold winter's day and what better way to spend it than making cards for a couple of fun challenges. My first card is for Double D Challenges which is celebrating their sixth birthday/anniversary. The challenge theme is balloons (no hot air balloons either). I used my Silhouette Cameo to create the balloon and die cut sentiment. The stamped sentiment is by Gina K Designs from an older set in my stash.
My second card I did for Mod Squad Challenge which wants you to create a handmade background focal. I used an older Gina K Designs stamps set called Dogwoods and Butterflies. I stamped a dogwood branch background on pink cardstock for my handmade focal. I'm very happy with the way this one turned out. I try to keep several sympathy cards made in advance. Hope you are staying warm and enjoying lots of crafty time. Must dash as it is time for my afternoon tea and biscotti. (Wink.) Challenges entered below:
