WCMD- Simple krafty snowman

And this was my final (albeit a few days later) WCMD card.  The challenge was to color- definitely something I do a lot of.

The Kraft Journal #193: No patterned paper
The Paper Girls #65: Solid cardstock

WCMD- Starry night Christmas

The challenge was a simple "Christmas card" theme.  I love this stamp (and I'd love to tell you who made it but I haven't a clue) but have struggled to use it a bit.  I decided that it might be kind of neat to make the sky recede a bit more by cutting it out and popping the scene up.  The only thing I'd do different is to add a bit of sparkle to the snow hills. Though it's a bit hard to see in these photos, the paper has a slight silver sparkle to it.  Again, no idea who made it since I picked it up from a discount paper dealer at CKC the other year- NOTHING was labeled.  :)

WCMD- Simple twinkly Halloween card

The colors on this are a bit odd for Halloween but I wanted to color it all using my Twinkling H2Os so I had a limited palette. It may not be overly colorful but it certainly sparkles.  LOL!

Studio Calico #8: Watercolor

WCMD- Fall colored lanterns

This is it before I call it a night.  These may not be overly bright lanterns but I like the more muted quality and think it will be great for a masculine card.

WCMD- Heart is Here card

I have a friend who just dealt with having a melanoma removed and is still waiting for pathology reports to come back.  I thought sending her a card would be a good idea, needless to say.

WCMD- Scrap Kit Hello

This one is definitely a bit out of my norm.  Challenge #6 over at Studio Calico is to use some of an SC kit on a card.  Honestly, I have one SC kit that I won back in 2012 and while I did make a 2pg spread from it, I really haven't found much else to do with it as the style of the kit just isn't what I usually work with.  It has a lot of butterflies, frames, wood and such.  However, I've been wanting to use it and worked well for this challenge, particularly with the Moxie Fab sketch challenge.

All from the April 2012 SC scrapbooking kit with the exception of the Mr. Huey's used on the tag

WCMD- Elephant birthday

Studio Calico's WCMD Challenge #3 was to use one of their digital files on a card.  I have a Silhouette.  I don't use it much.  I need to.  Badly.  I thought this might be a good kick in the tush to get me working with it again so I used the number strip that I found on SC's "sct_summer_2013_cutting_files." I believe it was a freebie they had up last year.

Anniversary Invitations

Well, the invites went out.  A few days late but they went out.  Excuse the Fur-Lump in the 2nd photo.  You know how it goes.  No cat to be seen.  Put something on the floor, try to take a photo, a cat you can't remove from the scene no matter how hard you try.  In the end, you just let them in the photo.
