I {heart} Trees…

Update… I totally forgot to mention which challenges I am entering this in.  I used both the Sweet Sunday #16 sketch and CPS Challenge sketch combined into one.  I was inspired by Lucy, England too. Here is the link to her card http://www.flickr.com/photos/30551735@N05/3460010064/ and submitted it to the Hero Arts Blog challenge as well.  This was a full combined effort for a card.  I love how it turned out though.  Amazing how so many different inspirations can go into just one little card. I didn’t use an owl, shocker I know.  It was hard, but my owls are tired and …

Thinking of you…

I decided to try my hand at a Cuttlebug Challenge inspired by Jennier McGuire this week.  I really thought this is going to be easy and had an idea in my mind.  It did not go the way I had planned.

Happy National Scrapbook Day!!!

Happy National Scrapbook Day!  Did you know or have you been planning for weeks on what you will be working on? I am hoping to be able to devote some time to card making today.

I have lots of ideas in my head …

Owl Grad

This is a last minute entry for the Caardvarks tree-themed card challenge.  I had some leftover papers from the Dollar Spot paper pack that had some trees!!!  My sister is graduating from college next month and thought an owl would be fitting! I have a bad habit of not finishing the inside of the card and figure I’d get to it later.  Most often it does not happen.  So my new goal is to make sure the inside is done as well.
