Card Catch-Up

Over on UKS, I joined in the 52 card challenge, started by Paper&Ribbons, and as with everything, I'm having to play catch up!  Each week, we're given 3 prompts, which we use to achieve either a card, tag or similar project.

One of my new years goals was to join in more challenges, so this sounded just right for me. Well, so far I'm up to week 3 .... weeks 4 & 5 will follow soon (I hope).

Week 1 - Embossing/Lilac/Yellow ... those were the prompts ... and here's the card.



Week 2 - Die Cuts/Stripes/Purple (the die-cut, was from a sheet of old BasicGrey Die cut tags, I found hidden away in my stash)

and then week 3, it was Blue/Flourishes/Hello


This project is also helping me use up all those little bits of papers, that I have saved, knowing they'd one day come in handy.

  1. I love your colour combinations. Do you feel virtuous using up your scraps? It's good to use all those 'one day' bits.

  17. Hi Sandra,
    These are all fabulous. So gorgeous & elegant. I love your style. I see you already found your award, before I got chance to tell you about it. All you need to do is copy & paste it to you computer & then post it on your blog. You don't need to do all the facts, but it would be fun to find out more about you! You can then pass it on to another 8 bloggers as you see fit. It's just a bit of fun! Talking of fun, sounds like you had an amazing weekend. What a fabulous opportunity that I'm sure will live long in your memory.
    Big Hugs,
    Andie xx
