Wild colours for me

Hi fellow bloggers. Hope you are having a fantastic day. Thanks for dropping in to see what I am up to.

Yesterday I was visiting with a couple of friends and we were putting our heads together about blogging. While chatting I was told about this challenge for a card using yellow, fuschia and black.

I came home and started a card....then tried another one....well you know how it goes. LOL This was a real challenge out of my comfort zone but I was not going to give up.

This is what I came up with.....

My Red Card

Hello and thank all of you that have dropped in for a peek into my stamping room..... I love to know when you have come for a visit so please leave me a comment if you can.

Why don't you click on the "join this site" button so you will always know what I am up to.

Now, todays card is one that I am going to use to start back into the challenges. One challenge wants us to use something at least 6 months old soooo I used my poppy background stamp from Stampin Up and my dies must be a few years old and my background stamp is 2 years old......boy I think this card has everything old except the verse which is only a couple of months old.

The layout for this card is one that was provided by a friend of mine at home for our own friendly challenge.
I used Real Red, Basic Black and white card stock. I don't have many embellishments down here with me sooo I used a punch to make the little dots in the upper left corner instead of buttons. 

Thanks again for peeking in and I hope you like my little creation and will come back soon.

I am entering this card into these challenges:

A simple layout

Good morning to all of you that have popped in for a peek.

Today, as promised, I am showing you another card that I did for a challenge between a group of very dear friends at home. It helps to keep me connected with them while I am away.

We each take turns finding or creating a layout for us to make a card from, then we see how many different cards we can make using this layout.

Last weeks layout was a quick and easy one and fun to work with. I don't know where Karen got it from, it could have been her own design or something she had seen out there on the web. It was 3 squares across the bottom with a strip just above these and then a circle or square at the top.

This is the second card I came up with. You can see the first card by clicking here.

For this card I used a white card base then embossed a mat of Pacific Point from Stampin Up using their tulip folder. Instead of a ribbon or plain strip of card stock I punched a pretty decorative edge of white. The 3 squares across the bottom are from an old discontinued package of Stampin Up that matched the Pacific Point colour very well.

I love the verse on this one. I happened to pick it up at a garage sale down here this winter.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and come back soon for a visit.

1 year to this date

Hello out there in the blogging world. It has been exactly one year since since I have posted anything and I am thinking I need to get back into the swing of things.

Today I am going to show you a card that I whipped up as soon as I got home from a shopping trip with my sister.  It's for a challenge with a group of my friends at home that we do each week to keep connected while I am away for the winter. I hope you enjoy it.

Come back tomorrow to see my second entry for that week.
