OWH Mid Week Throw Down

This week's challenge from OWH is Let Your Light Shine!  What does that mean? It means cards that incorporates light, such a a lamp, the sun, a light bulb, a lighthouse, a full moon, etc.

Here is my version:
I made a bunch of these for the box that I shipped to OWH this morning.  Of course I didn't take pictures, had to make another, and my placement of the bulb wasn't quite right this time... 

Don't forget - only a few more days to enter the Olympic Colours Challenge over Words 2 Scrap By!!

OWH Mid Week Throw Down - So Punny!!!

The OWH Mid Week Throw Down is to create a "punny" card.  Not really my style, I guess I have not figured out how to include humor in my cardmaking.  But that is what these challenges are about, right?  Stretching our skills and styles?!?!? 

Here is my effort:

Hero Arts fundraiser image and sentiment.  Doodle Pantry Day to Day designer paper.  Darice clouds embossing folder.  Stash ribbon and stars. 

One more week to participate in the Words 2 Scrap By Olympic Challenge!!!

Shopping Our Stash #138 - Oh, Shiny!!

This week's challenge over at Shopping Our Stash is Oh, Shiny!

A year or so ago, I bought a ton of this shiny card stock for next to nothing.   I love how it looks when embossed with a diamond plate folder.  Makes a nice masculine card.  Operation Write Home is always in need of masculine cards, so I made a bunch of these:

It is such a challenge to photograph reflective surfaces!!!  Old All Night Media sentiment.  Cuttlebug embossing folder.

OWH Our Daily Bread Challenge - Brown

Our Daily Bread Designs sponsors a monthly challenge, and the winners are our heroes.  They donate the shipping for two boxes of cards.  Thank you, ODBD!  This month's challenge is to make a card using the color brown.  Here is mine:

I am really on the fence about this year's Super Bowl.  As a lifetime Cleveland Browns fan, rooting for Denver goes against every fiber of my being.  I love pulling for the underdog, and Seattle (nor any of the players) has ever even been to the Super Bowl.  But then again, I would love to see Manning win another ring.  Bottom line?  I went with the team that I had paper to answer the challenge!!!  Thus:
DCWV Teenage Dream paper, Fiskars sentiment. Check out the February Challenge over at Words 2 Scrap By  - Colours of the World - the Olympic flag!!!
