Day 179 at 365 cards is all about Checkerboards. I loved to play when I was younger. We would play for hours. Then we got into Chinese checkers....way different but lots of fun. I wish my friends and family were into board games. We mostly play cards and we are all addicted to e-games. Have a great day!

Day 178 on 365 cards was to make a card with a Back to School theme. I made an iris folded green apple (love those Granny Smith's) using paper from the Circle of Crafter's website. I used stickers that I had laying around. It looks like it needs something more. I haven't done any iris folding in awhile so it seemed like that consumed alot of time on this card. I guess I'm going to have to start doing more of them. The Circle of Crafter's website is wonderful if you want to start iris folding or teabag folding.

This completes 2 challenges, a sketch for Mojo Monday's Tuesday card and 365 cards Day 172 using ABC's and 123's. I used stickers for the letters but had to stamp the #8. I used CTMH paper, CTMH "The Works" alphabet for the #8 and the flower, and some jute I had hanging around. Mojo Monday blogspot is celebrating #100 so they are doing cards all week, check them out.

Here's my take on Day 171 at 365 cards. We needed to have a triangle (my sign), a button, (on the end of the sign), and a sticker (the shells, seahorses and some of the fish.) As you can see one fish is heading AWAY from school. The sentiment on the inside says "You're one of a kind." Don't forget to scroll down and check out my blog candy. Just think of a name for my new male parakeet and you can win a Tickled Pink stamp set.

Thanks! I will be doing another giveaway this week. I bought a male parakeet and would like to have a contest for naming him. More details to follow.

This is my take on Day 167 at 365 cards. We had to make a card that looked like a present. My tag has glitter around the "flap" part and also on the little hearts at the bottom although it didn't scan well. This card was fun. I may have to make some more. Don't forget to put a comment in under my blog candy offer....scroll down. I will be drawing a name this Sunday.

This is my take on Day 166 at 365 cards. The recipe called for 5 flowers, 3 different kinds of patterned paper, wet embossed sentiment and glitter on a 4x7 card. Phew! The paper is CTMH Floral Tapestry. The white flower is CTMH. The middle has green glitter on it. The purple flowers are from Joann Fabrics. The sentiment is from CTMH. My embossing did not come out well. I think I should have used a chunkier style stamp. I kinda like these 3 papers together. Sign up for blog candy below my star card....scroll down. I will be drawing this Sunday night. Thanks to everyone for the nice comments you have left me.

This is my take on Day 165 at 365 cards. The stars are from CTMH "Out West" and "Words to Live by." The "legs" are from "Alien" from Memory Box and the Sentiment is from Stamp Oasis. I colored the legs and shoes with Copic Markers. The colors really washed out during the scan. The star colors are almost neon! I just had a thought....I should have put little google eyes on the big stars :D

This is my take on Day 161 on 365 cards. We were supposed to have a collage effect, patterned paper, no blank spots. The papers, die cut flower and buckle are from the CTMH tickled pink kit. The ribbon is by Offray. The paper has sparkles on it (the paper came that way.) It's much prettier than is scans.

Okay, this was a tough one and I almost didn't "play." The challenge on 365 cards was to make an indoor scene. I had nothing to work with...pondered it all day and finally decided to check out some clip art. I found the cradle, colored it with copic markers, used CTMH stamps for the balls, the duck the picture frame and the flower. I had some paper that looked like flooring and found some pink for the wall paper. I guess it wasn't so bad after all, I kinda like the way it turned out.

Okay, so at 365 cards the challenge was to make a card with a sign. The snowman went together well until the end when I blobbed ink on the card making his stick arm. So then I made the garden card using a little wooden sign I had that I colored and stamped. Then it happened again....I blobbed ink again on one of the tall flowers and in the sky. I should have had the Margarita BEFORE I made the cards huh? Having the wooden sign on the scanner also made the flowers in back of the sign look blurred. Oh well....hope everyone else's day went better.

This is my take on Day 157 for 365 cards. It is tea bag folding. The paper squares are from http://www.circleofcrafters.com. The corner pieces are from the Dollar Store, the sentiment is from CTMH, the green background paper and the brown brad are from Joann Fabrics. The background on the green paper is Fiskars Lace plate that I rubbed on.

This is for Day 156 on 365 cards. It is an ad inspired card. You can see the pic if you go to http://365cards.blogspot.com
I am not yet savy enough to put it on my site. I'm lucky I can now run the scanner. LOL You can't see it in the pic but I ran my Kraft paper through the Cuttlebug using the Fiskars basket weave plate. The green cardstock is CTMH as well as the stamps. The brads are something from Joann Fabrics. It's hard to see the "drawers" are partitioned off side by side.

Here is my take on Day 154 at 365 cards. It was planes, trains and automobiles. I love my orange cones, but the yellow caution signs didn't really show up in the scan as well as they do on the card. I am all caught up for the week! Yea! I can't wait to see what next week brings.
