I did a gate fold card because I wanted to send the familt a hug, and what a great way to do that with this fold.The inside reads A Hug is a great gift.One size fits all.It can be given for any occasion and it's easy to exchange.

Hi , These are two more of the card I had made for VSN the one with the pretty ribbon I folded over and sewed a line down the middle.The challenge was to use a score tool to decorate your card. I used my score pal to make this card and put some bling in the middle with a simple picture of DP and a I love you. A silk flower and a brad Took all of about 20 mins to make this card.The next card I not so in like with... I'm just not a all white kind of gal. But that was the challenge. It was called Snow Blind Used a couple of different textured plates and a corner punch and flower , and I called it a card.
Hope to see you tomorrow. Meg

You just have one of those days that you want to just stay in bed or stay at your craft table. The whole day and do nothing but make things and not interact with anyone but yourself? It has been one of those days... The Kids... The Husband.... Well tomorrow is another day,maybe it will be better. Hope your Day is alot better than mine. On to the cards ,this last weekend I made some cards for Easter time a bunny,a bird and a sheep.I really like how all of them turned out.I think I'm gonna put a cotton ball on the bunny tail.

Snakeskin- What a fun thing to do, that I have not done in a long time. I found this blog just hopping around the other night just what I need! I love challenge blogs. This one was to create a card using snakeskin as part of your card. Well at 2:00 in the morning I didn't have all of the right things so I looked around to see what I had and came up with this.I used plastic canvas for mine. and instead of using ink pads I used Adirondack color wash. I really like how it turned out. I just love the Tulip can't wait til spring. I should have taken a close up for all of you it says bloom on the bottom.I really like this set from Brenda Walton this is made by Inkadinkado. Here is the last picture a close up of the snakeskin.

Erin who was in the luge is from my neck of the woods so we have been very excited to watch her. She didn't do as well as excepted but hey how many ou us can say we made the Olympics! This is the card I made today for the challenge on SCS I really enjoyed the sketch. Roxy does such a great job with the weekly sketch over there. I used Bazzill and Gina K card stock.
