February Challenges

I did not do so well this month on my challenges. I really did not feel very scrappy so I didn't sit down and work as often as I should have. We are also getting our house ready to sell so that really has taken a lot of my time. That's ok though, I will make new challenges for March and work very hard on accomplishing them! =~)

Simple birthday

This is a very simple card I made for Jim's cousin. I just loved the colors and the simplicity of it all. The image is one I got from a stamped image swap, colored with the MCPT (Magic Colored Pencil Technique). The 2 background papers are from DCWV mat stacks, and the flower is Prima. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up - Short and Sweet set.

To follow the rules of this award I am giving this to the following 7 blogs. Please visit them and see how amazingly creative all these ladies are.

February Personal Challenges

These are my challenges for February. I haven't really started on anything other than updating my blog. I need to just force myself to sit down and knock a few of these out. Once I start it should be easier to keep going. Right now just getting started is the biggest challenge of all.

10 LO's
Update my blog regularly
Use my Cuttlebug Build a Flower, butterfly and heart cut and emboss sets

A Graduation Card

I know it is a bit early for graduation season but I wanted to get a head start. This image was sent to me as part of a stamped image swap. I colored it with MCPT. These stamps are so simple and easy to color, it really takes just a couple of minutes to finish. I mounted the image with pop dots and used ribbon from my stash. It is hard to see, but there are 3 bows on the ribbon.

Daddy's Girls

The sun (hard to see in this pic) is from Calligraphy Collection. I absolutely love this cart for all the extras it has on it. The font is Cuttin' Up, using the Cartoon feature.
The background papers are just various ones from my stash.

Battleship LO

Here is one of the LO's I completed for my January Personal Challenge. Although it is hard to see I used Stickles on the anchor, which is from Going Places. The letters are done with Cuttin' Up, which is becoming my new favorite font. The top and bottom borders are done with the SU Scalllop border punch and Stickles.
