Christmas Cards All Year 'Round - January 2010

I made 5 cards to enter the challenge at the Christmas Cards All Year 'Round with the freebie image "Fallin' In Love" from the Delightful Inspiration. Today is the last day of this challenge for January 2010. I MADE IT!

This is a good challenge to keep up the Christmas spirit all year 'round and get ready Christmas cards when the time comes for OWH.

Fallin' In Love

Whew~ This week has been so busy. I haven't had enough time to catch up everything and I must have missed a lot.

Anyway, I didn't want to miss the January FREE Stamp Week #4 Challenge at the Delightful Inspiration so I made this card while David is waiting for our Sunday brunch. I used the sketch from the Stamping 411 to enter their Saturday Sketch Challenge 136 as well.

Thanks for freebie image and challenges.

Wish everyone a nice Sunday!

Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #1

I made this card for Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #1. This is a new Challenge Blog of the Operation Wrtie Home. I am so excited to participating in this challenge.

This is the sketch and what Sandy said: You can use this as-is, tweak it, turn it sideways, layer like mad if you wish—it's an idea-starter! Bonus applause for you if you incorporate a star into the card, in honor of our new blog's name!

I used a freebie digital stamp from Karen Johnson of Karen's Doodles.

Thanks for the challenge and inspiration.

Puppy Love

I made this card for the following challenges:

* Delightful Inspiration - by using this image "Puppy Love"
This is a different way of play along with challenges. Everyone that plays gets FREE digital stamps! For more detailed information, please visit the site.

* Unscripted Sketches #39



I made this card for two Michelle Perkett challenges for:

* Weekend Challenge "Under the Sea" Theme on PCP

* Challenge 13 - Be Inspired on her challenge blog

The image is a new release by Michelle Perkett. I love her images and enjoy coloring them although I don't have the right color of skin tone. Besides, it shows darker and more pinkish in the photo.

Thanks for challenges and inspiration.

Operation Write Home Challenges

I copied this from the Operation Write Home Homefront Blog post.

"...... So for those who need a "goal" to set in front of them, here are a few ideas:

1.Missing My Kids: Create 20 missing-you cards appropriate to send to children and mail them to a shipper by Jan 31.
2.Seventeen Green: Create 3 St Patrick's and 17 Thinking of you cards (since it's 3/17) and get them to your shipper by Jan 31 - beat that Feb deadline so we can get some boxes out early for the holiday! (Lots of folks have been mailing well past our deadlines - help a shipper out by being early!)

3.TwentyTen challenge: A bigger challenge that could last you all through 2010! One month you make and send in at least 20 cards, the next 10 cards, the next 20, and so on. It's small goals that can keep us moving!"

I love you

This card is for Patti, my dear friend, who is hosting the Magical Monday - Color Challenge with a Painted Pony Image. I hope she likes it.

Thanks for the challenges!

Thinking of You

I made this card for the following challenges in mind:

* Mojo Monday Week 120 - Sketch

* Copic Buzz Challenge #24 by using Cute Daisy May Digi Stamp and Ribbon

* The Color Dare CD 50 - Ruby Red, Creamy Caramel, Bermuda Bay

I think I could use a different sentiment such as Love or Happy Birthday as well for this card. I enjoyed making this card.

Thanks for the challenges!

Make a Wish

I made this card for my nephew Jared's birthday and for the following two challenges:

* Mojo Monday Week 119
* There's Magic In The Air

For a few days of holidays, I enjoyed playing with challenges that gave me a lot of inspiration for making cards for heroes in the near future such as Love, Birthday and Thinking of You cards. These are going to be perfect sample cards for my Card Making Club at work. Great! Thanks very much!

Love Cat

This card is for the Cute Card Thursday sketch challenge that Alison of Strech N' Bubbles is sponsoring.
