Card Recognition

Sunday, January 16, 2011

for you, celebrate

I'm slowly getting into the grove of things over here, I'm not sure what I was thinking moving countries, starting work, settling children into school and the holidays all in the same month.  So I am excited to be able to revisit some of my favorite card challenges.  I am still working on my photographing, but I'll get there.  I've got two cards here today.  The one of the bottom was the first attempt at this week's Play Date Cafe colors.  Congrats to the new DT!  After I finished that one I still had the pieces floating around so I thought I'd try another take on the same colors, but use ribbon for the Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge.

Having fun I see! Love your cards as usual! After living in NZ, California will be an adjustment, but I know you will make it! Until you adjust, your cards will be your steady! Have a great week!
