Card Recognition

sending smiles across the miles



I love color challenges because they push me in new directions... this week's Play Date Cafe colors did not speak to me, I tried this... I tried that... I have a variety of pieces buried in my messy desk... and after a number of failed attemps I decided to play with the Unity trailer I used yesterday and some washi tape..  still not sure what I think of the road's pot holes... but oh well.  Simon Say Stamp Challenge is having a washi tape challenge and I've got some trendy tapes on both of these cards.   Next up I had an extra mini card on the desk (remember I never put anything away, so the pieces just wait for their calling) and I decided to make an itty bitty card for the Moxie Fab World challenge.  After I colored the top of the WMS Frame It cupcakes I added some glossy accents, so it's got a nice bit of texture to it.


And when looking through the messy desk for something to help you get the scale of the card, I pulled out my trusty iphone (for those of you who like the cover I made it on Shutterfly with a photo I'd taken for work).  Now all my card needs is a cupcake to go with it...  anyone want to help me out with that problem?


And come back tomorrow, the May Arts DT is having a blog hop!

If I make cupcakes, I just eat them so it doesn't work out the best. Your cards are a lot of fun!
