House of cards...

Above is my latest Card A Day.

Of course I love the pink and green and it is based on a sketch I need to find the information for (to post here), but I didn't have a sentiment picked out originally so it went through two attempts before this one. I like this one the best. I actually found some puffy candy stickers among some old supplies. I haven't used stickers on a card in awhile!

I have been keeping my focus on cards lately but need to also do some scrapbook projects.

I received my first Studio Calico card kit this month - Sock Hop. Photo below. I made a few cards and love all the pieces but I haven't even come close to using everything that was in the kit. I think that means it was a good deal after all! :-) Even though it is a card kit, I plan to make mini books with future kits. We will see how that works out.

 Cards Made with the Kit {so far...}

Toward the end I started using a stamp that wasn't in the kit and different ribbon/thread. I am a wee bit mad at myself though because I have misplaced one of the stamps from the kit! So much for "cleaning up" my crafting surface the other day. ;-)

I had to stop my Unity Stamp of the Week membership. Cutting expenses. BUT I will still be getting their two monthly kits - Kit of the Month and S.W.A.K., so that is some consolation. Although I may need to stop the S.W.A.K. kit as well. I still have a TON of stamps from Unity and they have some of my favorite designs so I hope I won't be too sad about the loss of Stamp of the Week for too long. ;)

OWH card design focus is now on Valentine's Day, so I should be making lots of LOVE theme cards. My goal is to have a hundred cards to send by December 1. Time is flying by fast this holiday season! :)

Below are some of the other Card A Day designs since my last post (Day 60).

Thanks for visiting the blog!

Happy Creating!
