>>> 365 Cards! <<<

Finally caught up with this week's challenges. Perhaps the cold and dismal weather here helped as I had no intention of going out at all! So spent the day crafting in my room while the kids went out shopping with their dad. So without further ado, here's this week challenges, with the majority of them in a Xmas theme! Had to take these photos at nite so apologies if the images aren't perfect.

Day 266: Colour Me This
The challlenge is to colour in an image not using markers especially of the alcoholic ones. So I turned to my watercolour pencils instead.

Played with this newly acquired image by Unity (which will be replicated in quite a few cards). And couldn't resist using my new Martha Stewart crown border punch! Luv the effect!

Day 265: Simply Put
This challenge asked for 1 piece of patterned paper, 1 embellishment and 1 sentiment! Here's mine:

The sentiment reads 'Season's Greetings' which is quite faint in the photo.

Day 264: Keep It To Yourself
The challenge is to to design a congratulatory card that uses decorations on the outside of the card to help convey the message on the inside of the card. The only non-Xmassy card but had to do this for a friend who is expecting a boy soon:

Inside reads 'Congrats'
Stamped images by Unity.

Day 263: Ad Inspired
Create a card based on this Ad:

Here's mine:

Dusted off my sewing machine and added a stitched border. Stamped image by Unity (again!)

Day 262: Colour Scheme
This is the colour scheme:

Here's my card based on it:

Took me a while to sort out the colour scheme but luv the overall effect!

Day 261: Card Recipe
The challenge is to follow this recipe:
4x4 Card
Red Background
Snowflakes (pattern, embellishments, any #, and any variety)
1 ribbon
stamped sentiment

Here's mine:

My sentiment is the stamped circle around the snowflake. It reads 'winter wonderland'.

Day 260: Super Sketchy Sunday
Here's the sketch:

And here's my take on it:

Looking at the sketch again, can't think why I had another sheet of paper on the bottom half??? Well, it was late when I did this!

Quite pleased I added more Xmas cards to my collection although I have a sneaky feeling it won't be enough!!! TTFN!

You are amazing with challenges Audrey! I always tend to fumble with them. Love all the cards you made - gorgeous!
We're having the usual monsoon season now, lots of rain and gloomy weather as well. Saw in the papers that England had some bad flooding in the west, hope you're doing ok at your side. :)
