Last Minute Inspiration

Just thought I'd post a few more cards here for you to see what I've been up to and to hopefully give you a last minute push to get some cards in for the challenge this month.  I was busy a couple of days ago, but wanted a few minutes of creative time, so I decided to practice what I preach in all my classes - if you're going to make one card, it's just as easy to make 2 or 3 when everything is out anyway!

I used the challenge and did square cards and then add lots of glitter and gems to them.  I know you can't see the glitter in the top ones, but I added it to the patterned paper as I did in the second ones as well as on the snowflakes.  The top cards were new paper from Imaginisce and the bottom ones were some fun leftovers of last year's Bo Bunny that I hadn't used.  None of these were particularly hard or time consuming, so get that card mojo moving and create some more cards before the end of the month!

Keep your eye out for a new challenge next Friday too!

September Challenge!!!

Hi Everyone!  Christmas is just 4 months away...are you ready yet????

The September challenge is going to be a card that is any shape other than the standard 4 1/4 X 5 1/2. It can be suare, rectangular, curcular, big, small, whatever, but not the standard size. You card must also have gold, silver, crytal or pearl on it somewhere as well!

Check out these wonderful creations from our Design Team:


*Remember if you do 5 cards this month following the challenge, your name will go into a draw for a prize at the end of SEPTEMBER! (this challenge CAN be combined with any other blog or forum challenges that you do this month.)

This month the RAK is another great set from SU!

Please upload your cards to your blog, a gallery, or photobucket and remember to give us the EXACT links to see them. You can do 5 of the same cards or 5 different ones (as long as they follow the current challenge) If you do 5 of the same, please show us a picture of them altogether. Thanks!

***Also, if at least 20 people create 5 cards I will pick a second winner!***

We can't wait and see what you create this month! Have fun!
