My Mom's cards for the 10 for 1

Here are my Mom's cards, for some reason I could not add them to the previous post so here they are. Didn't she make some great cards for her first time trying?

10 for 1 challenge

Wow!!! I did not think that we would get through this one. Korin asked if anyone would try the 10 for 1 templates and I thought it would be fun to introduce my mom to making cards while she was here for a visit. I thought it would give us something to do while my DD is napping. Boy it took a little longer than I anticipated but it sure was fun. We each made 10 different cards each. They do not match exactly but they turned out great for the paper we each chose. The challenge was to use four different pieces of paper, follow the template and make ten cards. We did it!!! and here are our cards, my mom started with christmas paper but made several different types of cards and I needed to make several thank you cards but ended up with some great aniversary or valentines day cards as well. So much fun!

These are my cards and the next post will have my moms cards ;-)

Well I did it... My mom is here visiting us and so just have not had all that much time but got to show my mom how easy it is to make a card using this challenge, thanks Beate! I was having trouble coming up with a design to make a congrats welcome Baby type card for my coworker. But this challenge really helped me along. She is not finding out what she is having, at least at this time, and so just wanted a simple neutral card. I could not come up with the box in the center but kinda faked it with the corner pieces, hope it still counts!

My first Christmas Card

Well, I got my Make a wish Stamp set from Gina K Designs and since I won a lot of Christmas paper from Ammie that I would make my first Christmas Card and I think it is OK, but maybe missing something. I may try a little more later, but my husband just got home and I need to get moving on the dinner idea.

My first RAK

Pieces of Me holds a monthly RAK club and I thought I would give it a shot. Well look what I got, I just cannot believe the generosity! They are just beautiful.

Phoebe made the first card and I love it. The second card came from hulahlah Paper Company. Both are so amazing.

Fresh and Fun Weekend Sketch Challenge #15

This was an easy one that I really enjoyed, although I have not added the sentiment yet because I am not sure who it is going to go to. It will be in the lower right hand corner of the card. I am not sure who the paper is made by as I just received it as part of the blog candy that I won from Amy. I was so amazed at how much paper she sent me and I love all of it! Such a happy day ;-)

Fresh and Fun Weekend Sketch Challenge #14

This is my card for this past weekends sketch challenge that Beate does. I love this challenge and really enjoyed making this card...

Not sure where all the paper came from or where the brads came from but the ribbon is from Making Memories - a recent purchase while camping this past weekend.

Fresh and Fun Weekend Sketch Challenge #13

Well, I will share both attempts for this challenge. It is a great sketch but I am not sure that I am all that happy with how either card turned out. I may have to try a third time but we are heading out today to do some camping so these will have to do for now!

My first attempt - I don't know what it is about this card but I just am not to sure about it.

My second attempt - I like this card a lot better but still think I should have done something different but cannot put my finger on what I should have done differently...

Thanks for checking and have a great weekend!
