3 Cards for Monday...


Good Morning...I have 3 cards to share today and for several challenges, want to be sure I am not late to the parties again.  While my family watched footballs games yesterday I had some quiet time to play in my craft room and this is what I came up with.  My first card is for Festive Friday and this is my very first time playing along. It is a great way to get a head start on your Christmas cards if you play along every time.  I will be entering this card in the current challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch #60.  


Festsive Friday

My second card is for ColourMe #3 and this one was so much fun to make! This was the first time I pulled out Ruby Reprise and I have to be honest with you, I would never have put these colors together but they work, and they look amazing together!


My final card is for Paper Players #179 and the challenge is to make a one layer Valentine's Day card. Had to do a bit of thinking to do this one, I don't usually make one layer cards but once I figured out what to do, it was very quick...gotta love Washi Tape! Thank you so much for taking time to stop by to peek at my cards...have a fabulous week!

  6. Wow, Kim--you were productive yesterday. I love all your cards--have to say that the City Scene has truly stolen my heart, as you know it is one of my favorite sets. But, they are all beautiful and incredible.

  8. Wow in triplicate! Love the scene in your Festive Friday card (the house is so welcoming!); the flowers for the Colour Me entry and the washi wonder in the one-layer card (I so cannot do one layer, but you've inspired me to 'think about' trying). Brilliant, pretty, inspiring! You made excellent use of the 'football' time!

  15. Three cards in one day! You go girl! Fabulous creations, each one so different from the other in color and style! I love the elements that you stamped on the Christmas card - stunning shade of red card stock too :) The soft and subtle colors for the Colour Me Challenge lend themselves perfectly to a sympathy card - love the design layout! The diagonal V-day card - sensational! The washi tape looks awesome! Yep, love the washi tape!
