Gloomy doomy rainy day...

It's dark and gloomy here right now, and it is making me sleepy!

Just thought I'd take a few minutes away from monthly reports to post a few quick cards! These were all done VERY quickly!

Melisa Waldorf's challenge this week was to use fun flock! My first card uses white fun flock on the cupcake, and the red glitz is done with red stickles (thanks Shirley!). All stamps are from TAC.

Lisa's challenge this week was to find a tool that we haven't used in ages and make a card with it. I was literally perusing my 'tools' when I thought...AHA! I have not used a sticker in so long that I can't remember the last time I used one! unused tool is "stickers"! All stickers are from Karen Foster Designs.

The challenge at 365 Cards yesterday was to use the prase "You can do it". Unfortunately, I didn't have any stamps that said that, so I went to my trusty word program and printed it out on Kraft cardstock. The stamps are TAC, and the paper is from Old World Mat Stack. (I haven't had the courage to go to 365 yet today to see what the challenge is - lol!!!)

Just a reminder that Gina K. Designs is releasing several new WONDERFUL stamp sets tonight! They have been giving us sneek peeks all week long - can't wait to see the whole sets!!! Hope to see you at the release party!

So....I guess my break is over! Hope you are all having a fantabulous day and dodging the raindrops!

Amen Sister on your quote of the day!

Hey there! I've missed you! It's been Stamp Club and Blog Hop week for me, so I'm behind in my email and blog surfing. I will definitely be at the release party tonight, although they go so fast, I don't do much but check in periodically and wait to see the full reveals. Can't wait! I love Gina K.

Look at you on a roll with three challenges in one day! I love all your cards, Patti. I can hardly tell those are stickers on the Christmas card. And the angel card is really special, too. I love angels because my mama is one.

Love and hugs,

Cat said...

Wow! Great job on all of your cards! The Fun Flock looks great!I just bought some Fun Flock, but haven't used it yet. I'll have to give it a try. How clever to use stickers as a tool! I didn't even think of that! I have a ton that are gathering dust! I really need to start scrapbooking again and use some of those suckers up!
