I'll bet that you are surprised to see me! I am finally out of hiding. It was a very hectic week and weekend, so today, I went to stamp club (thanks JoAnn for a great project!), got home about 4:00, and have been in my girl cave since!

I'm not sure that I'll ever be able to catch up the challenges that I'm behind on, but you can bet that I'm working hard to try to get them done!

First I have a card for the ABC Challenge. The letter is "C", and we are to make a card with circles. I chose to go with a Halloween card. I stamped my "BOO" letters on black circles with white ink, and then covered them with a clear acrylic circle.

Supplies: DP: Best Creation, Inc., TAC Playful Bet Letters, Jewelry Braiding Cord


For Barb's Macabre Monday Challenge, I offer the following card...

This week's challenge is to use a ghastly little poem or rhyme in your creepy creation. I tried to zoom in to my poem from Macbeth, but I think I only succeeded in crossing everyone's eyes!!!

Supplies: D CS is by Pink Paislee, Sentiment computer generated


For day 188 at 365 Cards, the challenge was "Touchy Feely Friday". We were to add flock, felt, etc., to our cards to make them 'touchy feely'!!! My lil' gal has a fluffy black flock boa! The card is also based on glitter stock, so that's also a 'feely' paper! I covered the white foam flower with glossy accents, so it looks pretty cute IRL.

Supplies: Black Fun Flock, TAC Tickled Pink Image, Tombow Markers, Gelly Roll Glitter Pen, Dazzles flower by Petaloo, Glitter CS by Best Creations, White foam flower from Michael's, Glossy Accents


Day 187 at 365 Cards had a theme of: "Label It". I dug into my old, old, stash, and found a label! The challenge at Pile it On, was Happy Birthday plus one other challenge.

Supplies: Label from stash, DCWV Old World Mat Stack CS, Hero Arts Sentiment, Sara Beise Cupcake.


"Feeling Blue" was the theme for day 185 at 365 Cards. We were to include three shades of blue - done! All supplies were scraps and miscellaneous from my stash or Shirley's! Sentiment is Inkadinkado, and was stamped with Stampin' Up Whisper White.

Hope that you all have a great night. Get some rest!

Thanks for stopping by to look!

Wowza girly you really rocked out some gorgeous cards and fast too! They are all great cards I really like the pink flamingo one. WTG I love the girl cave, maybe I should rename my boring old craft room.

My gosh! Just looking at all the cards you did was astonishing. Especially knowing that they are all challenge cards! Great job! I LOVE the Halloween cards they are my faves, however I REALLY love that flamingo card and all the detail you put into it! That one is fabulous! Best, Curt

Cat said...

Such cute cards! I laughed when you said you were in your girl cave. My husband calls mine the "war room" because when I'm working it looks like a bomb exploded in it! Did I mention, I am NOT a neat crafter. I use every available bit of space.

Carolyn V said...

WOW!! These are all just great, Patti! I especially love the fun Halloween ones (I don't really give Halloween cards, but I love 'em - they're fun!)
