I am including this card in two challenges
Whimsy Stamps Challenges, touchy feely-This lovely large flower has plenty of texture and really stands out on this card. I have had this flower for quite a while but I think was too afraid to use it before this
All these cards are being included in the Crafty Creations #31 challenge-3 or more patterned papers http://craftycreationschallenges.blogspot.com/ , I am so happy that I was able to make the patch work card combinging so many bright and happy papers. These were all scraps as well which definitely came into good use.
Pile it on,Birthdays-The patch work card can be included in the birthday challenge card athttp://pileitonchallenge.blogspot.com/ and also can be included in the shape punches challenge over at http://practicalscrappers.blogspot.com/
Tuesday Taggers, buttons and bows- on my "Every bad day comes out in the wash I have included a button and bow. I have to admit I am really happy with the way this card turned out, it really does make me feel happy and gives me a positive spin on the every day especially bad days http://tuesdaytaggers.blogspot.com/
Ok, I fully admit it as this is my blog and so to a point I should be able to say whats on my mind. I haven't been overly happy of late about things and to tell you the truth I haven't had the energy to do work on scrapbooking LO's this has definitely made me focus on cards which I seem to have done a lot of off late. I hope to get back into scrapbooking soon but until then I am just happy to be creating and making a heap of cards which I am sure will come in handy later on. I have made three cards in the last few days two of which I am very happy with as they turned out just the way I wanted them to but the third card "Just be happy" was a just having fun card. It's meant to be a bright and happy card that really doesn't have too much more to it, it reminds of me of what I used to make when I was younger, everything had to have something big on it and everything had to include a smiley, lets hope I don't get too much back into this phase anytime soon:)
