Pallenge #9 Use Your Patterned Paper

Better late than never, right? Here is my contribution to the Papertrey Pals Pallenge #9 issued by Nadine. I actually made these cards a while back (notice the "happy easter") but never got around to posting them. I attend a CTMH scrap club once a month. The paper used on these cards are the scraps from club. All the stamps are Papertrey.

Pallenge #12 Christmas in (almost) July

Hi there! It is my turn to post a challenge over at the Papertrey PALs blog. Did you realize there are less than 6 months til Christmas??? Probably the last thing you want to think about are making your Christmas cards. I am getting ready to move from Spain to California this August and am worried with getting settled in and starting a new job my card making may be taking a back seat. So, while I sit here in my empty house (we have loaner furniture since our stuff was packed up earlier this month) with my limited craft supplies I have been cranking out Christmas cards with a couple of friends. Here is a sampling of what I have made.

This first card is a CASE of Betsy Veldman's card here. Scroll down to her last card on that post.

This next one is a CASE of Debbie Olson's card here.

Here is one that I came up with on my own:

And lastly, here is one using vintage ornaments. I CASEd from Dawn McVey's card here.

Go on over to the Papertrey PALs blog and play along!

Pallenge #11 Red, White, and Blue & Stars

Over at the Papertrey Pals blog Ingrid issued a patriotic challenge. We were to use red, white, and blue along with stars. My card is a bit different than the traditional colors only because most of my supplies are in a crate on a ship somewhere between Spain and California. We packed out our household goods on the 7th of this month. Luckily, I had kept vintage picnic to work on Thanksgiving cards so I had something to work with.

Here is my card. A bit simple. You can barely see it but I used the Picnic Plaid impression plate on the kraft cardstock:
Thanks for stopping by! It is my turn to issue the next challenge tomorrow.
