Paper Hugs and Die Cut Dreams

A bunch of cards...

and I have to tell you I am not in love with any of them. My mojo is just not working very well tonight, but they're not bad, but all quite simple and cute. I am just not thinking "spectacular" today. But since I know we are all our own worst critics and I don't HATE them...here they are! And to my surprise, some of them are one challenge cards.




This first one is for 365 Cards - they asked for veggies on a card. My only salvation on this one is I went to the stamp store today and asked "do you have any paper with vegetables on it?" and this is why I got! It's by Flair Designs and I really do think this one came out pretty cute. This is also an anniversary card - which was requested by If the Shoe Fits. I forgot to take the photo of the inside, which says "Anniversary Wishes". (One of my Verve sets!) And of course this one also works for the PILE IT ON Challenge - as it has a Non-Stamped Sentiment!


This one is for Lesley! She challenged me to do the Color Challenge over at SCS this week. It was a one layer white card. You were allowed to use ONE other color and no other colored cardstock. This is the one that really reminds me that I am not a stamper! It's really all purple, although I think the ribbon kind of looks black. It's really a true purple. (And Lesley - I want you to know this is like the 6th variation - I won't mention the one that I was almost finished with and stamped the sentiment upside-down!!!)



This is for the 365 Cards Color challenge to use BOLD colors of red, blue, green, orange and yellow! Lucky for me, I had this school pad from DCWV. And you can't see it in the photos, but some of those apples are all sparkly.



Last but certainly not least - my Thanks! Owl. This one is for the Color Throwdown today and is also for Jen's SFYTT. The owl, however, I can't take any credit for. My friend Dalis had made THIS card, and I loved it -but she wouldn't part with it. What she did do, however, was send me four of these cute little owls as a "print". I assume she scanned her card and somehow wiped out everything but the owl. Don't know for sure - she's the computer wizard!

I am going to go back to the scrap table and see if I can't find some mojo! I have one more card to make that HAS to be made tonight...so I am gonna think on that one!

Thanks for stopping by!
