Beccy's Holiday Challenge - e

 With my lack of ambition as well as time, I am finding myself doing more very simple cards.  I have one of those unending books of cs from Card Craft, and need to use those materials  The edging is embossed as is the background blue cs.  I also used embellishments.

The Crafter's Cafe - Challenge 254 - Just for Fun

  The current challenge at the Crafter's Cafe is just for fun - let us see your newest creations.  I really like vintage images, and selected this one from TLC for a card for my sister - she has 2 or 3 of the most modern sewing machines, for quilting but probably learned on one similar to this.

On a personal note - I am asking for your prayers.  I have started another round of chemo for endometrial cancer.  So far I have not had side effects which is a blessing.  Unfortunately I have some other health issues and must take a med that makes me very tired, and takes away my ambition - hence I have been mostly MIA the past few months.

Crafter's Cafe Oct 1 challenge -- anything goes

Tou have until Oct, 4 to post your entry for the current Crafter's cafe challenge - anything goes, once again.  Check out the blog to see the varied interpretations of this cute image, Two Little Mice by alldressedup.  I used mostly purple for the background.  The DP, sequins and fiber are all from my stash.  I used a watercolor wash to color.

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge #251 seasons

This card is about 5 x 7.  I used this digital image from Eureka - Matthew 2:1-2.  The challenge for the rest of the month at the Crafter's Cafe is "seasons", so I chose the Christmas season.  You might even try food seasoning like salt and pepper.  As you can see, I have used several layers.  Stars and Scripture begin with SThings I love include the Scripture, Washi tape, and patterned paper.  I also really like die cuts.  This die is from a set from Peachy Cheap.  I layered the yellow and black,, but must admit it is a challenge to adhere skinny letters!

I know Blogger is changing, and I do not do well with change, so I hope the following links will work.

Crafter's Cafe challenge #250 - ATG

Please join us this week for the Anything Goes challenge at the Crafter's Cafe.  I selected a free digital image from my files - from TLC.  This is a birthday card for my sister in law (shhh. #83).  She was a teacher, so the book theme is appropriate. 
Sketch - from the archives at Sketch Saturday.

Happy Birthday, Nora Dorothy ~ Crafter's Cafe Challenge #249

The new challenge at the Crafter's Cafe is to include dots and/or stripes.  I found someof each in an old Debbie Mumm collection.  Our first (and so far, only) great grand child will be one in November. so I am actually ahead of the game!  While our grandson completes his med school residency they are living near a beach in Florida, so this tropical theme is quite appropriate.  We obviously have not been able to see her in person but we see a lot of photos and videos on Facebook. 
Some of you may recall that I am not coloring much due to macular degeneration, but I did dust off the Prismas for this one.  I added the Cuttlebug number 1 backed by a couple of die cut flowers.
Please join us over the next couple of weeks for this challenge at the Crafter's Cafe..  I am sure you have some dots or stripes you can use!
Remember the limit of ten challenges entered in addition to the Crafter's Cafe challenge.
