Virtual Card Making Party!

I finally finished all of last week's challenges and couldn't wait to get started on the Virtual Card Making Party.  I get so inspired by all the blogs and requests for certain types of cards.  I find that I'm so much more creative than if I'm just sitting in my craft area, staring at my stuff.
The first blog on the list is Scrappinintervention.  Chevrons, here we go!

The next stop along the way is Misty's Blog.  She's challenging us to make cards for kids, using animals.
I went with dogs because the dog in this house, has been boofing all morning.  At nothing, I might add.

Next up is a selective embossing project which I've never done before.  I expect my trash can to get a lot of my first attempts....
Well, it seems selective embossing was a bust at my house.  I had a lot of ripped paper and I just couldn't get my sandwich correct with the Sizzix.  Not to let it get the best of me, I finished up with this card.  I cut
a hole out for my stamp instead.  We'll see if my mood improves for another go-round of it tomorrow.


  1. WOW! I love these. That is a stunning way to present the chevrons and love the mice too!
