Another HYCCT

The last few weeks I have been participating in the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges, a card drive benefitting MD Anderson Cancer Center. I have had so much fun making the cards. I just mailed my last box of cards today. But I think I will keep working on some more for them. Here are a few of the cards I made for the drive.

Here I am again

There has been so much time pass since I last posted to this blog, I almost feel like I should just scrap the whole thing and start over. But the truth about my life is that I don't have much time to keep up with things that I enjoy. So I will just start again right here and try to post at least once a week -(Have I said that before? -LOL).

Challenging Challenges

I have made a few cards the last few days for the Weekly Inkling Challenges and they have been very challenging for me. Nothing seems to translate onto paper exactly as I see it in my head. But I'm trying. Some I sort of like and others I don't like too much. Here are a few of the latest tries.

This card was for the Technique Lovers Challenge #290

This card is for the Clean & Simple #84

This one is for the Free 4 All #34
