Do you love a Challenge??

     I do  love  to  create cards,  tho some thimes I either loose my  creative ability,  or  wonder why I do it. It seems I am just a  basic style  card maker, and I rarely reach  a goal of  creating some thing spectacular... Then I remember the feeling I get  to know  that when some one opens a card from me , that it was at least made with LOVE.
    I have  had  several people  tell me to try  to do challenges, it  motivates  , and it gets  more traffic on a blog  and  more comments in   a gallery...   So I am trying. If I can get  more motivated, and maybe  gain the  ability to reach  a deeper level of creating, then it will be a win win  for me   : )
   A sweet sweet lady that I  know  on line from SCS    is on Perfect sentiments  design team ~Maggie or Margaret ~  She  always encourages me to enter a card.  I think  she  believes it might make me raise my standards  : )  And in truth, that would  not be at all a bad thing .
   So these  were made  for Perfect Sentiments  challenge this week...It needs to be a Thanksgiving or Fall card  with the sentiment on the front...The best part is  it also needs to be CAS   that means, Clean and Simple...   Woo Hoo  a challenge I might be good at

   First is  a basic set from SU  Lovely as a Tree, stamped on shimmer paper for a touch of  sparkle or elegance ... I added sheer ribbon  to keep some elegance going...  the image was supplied  by my Daughter    : )
I used  chocolate chip as my base and ink color

     And second is another CAS  card, I used Sahara Sand for the base,  and Burgundy for the only color... I stamped the leaves, cut them out  then  put Versa Mark Shimmer on them and heat embossed  with clear embossing powder...I heat embossed the Sentiment too .Then I added a thin line of ribbon   ...  So even tho you cannot see it very well, these leaves and words  do  have a shiny look to them  : )

     If you are not familiar with Perfect Sentiments,  please go check them out. There are some super talented ladies  over there !

    I know, I know ...  2 updates  in 2 days   WOW   : )
    It just goes to show

     Til next time ...
