Ginny made me do it!

I know many of you are familiar with Ginny over at my5bratz. She is so kind and sweet, but honestly, BEWARE - she’s an enabler! She has managed to complete a ton of challenges from 365 cards (check out her blog) and now, I’m determined to do the same. The challenges are fun and new.

I have decided to reach out beyond the challenges I was doing and needed to organize all of them. I spent the weekend writing out all of the challenges on individual index cards so I can keep track of them and work on them when I have a chance.

So, here’s my very first completed challenge for 365 Cards. This is challenge 37, Touchy Feely Friday. We were to incorporate 3 different methods of adding texture to a card.

So, I used dry embossing with my CB, stickles on my flowers, diamond dust on my cloud and wet embossing on my sentiment.


Personally, I hate orange – I just never, ever use it on a card, but my son picked out the orange and wanted me to make a card using orange. UGH! So, this is what we came up with. Not my favorite card, but I have moved this around my desk for weeks now and he wanted to know when I was going to use it to finish a card.


Happy Stampin'!
