Today's challenge at 365 cards was to round the corners. This came together quickly using some little scraps. Amazingly, I was able to get all of this month's challenges done at 365 cards. I have quite a few cards in my stash, a few ready for a gift set and best of all I think I actually got cards for all the birthdays and occasions sent this month! Thanks to the wonderful team at 365 cards for the inspiration and challenges!!

My son and I did a little scrapbooking today and came up with this quick layout for this week's Scrapping Out Loud challenge to create a layout using a split complimentary color scheme. I also used this week's sketch and word of the week too. These are some old photos from 2002 - nice to get them scrapped.

I had made a card similar to this in the past, and the recipient loved it, so when I saw that today's challenge at 365 cards was to create a scene - a nature scene, I decided to make another one like it. I used a dauber and 4 different colors of ink for the sunset then stamped the images in black.

Today I needed to make a birthday card for my friend Bonnie, and decided to combine a couple of challenges. The color combination came from Dawn McVey at My Favorite Things and I followed a sketch at 365 cards. I used the June Word Puzzle stamp set from CTMH to created the random stamping and creme brulee, sorbet & watermelon stamp pads.

A cute little photo of Nicole last spring. I saw an inspiration challenge at Mix it Up that had spring colors and similar styled flowers. I used felt to create my flowers, and ribbon for the stems. Today's challenge at Scrapping Out Loud was to use some lyrics from Dionne Warwick's That's What Friends Are For. As soon as I searched out the lyrics and found keep smiling, keep shining, I knew exactly what photo to use. I also used their sketch, turned sideways. Even with making my own flowers, this layout came together very quick.

Today's challenge at 365 cards was to make a card with a sun on it, or use the card to convey how the sun makes you feel. I used some CTMH stamps, scraps of patterned paper and some jewels to come up with this for a friend who is going through a tough time and may need something to brighten her day.

Today's challenge at 365 cards was to make a flower out of patterned paper and use it on a card. Last month, Nicole at Scrapbooker's Clubhouse had posted a tutorial here, on making a flower using pp and a square punch. I hadn't gotten around to it so tried it out and thought the resulting flower was pretty cute!
Day 10's challenge at 365 cards was to use a photo on a card. VERY unusual for me, but I had taken this photo of the old farmhouse and had planned on sending it to my Aunt so thought, why not turn it into a card. I wanted the photo to be removable so didn't use any adhesive on it so had to come up with another way to hold it on.

Found this photo and thought I'd better get it scrapped before it disappeared again. This is Scott's hockey photos from 4 years ago and the photo worked perfectly for this week's challenge at Scrapping Out Loud, to use black and one other color in a layout. I also used their sketch even though it wasn't intended for this big of a photo. Used some stamps and a bunch of metal 'stuff' to accent.

I've had this layout planned for quite awhile, and it finally came together. I used Noella's sketch #43 at Creatively Yours, just turned it sideways. I also took the challenge at Mix It Up to recycle something - the green glittered snowflake circles and strips are from an old Christmas card. It's STILL cold here and we're getting really tired of it!!!

I've never done it before, so I thought I'd take up the challenge at Scrapping Out Loud and make a layout about myself. Me......today. It took me awhile to figure out how to take pics of myself in the mirror and actually get myself in the picture - I've got lots of great shots of the door frame behind me! Then it took awhile to think of what I wanted to say, finally I just went for it and this is what I came up with:

Another card. This one is for my cousin Jodi's birthday tomorrow. I again used today challenge at 365 cards to come up with it. The challenge was an ad inspired challenge - I pulled out the colors & placement, and noticed there was a tray of cupcakes in the ad, so went with that.

A birthday card for Auntie Joan that will be a bit late since the mailman won't get it there by tomorrow - oops! Monday's challenge at 365 cards was to use only two embellishments on a card, so I used a flower & a decorative brad. All the supplies are CTMH, I did some random stamping to create the patterned paper.
