Are you up for a Challenge??

I was reading about cards with no layers......NONE. How in the world are you supposed to make a card with no layers you ask?? Don't tell, but I was wondering the same thing. But I have to say that I saw some absolutely GOR-JUS samples. So, I decided I would take a stab at it too. In this particular thread I was reading, they wanted examples of Christmas cards, so that is what I made. Talk about LIMITED supplies! I only own one christmas set...Flaky friends. But I also have Fun and Fast Notes and the little tree in that set is so cute. So here is my one layer card.....please don't laugh toooooo hard. I tried adding a ribbon but it was just too much! HA! I think it is really purty as is....let me know what ya think!

The ingredients for this card are:

Whisper white cardstock, basic black ink, bashful blue ink, pastels, scrap paper to make reverse mask, sponge, blender pens.

Do ya likey? Hope so! I have quite a few samples to post over the next few stay tuned for oh so much more!!!

I'm so sorry!!

I have been so busy, that I have TOTALLY neglected my blog. I have a fun card I made that I want to share. I've had this idea in my head since I saw Bronc Buster!! It isn't exactly the way I want it to look, and as soon as I get the Wild West Alpha, I plan to stamp words on the belt, like kids' belts that have the tooled leather with their names on them. So, if you see anyone with that on a card......remember you saw the idea here first!! hee hee! Ok....on to the card. It was made with:


Night of navy, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip


Close to Cocoa, Whisper White


Bronc Buster


Word window punch, Red Grosgrain ribbon

Now........was that not worth the wait?????? I think it turned out pretty frickin' cute!! If only I had the just jeans background though!! I know there is a lot more I could have done to take it up a few more notches....but hey, I was in a hurry!!
I have some more cards I made over the past week that I will post later today or tomorrow. I haven't taken pictures of them yet. I hope you like the card and that you will forgive me for being such a slacker!! I will really try to update as much as possible this next couple of weeks, because there is no telling how long it will be before we get all settled in once we move!! Thanks for sticking with me and stay tuned!!
