Since I lost a week somewhere along the month and since I didn't get a card made for Shopping Our Stash Back to the Books challenge I decided to finish what I started and make it a reminder post. The Challenge is Back to Books which means anything school, books or use a book page. I picked a favourite stamp store, House Mouse Designs, I didn't make a card I altered my date book which is something I usually do when I first buy my purse size date book but when I saw the challenge I knew I wanted to get 'er done.

I was working on the slimline cards for the challenge last weekend at the cottage but there were more pressing items to craft. I'm hoping I can get my mojo back. I have a new crafting desk which of course is not organized as well as it should be, it will take some time to find the right spots for things. It has a hanging file folder drawer that holds my cardstock scraps. Now on to my second mini slimline card for the Jingle Belles challenge.

Hello and I hope you are having some sunshine where you are, it's a gloomy, rainy, overcast day in SWO it just means I get to make my own sunshine. And that I did by getting a card done for the Jingle Belles Rock. I haven't managed to find time to make any for the challenge for a few months....gasp, now I'm going to be short when November comes. I do like making Slimline and Mini Slimline cards and the die I used works perfect for one.

For the Ode to Lindsey theme at A Tiny Craft (atc) challenge I looked through her posts and found that with most challenges she dug through her stash of inky backgrounds so that was my starting point, she also liked to use die cuts. Although difficult to go through her blog yet again it was a lovely read, her blog posts were always interesting, comical and informative. I decided to try a drink die I've had in my stash and I might have used it or maybe not.

Hello family, friends and followers, it's time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash and as you can tell by the title it's anything to do with sea, ocean, beach and shells...so many choices. Because I'm at the cottage for the long weekend (we are celebrating the Civic holiday August 1st.) I had decided to make a beach scene. Sometimes I get focused on what stamps I want to use, I forget all the other components of making a card, by now I should have had 75% of my dies and 10% of my cardstock so there was a lot of quick thinking and a short trip to the craft store in Delhi Ontario. Lots of 8 1/2 by 11 in every colour of the rainbow and very reasonably priced. Enough complaining and on to see what I did have to make my card.
