A few cards

I'm finally back after a week with a few cards to show you. With vacation ending last Monday I think my creative enjoy got sucked away. I attempted the challenge from 365 Cards from Day 50 (Monday) and every time I looked at it, I walked away. Eventually I knew I had to finish it so I could move on. I still hate the card and nothing worked right with it, but it's finished and I can put it at the bottom of my pile...hehe. Anyway, here are Days 50, 51, 53, 54, and 56. I didn't do all 7 days like last week, but 5 out of 7 isn't bad since I re-entered the real world. Hope everyone had a great weekend and you are prepared for Monday.

Day 50: Digging Deep...the card I HATE! Must use:
1) An item that is more than a year old (the white embroidery thread)
2) Something that you were given that you have never used - this could be from a swap or a gift, but it has to have come from someone else. (the patterned paper)
3) Something you forgot you had.(the it from my scraps folder)

Day 51: Use red, stamp, and alpha stickers. Again, not my favorite by any means, but my mojo was lacking at the beginning of the week!

Day 53: Decorate the front, inside, and back of the card. I thought this would best be done by making a gate fold card. I didn't take a picture of the inside, but you can see the paper and there is a stamped sentiment.

Day 54: Joy-fold Card. I LOVE this card. It looks so complicated, but it's so easy and the result is so pretty. I will definitely be making this card more often!

Day 55: Sketch Sunday. I think this card came out pretty cute and it seriously only took me like 10 minutes from start to finish, which is pretty quick for me.

Thanks for looking!
