New Year - New Cards

Wow, the cakes for today's Inspiration Challenge are ABSOLUTELY incredible! You wouldn't want to eat them they're so intricate! Not, the one I picked for my first card - but you've got to check out the website - Cake Nouveau - to at least look at them!!! Last week's challenge over at Our Creative Corner was to use something clear - thus the velum on this card - not truely clear - but sort of.

This second card is for this past week's Sketch Challenge, Colour Challenge (So Saffron, Handsome Hunter, and Bravo Burgundy) and the Creative Corner Challenge - clear Buttons. I used rub-ons on the buttons, as well as on the main saffron piece.

I'm heading to school to get things set in place - it will be interesting to see what the classroom is like after not being in it for three months. Then - I'm going to do THIS weeks' challenge at Our Creative corner which is a sketch challenge.

Have a great day and stay warm. JOAN

Hi Joan, I marveled at your creation on SCS, but I noticed that you left a very thoughtful comment on my blog not only about my card (which don't get me wrong, I love it when talented people like my work) but your kind words about my Grandfather were so sweet. I have never even met you and still you offered your kindness to me. I am a Christian also so we already have a lot in common, but I wanted to let you know that it meant so much. Small acts of kindness can be so meaningful. Thank you!!!!
