Here's the card I made for the Color Purple challenge for SCS VSN. I'm not normally a purple kind of girl. So I was looking through my paper and found this purple paper with a black tint to it. I knew this was what I needed. I embossed the Symbols of Solicitude stamped image faith. I also stamped the leaf image from Embrace Life on the background. It is a very simple card but I like the way it turned out.

I used my Gina K stamp set to make the card for the AUG08VSND challenge for Virtual Stamp Night. The challenge was to make a card with flocking or felt. I don't have any flocking, but Chris brought some stick on felt home the other day and said I might be able to use it on one of my cards.
So I ran it through the Cuttlebug with my Nesties and got a perfect circle for the moon. I colored the image with my Kohinoor pencils and blended it. Then I sponged the background with Night of Navy ink. I even added a little Crystal Effects on the eyes to make them shine.

I made a card tonight! This one is for the VSN challenge AUG08VSNC. I have never made a card like this. This is also the first time I've made one of these bookmarks with the big paper clip. This challenge was posted by Markie's Mom and she had a little tutorial on how to make this book mark into a card. There is very little stamping on this card because I used the cut outs that go along with the designer paper I used. This is some of my favorite paper!

My friend, Kelly, asked me to make a set of monogram cards for her to give to her SIL. She is getting married and Kelly wanted to give her some cards with her new monogram. She said not to use bright colors and she left it open from there. So, this is what I came up with. I used some of my DP that I love! I used Old Olive for the base color. I also got to add some of the great ribbon my secret sis sent me this round. I just love that olive ribbon with the green stitch on the outside edge. I also made a little paper box to put the cards and envelopes in. I hope she likes it!
