Sunday card show

I've been blogging a lot lately, I've started doing challenges and doing design team work and making lots more cards.  Being new to the card challenge world I've discovered a few things:  It is fun!  It is helping me become a better card artist!  I am meeting lots of new people! I have noticed that a lot of challenge posters are posting 1 card on as many a 25 challenges!  This seems to me to really side line the idea of the challenge.  So what I've decided to do is to not make one card for  a bunch of challenges but to make a card specific only to the challenge I am entering.  I think that is fair, I know how much work it takes to keep blogs interesting an filled with interesting content  pertinent to the subject of the blog.

 Since all of these challenges require linking up to the host, I'm not going to join a blog that I don't think my readers will enjoy, nor will I link to a blog that I find the content substandard.  Now I'm not saying I think my blog isn't a snore from time to time, but we all know there are some blogs out there that are 'out there' on more than one level!
So to keep you interested in card making and offering things that I think will be helpful, and not a dog and pony show about  Moi.  I'm working out a blog schedule, yep and that might be to just keep me on track!
Mondays I will be posting about Speedy TV's challenge (I'm on that DT),

Tuesdays will be open to spontaneous fun ;),

Wednesday Is What is On Your Workdesk fun - the international blog hop of work desks . 

Thursdays, will be for Word Art Wednesdays; they post the challenge on Weds so I can have it up for Thursday and Mojo Monday!

 Fridays will be Tutorial Time with Marks Finest stamps and papers, (I'm on that DT).

Saturday will be for my challenge postings:
 Clean and Simple, Less is More, Our Daily Bread, Twist of faith.
so with out further ado,

For the Twist Faith Blog, the color challenges were "sunset"   http://twistoffaithcards.blogspot.com/
He's a little blurry, I'm on my 3rd new camera in 8 months, I am to old for all that learning at such an advanced speed, I'm better with a new camera every two years.... Anyway:
 lots of masking with distress inks!
 
For the Clean and Simple challenge the theme was Neon!   http://casology.blogspot.com/
I love this card I make them in all kinds of Neon colors!
 
Our daily Bread's challenge   http://ourdailybreaddesignsblog.blogspot.com/2013/07/odbdslc161-love-wedding-or-anniversary.html is about love, wedding or anniversary, boy would I like to post the wedding invitations I just did.  Seeing that they haven't even been delivered, I don't think that would be a wise Idea!  So I have this card for it:
 
I can't make a love card without thinking of my husband, ours truly is an epic love!
 
I would have like to have used this card to combine the two challenges, but since I JUST said I wasn't going to do that I made the above card for the love challenge and this one
over at Less is More , anything but square or rectangle and only one layer!  http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/2013/07/week-128-one-layer.html
 
 
The goldfish stamp is an old hero arts stamp that I love!!  I had the idea of making the card a goldfish bowl shape when I was washing the dishes!
 
 
 
Stamp camp cards this week!



these were all the A2 size, I did a little revamping to bring them up to A6.  Good times!
 
 
I hope you are all having a nice weekend, we are, it has been full of good friends and happy times!

  6. Wow! You've been busy! I love your attitude to the challenges - many challenges have limits of 5 that you can link one card up to, and I think it's fine to be 'efficient' and double (or even triple) up, but there's satisfaction and fun in making cards specifically for each one. Love the bright green on your very important message! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!
