Creative Challenges

I don’t know if you remembered, but I set myself the goal to make lots of cards this month.  Here are some of them:

I was inspired by a fabulous card making class at Studio Calico, which included the ‘streamer’ stamps and the sentiments that I have used here. 


I have decided to set myself a challenge for April to take a photograph each day.  I’ve got out of the habit of taking photos so this will get me back into it.  There is more light now we are into British Summer Time even if there is not much warmth yet!  Part of the challenge will be to post them on the blog, so watch this space!

Here’s my first photo. Guess what we’ve been doing this weekend?  Yes, painting.  UGH!  I hate it!!  All the mess as you empty the room – in this case it’s our porch, so all coats and shoes are in a big heap on the hall floor, then the mess as you rub down, and then the difficulty painting and not getting drips onto the floor, or in your painting!  I think we’ve broken the back of it today, not too much more to do.

I hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter weekend.

That round card is so fun! And I really like the one with the motorcycle, too.

Hey I recognize those cards!!! You did great work on them. I like your photo challenge too. I haven't been taking many pics lately. It kind of made me want to do project life but that seems like too much work. Maybe I'll just challenge myself too, one week of pics or something. Love the rainbow layout with all those colors. Love the tree with knitted things.
