#37 - 45 Another kind of christmas

Have been cleaning my apartment all day because tomorrow we will have a showing of it as we are moving soon and need to get it sold. So this mean I'm not allowed to let my craft table be the terrible mess its usually is. And I bought the Let's Make Card Magazine, Issue 54, yesterday I decided that I would challenge myself to only use the products in the kit. I was allowed to add adhesive though. These designs are so color full and so full with pattern, not how I usually craft, but it was really fun, a big challenge. And here are those nine cards I made. Hope you like them.

#36 - Owlrly

So my ecraft has just been standing collecting dust, mostly because the software isn't on my main computer. But I thought it was time to play around with it, and I have been watching alot of how to tutorials on youtube with owls, so when I found that I had an owl on one of the sd-cards I just had to use it.

#34 - Monocrome

Over at Mojo Monday they have this wonderful sketch, and over at Simon Says Stamp Challenges the challenge this week is emboss it. And I got so inspired by both. I do a lot of cards with colored stamp characters, but I thought I make something different this time. So this is my card I'm entering in both challenges. The butterflies is heat embossed in silver, the background is dry embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder. Hope you enjoy!
