How about That!

First blog post done and photos added too. Maybe I might just get the hang of this eventually

Its been a long time

I set up this blog about 18 months ago, but have never used it till today. Don't quite know how it will work out but here goes!

Some friends and I have a small challenge group on Facebook and two of our challenges this month were to
a) make a card using a colour you don't normally use and b) make a card without using ribbon.
My entries were:

I never use Garden Green. It has been sitting in my card stash for about 3 years and this is the first time I have ever cut into a sheet of it. Don't know that it will ever be my favourite colour but at least its no longer unused.


This is my Use no Ribbon Card, and I guess I cheated a bit here because the punched strip looks like ribbon, but it isn't ribbon so it still meets the criteria

We had some other challenges too. Something for Easter and something done in Autumn colours. I've done the Easter one, but won't be posting them till later as they are Easter gifts and I don't want to spoil the surprise for the recipient (not that they are likely to stumble across my blog efforts)
