National Scrapbooking Week

I've been working on some cards for National Scrapbooking Week......there are some fun challenges over at "PaperArtistOnline" forum  you can check that out here.  You're welcome to join in on the fun.

The first card I did doesn't really qualify for any of the challenges.....I just found a background I had made sometime in the past and found this old car image that I must have rec'd in an image swap of some kind.  Thought it would make a great "masculine" birthday card.

This 2nd card is part of the "mix it up" challenge.  I used a Designer Tiles Tutorial from the Sept 08 newsletter from Technique Junkies - got out my sewing machine, that I haven't used in 6 years, made a flower with a spellbinder die and topped it off with a button and waxed linen thread. 
I hope you enjoy and would love to have you share with us at "Paper Artist Online"

Challenge on "SquirrelyArt" Blog

Nancy Young of "SquirrelyArt" Blogspot has been doing a little challenge to some of her friends for a while.....I decided to join in.........

This week she chose to challenge us to use the PinWheel Tech from the August 2010 newsletter from Technique Junkies. 

This is my card for this week's challenge.  I used all papers, etc from the Adobe Kit from Club Scrap. 
Hope you enjoy - and don't forget to check out Nancy's card and follow the links to others in the group that are participating in her challenges.

I did have fun doing this as this Pinwheel tech is fun to do.......this will be a "general purpose" card with a place for someone to write a message on the inside.
