Wow I'm behind

I've been slacking, especially when it comes to keeping up with my blog. I haven't made many cards, but I have made a few; I just haven't posted them. First, the delay was dragging the camera and portable lightbox out and taking pictures. Then it was work keeping me extremely busy. So, since I have the day off, I figured I'd post a couple cards.

First card has already been mailed to the recipient, my brother-in-law. It was part of two challenges. First was Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply #75 challenge to stamp black only. Your embellishments could be another color, but the stamped image had to be only black. The second challenge was from my Cricutlovers Yahoo Group. Every Tuesday, one of the moderators starts a top 10 list. Around the same time as Sharon's challenge, the top 10 list was ten things you have in your stash that you haven't used. Yes, only ten, lol! A LONG time ago, I bought these little glass square embellishments at an LSS that has since gone out of business. I thought they would be cute on cards, but I never actually used them. So the challenge was to try to use at least one of the items you named in your top 10 list.

Supplies: Olive (card base and mats) and white cardstock from The Paper Company; black and grey striped paper from Making Memories Scrapbook Basics Black & White mat stack; Inkadinkado Seasons dragonfly stamp;Papertrey Ink Mixed Messages ; Colorbox chalk black ink; buttons and brads from my stash; white BasicBasic twill ribbon, green Offray Nice & Narrow ribbon; black & white Celebrate It ribbon.

The second card I have to share with you today is another birthday card. I made this one because I had just received my second order from Papertrey Ink and I was excited to try them out! The blue flowers are hard to see in this picture, but have a little bit better contrast in real life.

Supplies: Papertrey Ink Out On A Limb Revised; Papertrey Ink Mixed Messages (sentiment); Prima blue flower; clear skittle; brown satin ribbon from my stash; Martha Stewart border punch; Colorbox chalk ink; generic card blank; DCVW dark brown cardstock; Bazzill light blue cardstock.

Thanks for looking! I'll try to post a couple more this weekend. Now I have the pictures, but I want to spend my time making some more cards!
