Today's challenge at 365 Cards is tissue paper-use some tissue paper on your card. We just celebrated my daughter's 8th birthday and I made several large tissue paper flowers for decorations. I made a smaller version for my card and used the tissue paper for the background paper on this card.

Day 89 at 365 Cards is Courage and Strength. You can use the sentiment along with an image, or just the sentiment to deliver a message of hope, courage, faith, strength...something along those lines. I made a thank-you to give to someone who has served our country.

Day 87 at 365 Cards is all natural, something on your card should involve something from nature on your card. I knew I had some pansies I had press into a book several years ago. I found them after only looking at 3 other books. Since I have a lot of books I was quite surprised to find them so quickly.

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is 4 wheel drive- you need to have 4 wheels of any kind on your card. With summer coming I made a camper card using my everyday paper dolls cartridge. We are not campers however if we had a camper I think we would go camping more then once a year. We go once a year for a weekend with friends from church and have "good times". Have a great weekend!

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is substitution please. Substitute a number for a word in your sentiment. Any substitution counts, EXCEPT for example, "Happy 5th Birthday". I asked my husband for ideas and here's some of what he came up with- Thanks 2 Every-1 4 all the Gr-8 Gifts, Gr-8 job on 2-sday, Don't 4-get 2 rsvp by the next 2-sday, Thanks 2 Every-1 4 A-10-ding my gr-8 party. I guess if I need any help with words and numbers I'll ask him for ideas. Can you tell by his ideas we are getting ready for my daughter's birthday party, she turns 8 so this is a perfect thank-you card for her to use. Have a Gr-8 weekend!

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is keep it to yourself-friendship. With a Keep it to Yourself challenge, the idea is to convey the message on the outside without actually saying it with a sentiment. If you'd like to include a sentiment, you can put it on the inside of the card. The card should be all about Friendship.

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is a color scheme challenge. With these colors I made a patriotic card. I'm not sure if I have ever sent out a 4th of July card but maybe I should make some more and have a party! Summer is almost here; my kids are counting the days until the end of school. Have a great day!

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is Super Sketchy Sunday. I have been making thank-you cards for my daughter to use for her upcoming birthday. Hope everyone had a great weekend! Our roofing project is done, at least my part of it. Goodbye giant scissors, hello paper scissors.

Saturday's challenge at 365 Cards is criss cross apple- sauce. This challenge needs a criss cross pattern to appear on your card somewhere. I'm really trying to use up paper from my scrap drawer, it is overflowing. I'm sure I have some paper that is criss crossed but not in my scrap drawer. My goal is to get that drawer, actually 2 drawers down to half full instead of overflowing. Have a great Sunday!

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is the 3 F's. That means your card needs to include at least one of each of the following three things:Fringe, Fairy tale, and your Favorite color. My favorite color is green, I raided my daughters craft drawer for the fringe, and I made a castle card. I found the template for this card at A Path of Paper and I decided a fairy tale card is the perfect time to try this castle card.

The 4th challenge at My Pink Stamper is to use the cartridge you like the least or have used the least. I used my Home Accents cartridge for the first time. I've had it for a while and have never used this cartridge. I ended up using it for the next challenge too.
