Em's Challenges-Caught Up!

Finally completely caught up on Em's challenges! Yay!

I finally decided how I was going to store my cards.

This is a tin I bought from Joann's last Fall when they were clearancing thier summer stock. I think I paid .39 for it. I covered it in papers, velvet rick-rack and added a tag. I put added rub-ons to name it because it now hangs in our living room on the wall. EVERYONE asks to loook in it.

Here they are:

Week 20: Change

Pretty simple stuff but one of my fave cards to date.

Back of the card.

Week 19: Surprise!

I made a spinner with a window with some random thoughts on surprises.

Week 18: Nature

This is picture is taken looking out of the sliding glass door in my dining room. We live on 27 acres adjacent to a state game reserve. Our own little slice of Heaven.

Back of the card. Added some twigs from our yard.


Week 17: My Bedroom

Tried crocheting around the edge of the card and added a crocheted flower.
Simple stuff.

Week 16: Have someone else contribute.

Ash, my daughter did one side. I handed it to her and said do whatever. She said she wanted it to look like a flower with bling, LOL So I did the same with my side only my "old" style...LOL
