Posting more cards!

I am entering another challenge this time in a Facebook group I belong to.  LiveLoveCards is the group that Darlene DeVries started.  The challenge for March is using colored cardstock.  I will leave her info for you.  Need to find it again.  After much searching I finally found the video.  It is on Jennifer McGuire’s Youtube is called “Striped die cutting” and here are the cards I made.  One card posted but I am having problems getting the second one posted.

To make this card I took three pieces of cs and cut strips you can vary the sizes or cut them evenly.  I then glued them on a piece of cs as evenly as possibly.  I then cut the pieces evenly at both edges.  I decided to use the SSS Birthday die and cut one from the striped paper and another from a piece of white cs.  Using the cut out pieces from each color I inlayed the pieces on the opposite cardstock cards.  Then attached them each to card bases and walla 2 cards ready to go.

 

Where has the time gone?

So sorry for my lack of posting in the past two months.  I wish I could say I have been on an exciting trip with a handsome new guy but that would not be true.  I have just been letting time slip away from me.  In other words not doing anything exciting or not.  So I am hoping to post a little more often maybe a couple of times a month more if I can manage it.

Our family was blessed on March 3rd with the arrival of Peyton Grace Joiner.  She joined her Mommy Ericka and Daddy Daniel and 2 big sisters Logan Amelia age 4 1/2 and Reece Lynn age 3.  So I now have 3 beautiful great granddaughters.
