Happy New Year’s Eve! It’s hard to believe 2013 is coming to a close already! We will be ringing out the old with the 3rd annual Wall Family Dance Party. With any hope, I will be participating and not sick on the couch as I was the past two years. (I’m auto posting, so this remains to be seen.) I have my finally three months of my favorites/year in review.
Pretty and Frilly Bra
October kicked off the Hope You Can Cling To (HYCCT) challenges at SCS. I had participated in a handful in 2012 and being a breast cancer survivor, I wanted to participate in the entire month’s worth of challenges. Be forewarned — there will be lots of PINK in October & November!
This was one of my favorites from the entire month long challenge. I know how much I enjoyed shopping for pretty new bras after completely reconstructive surgery earlier this year. Of course, I went with pinks and black, some pearls, some lace and some really pretty papers. LOVE it!
This was an inspiration challenge and I was very happy with my result. Lots of die-cutting for the ruffles in gradient pinks. LOVE it!
Doing 30+ challenges over the course of a month makes you step out of your comfort zone. I stepped into a lot of CAS designs over the month and this was one of my absolute FAVES! This challenge was to combine pink and camouflage, not exactly easy for me. I sponged the tee with 3 shades of pink to create my own camo. Love how it turned out and the CAS style!
OMG! Did you hear?
I had this Victoria Case for SCACD image all colored and finally put it on a card for the HYCCT challenges. I love how it matched up with fun conversational cloud paper and the sentiment was created using stamps from a Paper Pretties set.
I’m not sure if I’m a closeted Oakland Raider fan or what, but I LOVE silver and black together. Nothing says elegance like they do! Love this a*muse studio chandelier image — it’s loaded up with rhinestones and some pretty double sided ribbon.
This was such a fun card to create — I used my Martha Stewart branch punch and punched out a bunch of sparkle lime green paper. Very fun!
Sometimes a card just comes together perfectly with minimal ingredients. This was one of them — a fantastic piece of designer paper, a fab pair of heels and just the perfect touches.
My last HYCCT card and I LOVE the simplicity of it. I love damask patterns and although yellow definitely isn’t one of my favorite colors, I love the pop of it! Simple elegance!
The simplicity of this card just makes me happy! I had to make 30 of them so simplicity was a must. Love kraft, white and red together.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
