Happy Birthday

A few fun challenges:
 

Trying to get a bit ahead on the group birthday cards for work.  I made the February
cards yesterday and the March cards today.  I try to individualize by color,
what they like (flowers, sailing, nautical...)  this month I did their colors
and made similar cards.  I used a new happy birthday die I got on clearance at
Michael's by Spellbinders and it
cut like butter, it also came with a "with love" which
will be useful for Valentines day.

The House That Stamps Built Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge


Time for a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge!  I like these because they are challenging, I have to think a bit more on these, and they tend to be different than my usual style. 
 
 
No automatic alt text available.
 
I went with the diagonal, bottom left on up, Off the Edge, Blue and Silver:
 

I used Repeat Impressions: 4025-F, Deepest Sympathy, and Kennsington Branch by Memory Box, along with a new banner die by Tutti Designs.  A few pearls and I hope this will bring comfort.
 
Now it's your turn, we enjoy seeing your creations in our weekly challenge, so get creating for a chance in the monthly drawing for a $25 Repeat Impressions gift certificate. If you use a Repeat Impression's stamp and you get an extra entry, but any stamp is fine. See my right sidebar for a discount code.

Mixed Media and/or Colors

Can you believe it is January 1 already?  Time is really flying by.  I want to wish all of you a very Happy and blessed New Year. 
 
It's time for another challenge at  and another term at House of Cards, such a talented and fun design team!
 
My card started with the fun, bright colors above using Distress  Oxide Inks, but when I added a layer of Gesso, glitter, and another layer of Gesso over my distressed background it softened up. I still like the end result.  It was fun going with the colors, and mixed media.
