Crafty Time Card Challenge

My friends Karen and Cheryl came over yesterday to make some cards. Last month when we met we challenged each other to design a card with a set of stamps that we picked out for each other. Since we were at my house we got to pick from my much neglected stash of Stampin' Up stamps. This was a fun challenge!

I picked for Karen the Friendly Flowers set and for Cheryl, the Fabulous Flowers set. Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE flowers????? Cheryl and Karen decided together and chose Wonderful Wings for me.

I have to say that I really enjoyed doing this and I think they did too. We ended up repeating this challenge for next month with different sets and cannot wait to see what we all come up with for our next designs! It is a great way to use sets that are sitting on a shelf begging to be used!

Here are the results:

February 12 of 12

It has taken some getting used to, this remembering to take 12 pictures on the 12th day of every month. I was never in the habit of taking pictures of every day things but I think that at the end of the year I will really appreciate these single days of the month when normal life gets captured for us to look back on.

This 12 of 12 day was a little more than an ordinary day. It was the day that my husband and I took off from work to celebrate our birthdays. We do this every year. Our birthdays are almost 2 weeks apart and being able to make it a nice long weekend, coupled with the holiday was very nice.
