I actually had a little time to myself this week and took full advantage of it! I made some cards! I have a habit of getting up every morning, going to the PC, browsing through a whole bunch of challenge sites, and writing down all the challenges! But even though I have every intention of getting to these said challenges, they sit on my desk and another week goes by without me doing one of them! Well not this week! I made sure to tackle some of them!!!

So here are my cards!

The first one, I have been drooling over all the cards on the net that have been coloured on Kraft card stock. I love the effect! So I had to give it a try. I think I need a little more practice. The colours really do work differently on Kraft!

Here is a close up of the image.

Challenges entered for this card are:
Brown Sugar: Occupation ( not really sure if this qualifies, but they are cooking up a Cherry Pie! LOL)

My second card is one for my Christmas stash! I figured I had better get going on that! Christmas has a tendency to creep on me!

Challenges entered for this card:
Winter Wonderland: Red and Green
Diva's by Design:Anything Goes
Whimsy:Lots of Layers
Cute card Thursday: Bling (her coat and hat)
