30×30 Days 9 and 10

Hello folks.  As you can tell I’m slipping a bit behind in my 30 card challenge.  And in an effort to catch up and make this challenge more enjoyable I will no longer be talking about or linking to the supplies used in each card.  If you see something on a card that you love and must have, please just ask and I will gladly pass along the information.  I know this will make my life easier and will hopefully keep you reading!

For those of you who aren’t that into cards, please don’t let the seemingly endless stream of card posts turn you away.  I will be interrupting  these posts later this week with a tutorial for a DIY Envelope book.  It’s cute and easy to make, so I hope you’ll hang in there!

Okay so for day 9 I wanted to use my maps.  I thought a little Colorado love was in order and it certainly didn’t hurt that it was a state that fit so nicely onto a card front.  This was a fun and easy map project so I’m sure you’ll be seeing a few more states from me in the near future.  I’m thinking a little Minnesota love may be coming your way soon.  

————————————————————————————

For day 10 I wanted to try my hand at some more stitching.  It certainly isn’t as easy as I thought it would be and I’m in the process of honing my skills.  My next directives are to learn to turn corners and to start and stop a stitch exactly where I want.

You may not know this about me, but office supplies are another addiction of mine, and I love the look of the file folder tab, not to mention the lined paper.  I wasn’t as pleased with the stamping on this card, but it was the end of the night and coming up with another folder tab would have taken more energy than I had.  Sometimes when making cards you have to know when to say “good enough” and then send it to your favorite aunt who thinks that everything you make is beautiful.I’m going to try my hand at some mechanical cards this coming week.  What kind of cards or sentiments would you all like to see?

Keep pressing on,

  1. I love your selection of paper squares for the the thank you card. What about a ‘break a leg’ card? Keep up the great work!

    • I’ve been trying to think of a funny scene for a break a leg card all morning. I’ll keep working on it and see what I can come up with. I keep having visions of you in the 8th grade. Thanks for the comment sis, love you!
