You girls have been busy!! I am starting my 100 cards this week instead of next. Need to pick up my desk from the mess I created doing 2 explosion cards for birthdays last week. I got kinda lazy after I finished. They were fun but time-consuming. Have wanted to do one forever.

Kelli: love the Pretty in Pink card. That ballerina is SO cute.

Patty: That wreath is unbelievable!!! You sure have more patience than me lol. Just stunning. I am sure it brightens up your entry and makes people smile.

Jeanette: all your cards are wonderful. LOVE the owl. That's a favorite in our house right now as our DD LOVES OwlCity. Your girls card is so pretty!

WOW, Janet!!!! You have been busy too!!! I have wanted to do a stationery box for so long but never find the time... maybe this year.

April: the HKisses Easter basket is such a great idea and cute. I am going to try to make that cupcake for a birthday coming up and maybe the Christmas tree later in the year. All your cards are so pretty!!! Love the puddlejumpers cake in a cup as well as the Easter card. The purples are so pretty together. I did my Easter cards in purple this year too. I see you are in WNY. I am in the Rochester area. Are you near us?

Not sure I can keep up with how busy you ladies have been lately, but I will sure try.
Have a fantastic day!!

Good Morning Ladies! So good to see you!

YAY! Sharon, I'm so glad you're getting ready to start your 100 in 100. I can't wait to see what you create!

Sharon, thank you for your sweet words about my cards!

Hi Pansy, April............ and everyone else, too!

I have made several of those - and the way I make mine, it isn't as frustrating (with time) - it takes me shorter amount of time since I've done it several times, I guess! . Do you have the directions?

Default Catching up

Wow, you ladies truly have been busy - since Holy Week and Easter are finally past I'll be like April and upload.
Kelly - love the new beach picture! and the fungi card - a german challenge - this 100 in 100 is tough enough and DT, girl you rock!!!

Jeanette - love the paper dolls - I think I have those same pattern papers, somewhere....

Sharon and Tania - WELCOME! Can't wait to see what you create. In the first 100 in 100 one of the challenges was you were not to buy anything new - adhesives and such were allowed but the idea was to use up our stash. Though I did cheat - went shopping on Good Friday...

April - I love the cupcake and cake in a cup, very cute. I will be CASEing in the future.

Sorry, the post is so long...with this upload I think I'm up to 95.

Jeanette - love the peach and background paper. love the layout, printed it out to use at some point.

A nap sounds like a very good idea to me - learned to do that when my guys were napping. And it sounds pretty good right now.

OK, so I think I am a little slow. I have been trying to figure out why Jeanette's cards always pop and mine don't. I can make a card with three or four coordinating papers and it looks boring and hers don't. I finally got it! It is ALL the layers. I LOVE card 109. I just think it is amazing and it is all card stock and pretty paper, no stamped images, just the stamped sentiment. BUT holy cow!, there are 10 layers on the front of the card. I did not bother to count the ones inside, but I'm sure there are almost as many inside as out. I never think to layer pretty, bright papers with black, but it sets off every layer. I never even saw the black on the peach card, but I looked back at her last few cards and they are all layered with black. I learned something new today! So my next couple of cards I'm, going to have to try it to see what happens. Thank you Jeanette for being such a great inspiration!

I agree Angie - Jeanette, Pansy, and Kel are great inspirations! I'm still practicing and mine look never as together. And forget the paper matching, yikes.

#97 & 98 finished last night (according to my gallery since I can't count). Heading off to Maple Syrup Festival later this morning so hopefully can play later today. Enjoy your weekend!

Hello Ladies!

Awwww... how sweet of you to say that, Angie! And you are right about one thing... I almost always layer with black. It just seems to be my style, I guess. (When I try to make a card without the black layer, I'm rarely happy with the outcome.) LOL! I got through lots of that CHEAP black CS. After all, it's just a layer, so it doesn't have to be heavy CS. I buy the cheap packages at Hobby Lobby or Michael's, depending on who has it cheapest at the time. And since I live 1 1/2 hours from the closest one, when I find a good deal, like yesterday ($1.99 for a package of 50 sheets - at Joann's) I stock up! I bought 5 packages. LOL! That should do me for the next SEVERAL months!!!

I was actually getting quite low on black CS and was worried, since the "guidelines" for 100 Cards in 100 Days is no new purchases other than adhesive. What would I do if I ran out of black CS. LOL! I have enough left to get me to the 10th, though, so I'm good. I won't have to open a new package for another couple of weeks, I think!

Hi Kel! Thanks! I did have fun!

Karla, your cards are GREAT! I especially like the Gears to You... great play on words!

I took the 3 Ways to Stamp It class yesterday - I wasn't overly impressed with it. But I did learn something and thought I'd share....

If you have a clear stamp set that has an outline image (the one we used was outline leaves that most oven you would stamp and then color).... You can turn the stamp over and put in on your acrylic block upside down. Stamp it off, so you get a lighter shade of green or whatever color you choose. Then wash the stamp, turn it over and stamp on top of that "color" smudge to get the leaf outline. It is a fun technique that I would have never thought to try.

Default I made it!!!!!

Whewwwwwwwwwww! I did it...Day 96 and 100 cards finished. I am up to Card Sketch Challenge 167 now.....I didn't use card sketches for some of today's cards as I had images to use that didn't fit any in the page I was working from.....I know I know I could skip around and find one that would...but part of my OC disorder is that I have to do it in order......LOL!
So----have fun looking or ignoring......
Cards 1 and 2 use SC161-just flopped it vertical for a change up
Card 3 uses SC 163---and everything but the black paper mats came from the kit I was sent...had enough images to make 6 cards but only completed 3 today
so cards 94 and 95 use the same images and some of the same papers...they were SC162 and no SC.
Card 96 was different...the papers were way too busy for me so I used a few more subdued ones from my stash. and it still came out busy...but I like that High Hopes dragon stamp.
Card 97 makes you think of summer days.....
Card 98-the get well one, is SC 165 and used leftovers from several kits for papers and embellishments
Card 99-is SC 166 --all the papers are from my stash and the image was leftover from the original kit.......I think.....who knows?
and last but not least----

CARD 100--from SC167----I started out thinking I wanted a totally black and white card but ended up adding the smaller orange butterfly.
But I am done! and have only about 8-10 kits left to use though I have about 30 images left over from previous kits.....
I think I will just file them away ...will finish the kits and then I want to start using some of my stamp sets that have never seen ink.
won't be home for a week this time as MR. H's mom has a new schedule and it is a big change. so next Saturday the 13th will be my start date for the next 100 cards.

Congrats Pansy on finishing the 100 and coloring all the way to the end!

Jeanette - I like the pink and green. Got two more to go - one will be for SIL and one for a great niece. For me family are always harder...
