Well, I had hoped to make some birthday cards - instead back to where I seemed to start this challenge making sympathy cards. This one I made for a quilting friend. Have a great Tuesday everyone, hope to be back later off to work.

Kelli - sorry about the challenge being taken down, I have a feeling you'll be inspired by another challenge or two.

Here's #100 for me, another sympathy. A classmate of my DH's and friend from church. Time to cleanup the craft space before starting on my SIL's birthday card.

Wow! Kel...those are awesome birthday cards......You did great! and you finished on time.......NOW answer honestly---can you see where your stash decreased? LOL! Neither could I----except I emptied the bin that had card kits in it, and by giving some embellishment leftovers to grandson to make cards with I cleaned up another tray. and I held a sack sale of stamps, tool, and papers that I no longer wanted in my collection and sold quite a bit of it that way. I am in a purging mode right now and DH is afraid I might get rid of him too--LOL! But I gutted a notebook I made as part of a scrapbooking class over 10 years ago and kept the dividers. Then yesterday I covered it in Western themed papers and it is ready to hold my visual inventory.
Woke up with a case of bacterial pinkeye this morning....and I am to care for my new grandson Friday and Saturday so made a rapid phone call to the doctor office for antibiotic treatment.
Still cold here today.....I'm talking 20's with a high of 34.....someone forgot to buy Old man winter a one way ticket out of here.....

I'm home... trying to catch up!

CONGRATULATIONS TO Karla and Kel!!! WOO HOO!!! Way to go on finishing the challenge! You are an inspiration!

Lovely cards, Karla, but sorry you had a need to create sympathy cards. HUGS!

Kel, your cards are beauties, too! I'll leave love on your blog soon. That's weird about the DT/challenge blog closing so abruptly. Makes me wonder why they even put together a new DT. I'm sorry you lost that gig, so glad you have others, though!

Oh my! Pansy, I'm sorry to hear of the pinkeye... get better. I didn't depleat a thing with this challenge, BTW. LOL!

I know, Angie, I was shocked, too!

Yea Jeanette.......you did well......I like the cards matted with green and with the new color thingy Stampin Up announced, I am going to have even more retired paper colors that need to be used up......Not that it is important but I used only retired colors and one in -color that I hate for card bases for the 100 card challenge. Now I can add more colors to the mix....LOL!. and of course, one that I used up is now being brought back as a regular color.

congrats jeanette on having a post every day for the first 100! that's amazing!!

pansy - this challenge did make me use stuff but dent my stash?? i thought i did but then i found that other crate of card kits!!!!! so honestly, no, it hasn't done much to my stash but it has forced me to reorganize and rearrange and purge in order to have a better workflow so that in itself was worth it!!! hope you get better before seeing baby H.

DH decided he wanted to host dinner on friday so of course we're rushing to clean up. my craft room rearranging/cleaning is not done yet and it's the first room you walk into when you enter the house... it's not the formal entrance but it's the entrance we've used for years so when people come over, i am FORCED to put things away and make it pretty!!! off to clean up again. neverending, isn't it??

Thanks Pansy and Kel!

Pansy, I was so disappointed to here of some of the colors that are retiring. How about you?

Kel, what time am I to be there Friday? Oh, and no need to clean up the craft room on my account.

Yes....I mean they are taking away my Bravo Burgandy and Certainly Celery and most shocking of all MORE MUSTARD AND NOT QUITE NAVY-----I won't miss Pretty in Pink(never bought it in any form) or Regal Rose or whatever it was ---I have never had Sky Blue so hope it is a good sub for Bashful Blue--but I am gagging all the way to the store over bringing back Pear Pizzaz( I sold my reinker to a gal that really likes it and was just going to use the pad till it died---guess now I will have to think about a new reinker)
Bermuda Bay is ok but they took River Rock-----and whatever the others are....I hope the Smoky Slate is a great charcoal type black/gray though.......
some of the colors I only used the paper, like River rock--and really liked it especially for masculine cards--but others I never bought or used.

I'm very curious about the smoky color! I do NOT like SU's black - it looks purple to me. So hopefully their Smoky Slate will be rich and dark.

Default Card 101 on day 101

Ok, one of my best friends also worked with me in the library for 20+ plus years. I had her kids in my classroom before I switched to library....Except that she is 4 to 5 inches taller than I am and colors her hair, we could be twins----and to top it off her April birthday is 2 days before mine. SOOOOOOOOOOO---Saturday is her birthday and last night in a fit of inspiration--the idea for this card came to me--using one of the new sentiments I just received from Art Impressions.....so if buying stamps doesn't count,,,,then this card was made from my stash---
Enjoy! NOTE: The joke is on the cupcakes.....

Hello! I have neglected posting here. I didn't get my 100 unique designs done, but don't think I failed, since I used a ton of my stash in 300+ cards.....in fact I will show you a few from this week. Also, I have some more done, but they are for upcoming DT responsibilities.
This is for a swap...made six

Bermuda Bay is ok but they took River Rock-----and whatever the others are....I hope the Smoky Slate is a great charcoal type black/gray though.......
some of the colors I only used the paper, like River rock--and really liked it especially for masculine cards--but others I never bought or used.
UGH! I FINALLY got my SU! cardstock sorted Tuesday. I have really old sets of the mini ink pads and I sorted all of my cardstock into groups by those and added newer colors to the appropriate group. I pulled out all of the cardstock that I do not have any ink to match whether it is ink pad, marker or roller cartridge and it is going in the sale pile. Pulled all the ribbon that I do not have anything else to match. Got rid of all the in-color stuff that I do not have ink pads to match, that was a big pile. Got rid of EVERYTHING Apricot Appeal just becuase I really do not like the color. Called my SU! demo to order River Rock and Pretty in Pink cardstock because I have ink and markers and really like those colors.

I decided a long time ago that I can not worry about whether what I am using is current or not. I don't have the time or care what is current or not unless it is a color I like and I won't be able to get it and I can not afford to keep replacing everything every couple of years. I don't use what I have enough to make it worth doing that. I have two brand new ink pads that I do not have cardstock to match and they are on the discontinued list so they are going.

I agree Pansy those are colors I love and can't believe they are getting rid of them. I hope the new gray is a good color.

Great! 3 of the colors I use the most and they are going away. It gets so frustrating to keep up with the yearly color changes, quite frankly.
Well, there is my SU yearly changes rant ... onto some fun news!!!

I am into my 100 cards/100 days. I have 8 done so far and hopefully will get to do about 5 more later today. 92 to go.
Thought you would like to see what I came up with...

All Occasion Card. Will stamp the appropriate greeting on the front when I need it:
100 Cards in 100 Days... Just the beginning! by MomToLissa - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Mother's Day Card for my Mom and MIL:
100 Cards in 100 Days... Just the beginning! by MomToLissa - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Watercolored All Occasion Card:
100 Cards in 100 Days... Just the beginning! by MomToLissa - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I did 8 cards springboarding off these 3 designs. My goal this time around is two-fold:
--finish 100 cards. period. (that will be a feat lol)

--Use only supplies I have on-hand. (another feat)

Hope you girls have been well. Crazy busy here but I wanted to at least show you what I have been up to.

TGIF!!!

Money Saver Supplies used . . .

As for using up supplies - I was surprised how much card stock scraps I used. My scrap bin is half of what it was. I hit my embellishment stash more than usual so that was good. I used up some ribbon and even opened up some paper pads I seemed to be hoarding. Inked up a few stamps that had never seen ink. Celebrated by buying 3 new embossing folders and a couple of packages of black cardstock (thanks to Jeanette and her layering); Michael's had it on sale $2 for a pk of 50 sheets.

I love the inspiration from the cards you ladies posted and as April said the pats on the back and encouragement helped keep me going.

Keep up the good work ladies, I'll be checking in to see your progress.

Can you say pale? I received my stampin success demo magazine today and was so disappointed to see that Smoky Slate is a gray that is lighter than the Basic gray already in the color family. I wanted a rich charcoaly gray.


The Basic Black being purple is an on going problem Jeanette and with the move to the new firm foam pads,,,the ink doesn' dry well on white or vanilla CS. The company says they have sorta uncovered the problem and have decreased the tolerances in the cardstock as the variations seemed to cause some of the problems and have reformulated the ink too so hopefully it will be solved soon.
