Smile HCE04 ~ As Easy As 1, 2, 3!

I don't know about you but I am BUSY! Cookies to make, groceries to buy...a few gifts still to buy!


When thinking about a challenge for today, I remembered a birthday I need a card for and I noticed I didn't have a lot of time so I came up with a quick and simple challenge for you!

My challenge is to make a BIRTHDAY CARD with the following requirements:

1. One Piece of Designer Paper (if you don't have any you can make your own using stamps!)
2. Two Colors of Cardstock Only (not counting 1 neutral)
3. Use Three Punches on Your Card

*Use whatever stamps you like but RIBBON can be your ONLY embellishment...just cause it's my favorite

PLEASE USE KEYWORD HCE04 WHEN UPLOADING YOUR CARD

I hope you like my challenge and I hope it is quick and simple for you and maybe gets you a little ahead on your birthday card making!

Sounds like fun. Somewhere between baking and wrapping, maybe I will find time to stamp. Otherwise, I'm going to be doing some major catching up after Christmas! I haven't stamped a thing yet this week.

Love the sound of this, Jimmi, but with my dad staying my time is extra limited. I like the idea of having to use 3 punches (love my punches) so if I don't get to play along today I'll be back on the 26th! Or maybe even tomorrow, but there's a lot to do tomorrow!

I made a card this morning on which there was a comment that it might fit this challenge -- IF Nestabilities die cuts count as punches? Do they?

Oops! NOW I read the thread -- my nesties count. Here's my Birthday Roses.

Here's my birthday card. Sorry, but I realized after the fact that I used an extra embellishment. I'm so sorry! I was just so excited about using the ring of bling on it that I totally spaced the requirements. Care to see my card? http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=87307

Hey, Jimmi! I love your challenge idea, but I'm probably not going to be able to do anything with it until next week, I'm afraid. Maybe with a little luck I'll be able to carve out some time tomorrow...

Oh well, it's a good thing there is no time restraint on these holiday challenges!
