AOCC13--April
 
This is where you will post cards for the AOCC13 April. links to the challenges will be in post #3 of the main thread if you need a mojo boost

WHAT? Am I the first to post for April?!! Amazing!

I think I'll need 10 birthday cards for April, only one of which is for a guy. I will also need at least 4 for my Sunday School class ladies, and who knows how many get well or sympathy cards.

Here's my first one for April: CAS214 for Sharon

I have a lot of birthdays in April. Six females and two males! Two cards have already gone out.....one of them a photo card, so I won't be posting that one.

The following is not a birthday card, but fits the First of April challenge, so feature something that would be found in our favourite season....mine is summer and I have some little daisies on my card.

This isn't a birthday card, but just one that I'll send to a friend for no special reason.

Mix9 Construction for Sharon

Greywolf 04-02-2013 08:37 PM

I had to work my way through several challenges that I wanted to complete so it took me awhile to make a card for the YCDI challenge for week 13 - a "squashed" card. It was fun and quite easy although there are more complex variations. I rarely make square cards, but didn't want to try to do the math to make one in A2 size.

I'll use this for one of my April birthday cards.

Ok, I will do better this month!

I need 4 female birthday, 3 guy birthday, 1 little boy birthday, 1 baby, and 1 anniversary card. But I have several belateds I could use for my less than stellar last month and I'd love to make some just because/encouragement cards.

jan31 04-03-2013 10:35 PM

I have a wedding card and a tenth anniversary card for my DS2 and DiL for this month, Im quite pleased that i have finally finished them both so I will upload them later today.

Ksnurse 04-04-2013 04:08 AM

Yay girls...you are doing great...I don't have any events this month so am just gonna work on some extras for stash.

smadson 04-04-2013 05:36 PM

You girls have been busy! I am sending 2 out from my stash tomorrow!
But here is an encouragement card to send out. Need lots of them, lately.

My first two cards for April, One for Magdalenas 40th Birthday on 10th April, our son is whisking her off to Paris next weekend to celebrate so I was really pleased to be able to use the papers, the other for my DS2 and DIL, their 10th Anniversary.

I needed a birthday card by Sunday . . .

Ina, the Wedding card I made can be seen on the following web site, they have some other multi folds too.

yellowrose46 04-06-2013 10:13 AM

Jan, thank you so much. I already made one out of junk mail, just to have the measurements. This makes a gorgeous special occasion card!

jan31 04-06-2013 10:31 AM

Glad you like them Ina, I've used them so many times as they really do make special cards, look forward to seeing yours.

SageBrush 04-06-2013 06:09 PM

I actually made these two last month but, too busy to get them uploaded. I hope to have time to work on some challenges this weekend. This has been such a busy winter and I don't know why?! I'm running out of cards! :shock:
This was an easy, one-layer card. Masking strip

I have 2 family birthdays this week, my brother in law and nephew and as you will see from the themes of the cards the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. They both love "Fixing" things!!! I have used a very different thechnique for me. I attended a course towards the end of last year and have had a bit of fun practising what I learnt there.

Ina, you've probably started a craze now collecting yogurt pot lids to try your foil background technique.

yellowrose46 04-12-2013 03:04 AM

Someone commented on that card, wondering why in the world I would have saved a foil yogurt top :) Duh! I'm a pack rat, that's why!

jan31 04-12-2013 05:02 AM

Sorry don't we all save useless, I mean useful things, hoping to do something amazing with them, I carried plastic cartons all the way back from San Francisco, you know the ones that sliced ham comes in, they are just great to store the tiny bits I've cut with my dies and not used!!

auntangie 04-12-2013 09:36 AM

LOL! One man's trash is another man's treasure. We all have bits in our stashes that other people would wonder about. I have a stack of the plastic packaging Spellbinder's dies come in. I keep thinking I will try to emboss it or use it for die cuts.

jan31 04-12-2013 09:54 AM

Oh Angie, so do I keep the plastic packaging from my dies, just incase I make a window card!
But in my defence, one did come in useful, I package Magdalenas birthday card in one so my son could transport it safely in his hand luggage, he did make me laugh though as he looked at it and said, ok, what do I do with it? I had to explain that he should take it out the plastic before giving Magdalena the card.

Greywolf 04-12-2013 03:24 PM

Yep, I've got a stash of miscellaneous packaging material and other oddments that I keep "just in case" I can use it on a card. And every so often I do use some of it. Funny though - that when there is a challenge to use something like that, it's the one thing that I don't have. :(

I made a birthday card that I'll hand deliver because I don't like to mail anything bulky. I have a friend whose birthday is Sunday, so this is her card.

Rosy Birthday Rosette

I've been trying to keep up with gallery gazing and commenting, but it's hard to find the time to look at everything. Sorry if I've missed you!

Greywolf 04-12-2013 06:57 PM

I made another card for the "favorite season" challenge - for me that's fall.

Ksnurse 04-14-2013 01:47 PM

the challenge has been posted for April 15:

this should add some spring prettiness to the gallery

jan31 04-15-2013 06:15 AM

You may have seen the 40th birthday card in my gallery that I made for Magdalena, I said they were off to Paris to celebrate, well our romantic DS1 proposed, so this is the card Ive made for them.

These cards fit the challenge perfectly. Even though here in the Southern hemisphere we are heading for autumn, flower cards are still up there with my favourites, so I'll play.

Been gone for over a week. Missed being in my craft room. Maybe tonight I will do some more.

The above card was for April 15th challenge, also.

Here is another card for the challenge using spring flowers (however stamped them in black). I used the Straw blowing YCDI challenge for the bg.

Here is another card for April. I was playing around using up some scraps, and played with my Tim Holz die. Here is rosette.

I really was supposed to be cleaning my craft room!

Greywolf 04-18-2013 09:08 AM

I have such a hard time keeping up with what cards I've made, posted and mailed. But here are four more for April. Two for ladies in my S.S. class and two for the YCDI15 straw blowing technique.

Finally getting a chance to post something for the April 1st challenge. My favorite season is Summer and the butterflies on this card remind me of the sunshine and warmth of the season. Here is my card: Twisted Easel Butterflies

Greywolf 04-19-2013 06:34 PM

I needed to make some birthday cards for guys for the Card Ministry, so I used SC342 and made 8 of these.

Navy Monochrome Birthday

Greywolf 04-19-2013 09:38 PM

I've been busy making cards today, finally getting a little caught up with some challenges. I finally got a card made for last week's QFTD, Bon2stamp (Bonnie). I'll use this for a guy's birthday in about a week.

Friendly wolf for Bonnie
