Quick Post...

So, I didn't have to road trip with DH today, but we stayed quite busy until 3:30 when he left for Branson. I sat down and cranked out a couple of quick challenges, rather than to spend time worrying about his travels...



This first card is for 365 Cards and for Mojo Monday. As always, Mojo's challenge is the sketch, and the challenge today at 365 Cards is to use a monogram on your card. Well, believe it or not, I was a monogram-virgin until today!!! TRUE! I had never made a card with just a monogram on it ever, ever, ever!!! I kept it simple, stayed with the sketch, and used up a few scraps!

The second card is for the Cuttlebug Spot. This is my first time to play their challenge. The challenge was to make a card using the word "hot". Wowzers, that was a hard one!!! Anyway, I stamped up my Riley in his cute little car (he's a little "Hottie" you know...), and colored him with Kooh-I-Noor pencils and Tombow Markers, used a few scraps and a cuttlebug embossing folder, and whew....a tough one behind me!!!



Hope that you all had a perfect day, and wish you a good evening. DD and I are headed to a Pampered Chef party where I'm sure we will be pampered beyond belief!


Take care, be safe!

Both great cards! Great choice on combing Mojo and the 365. Love the colors.

I saw the cuttlebug challenge but I couldn't get out of my head how I work all year to keep the 3rd grade boys from referring to the girls as 'hotties'. Oh my!

Darling cards! The monogram is beautiful and that Riley IS a HOTTIE! Great job on the challenge, not an easy one I'll admit, but that's why we call it a challenge. LOL Thanks for joining us this week at The Cuttlebug Spot. Hope to see you again soon. xxD
