I'm Back...

... I hope you enjoyed my Year In Review post, that was on my blog this morning. But I'm back for a second blog post today. Why? Because I decided to participate in the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge on SCS. (My friend Pansy is encouraging everyone to do so, and I didn't want to miss the fun. LOL!)

The idea is to make a card every day for 100 days - without buying anything. Use what you have! (If you run out of adhesive, you can buy that, but otherwise, no shopping allowed.)

Truthfully, I have enough STUFF to make a million cards... so I can do this. ;)

Here's my first card:

I'm embarrassed to say I've had this Penny Black stamp set for quite some time - and it has never seen ink before today. In fact, it was adhered pretty tight to the plastic packaging. I wasn't sure I was going to get it loose without tearing the clear stamp. UGH!

Here's the inside:

I decided to go with a birthday card, since I need to get some BRAK birthday cards in the mail and have gotten quite low in my stash.

I sure hope I did Pansy proud.

Image & Sentiment: Penny Black Paint the Town
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx, and Copic Markers
Cardstock: Recollections Black and Stampin' UP! Crushed Curry
Designer Papers: from my scrap file
Embellishments: scrap of black grosgrain ribbon and Michael's rhinestones

I think you did Pansy plenty proud!! Such bright and fun colors, love the balloons! And the plaid DP - oh my, how pretty!
Cute, fun little birthday kitty and fun sentiment to match. Great job on card #1.

What a great card - just fabulous Jeanette. I think I could do the challenge with the supplies I have, but the time factor would be an issue :-).

Cute card--I love how the upper rounded corner of the image mirrors that of the card base.
