JB challenges

Today I've been making cards to improve my stock levels ready for having my sale for TEAR Fund. So I've tackled quite a few of the challenges on Just Bex.

August challenge 19: slip 'n' slide: 'Your challenge is to make a card featuring a slide mount - any colour, any size, decorated in any way you wish.'

This card is cut away on the top right corner:

Open:

August challenge 16: tropical turquoise and pretty pink: 'Your challenge is to create a card or a layout using a turquoise and pink colour scheme.' This is another card cut on the right top corner:

Open:

August challenge 20: fun with felt: 'Felt is a big trend in papercrafting at the moment, and felt flowers are very popular - so this challenge is to make a card using felt for something other than flowers!'. Well, I used a flower on each of the next two cards, but I also used another felt embellie on each:


August challenge 17: gorgeous gingham: 'Your challenge should you choose to accept it is to produce a card incorporating gingham this can be card, paper or ribbon...it`s up to you.' These are two quick children's cards:




August challenge 12: easy as 1, 2, 3: 'we need you to make a CARD or a LO with BIG NUMBERS.' I hope the '60' is big enough!

August template 1: three squares: 'a template for the card makers you know you can do WHAT YOU LIKE!! have fun.' This is a sample for some of my Christmas card packs. I rubber stamped quite a few of these squares a week or so ago, but until now hadn't started to actually use them on cards. This is the template:
And here is my card:

August challenge 9: 'button it': 'Cards, LO's or whatever you want for this challenge as long as you use buttons.' I've had these two yellow buttons for quite a long time and thought it was about time to find a use for them:

August challenge 13: 'carry on corrugating': 'Your challenge is to make a card using...............corrigated card.' I enjoyed doing this card - it's a bit different:


Friday night challenge 24 August: monogram madness: 'Your challenge is to make a card and include a monogram of any size.'

Having taken photos of clouds this morning for HS:MS, I couldn't resist taking these this evening:
