Double Slider Card

In the month of December, my SU Club does a card exchange.  This year I struggled a lot with what to make for my card.  The ladies there expect miracles from me.  It took me weeks to come up with an idea.  In the mean time, I have be watching lots of videos on how to make paper are some cool flowers out there.  In the end I came up with this card, which took me many, many hours to make.  I made 14 of these cards.

I had my brother take the pictures...that's why they are so artistic.

Supplies: I can't find my supply list...I used a whole lot of things for this one.

The Outlawz Sunday CAS

This week for The Outlawz Sunday CAS challenge we had to make a card that used our favorite patterned paper.  I'm sure most people are like me and can't pick a dozen favorite patterned papers, let alone one favorite.  Then I tried to decide which was my favorite paper company, but I like so many.  So, I decided that I would just make a card using up some scraps from a recent project...and I really liked that paper.

Toonie Thursday

Today I went by my LSS (Scrapbooker's Paradise) in hopes for picking up the Tim Holtz Winter ink collection.  I was super excited to see they had restocked their supply.  While I was there I took the Toonie Thursday make and take.  The instructor (Viola) always has such neat things to make and try.  I will definitely trying to do this one on my own.  I know she used the Sizzix Snowflake die, but I'm wondering if I can cut something on my Cricut.
