White on White...It's a blizzard!

Aloooooha! I guess with all the snow on the mainland and other places, many were inspired to offer "White on White (except for the image)" challenges! Not sure I've ever made a card with just white but it was fun! This is using this week's D2D image (if you didn't get it free, you can find it in Faith's store). Here's a picture of the inside...

And here's the challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Trifold card with Tag Insert
2. CCEE Stampers - White on white card
3. CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS - buttons & bows
4. Digi Doodle Shop's Best - swirls: used the d'vine embossing folder
5. Double Dutch - all white
6. fun with shapes and more - snow/ice: the image is cut out and layered with nesties
7. Incy Wincy Designs - Winter Wonderland but no Christmas cards
8. Stamp Something - Winter theme
9. The Corrosive Challenge Blog!! - button it up: I layered two buttons on the center of my bow and topped with a faux "snowball" brad
10. The Shabby Tea Room - Winter theme
11. Wags ‘n Whiskers - White

Thanks for stopping by and stay warm wherever you are!

365 Cards - Day 332 - This and That & D2D Super Valentine!

Welcome to another wonderful Wednesday at 365 Cards!! Today's challenge is a lot of this and a little of that...the this being "yellow" and the that being "cheer someone up". I used the super cute bulldog image and sentiment from Digis With Attitude. And to get the full challenge met, I added the sentiment on the inside too!
And here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. CardPatterns - sketch
2. Crafty Creations Challenges - Heat it up: This sunny yellow color warms me up!
3. Drunken Stampers - Sunshine
4. My Time To Craft Challenge - emboss, emboss, emboss: although I couldn't get it to show up in the picture, the bottom white edge is embossed with a sizzix circle folder...
5. Pollycraft Monday Challenge - black, white + 1 color: well I guess I've got two other colors with the brown dog and yellow, but I wasn't counting the image colors
6. Raise The Bar - N.E.W. (Nestie, Embellishments, white)
7. Some Odd Girl Challenge blog - embossing: see above
8. Stamps R Us - animal
9. The Res-Q-Challenge - Dry embossing: see above
10. There's Magic In The Air - tic tac toe: I used "something punched," "ribbon" and "bling"...well a little bit of bling in that rhinestone brad.

I also have a card using a Designed2Delight image. Every once in awhile I like to make supersized shaped cards from a single image and Kaela's Valentine image was perfect for this!! I paper pieced it with shimmery s.e.i paper and although I couldn't get a good pic of the inside, it says "Happy Valentine's Day".
Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - Valentine creations
2. Creative Inspirations Challenge - celebrate: celebrating valentine's day with this one
3. Delightful challenges - Celebration
4. Hand Stamped Sentiments  - hearts
5. INKY IMPRESSIONS CHALLENGES - tag it: gotta a little tag on this one
