365 Cards - Day 360 - Good News & D2D Shape Up challenge

Welcome to another wonderful Wednesday at 365 Cards! {Gasp} I just realized this is the last Wednesday of the 365 Cards year! Wow, where did the time go?!? Well, I had so much fun this year and I hope the next one is even more fun...but you know Pam...we never know what's up her sleeve! ;)

So here's my last creation for the year. Pam went easy on me this time and gave us an "Imagine This: challenge. This time it's "Good News"! As with all Imagine This challenges...you can use the words or just be inspired it. I went a little literal on my interpretation...at least on the front!
And I got a little funny on the inside:
I also went a little different and used the Molly image from Guylou's Inimitability Online Store on the inside with the sentiment! Seems like I heard this saying from somewhere but I'm not sure where! And I think it's the best news ever!

Here's the other challenges I was inspired for this one:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - Birthday Wishes
2. Cooking It Up With Katie - a little blue, few buttons, some bling
3. Cupcake Craft Challenges - Cake &/or ice cream
4. Flourishes - birthday
5. For Fun Challenges - Happy Birthday
6. Incy Wincy Designs - punches/dies
7. Meljens Design Team and Challenge - happy birthday
8. One Stop Craft Challenge - birthday card + cake
9. Scrap-Creations - birthday cards
10. SEW MANY CHALLENGES - sketch

And lastly here's my creation for the D2D Card Ideas challenge this week. The challenge this week is to "Create any Christmas/Winter card making a SHAPED card (no squares or rectangles allowed)"
I've actually had this idea in my head for awhile and finally got around to creating it! I took Faith's Cocoa image and enlarged it to about 5.5" square. I paper pieced it with Cosmo Cricket paper, punched a hole for the candy cane and tied a tag/ribbons/buttons to the handle! Here's the inside
Pretty simple!
Here's some other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. Craft Us Crazy - winter
2. digital tuesday challenge - punches: the tag was made from punches
3. Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - Sweet Treats (use something edible on the project): The candy cane and hot chocolate are both edible!
4. I Did it Creations Challenge - Anything goes
5. One Stitch At A Time Challenge - no square cards
6. Pixie Dust Studio Pixie Challenge - don't be square

Well, I hope you had a wonderful year at 365 Cards and I can't wait to see your "good news" and "shape up" cards!
Aloha,

WooHoo! A birthday card for your dear mother! First, it the cherry looking ME paper and then hearing I can eat all the cake I want on my birthday is the 'most' amazing news ever!!! Especially after my annual physical at my Dr. this week, digital scales don't lie ya' know :(

And love the cup of hot chocolate, my favorite relaxing drink during the cold, cold weather we have had. (BTW - St. Louis is having icy road conditions this morning, then the temp hits 50 this afternoon???)

Uhmmm, back to the cards,love your coloring on the good news card and the paper piecing is excellent on the cup. You are so good!

well, gotta get ready for school, no icy roads to the south today. Have a great day...

Love, SAM aka MOM
