Since I ended my term back in February as a designer for 365 Cards I've played along a few times but it's been since before I started as a DT that I've done a whole week of challenges at 365 Cards. Well, this weekend I was motivated to get my card making groove on and created SEVEN cards for all the challenges this past week at 365 Cards. Of course, I also included inspiration from some other challenges so I'll list those below the pictures too.

OMG! YOU SUPER DUPER CARD MAKER! You are the queen of card design. Each one has so many details that it took me forever to carefully look at everything you did (OK the CAS cards still had some detail!) Love them. And to think you'll have a l-O-n-g week-end coming up. Uhm, wonder if you could make 10, or maybe 20 cards. We'll all be watching to see your next card making marathon...Love, SAM aka MOM

Teresa Kline said...

Patti J said...

Woweeeee! Kim, it is SO good to see you creating again! I kept thinking, 'Well, I'll tell her that this is my favorite', then there would be one that I loved even more! They are all wonderful! Thanks for sharing :) Looking forward to your next burst of mojo!!!

inkypinkies said...

Wow, you are certainly a prolific card maker. I love all of these! (Day 174 is particularly cool, love that fold!) Great job with the herringbone technique, and I love the sentiment on that one. Thanks for playing with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments! Erika
