I think I've now caught up!

October 11th  challenge was to make a card using these colours :-

The card I made was very quick and simple (A one layer card) as short of time...

The week before that was a sketch. Sorry ladies but the sketch doesn't do it for me so I've made a card and will bin it as its horrid!

Then the last week of September stash challenge was to use Diamonds & Pearls. I use d diamonds only.

 Then onto this weeks challenge:-
A card which went completely wrong! I went with it anyway....a stamping disaster and rescued in a way I'm not happy with so another card for the bin no doubt!


  1. Pat - I am so impressed that you've caught up with the previous challenges. I think they are all great - I particularly like the one layer snowflake card. Moving to your card for this week's challenge - I really can't see that it's a disaster. I think it's super - I like the clean, simple layout and the way you've used the enamel dots. Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week!

  2. Oftentimes we crafters are our own harshest critics, so I can understand how you might feel disappointed in your work - but truly, Pat, these cards all turned out very nicely! (I'll be honest - I struggled with that sketch at first, too.) For this week's card, I like how you've embellished the stars with the enamel dots. It looks like you used Naturals cardstock for the main focal panel, which gives nice subtle texture to the card as well as gives the diagonal lines a bit of the grungy look that's so on trend now.
    Thanks so much for sharing all your cards with us at 52{C}CT! I always enjoy seeing your work. :)

  3. Noo. Don't bin them. Put them away and come back to them. They'll have improved! I like the snowflake cards And I like the simplicityof the last one.

  4. Wow, hats off to you for catching up with all those challenges! I really like the sketch card, its much too nice to bin, perhaps you can add something now which will make you happier with it. I will admit that some of mine end up in the bin though! This week's card is NOT a bin card, it's simple, elegant and the enamel dots are perfect accents on your stars. Thanks for supporting us and playing along with every challenge at 52 CCT. Look forward to seeing this week's card ;)
