It's been about a year and a half since I posted a card. I've decided it's time to get back to updating my record of the cards I've made. I'm posting them under the dates when the card was first posted to Splitcoast Stampers.

Most of the color combinations are due to my participation in the Splitcoast Color Challenges each week. I am honored to be on the team, and have learned which combos sing to me, and which I won't bother with again! Sadly, this first card is in the latter group. The stamp was designed by Helen Dardik. I love the image, but orange has never been a favorite color for me. The colors are Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party and Basic Black, with an option for adding green, which I did! Stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink and colored with Zig Real Brush Clean Color Markers.

This is the first card I made with the stamps from my new "Stamp of Approval" box. The colors are Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Tranquil Tide.

I don't usually "do" Halloween, but when My Favorite Things came out with this set, I found it irresistlble. I love making shaker cards!

This card was made with the stamp and die set, "Courage," which was sold to raise money for breast cancer research. The colors are Berry Burst, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz.

Occasionally, Splitcoast has a week-long series of challenges. I never seem to find time to make lots of cards. Usually, one per week for the Color Challenge. Thank goodness for that obligation, or I might not even make that many. Anyway, I made this quickie card for a challenge, to make an interactive birthday card.

This next card was posted the same day, but for a different challenge. This time we were supposed to use up scraps of patterned paper. I think the front is excessively busy, but I do like the two-layer "Thanks" die cuts.

Thanks
