Seems like I'm always coming from behind...

It was a rainy weekend here, so the hubs and I had a Dexter marathon and I didn't craft AT ALL! I didn't think this was possible... so here I am at midnight on Sunday getting last weeks cards done.
365 #168 Toile Well, this is something I know about. I worked in a fabric store for several years and actually sold this very print for several nurseries. I just found the picture online. I think I'll make some note cards like this. I wish I hadn't added the ribbon. I like the button though (Jenni Bowlin chipboard buttons).
365 #167 Gift
The challenge was to make this look like a wrapped gift. I think Pam said beautifully wrapped gift, but mine is just wrapped. I used Sass papers and CC ribbon. I'll fill out the heart tag when I decide where this is going.

365 #165 Shape Up
We had to make a star the dominant shape (it didn't have to be a star shaped card). I bought these shape card templates from the Cutting Cafe and then forgot about them. I love the star shape and thought it was perfect for my cousin that just went through a very difficult labor (she now has a beautiful baby girl to show for it). I wanted to recognize her and not just the baby, so this is for Jess! I used BG paper and a Sass sticker that I put on cs and pop dotted.

365 #164 Color Scheme

Well, I completed the challenge, but boy is this blah! The stitching got really wonky and overall this doesn't make me want to jump up and down. Oh, well! I almost forgot.... Sass polka dots. The blue filmstrip is from a Mackenzie Mae kit and the letters are Pink Paislee.

365 #163 Mask
I haven't done much masking. I generally don't like to get too messy. I did buy a bunch of Heidi Swapp masks on clearance, so I'm glad we had this challenge. I used the frame mask and my branch mask and the polka dot mask. This is a very sparkly card. I doused it in glimmer mist and used A LOT of my gold glitter pen.
Hope you enjoy the catch up!
