Chocolate Chip Cookies

CraftyColonel.blogspot.com for Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge #129 Club Scrap image
I made this card for the challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #129.  The challenge was "D is for diet."  The sentiment is from Club Scrap Bon Appettite kit (retired).  I had to make the cookie myself.  I thought the crumbs were a nice addition!

Cards in Envy Final Farewell Challenge

Yes -- sadly this is the final challenge for the Cards in Envy blog.  In honor of the lady who first started the Cards in Envy Challenge blog, Denise, we are using this sketch from the first challenge.



Here is my card which is a Valentine's Card.
I used the balloon image from the Club Scrap Up, Up and Away! kit (retired).  So show you love for all the years that Cards in Envy has been challenging you.  Link up one last card on our blog and say goodbye.

Cards in Envy Love Me or Love My Pet Challenge

My apologies to Cards in Envy readers looking for my blog post!  I posted my card for Sandy to post on the Cards in Envy blog but failed to do the blog post on my blog.  I guess I am getting "Old-timers" disease LOL!  So here is my card for the Love Me or Love My Pet Challenge.

CraftyColonel Donna Nuce for Cards in Envy challenge.  Impression Obessions stamp, Graphic 45 paper,
This Dog and Butterfly stamp from Impression Obsessions reminds me of my 16 year old Weimeraner.  He's a sleepy boy and if he was sitting outside some butterfly would certainly think he was a great place to rest.  I used Graphic 45 paper and sentiment.  Check out the other design team member and post a Love card or a Love my pet card for us to see on the Cards in Envy blog.  Be sure to read our annoucement at the top of the page about the very last challenge for the Cards in Envy challenge blog.

Happy Crafting!

B is for Books

The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge 126 is "B is for Books."  I have been following their challenge blog for awhile but this is the first time I decided to play along.  I used the Clup Scrap Ivy League kit to create my card.

CraftyColonel Donna Nuce for #SOSS B is for books.  Club Scrap Ivy League.

I think this would be a great graduation card for someone!  You can join the challenge over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers by clicking on the photo below.

Cards in Envy Santa Baby

Time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog.  Create a card that uses anything that makes you think of Santa.  Could be Santa's hat, belt, sleigh or Santa himself!  I decided to make a card with Santa.

This vintage Stampin'Up Santa worked well with the Tim Holtz Sizzix retro Merry Christmas die.  There's just a touch of bling on the Christmas tree and a rinestone on the i in Christmas!  Come on over to the Cards in Envy blog to see what the other design team members did and then link up your Santa cards!

Cards in Envy Fire or Rain

Time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy Blog.  We are looking for cards that show either Fire or Rain.  I loved this sentiment from the Club Scrap Firecracker Stamp Set.  I dug into another old Club Scrap Kit, Fire and Ice (retired) for some paper and ribbon for the card.

Cards in Envy Favorite Holiday

Time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog.  Create a card featuring ANY Holiday that's one of your favorites.  My favorite Holiday will always be Christmas!  This is similar to a card I made for the Denver Scrapbook Expo card swap we just had. 

CraftyColonel Donna Nuce for Cards in Envy Challenge, Christmas Card Stampin Up
I had planned on making a bunch of these cards but I ran out of this ribbon (acquired in the bargain bin after Christmas).  Of course I couldn't find any more of this ribbon and had to change up my Scrapbook Expo swap cards with different ribbon as I had to make 21 cards all the same!  This got me off my rear end to start making Christmas Cards.  
Hop on over to the Cards in Envy blog and share your favorite holiday cards (any holiday) with us.

Happy Crafting!
