At Last

At last I am having the chance to do a couple of challenge cards- having a day off today and am amazed at what I am getting through- some Christmas shopping done including the gift bags, dogs walked and brushed, washing on, tidied craft room, made a sympathy card and these two challenges done and its only the back of 2!!!
This one is for Daring CardMakers- a challenge I have not taken part in for a while just due to time but had to make time for this one which is SEPIA- a colour I just adore working with
But this is a nothing!!! its not a card but just a lump of chipboard so you are seeing it before it morphs into something else- it will either end up a calendar or the front cover of a notebook- what do you think it would suit best?
The next card is for Cute Card Thursday which is swirly girly and it comes in handy as I have a niece's birthday at the weekend so it serves a double purpose- away to pop it in the post now

Hope the rest of the day is as fruitful as I still have a ton of things to do including cleaning out the hamster- that will give Misty something to do too, she loves the chase it about in its ball and drool
And Anice over at Funky Hand is having another sale- a whopping 33% off everything so go on and treat yourself to an early pressie and remember you still have the rest of the month to enter the Get Funky monthly challenge
Hope you are having a fruitful day too

I can't wait to see what you make with the Sepia creation - it is so fab. And the other card is so cute too. thanks for Daring this week:)

Wow!!Allison you've been really busy.. I love both your creations but the Sepia one I think would be a fab cover for a photo/scrapbook album. It will look amazing whatever you do with it.
