Crafty Gals Blog Hop

One of the great things that happened recently is that I joined the Crafty Gals Blog Group over at SCS.  Joining a blog group was something that I definitely wanted to do when I started this blog and I couldn't have joined a better group!  These ladies are WONDERFUL!!!  Of course once you check out their blogs you'll see that their work far surpasses mine but it's a way that I can be challenged to increase my crafting ability. 

Today is the day to post for January and the theme is "Anything Goes" which meant that we can share absolutely anything we are working on.  While I would love to say that I am working on a great ABC (anything but a card) project, my big project right now is trying to increase my personal card stash and complete the 100 cards in 100 days challenge.  I need the cards for a couple reasons:

  1. I make cards for Community Pregnancy Center (our local pregnancy center).  I make a various assortment of cards for them (Thank You, Birthday, Baby, Praying for You), but I cannot keep up with the need.
  2. Our "Angel of Grace" program at church - which is our version of Secret Sisters.  Last year I was completely out of my mind and took on FIVE!  This year I realized I had to scale back a bit - so I only have four.  LOL!!
So here are the cards that I made just this morning:

This card I used the sketch from this weeks Sketch Challenge over at SCS.  The image was one from my collection box and the papers were some left over from other projects.  I'm always trying to reuse stuff so the ribbon on this card is from a Bath & Body Works gift set I received for Christmas.

 
I love cats and had made a card like this one before and had cut out enough of the image to make several more - so I pulled out that card kit and made one this morning. 

 
Keeping in the pinks I made this card for Valentine's Day.  There is a sentiment on the inside along with a strip of the paper.

 
Lastly is a simple card but I thought the sentiment packed a big enough punch that it didn't need a lot more added to it. 

 
 
So now that I've posted my creations for the day, I'm off to see what everyone else has created.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a very blessed day!!!!

Zella! Oh my gosh! I love each and every one of your cards! They are fun, beautiful, and heart-warming. Is the tree with all the hearts a stamp? So glad to reconnect with you, my friend. You already blessed me!
