Wide Variety of Cards

Another busy day at the Easton house! I don't know WHAT I would do if I didn't create something each day?! Well maybe the ironing.....
This card was from today's SCS. We used Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and Cameo Coral. I wasn't sure I could pull anything nice off with these colours together but it turned out ok. It's always fun to see what the girls at SCS come up with for us!
Last night I was watching TV and everyone was sleeping so I stayed up and crafted a few Christmas cards. It's never too early to start right?! Every year my friends get a stash of homemade cards from me as a gift. Most of them get their Christmas gift quite early in December so they can use them! I also include other cards as well. Things for them to use throughout the year for various occasions. These cards used some DP from a local craft store and the SU! Festive Favourites Set. The tree brads are from Making Memories.

Today my sister, Jennifer, came back and we crafted the next few projects together. What fun! I had this DP that I said we NEEDED to make a Halloween card from. Her birthday is ON Halloween and yes I've always told her she was a wicked witch....rofl
I really like how these cards turned out!
Last week on SCS during the DTGD Challenges there was a challenge to use acetate. At the time I had none but was sure to pick some up last weekend! I've never made a card with it before and I did find it a little challenging, trying to figure out how to hide your tape and glue dots.
We just put the layers back to back on the front/inside and inside/back. Does that make sense? LOL The box was from last Wednesday's Tutorial on SCS. It is a 2, 5, 7, 10 box!
