I have a problem – a really big problem. Since I discovered card challenges and found out that I like doing them – I found out I really like them but there are more challenges than I can keep up with. I want to do them all and I’m finding out I can’t keep up with all of them. How do I decide which ones to do and which ones not to do? I like them all. Oh dear! The other day I tried to do all the challenges I had so that I wouldn’t have any waiting on me to do. Well as you remember I had a couple days where I had several cards. – where I was trying to get all of them done. Unfortunately on those two days alone I added several more challenges to my list. Now it is really long again. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad – I just know it’s a lot of challenges. How do I decide which ones to do?

While I try and figure out my dilemma – I do have two more cards for you today. 🙂

  1. Wow! Great cards! It is hard to find the time to participate in all of the challenges that you want to do, isn’t it? I love how you stamped directly onto the washi tape. I hadn’t thought to try that and it creates such a cool effect. Your ornament card is beautiful. I love all of the silver! Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday!

    • Thank you Marla. I actually embossed the washi tape. I really thought it was going to curl up and melt, but it didn’t. 🙂 I’ve been watching people do challenges for quite some time and decided to try them – now I’m hooked. You’re right – it’shard to find the time to do all I want. Have a great weekend.

  2. Cynthia, what an elegant Christmas card! I love the trio of silver ribbon accents. All of the shimmer and shine really pops off of the Pool Party background. Thank you so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! 🙂

  3. Neat idea to heat emboss right onto the washi tape! Totally going to try that out! It’s a great card with all the fun patterns behind the flower silhouette! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday! Hope you can find time to keep doing challenges!

  4. I love how you stamped on the Washi Tape using the black ink! It looks so pretty! Thanks so much for joining us at Fab Friday.
