Playing with Challenges

Since today's a snow (well, really ice) day, I'm home with an unexpected day off. I should clean, but heading to my scrapbook room to try a few challenges sounded like a lot more fun. Here's what I made this morning:

My SBS-8 sister, Su, created a blog with regular SU challenges, so this one meets her Valentine, no pink, no red challenge. (It worked well, because my husband's favorite colors are orange and blue.)I also made a card for the challenge at Sketch This: Cards, which is based on a sketch. (Check it out!) It's different for me, even though it has flowers, and I like the color combination. It's the perfect card for an old friend of mine who's been having a hard time, so I'm putting it in the mail to her today.

The last card I made meets a challenge from Daring Cardmakers to follow the sketch on their page. I realized I forgot a thank you note from Christmas, so this was will also be written and sent today. Oops!

The last thing I have to share is a mailbox I made the other day for my hubby. Snoopy is his favorite cartoon character, and since I filled the mailbox with caramel dove candies, I hope he likes it!

You've used your day well, fabulous cards. Seeing snoopy reminds me how when I met my hubby he had loads of paperbacks of Snoopy and the gang.
