House of Cards February Challenge

Hello everyone!

I hope you had a great weekend!  It was in the 70's here, and I could not have been happier.  I got up early on Saturday and cleaned my house, so that I could try to spend the rest of the weekend outdoors.  I went to the local Farmers Market, went for a walk, and attended a BBQ at a coworkers house.  Gosh it was a great evening for a BBQ.  On Sunday, I went to church and for another walk before I decided to create a few things.  In all, it was a great weekend, and I'm feeling refreshed.

Today is the first of February.  This means there is a new House of Cards challenge posted.  I'm happy to be settled and back into creating for HOC again.  This month our challenge is to create shaped cards.

Here is the card I created.

I wanted to do something more on the CAS side again, but my card didn't exactly turn out that way, I don't think.  I did try to keep most of the white space, and eliminate a ton of embellishments.  In all, it's a very cute card, and I know just the person to send it to.  I hope she likes it.  I was excited to combine the following challenges in my card.

Addicted to CAS Challenge #80:  Red
Simon's Wednesday Challenge:  Anything Goes
Inkspirational Challenge #101:  Inspiration Photo (I was inspired by the love theme)
Just Us Girls Challenge #328:  Tic Tac Toe (I chose 3 layers, Flowers & Sequins)

That's all for me today.  I hope you'll head over to the HOC blog to see everyone's cards for this month.  They're pretty fabulous.  Hopefully you'll get to play along with us this month too.  We'd love to have you join us!  Have a wonderful week friends!
