Michael Strong Thank you card challenge entry

I was thinking about what card to do for the Michael Strong yahoo group November challenge.  You need to make up a Thank you card.  I tried to use up some designer paper I had made up and came up with this:

It's a pretty simple card.  But since I already had the background made up I didn't feel like I put enough effort into it.

Then I thought of another idea which was really simple.  Here is is:

It has a googly eye!  Can you see it?

But again this wasn't enough work for me.  For some reason I fell I have to spend hours on a card to make it look nice.  I've got to get over that.  Anyhow here's my entry:

Which is actually a simple card but looks a lot more complex than the others.  It uses the Burnished Watercolour which is my most favourite technique of all!

Hey, a second post!  Who knew I'd do that?

Michael Strong Blog Hop

Today is the Michael Strong Blog Hop featuring the Christmas Trees stamp set!

Plus it's the worldwide premiere of my blog!  So much to celebrate I couldn't do it with just one thing alone.  So I made a few...

For this project I used the Burnished Watercolour technique to make my own designer paper for this Christmas scrapbook page.

For this project I used the mini milk carton from Stampin Up! to create boxes full of candy for the kids at Christmas.

And last but not least here is a simple Christmas card.

Hope you enjoyed the projects I made.   Please leave a comment and if you make a comment on every one of the blogs in our blog hop you get a chance to win a new Michael Strong stamp set!
