Simple, Quick and Easy!

Hello my crafty blogging friends! These are just some quick and simple cards that I have made for some recent challenges. They worked up fast and quick and won't require a bank loan for postage to mail them! Mailing those cards with all the lumpy embellies can be quite expensive at times!

This first card (above) was made for two challenges. The first for a challenge on CardMakers Card Swaps forum requiring us to use newsprint on our card. The second challenge was hosted on ISC and the challenge was to use the color golden yellow on your card.

The next three cards were made for three different challenges for the recent online crop, "Summers End" on the CardMakers Card Swap forum. The first card was for a challenge that required you to follow a sketch.

This next card was for a challenge that asked you to make a card showing something you would see on a beach.

My last card was for a challenge that was to make a card using all white. I love all white cards. They can be so elegant looking.

If you would like to see all the challenges that were in the crop and everyone's creations, you can check them out HERE. The next crop will be coming up in November but if you can't wait till then....there will be a mini one on October 1st for World Cardmaking Day! Hope you will check it out and join in on the fun.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love them all - so pretty and simple - my favorite style. My favorite is the black and white lighthouse. Very, very nice!

I hear you about the postage costs for lumpy cards. The look great in photos, but getting them to the recipients in photo-shoot shape is something I am not totally confident about.

All of your cards are fabulous, Susan. I think my favorite is the lighthouse. It is so serene and, for me, homey because I live on an island.


PS - I have a draw for digital scrapbook software on my blog right now until the 16th.

I was struck by the lighthouse too, but they are all beautiful!
