The first one is the Birthday Challenge from My Pink Stamper. The challenge is to make something "birthday." So I made a card, well, two cards. My nephew is turning eight in a couple of weeks so I made one for him, and as I was going through my scrap paper I found myself putting the second one together.
Now onto the second challenge. It is the Emboss It challenge by Peachy Keen Stamps, and it was to create a card or layout using some type of embossing technique. I used "dry" embossing.
So, I know that I have not perfected my technique for anything yet, but I am having so much fun doing all of this crafting. I'm discovering a whole new world! = )
