Did you know that this weekend is World Cardmaking Day? I didn't...but I'm informed that it is, and one of my cardmaking groups is celebrating all weekend long with special Challenges (and rewards). I'm blogging the cards as I get them made and my first entry is done already...

The first challenge I attempted was to make an entirely red-on-red card... no little bits and pieces of other colours sneaking in! It's a lot harder than it sounds because a lot of patterned paper is actually more than one colour, but I made two. The first is a Happy New Year card playing off the theme of the Chinese New Year, and the second is a romantic 'I love you' card with a butterfly. Here they are...


Full details are in my blog (of course) and I'll be blogging and posting all the other cards I make over the weekend in this thread.

PS. I just realised I forgot to link it! Here's the blog entry with the information... http://kajikit.blogspot.com/2009/10/ncd-challenge-1-make-entirely-red-card.html

Here's my next challenge - the envelope of Goodness. Everyone who signed up was mailed an envelope of card-making bits and pieces to use... I made three cards with mine and I still have a bunch left to play with later.
Here's the envelope -

And here are the three cards I made with it so far. Two landscape cards and one general one.

I was too busy making cards the rest of the weekend to post them... my grand total was 17 cards, covering 15 different challenge topics. I summed everything up in my blog and posted a complete list of challenges for anyone who's interested, but here is a photo of my finished card collection.
