PGCB Black & White Challenge.

Wow it has been awhile since I have been here!!! Flu season has been the worst that I can remember in a long time.  I always get my flu shot every year and usually if I get the flu, it's mild and I get over it quickly.  But not this year!!!!  I was hit by the bug just after the New Year's.  But it didn't seem to last long. But just when I thought I was better, it came back worse than ever.  And I have been dealing with it since then. It just seems to linger on forever.  This past weekend I slept for 4 days straight!!!!  So I'm hoping that is the end of it LOL

I thought maybe a little crafting might get me back on track.  And this challenge was perfect.  It has been such a long time since I had made any cards, and so that was what I decided to create.

Both cards are actually pretty simple and fast to create.

For my HAPPY BIRTHDAY card I cut out some letters on my Silhouette
using black cardstock, and backed them with some black & white patterned paper.
I stamped the little flowers and BIRTHDAY. 
And then I drew a little border with a black marker.

On my second card I cheated just a little, and 
 added a small amount of water colour, using the packaging technique, 
on a white background. Then I stamped the cute little fox and leaves, and 
"sending lots of love", with black STAZON ink.

Both cards took very little time to create, and I think they turned out pretty
darn cute.  Quick and easy........perfect I think for when you need 
a card in a hurry!!! 

Now, make sure you check out the Paper Girls Challenge Blog for lots more inspiration.

Thanks for stopping in,
