Happy NSD!

For the first time in years, I'm not at a crop on National Scrapbook Day.  I can still join in the fun and be a rebel by making cards today, though.  I made two for a couple of challenges.

Paula "broke" into the OWH site and challenged us to be a Rebel with a cause  today and make a card for one of the categories in need.  I made a Miss You themed card:
The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Year Round set.  This card is definitely a scrap card and it's something I make when I'm at the end of a 6x6 pad and all I've got left are strips.  I cut them into various widths and stick them onto a piece of paper, then trim it down to the size I want.  

My next card fits two challenges.  The first is the May ODBD  challenge, which is embossing.  I used a free SVG file from Short N Scrappy ( clock ) to cut out my main image.  Then I embossed it with antique gold embossing powder to give it an aged look:
The papers are from Tim Holtz.  This card also fits into this week's Cardz 4 Guyz challenge - Time.   

It's great to see everyone's cards today and I hope to see you all tomorrow for the weekly OWH sketch!


  1. Ohh these are both really nice Erika! I recognize a lot of the patterns in your first card.. I must have the same paper pads... and will have to remember this when they get down to just scraps. It came out great!
