OWH ODBD scallop challenge; Feb recap

Hello! It's the first Saturday of the month and that means the Our Daily Bread Challenge for OWH! For every 25 cards linked; ODBD will cover the cost of mailing a box overseas (limit of 2 boxes). 

The challenge this month is to use scallops on a card. The mother's day deadline is quickly approaching, so I've been making 'mom' cards. (Truth - I very rarely make ANY 'happy x day' cards; I make generic ones so they can be used longer.)

Basic Grey Eva paper; Gina K card stock
Ali Edwards for TT sentiment, Worn Lipstick ink and edge punch

And a quick February recap. I've started a silly goal of saving my ATG rolls to see how many I use in a month:
Only 6! January was 10.
I only made these two lonely Christmas cards (and I made them on Thursday, LOL!) but I made kits to make another nine or so. I just need to assemble them.

Authentique scraps, Hero Arts sentiment

Thank you for visiting me today. Come back tomorrow; there's more awesomeness in store and a melt-your-heart and make-you-cry ministry to learn about.

  1. Your card is so lovely! Great color combination and that mother stamp is perfect. I tend to make more mother and father general cards, as well. Too funny that you are saving empty ATG rolls to see how many you use every month. Maybe January's cards had more layers. :)

  2. I like the way the scallops in the oval and edging pull the card together. Beautiful color choices! Mary

  3. Your card is simply elegant- I love the papers and the softness of the card! And that is a neat way to keep track of your adhesive! 6 is a lot- there is a lot on those rolls- 10 is just wild! You are a card making machine! And way to go on Christmas cards! very impressive- I have not done ANY- but making kits is a great idea!
