So, The Greeting Farm issued 12 challenges on New Year's Day and I had such big plans to do them all...Well, I managed to do 2 of them. And then I didn't get pictures taken of them in time to upload and enter the contest! Oh, Well, I had a lot of fun making them, which is why I do this card making thing anyway!
The first one is for Melyssa's Tag challenge. If you come here very often you might remember me talking about trying to use some of the much loved paper that I have been scared to use? Well, these tags came with the pack of Basic Grey Lilly Kate line. All of the tags were still there, almost all of the paper is whole...I am really working on this!! I turned Dress Me Anya into an Elf princess by using Amy's method of altering to wipe away a little section and draw some pointy ears. (Amy's tutorial is HERE.)

The other challenge card that I got done was Kadie's Sew Satisfying challenge - to use sewing on your card. The challenge actually said to use sewing in a " fun and/or surprising way" which really threw me, but then I decided I have never hand sewn on felt before (and now we can all see that my hand sewing skills are sadly lacking!) I punched the shapes using my Spellbinders flower dies - they did not always go all of the way through, even with a shim. Most only needed a few little snips with the scissors to finish them up, though.
