The month of July

I have been extremely busy the last few weeks making cards on Ann's Paper Art Forum.
On the forum we have been playing a game where you are not allowed to say certain words.
The 4 words are known as banned words.
If we get caught saying any of these words we are asked to make a card.
Four of the cards were able to be used for private use and the other's were Secret Squirrel cards that we sent around the world.
We did have sooooooooooooo much fun.

My 1st punishment was to make two cards, using the same pattern which I selected. One was to be a Christmas card and  the other to be a Birthday card.
I have used pattern # a067 for my 1st punishment cards
The 1st card is a Birthday card, the 3d image is by Mattie.  I punched out a butterfly with my Martha Stewart corner punch and then cut it away, I have also used pearls and Hobbydots to embellish the card.
The 2nd card is a Christmas card and I have used a 3d image by Marieke's Design.




My 2nd punishment for the month was to make 2 Christmas cards using the same pattern.       
 I have used pattern # a325.
One was to be in Purple tones and the other in Blue and Gold.
   The 3d image that I have used on the cards are both by Marieke's Design.
I have also added embellishments to both cards.  On the 2nd card I have used Spellbinders Nesties to cut out the oval
