Muse Challenge #91

Vote for your favourite entries from last week here before Tuesday at 8:00 am EDT.

It's the 4th week of the month and that means Guest Muse! This week our Muse is someone who has stormed onto the cardmaking scene fairly recently! We see her amazing work all over our little part of the blogosphere and her kind and generous comments make us smile!

Here's your Guest Muse for this week, Michele (i card everyone) Ferguson !


 I could not have been more pleased, honored, or surprised to receive an invitation to Guest Design for Muse this week!  Thank you so much, Ardyth! Remember, I'm the new kid on the blog.  So here I go! Fingers crossed!

I've been working diligently on my Christmas cards already.  I couldn't be the only one, right?  I make and send between 40-50 each year. I find I get really bored if I make even two of the same - but that's just me. Are you like that?

Going through my stash of holiday papers, I found a few single sheets that I purchased after-season.  Single sheets work well for me. I especially love the double-side ones.

So, here is my challenge to you for this week: find a single sheet of designer paper- I'd like holiday paper, but if you're not into it, choose any - and create a SET of three cards, each different, but sharing a theme!! 

I'm working with non-traditional colors for my set, you can use any color you'd like. My theme is die-cuts, and cream - instead of white. Here is one of my sets:



I do hope you have fun with this! I so look forward to seeing what/how you talented card-makers make!! 

Thanks again for inviting me, Ardyth! I love The Muse Card Club and enjoy playing along as often as I can! =]

  7. You pushed me out of my box, Michele. I have a big stash of decorative paper, but do you think I use it much?! I used to collect the stuff and now it just keeps my craft room from echoing. It was fun to look through it again...kind of like looking through old photo albums! ;) Thanks for a fun, challenging challenge! :)
