Woo hoo - I did it!! Cards 94-100

YAY!!!!! I just HAD to start with card 100 because I am so happy about it!! I made this card and then on the back of it I listed things that I have learned by doing this challenge, and I would like to share them with you:

1) I am allowed to be proud of myself
2) I am capable of meeting a challenge head on and accomplishing it, no matter how insurmountable it may seem
3) Faced with a blank slate, I can create something wonderful
4) There are fabulous people that care about me and support me - thank you so so much

Here is card 94 - just some watercolor crayons and flowers

Collage with some lace and a button - on November 7th I am starting another collage class, so stay tuned!

A quick card using materials I had left over from an altered book spread I did.

Chris and I went to the Cape May Zoo a week ago and I took this picture of the bird (the little bugger was FAST and I took many shots trying to get his face!). Cut him out and dressed him up with some tulle wings :-)

I like the way this one turned out, with the arch and the fringe and the stamp!

For the background of this card, I used a lovely piece of paper that my friend Su sent me from Hawaii - - isn't it nice?

Tomorrow I start a month long challenge to create a piece of art every day - no limitations on size, materials, etc, so watch this spot for some interesting work.... and thanks so much for sticking with me through these 100 days!
