Day 365 - Fond Farewell

This is the hardest post I've ever had to write, which is why it's taken me all day to sit down and write it.
 
This is the last challenge here at 365 Cards, and we want to celebrate 4 amazing years with you.
 
Today's challenge is called Fond Farewell because it really is one.  I have soooo enjoyed all the designers who have come and gone and inspired us with their talent.
 
We've had loyal participants who have compeleted all 365 challenges in a single year and then some. 
 
We have had wonderful and generous sponsors and I am grateful for every person who contributed something to this blog.
 
Today's challenge is to create a card with some sort of "goodbye" sentiment on it.
 
And Audrey has shared this one with us


So appropriate for New Year's Eve!


We have selected our favorites for the Designer Spotlight and I want to share some favorite cards from over the years.

I will start a separate post for this because it will be a long one.

Thank you for being a part of an experience that has been so special to me!

Day 362 - Playing With Sharp Objects

For this challenge, we want to see you use at least 2 "sharp" tools to create your card.
 
Anything counts as long as it's sharp.
 
Here's Ruth's card


Yep, it definitely takes a sharp tool to create something this intricate!
 
And you can read the details about her card {HERE}.
 
Last sketch of the year coming up tomorrow...

Day 361 - Silvery

Can ya tell I'm still feeling the holiday spirit with this challenge?
 
I'm looking for cards that use silver as the dominant color.  And I'm jumping in with my take on the challenge.


As always, I went CAS, and you can get the details on my blog.
 
Can you believe it, another 365 Cards year is wrapping up?

Day 360 - Anything Goes

Okay, this should not be a challenge at all, but I'm feeling the spirit of the season and want to just feel joyful.  For those of us who craft, I know we can find joy in the process of creating!
 
So your challenge is to create any card at all -- any theme.
 
Here's Michelle's card


This card makes me feel like celebrating!

Sometimes it is a challenge to create without any trigger, but I think we can all embrace this one.
