Meade Girls' Secret Sisters!

For the past 3 months or so, the Meade Girls have had another round of Secret Sisters.  We sent our "sister" a card each month and then "revealed" ourselves at our annual Christmas get-together.  This round, though, Amanda decided to shake things up a bit.  Each month, we had a challenge of sorts.

My secret sister was Jane and here are the cards I sent her:

For our September card, we had to use something recycled.  Here is my card to Jane using recycled green ribbon and rhinestones that I pulled off of 2 old cards:

The image is from Mo Manning and the sentiment is computer-generated.  Here is a close-up:

Our October "challenge" was to use something GOLD on our card.  Here's what I came up with:

I'm not sure who makes this digi-image but he sure is cute!

I used brushed gold cardstock for one of my layers, gold Stickles, gold lame ribbon, and the leaves have gold glitter along the edges.

There was no challenge for November so we were able to do and use whatever we wanted.  Jane's birthday just happened to be in November, so I created a birthday card for her.

I'm not sure who makes this cute little image (Mo Manning, maybe?) but I thought it was perfect to deliver Jane some loving birthday wishes!

This  sketch was our challenge for December:

...and here's my take on that sketch:

This was my reveal card for Jane.  I hope she liked it!  For this card, I used the Fabulous Friday Freebie image from Sassy Studio Designs called Trimming the Tree.  The card is 5 x 7".

Who was MY secret sister you ask?  Well, it was Paula and here are the fabulous cards she sent me:



The "theme" for October was to use gold on your card. When I came home from work on Halloween Day, this was hanging on my door knob!!

Here is the "package"- made of gold metallic cardstock. LOVE the little ghost and the googlie eyes!

Here is the cute little pumpkin card she had tucked inside:

...and inside she had all of these fabulous gold things- embossed paper, ribbons, gold cord and stars...  I just LOVE that embossed paper!!!


November was a "free" month meaning we didn't have a theme for our card.  My secret sister sent me this beautiful Thanksgiving card:

Finally, here is the card she gave me to "reveal" her identity:

She also included these little items- a pair of warm, fuzzy socks, a cute paper Ravens "ornament"tag, and a Snowman "tea lite".  How cute!!!

Here is the adorable little snowman all lit up.  I'm going to have to make some of these!!!!  Yeah, I probably should have taken him out of the cello bag before taking the pictures- oh, well...  :)

I loved every one of my cards!!  What a wonderful secret sister I had!!!  Thank you, Paula!
