I sure hope you are ready and have a little time to sit and look. This is going to be another long post. I have 5 yes I said 5 365 cards post, and one for Pat at Southern Breezes. I won't talk much, just post the pictures.
Monday was to use weaving:

Tuesday was to use cross stitch:
It is hard to see the cross stitches, but where the little gold seed beads are, I done the first stitch of the cross then threaded a little bead on the second stitch. But you can not see it very well.

Wednesday was to let Denim be your inspiration:

My son Chris' Birthday is on Monday, I thought I would give him this card, since he does like denim shirts. It needed to be a lighter shade, but already had then one cut out. I faux stitched around the color and on the button placket. I put the collar and placket on with foam dots. I used little studs and my cropodile to sit them.
Thursday you were to use 5 things:
I made 6 of these. 2 of each kind. I needed a little B/D gift, so I incorporated that into the challenge.

Friday was in the shadows:

I cut the branch out using my Cricut. I used the shadow feature to cut the bottom branch. I used the Nestability to cut my frame, and used foam dots to lift up the frame and the branch.

Pat's Saturday Night challenge was to use dimension. So this will qualify for that too. Thanks Pat and Pam for all the work you do to make the challenges possible. If you see some typos and such, it is because Flossie Mae insisted on helping me tonight.

Great cards! Man I forgot about the shadow feature on the Cricut - I totally bombed on this challenge! I really love the sets you put together - did you color the stamp? It is so vibrant looking.

How did you find time to get all these done if you were out all day? They are all so nice! I can't even pick a favorite!
Now post the pictures from the lake from today!
