Running Catch up and card challenge

We seem to have a pattern for the New Year as well. Running catch up. LOL
 I have been working on my room for a month now and low and behold I am still not done. I have had a few set backs, a few sick days actually quite a few. A few more sick days as Hubby was sick. Then he was on vacation for 3 weeks. Yea, that is rough. I love him but sometimes. LOL
  I may have to put the room on a hold for a week to get some projects done. I have to do some touch up painting and create a few pieces that I am obligated to. I am certainly not giving up on getting it done though. I have to rearrange a wee bit and that is the hold up. I need hubby to help.

I asked my friend Tracy over at Tracystreasures  to do a monthly card challenge. I have a ton of stamps. I mean A LOT!!!!
This picture was taken after I got rid of half. Yes you read that right.
  So as you can see I need to use these and the paper I have. So reason for card challenge. Using what I have.  Plus I love sending cards :)
 So for the month of january
 we chose these things
File folder card
CC designs

Tracy nailed it. 

 So the card I received from Tracy is this one.. I stole this pic from her blog. I know but I didn't take a pic.
I love the red hair. Well ya know why. LOL  I have never colored red hair and I know Tracy is gonna make me one of these days. LOL I still need some of my copics and I think that is one of them.

Okay my card.

So My card is a file folder, it has sparkle and use of my stash but not a CC designs. UGH! You see I was convinced this was a CC designs when it is a stamping bella. I do not pay that much attention to brands sometimes. LOL I buy what I like. LOL
So I failed my own card challenge. LOL My first card challenge. LOL Oh well the inside is still cute. LOL

I did make another file folder card for a friends birthday
I loved how it turned out and the all the stuff is stash stuff. Which is very good.
These are the first projects for 2014 as well. That feels pretty good.

 Well I think the running catch up is done. Time for bed. have a great week.
