Thanks a Bunch

Hello Everyone,
Another card made from my scraps drawer. But this time I included a new to me image from Bugaboo Images called Flower Teddy. Isn’t he adorable?

07 29 Thanks a Bunch

I coloured in this adorable bear with my Copic markers. This card started with a sketch from Stella Says Sketch #712. And this is my 2nd creation with this sketch.

Stella Says 712

My card doesn’t match the sketch exactly but I do hope that it is still acceptable for the challenge. I was making this card away from my desk and didn’t have the sketch beside me and by the time I realized what had happened, it was too late. I still enjoyed the making of the card because I was able to dig into my scraps drawer again and be able to pull together another card from pieces that were just too big to throw away.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation. I appreciate all of the likes and comments that I get on my posts. Before you go as always I would like to leave you with this last thought.

I'm listening...

Until Next Time,

Scraps Birthday

Hello Everyone,
Yes, another card made from my scraps drawer. I am so happy to be working through this drawer. I thought that I would never find ways to use this and stuff from my stash. As with most of my cards, this one started out with this inspiration from a sketch. This time around it is Sketch Saturday #574.

And this is the card that I made using this as my starting point.

07 29 Butterfly Wishes

I need to admit that I almost threw this card in the bin several times – me and my cutter were not on the same page! I cut things wrong and those pieces are now in the bin. But I finally got it all together even though I didn’t follow my own measurements exactly I still thought that it followed the sketch.

Cupcake Celebrations

Hello Everyone,
I just love the sketch from Mojo Monday so much that I had to make another card. And this time everything on this card comes from my long lost bottom of the pile stash. You know that place where stuff goes and you don’t see it so you don’t use it. Well, I got sick of having all of this stuff that I had purchased but haven’t used yet. And this is the card that I made using the sketch.

Here is also the Mojo Monday #519 for you to look at.

This sketch is so much fun to play along with. I know that it won’t be the last time that I use this one. I didn’t do anything this time with the stars because I just couldn’t find anything suitable in my stash – yes I know I was shocked as well.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my creation. I hope that you will stop by another time; please consider leaving a like or/and a comment I really appreciate those. Before you leave my blog I would like to leave you with this final thought.

No Pattern

Hello Everyone,
I am here to share with you a card that I made with a mix of 2 challenges.
The first is one from Cute Card Thursday
NO PATTERNED PAPER!
and a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #513

TMS 513

When I read the challenge on Cute Card Thursday I was a little thrown because I am so used to using patterned paper on my projects. But then I thought about it a little and this is the card that I came up with.

07 27 Reindeer Christmas

So instead of using patterned paper, I used an embossing folder for the background. The panel on the left was made using bronze washi tape. The reindeer sticker is from my stash and has been sitting at the bottom of it for many a year so I am very happy to see it used. The sentiment circle came on the front of a card making magazine.

52CCT July Stash

Hello Everyone,

I am here for my last post as a hostess over on the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. Since it is the 4th week of the month it is time to choose between a Technique or a Stash Challenge. I chose to go with a Stash Challenge, and we won’t talk about how big those are … will we!

But the stash item I want you to dust off is

I know that I have a lot of ribbon in my stash and it doesn’t get used as often as it should. I don’t know why because I love that little something that it adds to a project.

And this is the card that I made with some of my ribbon

I got to also use one of the images that has been sitting in my done pile for a while. This cute little Elf is from Faery Ink. When I was colouring her in with my Prismacolour Pencils I decided to try multi-colour hair as I had never tried this before and I am quite happy with the results.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team work for the last hosting duties of this month. I will be back on the blog next week to announce the winner of the stash challenge. Please come on over to 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge and play along with the challenge. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought

With Sympathy

Hello Everyone,
These types of cards are still the hardest for me to create so when inspiration strikes I take it. The thing that started the inspiration was the lighthouse in the sunset. But the card as most of my card projects start with … a sketch. So this is the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketch #512.

TMS 512

And this is the card that came out from using that sketch.

07 21 With Sympathy

The papers that I used came from my stash I thought that they all worked with the main image.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation. I am happy to be creating again even if it isn’t constant. Each time that I am able to sit behind my craft desk I am grateful. Before you go I would like to leave you with this final thought for this post.

Moving on without people is the quietest and best revenge. Small things don't matter when someone is meant to be in your life. If small things ruin a relationship or friendship it was never real to begin with. Count it a belssing they were removed to make space for better....  Oh Boy have I found better! Love my boyfriend❤ love my friends❤ I am so very blessed

Until Next Time,

Moon Monsters?

Hello Everyone,
The card today is inspired by a card challenge and a world event. When I saw this sketch from Mojo Monday #519

I was watching a TV Documentary called “Chasing The Moon” about the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing. The round element and the stars started the creation of this card.

07 21 Moon Monsters

The wonderful cute monsters are from the set “Out of this World” by Uniquely Creative. I had them already sitting in my coloured image pile and knew that they were what this card needed to finish it off. These images were coloured in with my Prismacolour Pencils and I embossed the background with a star folder from Craft Concepts. The papers used are from a paper pack by Kasiercraft called “Stargazer”, I think that I will be getting a 2nd pack of this paper pack I love using it.

I want to thank you for stopping in and looking at my project. Please consider leaving a comment or a like before you go. I hope you will stop by again sometime. Now before you depart I would like to leave you with this last thought.
