52CCT October Theme Challenge

Hello everyone, today it is the 3rd week in October which means it is theme time over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. And Branka has chosen this theme for all of us to play along with …

03 Theme

I must admit that I don’t have a lot of snowmen in my collection of stamps – not even digi! So I found this image in the Printmaster program that I have on my computer and I went with this one.

52CCT 10 2019 wk3 Theme

I thought that it was quite a cute image with the snowmen and lady singing. The sentiment I actually made up myself and used my computer to put it onto the image before printing.  For the placement of everything I used a sketch from Operation Write Home #122

Well Made Anniversary

Hello everyone, today I am here to share with you a card that I have made for a wonderful couple that I know. I tried to make a card that would suit both of them because they like different things.

10 13 Well Made Anniversary

Can you tell what they love to do? This card started with a sketch inspiration from Tuesday Morning Sketches #524. It stumped me for a while and the card doesn’t follow this sketch …

… 100% but I am happy with how it turned out. I definitely didn’t get as many strips of patterned paper in the background, my calculations went wrong but I still liked how many I got. And I couldn’t undo because I was sticking as I was cutting so that I didn’t get my strips out of order 🙂

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. I really appreciate you stopping by and all of the comments and likes that my posts have been receiving. And as always before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

52CCT October Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone, today I am here to share with you a Colour Challenge with the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge Design Team. It is week 2 of October and Branka is our hostess again. And these are the colours that she chose for all of us to have fun with.

02 Colour

This is definitely a different combination of colours to play with and I had some difficulty in trying to figure out how to use them. This is the card that I came up with.

52CCT 10 2019 wk2 Colour

While I was having problems with figuring out what to do I went looking through my images to see if one stood out for use with this combination. And then I found this adorable image “Meowy Christmas” by Jodi from Bugaboo images. And he is still available here. The one thing I like about this image is that you can colour this cat anyway you wish. So if you know who this is going to go to you can colour it like their cat to make it more personal. I chose to go with a Tortishell colouring because it helped with the challenge colours 😀

Thanks for stopping in at looking at my Design Team work for the 52CCT. I hope that you will come on over to our challenge blog and have a look and maybe even join in on one of our challenges. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Until the next time we meet, do what makes you happy,
❤ Tracy

Joy and Laughter

Hello everyone, I had the opportunity to make some Christmas cards following along with some sketch challenges. Because you know how much I have them! And this is another card following along with another sketch from one of my favourite sketch sites.

10 10 Joy and laughter

This card followed along with a sketch from Mojo Monday #524 and this is it.

All of this came from pieces that were leftover from other Christmas card creations. I love sketches that help me to do this. I have used some Washi tape for the diagonal stripes and then edged them with some wavy gold stickers just to help them stand out.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card project. I am so appreciative of all the likes and comments that my posts have been receiving of late. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

Star Of Wonder

Hello everyone, today I am sharing with you a very simple Christmas card. I thought that this style would suit the card sketch that I was working with. So this is the card that I made

10 10 Star of Wonder

And this is the sketch from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #337 that I followed along with.

As you can see I didn’t follow along with the sketch exactly as I was letting the supplies dictate how things could be used. If I did this again I would probably put the sentiment above the line so that I could do a thinner line … but of course, this is hindsight.

I hope that you still love my take on the sketch this week. Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I appreciate all of the likes and comments that are being left on my posts. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

Until next time, find your happy and do plenty of it!

Wee One Bug

Hello everyone, another card made from one of my images that I have watercoloured but this time around I have added some details with pens afterwards.

10 06 BugBoy

This cute little image is called Wee Little Bug from Bugaboo Digital Images and is still available. This card started with a sketch from Stella Says Sketch #716 

But I will also be putting this card into the Anything Goes Challenge over at the Catch the Bug Challenge site.

I kept this card on the simple side because I wanted to let the watercolour image to be the main star. I had a lot of fun both colouring in the image and making up the card as well.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. I appreciate all of the likes and comments on my posts. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

Fluttering Butterflies

Hello everyone, today I had some fun and pulled out my watercolour paints. I have just gotten into using these again after not using this type of medium since High School. But I used a digital image from Bugaboo Digital Images. And this is the card that I made.

10 06 Butterfly

Unfortunately, this image is no longer available but I love using it. The image only comes with 1 butterfly in the middle to get the other 2 I cropped the image and printed them at the same time on another piece of watercolour paper. This whole design was started by this sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #336.

I will also be entering this card into the Anything Goes Challenge over at the Catch The Bug Challenge site.
