Clouds with Silver Lining

Hello everyone, I am here to share with you a card that I have made for the latest Stella Says Sketch challenge. With my shoulder the way that it is I am never sure when or for how long I will be able to craft so I make the most of it when I can. So yesterday when I was feeling OK I searched out a favourite sketch challenge to see what I may be able to use. And this is the card that I was able to craft.

11 30 Rain Bear

I had coloured this image (April Showers by Bugaboo Digital Stamps, unfortunately no longer available) a little while ago. And this is the sketch #720 from Stella Says Sketch Challenge.

To the image, I just added the extra raindrops and flurries to put him in a rain shower. I cut out the image with a die with my Cuttlebug and then cut around the image with my scissors to make the backing layer as I didn’t have a suitable die to do this. And then I found this sentiment from another set of stamps that I thought suited my image and this finished off this card.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card project. I am grateful for all of the likes and comments that my posts have been getting. Before you go I would like to leave you with this quote to ponder on.

Love from Afar

Hello everyone, today this card could be used for Valentine’s Day next year or for an anniversary card. Now that my Christmas cards for this year are complete I can work towards next year’s celebrations 😀 It’s nice to be ahead for once.

I also think that this card would suit either a guy or a girl because I don’t think that I have gone too far either way. And this card started with a sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #344.

What a fun sketch to play along with and I hope that you like what I have done with this sketch. Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. I really appreciate all of the likes and comments on my posts. Before you go from my blog I would like to leave you with this thought for this post.

Until the next post,

Congratulations

Hello everyone, today’s card can be used for most occasions and I really like cards like this. The reason that I am saying that this card can be used for a variety of occasions is that I have used a very general sentiment this time around.

11 27 Congratulations

and this sketch #591 from Sketch Saturday was a great one to use when I only had 1 rather plain 6×6 paper left in the pad I’ve been trying to use up 🙂

I am happy to be using up this paper pad and I have been able to make many different cards just from the last bits and pieces. I didn’t add the 2-star elements to my design because I fell in love with the papers that I was using and didn’t want to cover up any of the design.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I really appreciate the time spent on liking my projects and leaving comments. Before you go from my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for the post.

Monster Sized Birthday

Hello everyone, it is so good to be in my craft space again and being able to craft. For awhile I thought that I wouldn’t be able to get back here again for quite some time but I have been blessed with a good day so I am taking advantage of it. And so I am here to share another card that I have made and this time around it is a combo of 2 challenges.

11 24 Monster Birthday

What started this card off this time was actually the November Colour Challenge from Catch the Bug. I had to search quite a way through my paper pads to find something that came close (I Hope) to the challenge palette

And then I found this sketch from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #343. I use to be a part of their design team but due to life commitments, I had to step down earlier this year. But I still love playing along with the challenges.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card design. I really appreciate you stopping in and for all of the likes and comments that I get as well. They all help my growth in my card making. Before you depart my blog I would like to leave you with this thought to ponder on.

Birthday Ewe

Hello everyone, I am here to share with you a card that I made but am running close to the end of the Stella Says Sketch Challenge.

11 24 Ewe Birthday

I had actually coloured this image “Happy Birthday to Ewe!” from Bugaboo Digital Stamps with my Faber-Castell Polychromos a little while ago. I colour in images when I have time and keep them in a box for use on later projects.

Here is the sketch from Stella Says Sketch #719

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

Until my next post,
Time to prepare for December!!

Natural, White and Gold

Hello everyone, yes I am back card crafting and writing posts again despite my shoulder. I have been told by the professionals around me that I am not to baby my shoulder and to use it despite the pain it is causing at the moment. So I am doing what I love to do … craft!!

Anywho onto this card project. This card was inspired by 2 challenges – one a card sketch and the other a colour challenge. And this is the card that I made

11 23 Gold White Brown

And these are the 2 challenges that I am entering. First off the sketch from Mojo Monday #527 – 

and then the colour challenge with The Daring Cardmakers – Natural, Gold and White

Taking the inspiration of the Natural I decided that I would use papers that depicted the natural environment – like browns and leaves and then I added in Gold and White elements. This paper pack has featured in a couple of my cards lately because it has been sitting on my desk from that last time that it was used. I hope that you like my interpretation of the theme.

Thanks for stopping in on my blog today. I hope that you find it both fun and maybe gets some inspiration as well. I really appreciate all of the likes and comments that my posts have been receiving lately. Before you leave my blog let me inspire you with this quote I found.

Only Jesus is worthy to be praised :)

Until my next post,
Keep moving forward always.

Old St Nick

Hello everyone, today I am sharing with you a card that I have made using an old image from Bugaboo Digital Stamps but it’s one of my favs. Unfortunately, it is no longer in the shop but there are many wonderful images over there. I encourage you to go and have a look and maybe pick up a few. But this card started with a card sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. First to the card that I made …

11 22 Old St Nick

The image has been printed on my inkjet printer with 2 different digital papers layered behind the Santa image. The image I coloured in with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils. For the fur around his jacket, I used a combo of 3D puff paint and some White Pearl Stickles.

This is the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #530

Thanks for stopping on by my blog today to have a look at my creation. I appreciate all of the likes and comments that are left on my posts. Before you depart from my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

 If not crafting I’m usually stuck in a book 😀
