Fixing an Oops

Hello everyone, yes I know an interesting title for a post but this card is doing just that. I was making the card for the challenge when I lost concentration for just a second and stuffed things up. So this image got put into my finished image box and waited.

02 20 Lily Vase

Then along came this sketch #597 from Sketch Saturday and I was able to pull out this image again 😀

You see the oops part of my image was in the top section so by using my Circle Die and my Gemini Jnr machine I was able to crop and save what I had coloured. I tell you don’t drink your warm drink while colouring otherwise you can have a disaster. Just sayin!

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I am so glad to be able to still use an image that I spent time colouring with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils. Until my next post, I would like to leave you this last thought for now.

Never judge anyone because you never know what they are dealing with. People are good at hiding things.

Until next time,

Mothers Day Bird

Hello everyone, again I am here to share with you a Mothers Day card that I have made. I am trying to get as many as I can done before the deadline. I am donating them to our troops and they need to be sent to them so that they can make their way back to the recipients. So this is why I am doing these now and not in April.

02 12 Bird Mum Day

And this card started with the sketch #596 from Sketch Saturday.

The images on the card came from the stamp set “Flying By” from Uniquely Creative. I coloured both of these in with my Copic markers and fussy cut around them. This is a different sort of Mothers Day card but I like it. Not all Mothers are into pink and such.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. Before you depart my blog I would like to leave you with this thought for this post.

Look after yourself. You can be your own worst enemy.

Until my next blog,
Do what makes you happy.
❤ Tracy

2 Cards 1 Sketch Pt2

Hello everyone, today I am here to share with you a sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge in which I turned into 2 Cards. To see my other card please go here.

01 30 Mum

And here is the fun sketch that started this creative process, Atlantic Hearts Sketch #353

This sketch can be used in a different orientation as my first card showed but also for so many different occasions as well. Time to dive into our stash and find those wanted to use or forgotten stamps that are in our stashes 😉 I know you have them like me.

And if you are wondering, if you’ve seen my first card as well; yes I used the top and bottom of the cuts I did with the die. I thought why not? Didn’t want to waste either my white paper or the blue paper 🙂 Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card projects today. Before you depart my blog today I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

2 Cards 1 Sketch

Hello everyone, today I am here to share with you a sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge in which I turned into 2 Cards.

01 30 Fab Bday

 

And here is the fun sketch that started this creative process, Atlantic Hearts Sketch #353

This sketch can be used for so many different occasions and as you can see with my first card I actually turned this sketch on its side. I mainly did this because of the image that I wanted to use. It wouldn’t fit in the portrait orientation unless I moved the line almost to the bottom and then the sketch just didn’t look right.

And if you are wondering yes I used the top and bottom of the cuts I did with the die. I thought why not? Didn’t want to waste either my white paper or the blue paper 🙂 Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card projects today. Before you depart my blog today I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

52CCT February Sketch

Hello everyone, can you believe that we are already in the 2nd month of 2020! Since it is the beginning of a new month it means that over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge we are getting to play along with a new sketch. And our hostess for the month Netta has chosen this sketch for us to play with

What a lot of fun can be had with this sketch. I must admit that I had the most trouble with choosing what to put in the diamonds! But this is what I did …

02 Wk1 Sketch

I found these cute images in my Christmas Stamp section and thought that they would work well and they did. I kept things pretty simple this time around only because of my shoulder restrictions at the moment but I am really happy with how it came out.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team work for this month. I hope that you will come on over to our blog and play along with our challenge. And as always before you depart my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Keep following your path.

Some Bunny Loves Mum

Hello everyone, yes another card made for Mum and also more of my stash used up.

01 29 Mum2

But if you looked at my stash you wouldn’t think that I had made a dent in it. The box is still looking quite full. This card started with the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #539.

As I was uploading the photo I noticed that I got the striped paper a little crooked oh well not much I can do about that now. But aren’t these bunnies adorable! I found them in my stash as I was searching for images to use for this card. These 2 are coloured in with my Copic Markers and cut out by hand. My Gemini Jnr took care of cutting out the 2 circles.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. Before you depart my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Frozen Shoulder is no fun. Having steroid injection tomorrow so there is hope for improvement.

Until my next post,
Look after yourself.

Sketch for Mum

Hello everyone, another card completed for Mothers Day.

01 29 Mum

This time I used the sketch from Julie at Mojo Monday #529.

To make this card I got to use up some of the papers that have been sitting around in my stash since last Mothers Day. I had also printed this greeting last year but didn’t get around to using it but it suited this sketch perfectly. It is so nice to be using up stuff that has been hanging around my craft space for so long.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. Before you depart my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Not so much with card crafting but definitely other projects.

Until my next post,
Work on some of those – UCPs>
