Butterfly Birthday

Hello everyone, I loved the look of the sketch that Julie made from Mojo Monday that I decided that I had to attempt to make a card even despite my shoulder restrictions at the moment. And this is the card that I came up with

And this is the sketch #527 from Mojo Monday that started this whole card making session.

My card ended up being a little bit different but it’s only missing the bow because I used washi tape instead of ribbon as I couldn’t find anything that would suit. I was going for a more masculine type of card – I think that I succeeded but I’m not 100% sure. What do you think? These papers have been in my stash for such a long time waiting for me to find the right project for them.

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

Until the next post,
Live Each Day of Your Life.

Hello Happy Birthday

Hello everyone, today I am sharing with you a card that I got to make. I made it using the paper pad that was sitting on my desk from the previous card and a new sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

11 03 Apple Birthday

And here is the sketch that I used #340 from AHSC

As you can see I flipped the sketch – I did this because of the elements that I had. The sentiment flag was a pre-printed one and I couldn’t change the orientation so I went with what I had. The checked element is some washi tape that I have in my stash. Most of my elements have been backed with green lightweight cardstock.

52CCT November Sketch

Hello everyone, can you believe that we are already in November? I certainly can’t believe that we are already here. But anyway onto the challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. And since this is the first week in November we have a sketch to play around with.

52CCT 2019 11 Nov

As you can see this card is done as a square card. And I don’t make many square cards in my crafting so I have made an A6 sized card. And here it is.

Trying to photograph cards with gold elements especially large ones can be tricky. But apart from that, I am really happy with how this card has turned out. When I make this design again and I will when I am able I think that I will put larger stars on the top of the trees.

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.

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.
