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.

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

Hello everyone, yes I know that Mothers Day isn’t for quite a while. But when you donate cards to places you have to be crafting ahead of time. So since this is my next donation you are going to be seeing some of my creations for this wonderful day.

Tuesday Morning Sketch #538

This card started with this sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. I am not sure where I got this image from but I have had it for years and use it quite often for Mothers Day or New Baby cards. This time around I decided to leave it black and white because I thought it was a great contrast to the pink of the card.

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

Until my next post,
Don’t apologise for your illness.

Birthday Ewe

Hello everyone, it’s Day 7 of the Bugaboo 10th Birthday Bash and the last day. I have had so much fun creating with critters all week 🙂

Birthday Ewe Trio was the Freebie and can be purchased here

I had actually already purchased this image a little while ago. Because I use this image and a lot of the “Ewe” images for friends of mine that love either knitting, crochet, weaving or spinning their wool fibres. So this card will come in handy for my stash.

I am really pleased with how this one turned out. It is on the simpler side of my makes but I had a lot of fun colouring in the image with my Copic markers. And one of my friends will get a kick out of this card.

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

Happy Bird-day

Hello everyone, here is Day 6 of the Bugaboo 10th Birthday Bash. What an interesting set of colours to play along with.

I didn’t use a cow on my project but I did use a sweet image from Bugaboo.

01 15 Bug Birthday Day6

Unfortunately this sweet Bird/Chick image is no longer available in the Bugaboo Digital Store. But you will find some fine feathered friends to make yours. I coloured in this image with my Copic markers and used a birthday embossing folder on some aqua paper and layered everything in this green paper.

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

Why do roosters look so neat? Because they always have a comb!

Until my next post,
May you find time to be crafty today.

Birthday Laughter

Hello everyone, yes another project completed for the week of Birthday celebrations over with the crew from Bugaboo. Day 5 – Make Us Laugh

I must admit that this type of challenge I always find challenging 😀 But this is what I came up with

01 15 Bug Birthday Day5

With using the image “Chicken Soup” I was going to do this as a Get Well card but then I realized that it had to be a Birthday card so the saying at the top is how I fixed this 🙂 Because I still liked the joke that I came up with. And I had these Birthday stickers in my stash so I decided to add a few to this project.

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

Birthday BINGO

Hello everyone,
Yes, another post for the Birthday bash over at Bugaboo. And this is Day 4 Birthday Bingo.

01 15 Bug Birthday Day4

Can you tell which line in the Bingo I used?
It’s the 3rd column: straight up and down – the only change I made was the gems – I didn’t have so I used pearls instead. (Hope this was OK) The image that I used this time around is Circle Sentiments – Birthday Ewe. I have coloured this image in with my Copic markers and I am using more of the Birthday paper pack that I found in my stash. And to cut out the image and my layering circle with my thin dies I was able to use my new Gemini Jnr Machine. I treated myself to this machine after all the problems I have been having with my shoulders. It was expensive (especially in OZ) but I looked at it as a long term investment in my crafting future – just using it on this card I am sooooo happy that I made this purchase. I can use my dies again ((HAPPY dance))

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

Maybe laughing stock isn't such an insult? :)  #funny #cows #farms
Such a better way to look at this saying!

Until my next post,
Find your sense of humor.

Bookmark for You

Hello everyone, challenge 3 for the Birthday bash over at Bugaboo.

I wasn’t quite sure what to make for this challenge but I loved the Molly Moo’s garden image from the previous challenge that I decided that I would make something with this to add to the card in the previous post.

01 15 Bug Birthday Day3

A lot of my friends are readers so I decided to make a bookmark with this saying and another image from Bugaboo; this time I used Book Stack. These images were coloured this time with my Copic markers. I will laminate this before I give it but I know that trying to photograph through laminate is a nightmare 🙂

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

reading the best book....you have to read it!
