Birthday, card sketch, Handmade Cards

Atlantic Hearts #368

Hello everyone, I hope that you are finding some time to get into your craft space or to use your craft supplies in some way. I am having to work around the limitations that I have with my frozen shoulder. So when I am able to get into my space I try to make the most of it.

I decided this time around I would play with a sketch and make a card that made me smile. And this is the card that I made.

So I looked at the half-used paper pad that was sitting on my craft desk and wanted to use more of it up. So these colours led to the colouring of the Alpaca in the image. But of course, all of this started with a sketch. Atlantic Hearts Sketch #368

This was a fun sketch to play around with. I couldn’t find a bird image that I liked to use for this sketch but I still wanted to participate in the sketch challenge. Hope it was okay not to use a bird image. I have always loved this stamp set; it always puts a smile on my face whenever I use it. I love the sentiments that are included.

As I mentioned before I decided on a paper pad to use before I coloured this image so I was able to match some for the blanket and cake. I used a grass die to give the Alpaca something to stand on – when I first put him onto the cake he looked a little weird because he looked like he was floating in the air.

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

Make the most of each day, hour, second because the next one isn’t guaranteed.

Until my next post,
