Fly Free

Hello Everyone
Today I am sharing with you a more simple card for me. Not too many layers but a lot of stamping which was a whole heap of fun.

I have had some major stuff going on in my life; I was diagnosed with lung cancer in December 2016 and then on the 3rd of February, 2017 I lost this beautiful person
my Mum.
She lost her long battle with Parkinson’s Disease after fighting this horrible and life sapping disease for 9 years. And as you could have imagined I felt like not crafting.

After some months I have been crafting a little but what I would accomplish either got thrown in the bin or I would undo hours of work because I just didn’t like what I was crafting – which didn’t help the MOJO any.

But this afternoon I felt like doing something creative so I went online to find a couple of challenges I could follow. I find when I am just coming back into crafting following a challenge helps me to accomplish some stuff.  I ended up creating this card
I am pleased with the results and I hope my friend likes it for her birthday.

So the challenges I am entering this card into are
The Color Throwdown Challenge #431 – Mint Green, Green, Plum and Light Brown
Case this Sketch #210

If I can just ask something of all of you – and that is – make time for those who mean something to you.  You don’t know what tomorrow shall bring. Treasure each moment because it could be the last one you get.

Thanks for stopping by to have a look at my project today. I hope that you find yourself doing something that you really love soon.

Until my next project

Just for Fun

This morning I decided that I would craft a card just for fun.  I didn’t want to have the constraints of time or deadlines; I just wanted to be free to make something and enjoy the creative process along the way.  But my crafting MOJO just wasn’t playing along so I did what I have done in the past and looked for a sketch to start things off for me and I found this one

This is from September, 2015 but I just liked its simple layout.  I thought this would be something I could give a go after not card crafting for awhile. So I dug through my stash of paper packs and decided to use the Hippy Girl Collection from Kasiercraft.  I also dug out an image of a Butterfly from Meljen Designs which I had coloured in with my Copics last month and hadn’t found the right card for it.

I am really happy with the end result especially after having such a long break.  I am hoping that I will be able to do more since my craft table was updated by my Hubby John.  It was such a delight crafting at my new and updated desk.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and look at my project. To let me know you stopped in please consider liking this post or/and leaving me a comment.

Happy Crafting Always,
