With Love Bunny

Hello Everyone,
Yes, I got to spend some time in my craft space this afternoon. I can share some of my work with you but not all as some were made for upcoming design team challenges, trying to keep in front of commitments. But anywho onto the creation that I can share now … This card started with my favourite place … a sketch and an adorable Bunny image but more on that later. To start with here is my card.

08 04 Bunny Love

Isn’t this image just adorable it is called Kawaii Bunny … I think that this image could be used for several occasions so I am going to stick this card in my any occasion stash. The image was coloured in with my Prismacolour Pencils and I used purple stickles on the heart on the belly. This card started out with a sketch from Sketch Saturday #575 and this is it

This sketch will become one of my favourites I think; it will be easy to use with any of my paper packs and also leaves space for me to have fun with colouring images as well.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my creation. I really appreciate all of the comments and likes on my posts. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought.

Wonderful You

Hello Everyone,
I am here to share with you a card that could be used for multiple occasions. This is because of the image that I chose to use on this card. But this card started with a sketch first and then I found an image that would work with the design and this is the card that I came up with.

08 04 Wonderful You

Because this sentiment is such a general one this card will be able to be used for so many different occasions. And this is the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #514 which started this card making off.

The off the project square threw me at first but then I decided to actually cut the layers instead of laying the items on top. I think that this helped to make this card look quite unique even though it is a simple design.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card even though I am running close to the shut off for this sketch challenge. I really appreciate all of your comments and likes on my creations. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought

Creative and beautiful

Until Next Time,

Thanks a Bunch

Hello Everyone,
Another card made from my scraps drawer. But this time I included a new to me image from Bugaboo Images called Flower Teddy. Isn’t he adorable?

07 29 Thanks a Bunch

I coloured in this adorable bear with my Copic markers. This card started with a sketch from Stella Says Sketch #712. And this is my 2nd creation with this sketch.

Stella Says 712

My card doesn’t match the sketch exactly but I do hope that it is still acceptable for the challenge. I was making this card away from my desk and didn’t have the sketch beside me and by the time I realized what had happened, it was too late. I still enjoyed the making of the card because I was able to dig into my scraps drawer again and be able to pull together another card from pieces that were just too big to throw away.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation. I appreciate all of the likes and comments that I get on my posts. Before you go as always I would like to leave you with this last thought.

Scraps Birthday

Hello Everyone,
Yes, another card made from my scraps drawer. I am so happy to be working through this drawer. I thought that I would never find ways to use this and stuff from my stash. As with most of my cards, this one started out with this inspiration from a sketch. This time around it is Sketch Saturday #574.

And this is the card that I made using this as my starting point.

I need to admit that I almost threw this card in the bin several times – me and my cutter were not on the same page! I cut things wrong and those pieces are now in the bin. But I finally got it all together even though I didn’t follow my own measurements exactly I still thought that it followed the sketch.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my creation. I appreciate all the likes and comments on my posts. Before you leave I would like to leave you with this final thought.

Cupcake Celebrations

Hello Everyone,
I just love the sketch from Mojo Monday so much that I had to make another card. And this time everything on this card comes from my long lost bottom of the pile stash. You know that place where stuff goes and you don’t see it so you don’t use it. Well, I got sick of having all of this stuff that I had purchased but haven’t used yet. And this is the card that I made using the sketch.

07 29 Cupcake Birthday

Here is also the Mojo Monday #519 for you to look at.

This sketch is so much fun to play along with. I know that it won’t be the last time that I use this one. I didn’t do anything this time with the stars because I just couldn’t find anything suitable in my stash – yes I know I was shocked as well.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my creation. I hope that you will stop by another time; please consider leaving a like or/and a comment I really appreciate those. Before you leave my blog I would like to leave you with this final thought.

AHSC 315

Hello Everyone,
I am here today to share my Design Team work for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. If you have been to my blog before you will know that I LOVE sketches. This is one of my favourite ways to start off a card. And this is the sketch that Michelle gave us to play with

AHSC 315 May 6th DT

I had so much fun playing around with this sketch that I actually made 3 cards and these are them

AHSC 315a

They are all made based on the sketch but I changed how I used this sketch and this is one of the things that I love about sketches. You can use them as is or you can flip them or invert them what ever works best for your card sometimes what you do depends on the paper you are using; you may not want to cover up a certain part. This is what happened with the card I am going to highlight in this post.

AHSC 315

As you can see with this paper if I used the original orientation of the sketch I would have lost the city and tree scene on the paper. So I flipped and rotated the sketch to suit my paper. I left this card pretty simple because the base paper was so busy.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team project for AHSC. I hope that you will come on over and play along with myself and the team. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought

Until Next Time,

February Theme Challenge

Hello Everyone,

It’s the 3rd week of the month and over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge this means it’s Theme Challenge time. And our hostess this month Alison has suggested this theme

I must say that I always find winter theme cards a challenge. Because where I live in Australia we don’t really have a winter … well we do but nothing that needs snow gear unless we travel down to the south of our country. So I had to dig through my stamp stash to see what I could find because I don’t really buy this theme either. But I did find something suitable and this is the card I came up with.

52CCT wk3 Feb Theme

I am quite happy with how this came together. Even though I didn’t use traditional colours at all for this card I thought the pink, blue and purples lent to the winter theme. I used my embossing supplies to give this poor leafless tree a slight covering of snow. Using my white gel pen I added some snow to the background of the “photo” which I had coloured using my Distress Inks.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and having a look at my Design Team Submission. I hope to see you over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. Before you go I want to leave you with this thought

I love the advice from a tree. These things are quite good for humans to remember as well. I sometimes forget to do some of these thing actually.
