Joy

Hello everyone,
I am back for a second card project for today. It’s so good to be able to have some time in my craft space. But this happens when you don’t have to do school runs and such 😉 And this is my card
12 19 Joy
I really had fun with this one and I think that I may redo this card a couple more times. The image is a digital stamp Christmas Word Joy from Bugaboo stamps. I use this image quite a lot because you can colour it to suit your papers, very handy that! And to start this card off came the sketch
Stella Says 620
And as I have been doing I have included the measurements to make a front for a A6 card. And also any mats are usually 0.5cm bigger.
The image I printed and coloured with my Copic markers and it is backed with a Christmas digital paper. Then I added this to a piece of shimmer Maroon paper and matted this with green paper. The poinsettia is a die cut that I had left over in my Christmas Stash.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project. To let me know that you stopped by please consider leaving a comment. And before you go I would like to leave you with this thought
This is something that I hope to be able to do more of while I am not running to different things over this Christmas/New Year break. I want to do more reading next year – that is a goal for me.
Have a Happy Crafty Kind of Day,

Oh Holy Night

Hello everyone,
Yes I am still making Christmas cards but now I am starting onto next years batch. As I now have 2 places that I donate cards too now and also my own needs I am definitely going to have to be making them all through the next 12 months. And this is what I have started with
12 19 Oh Holy Night
For me this is definitely a “Clean and Simple” style of card mainly because it doesn’t have a lot of layers. I actually like how this turned out but of course with me it started with finding a sketch and I found this one

And as I do for you I have included the measurements not only for myself to use the next time but also if you would like to make a card using this sketch. These measurements are to make the front for a A6 card.
I love this image but I am not sure where I bought it from. But she has always reminded me of a rag doll that I got for a present one year so I thought it may be suitable for this weeks Card in Envy challenge. And then Tuesday Morning Sketches is having a Anything Goes so I thought that I would use one of their previous sketches.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project. To let me know that you came by please consider giving me a comment and if you have a blog I will stop by yours sometime. And before you go I would like to leave you with this thought
mistakes happen thats life
This is one thing that I have been teaching our children. But also how to handle when it doesn’t work out. This is all part of life. I want to teach my children these things not this world!
