52CCT March 2021 Sketch

Hello everyone. Here we are the beginning of March of 2021 – Already! As you are reading this our kitchen renovation is half way complete. But we still have the conversion of our garage starting in a couple of days and then the kitchen installers will be back to finish off. So of course we are out of our house while this noisy and messy stuff is being done and I am without my craft space but not my supplies. Actually I started planning what supplies would be coming with me as soon as we had dates for our move. My clothes and other stuff was just secondary.

The lucky thing for me being on the 52Christmas Card Design Team is that I have early access to the challenges. SO I worked on a couple of months ahead of schedule. I may be working with minimal supplies in a half fixed craft space for a while.

But any who onto todays Sketch challenge with it being the first week of the month. And this is the sketch that we were given.

Now of course this is your starting point. This sketch could be turned into a square or you could flip the orientation or even make it into a slimline card. We just want to see the elements of this sketch in your creation. And this is my take on this sketch.

03 2021 Wk1 Sketch

I stuck with the sketch pretty close. My banner is a little longer than the sketch but it is pretty much the same from there.

This card was made with papers that were on my desk from my previous card. The sticker box was still on my desk during my pack up and I found these stars. I added 3 just for a bit more bling on the card. The sentiment is from Paper Rose’s Crisp Christmas Sentiment Sheets and I added a Love from Lizi Gold Medium Size Pin Stripe Sticker.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my take on the sketch for 52CCT. I hope that you will come and play along with us and upload your creation to our blog. Before you go off and have some fun with your crafty stash I would like to leave you with this final thought.

Tag Your It

Hello everyone, something a little different to share with you today. A tag instead of a card.


Why a tag and not a card like usual? Because of Day 3 of the Holiday Critter Chaos.

I love how this turned out. It was made so much easier with this cute penguin trio image. They are so adorable and I coloured them in my with my Copic markers and used some blue distress ink around them just to help not have such a stark tag.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my non-card project. I am glad that you stopped by my blog today; before you depart I would love to leave you with this last thought for this post.


Until my next post,
Enjoy a cup of Tea and remember me!
❤ Tracy

Peace On Earth

Hello Everyone,
I told you that I would be back for a 2nd post. I am sitting at my dining room table trying to get this done before my foot hates being inside the “Moon Boot” too much. So this post is going to be short and sweet.

Peace on Earth.jpg

This is one of the digital stamps from the Wreath: Boxwood and Cranberry set.  I liked this set because it is different from a lot of other Christmas stamp sets. I again used my Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils to colour in the image and brushed over the image with my Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I didn’t really like the starkness of the white and this I think finished it off nicely.

Again I am entering in the Power Poppy and PageMaps Combination Challenge:
this time I chose to use the January 2018 Square Map
I hope that you like my interpretation of the sketch. As I said in my previous post now that I have been introduced to PageMaps I will definitely be back to look at the coming designs.

Once again thanks for stopping by my blog today. Before you go of course I need to leave you with this thought:

So, so true! I hope you don't, like me, stand there pushing or pulling, when the sign, not five inches from my nose, says otherwise! get to read all the lovely messages your Pin friends (like Pen friends!) leave you here!!Enough said! Except You are never too old for Garfield and He often makes a lot of sense …. Just saying.

Have a Happy Crafty Garfield Kind of Day,
My Name
