Monster Sized Birthday

Hello everyone, it is so good to be in my craft space again and being able to craft. For awhile I thought that I wouldn’t be able to get back here again for quite some time but I have been blessed with a good day so I am taking advantage of it. And so I am here to share another card that I have made and this time around it is a combo of 2 challenges.

What started this card off this time was actually the November Colour Challenge from Catch the Bug. I had to search quite a way through my paper pads to find something that came close (I Hope) to the challenge palette

And then I found this sketch from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #343. I use to be a part of their design team but due to life commitments, I had to step down earlier this year. But I still love playing along with the challenges.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card design. I really appreciate you stopping in and for all of the likes and comments that I get as well. They all help my growth in my card making. Before you depart my blog I would like to leave you with this thought to ponder on.

52CCT September Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,
It is the 2nd week of September which means over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge we are playing with colours. Myrna has actually chosen 2 colours for us to play with and they are

02 Colour

Sometimes being restricted by choice can be a good thing. And sometimes not so much! This is the card that I made using this colour combination.

This colour combo gave me a little trouble and the card that I produced wasn’t what I had intended but I am pleased with the results. The sentiment is printed on my computer using the words from a much smaller stamp – I wanted the sentiment to be the focal point of my card so I had to upsize the font. The papers that I used are from a paper pack by Kasiercraft called “First Noel” which came out last year. And I have used some of my new Love from Lizi stickers that I got in the post not that long ago.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team make for this weeks challenge over at the 52CCT challenge. I hope that we will see your project over there sometime. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.


Until Next Time,

52CCT August Colour

Hello Everyone,

It is the 2nd week of the month and over at 52 Christmas Card Challenge
Netta has chosen this colour combo for us to play with.

I must admit that this colour combination was a bit difficult for me to get my head around. But this is the card that I came up with.

When I started making this card I looked through my stash; I found that I didn’t have any craft products that suited so this meant a trip to my local big box craft store. I was lucky to find this bronze coloured tape but no papers in these colours. So I decided to make my own using a set of Layered Stencils to make a plaid background paper. I am not sure if I like this set of stencils but this is my first time using this particular set so I will have to play with different colour combos to make my final assessment.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team creation. I hope that you will come on over to 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and participate in the challenge. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought.

Until Next Time,
Tracy B
