No Pattern

Hello Everyone,
I am here to share with you a card that I made with a mix of 2 challenges.
The first is one from Cute Card Thursday
and a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #513

TMS 513

When I read the challenge on Cute Card Thursday I was a little thrown because I am so used to using patterned paper on my projects. But then I thought about it a little and this is the card that I came up with.

07 27 Reindeer Christmas

So instead of using patterned paper, I used an embossing folder for the background. The panel on the left was made using bronze washi tape. The reindeer sticker is from my stash and has been sitting at the bottom of it for many a year so I am very happy to see it used. The sentiment circle came on the front of a card making magazine.

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

Stop regretting yesterday; stop longing for tomorrow. TODAY is the day to make it happen. #fitness #motivation from

Until Next Time,

Special Wishes

Hello Everyone,
I am back with a new project. I actually had time to get back into my craft space. Unfortunately, some things have gotten in my path to my craft space. But I am going to be happy that I have had some time. To celebrate being able to get in my space again I decided that I would play along with a couple of card challenges.

For this card creation, I have followed along with 2 challenges.  This time it started with a colour challenge and then a sketch. This sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches
TMS 511
I went to their site earlier in the week and intended on using it but as I said things got in the way. And I checked earlier and found that I still had time to play along. Then the other challenge came from Cute Card Thursday and this time it’s a colour challenge and they have chosen Pink! I must admit that I don’t create a lot with pink. This is what I created joining these together.

07 14 Sew Sue

This image is SewSun from Bugaboo Stamps, unfortunately, this digital stamp is retired. But there are still fabulous stamps available in their shop. I coloured her in with my Prismacolour Pencils and used the Woven Stencil by Tim Holtz to put the pattern into the background.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my creation today. Please consider leaving a like or a comment I really appreciate these. Before you depart I would like to leave you with this thought for today.

Until Next Time,
Tracy B

Celebrate 3 Times

Hello Everyone,
Here I am with the 3rd card from this set. I had so much fun using one of my colouring in pages that I am definitely going to do this again in the future. And just to remind you again here is the photo of the 3 cards together

03 17 Colour Time Dream 1

This 3rd card uses the last piece of the page which was along the bottom of the page It also suited to used in a portrait orientation for this card and this is the card up close


I decided to sink the colouring in section to the base of the card and have mounted the green side panels on foam to give it a little dimension. Then came the problem of adding the sentiment; I didn’t want to add a solid shape because I didn’t want to cover up my colouring so I used some clear acetate and added this across the 2 panels and added silver holographic circle stickers around the sentiment to hold it onto the card and around the card to tie it all in.

I decided to add this one to the Cute Card Thursday Challenge of celebrating as well

Live life colorfully life quotes quotes life color


Hello Everyone,
I know that a lot of people out there love colouring pages for fun and relaxation. I know that I do; it’s an easy craft to take with you almost anywhere. I decided to get two enjoyments from my colouring in activities by using what I had done and using them to make cards with. Today’s card shows this with a set of 3 cards.

and here is the first card up close


I cut this panel 1st from the colouring page because I knew the exact card that I was going to make with this image. I thought that this pair of birds would make a lovely anniversary card. I didn’t matt this image as I would have had to cut too much of my colouring away to make it fit in. I had this small heart background in my stash and thought that this would help set the anniversary theme. Then in my ribbon box I found this ribbon which I thought suited as well and this is where I left the decorations except to add the Happy Anniversary Sticker onto the ribbon.

When I went to upload this card I found that Cute Card Thursday had uploaded their latest challenge

And they have asked us to Celebrate with them as it is their 11th Birthday. But you can interpenetrate this theme any way that you would like to. So I am celebrating the love of two people. Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. I really appreciate the likes and comments on my blog. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought

If you are still having doubts of traveling together with your partner, then perhaps these travel quotes should keep you both on the road.

Until Next Time,

All My Love

Hello Everyone,
It is so good to be back in my craft space and creating again. Do you ever get withdrawal symptoms when you stop doing what you usually do for awhile? I got this way over the past couple of weeks. I have been crafting but not really sharing but now I am back into it again.

Anywho onto the reason yo stopped by my creation 🙂

01 04 all my love

This card is digging into my stash in a big way. These papers have been in there since my daughter was little and she is going back to Uni to do her Masters! So you can tell how long these papers have been around.

The card started it’s journey first by finding two challenges from 2 of my favourite places to visit. Time Out Challenge with a theme of Loving and Cute Card Thursday – Anything Goes. But if you have been to my blog before you will know that I love to use sketches to help me figure out placements and I used Freshly Made Sketch  #207

fms 207

As you can see from the sketch to my card they don’t quite match up – this is because of the papers that I had in my stash. I have just flipped the width measurements to make it fit the products that I had. I added the embossed heart which I coloured with some Distress Inks so I had a place for my sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project. I would love to know that you stopped on by so please consider leaving either a like or a comment. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought

proud of who you are, what you do, difference you make

I think that this is a fabulous way to live. I am going to try to remember this more during the coming year.

Have a Happy Crafty Kind of Day,
❤ Tracy B
