January 2019 Sketch for 52CCT

Hello Everyone,
Welcome to 2019 and the start of the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenges for the year. During January the host of the challenges will be Andreja. Since its the first week of the month it is time for a sketch challenge and this is the sketch that we have had a chance to play with.

As I have been doing I have provided the metric measurements for those who may find them useful. As you can see it is a square card design and I don’t usually do squares because of the waste by-product of making the card base. But this is what I came up with

This card is on the simpler side because it is not full of layers and such. But I like how it turned out – I think it helped that I used products from the same company. These are from Kasiercraft and they are from the First Noel 6X6 paper pack.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my Design Team project. I hope that you will come over and play along with the current challenge. Maybe some of the other fabulous challenges that we have in store for you coming up. You can find the information about 52 Christmas Card Throwdown here. Before you go I would love to leave you with this final thought


I hope and pray that 2019 will be filled with laughter, fun and lots of craft! When times of sorrow or unhappy times come passing by remember that you will get through the other side. I would encourage you to dig into those relationships that fill you … so that during the happy times you are overflowing with joy and then during the harder times you have something to draw on – memories of better times to get you through.

Have a Happy Crafty Kind of Day,
❤ Tracy B

09 Cpt Am Van

Hello Everyone, I am sharing with you a card that I made based on a card sketch on the AAA card challenge. This is the details to the card challenge CAS Game #123 – Sketch

I didn’t keep to the square card because I don’t usually do this size so I extended the sketch to fit our Australian size A6 card front. I had so much fun making this card using one of the images that I had coloured in with my Polychromos Pencils. The colours for the van were inspired by the circle element on the front of the van. As soon as I saw it I was reminded of Captain America – so I had to colour it Red, White and Blue. The paper behind the image is from Kasiercrafts Road Trip 6X6 paper pack.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project. And as always I would like to leave you with this thought:
 I have forgotten this of late. I do like making things and it helps me to feel closer to those who taught me how to craft when I was younger. I have lost all of those who introduced me to being creative.

Have a Happy Crafty Creative Kind of Day,
❤ Tracy
