TMS #551

Hello everyone. 2 cards in 1 day – well actually the previous post for today was a scheduled post but this one was made this afternoon. Trying to run away from my pain so I am concentrating on something else :/

04 25 More Cake

So I went looking for a current sketch challenge that was happening and found sketch #551 from Tuesday Morning Sketches that I could play around with.

I loved this sketch because it gave me an opportunity to get rid of some of the strips of paper that I had leftover from other cards. These papers are from the same black and white pad that I used for a couple of my previous cards. I am slowly using this pad up which is a good thing.

The cupcake and stand stamps are from a magazine I got ages ago. The sentiment stamp is from My Favorite Things and the set is “Anything but basic Birthday sentiments”. This stamp set is becoming a fav of mine as it has wonderful sentiments. Each of the banner pieces I sponged with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink just so they would stand out from the background.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. Just to let me know that you stopped on by today please consider leaving either a comment or a like, I would appreciate it. But before you depart my blog I would love to leave you with this last thought for this post.

This is true for any situation not just fitness. Because if you keep going you will be closer than you were before.

Until my next post,
🙂 Tracy

Friends Gods Gift

Hello everyone, I have made some cards over the past couple of days. As I said in my last post I have had to make some adjustments to how I do things because of my limited abilities at the moment. But I think that I have worked out the best adjustment for me. But anywho onto the main reason that you stopped on by today … my card

01 15 Friend

This card started with a sketch and this time around it is the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #351. I use to be on their design team but due to my health I had to step down but I still love playing along with the sketches when I can.

Isn’t this a great sketch! As you can see I have turned this onto its side the main reason for doing this is that I wanted to use this long sentiment and it fitted best this way. This is more of the same paper pack from the last card; this sketch was perfect for me getting towards the bottom of the pack because I mainly have strips from cutting bases for other cards.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and looking at my card project. Before you depart from my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Do something creative every day.

Make A Wish

09 25th Make a Wish.JPG

Hello Everyone,
Today the card that I am sharing is actually part of a 5 card set that I made. I decided to have some fun and just create some backgrounds and cards using the same set of materials. For this card I used a card sketch from Sketch Saturday #532 by Jessie – this is what it looks like

The products that I used for the card was a paper pack from my stash, the background which I created with a simple pan of watercolours, some watercolour paper cut to 10cm X 14.4cm and the My Favourite Things Sketched Blooms Stamp Set plus their Black Hybrid Ink.  To cut out the square element I used my Stitched Square Dies from Uniquely Creative.  The rest of the elements where cut using my paper trimmer. The black brads are from my stash.

I sometimes like making simple styled cards because I find I have to stop myself from adding more and more elements. I think that this sketch may become a favourite of mine.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project. As always before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought

The Beauty of handmade Lies in the imperfections. Anything perfect is machine made.

In every project that I make there is a little imperfection. It is the quirk of handmade of which I love. I love seeing the artist in their work. Nothing in this world is true and perfect unless it is made by God. I am the perfect me because God made me. I am never perfect except in the eyes of God and I am very OK with that.

Have a Happy Crafty Handmade Kind of Day,
❤ Tracy
