Looking Back

Hello everyone, this card that I am bringing you was started by the Sketch Saturday crew who this week have asked us to look back in their archives. Then choose a sketch to have fun with.

And this is the card that I made for Challenge #592 from Sketch Saturday. The sketch that I chose was this one

This sketch was from July 27th. I did actually make a card for this challenge originally and I have used this sketch since; it has become one of my favourites to use. This time around I decided to monotone with my colours and this is going to be an anniversary card for some friends of mine. The image is called “Love Blocks – Love Conquers All” from Bugaboo Digital Stamps and I thought it would go wonderfully with my black and white monotone colour scheme.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card for this challenge. Before you go from my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Purrrfect Birthday

Hello everyone, trying to make a card with not many colours makes it harder. But having a wonderful silhouette image to work with makes things much easier.

And this cat silhouette image from Bugaboo was just the ticket. This card I will also be entering into 2 different challenges.

This bingo challenge from Bugaboo which I have used the right column and also a sketch challenge #355 from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I really appreciate all of the likes and comments on my posts. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

Never too late…

Until next time, find something that you love doing and do it,

Christmas Time, Handmade Cards

Christmas Wishes

Hello Everyone, I am happy that I am getting more of my Christmas cards made. I am very late in continuing my quest to make all of our Christmas cards for this year. I hope to get them all done but I may have to resort to buying some ((((faints))))) I hate having to do this but then again this year hasn’t exactly gone how I thought it would either.

But anywho! onto my card creation
Deer ChristmasTwo things drove this card design. The first was the October Challenge over at Christmas Cards All Year – Monochromatic Browns– I hope this is suitable!! And the 2nd was I looked at my list of card recipients and I have ended up with a lot more male names on it so I thought a card like this would be good for one of them.

All of the components of this card came from my stash. It is so nice to be using what I already have; except after popping up the main image I found that I am going to have to buy new foam tape – mine had gone really horrible –YUCK!! don’t even want to go there — I’m going to have to find a supplier because my local small craft shop which was my favorite haunt has closed its bricks and mortar shop and gone online 😦 I don’t really like going to the big box stores but at the moment if I want to walk in that is where I am going to have to go – its a sad state of how things are now.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation. And now I would like to leave you with a thought before you leave:
