card sketch, Greeting Cards


Hello Everyone,
Today I am bringing you a card that is celebrating friendship. Friends are great to have but for me I only have a couple that I would call actual friends and not just acquaintances. But here is the card that I made for a combination of 2 challenges.


So this card is the result of me combining 2 challenges and they are a sketch and a theme challenge. The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches

TMS 494

and this theme challenge from Shopping Our Stash

Image result for celebrate friendship

The image is from Bugaboo Digi Stamps and unfortunately this image isn’t available in the store but there are some other wonderful friendship plus other images here. The paper pack that I used is from My Minds Eye and is called Gnome Sweet Gnome. This pack has been sitting in my stash for quite awhile. If you saw my paper pad stash you would understand why some pads only see the light of day every now and again. I haven’t actually purchased any new pads for quite a while.

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

Birthday, card sketch

Hot Air Balloon Birthday

Hello everyone. The card I am sharing with you today is a type of card that I find hard to make. Male themed birthday cards! I don’t know why these type of cards are hard but they are.  I think I pulled it off with the card that I have made and here it is

The making of this card came about because of the team at Shopping Our Stash Weekly. Their challenge this week is 

and then I wanted to design from a sketch and I found this one

The first thing I did was scavenge through my craft supplies to see what I could use and I found an embossing folder with this Hot Air Balloon as part of the scene. I thought it would go well with the masculine theme. Along with the embossing folder the set also came with these boot prints which I used as the 3 elements on the sketch. 

After embossing the Hot Air image I coloured it in with my Copics.  Then I found some papers that suited this perfectly. It was a 6X6  paper pad called “Up and Away” by Kasiercraft. On the balloon paper I stamped the words relax & enjoy, it’s your day in Kraft coloured ink. Then I also cut some strips of paper from the paper pack and sponged some Rusty Hinge Distress Ink around the edge. I put some foam tape under the boot prints just to give them a little height. I matted each of the main layers with some Maroon layering paper and put it all together.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project today. Please consider giving my blog a like or even leaving a comment. And as always I would like to leave you with this thought for today

Oh this is so true. I had forgotten this for quite a while. After everything that myself and my family had been through in the past little while … I had forgotten that no matter the size of the progress at least it is progress. And I can see that I am further forward than I was even just a couple of months ago.

Have a Happy Crafty Progressive Kind of Day,
❤ Tracy B
