Thanks a Bunch

Hello Everyone,
Another card made from my scraps drawer. But this time I included a new to me image from Bugaboo Images called Flower Teddy. Isn’t he adorable?

07 29 Thanks a Bunch

I coloured in this adorable bear with my Copic markers. This card started with a sketch from Stella Says Sketch #712. And this is my 2nd creation with this sketch.

Stella Says 712

My card doesn’t match the sketch exactly but I do hope that it is still acceptable for the challenge. I was making this card away from my desk and didn’t have the sketch beside me and by the time I realized what had happened, it was too late. I still enjoyed the making of the card because I was able to dig into my scraps drawer again and be able to pull together another card from pieces that were just too big to throw away.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation. I appreciate all of the likes and comments that I get on my posts. Before you go as always I would like to leave you with this last thought.

I'm listening...

Until Next Time,

Birthday Wishes

Hello Everyone,
I am back in my craft space creating on and off again. Lately I am having to be more careful with what I do because of health restrictions this is a learning curve and I think that I am slowly getting used to my new restrictions.

But any who onto this card … I have always loved the fun sketches from Stella Says Sketch so I looked up their latest which is this one.

I can see that I will use this sketch many times because it suits the use of an image. And this is the card that I have made with the sketch.
07 18 Edward Wishes

I must admit that this is one of my favourite Bugaboo Digital Images. Well actually any of the images featuring Edward the Elephant I really love and this image is Edward Elephant – Flower. I have coloured him and the chick in with my Copic Markers then cut him out with my Scan N Cut. The papers are from Kasiercraft and the paper pack is called Hippy Chick which has been sitting in my stash of paper packs.

I want to thank you for stopping in and looking at my project. I hope you will stop by again sometime. Before you depart I would like to leave you with this last thought.

Joy

Hello everyone,
I am back for a second card project for today. It’s so good to be able to have some time in my craft space. But this happens when you don’t have to do school runs and such 😉 And this is my card
12 19 Joy
I really had fun with this one and I think that I may redo this card a couple more times. The image is a digital stamp Christmas Word Joy from Bugaboo stamps. I use this image quite a lot because you can colour it to suit your papers, very handy that! And to start this card off came the sketch
Stella Says 620
And as I have been doing I have included the measurements to make a front for a A6 card. And also any mats are usually 0.5cm bigger.
The image I printed and coloured with my Copic markers and it is backed with a Christmas digital paper. Then I added this to a piece of shimmer Maroon paper and matted this with green paper. The poinsettia is a die cut that I had left over in my Christmas Stash.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project. To let me know that you stopped by please consider leaving a comment. And before you go I would like to leave you with this thought
This is something that I hope to be able to do more of while I am not running to different things over this Christmas/New Year break. I want to do more reading next year – that is a goal for me.
Have a Happy Crafty Kind of Day,

Christmas Joy

Hello Everyone,
I am back with another Christmas Card – I just can’t seem to stop making them 🙂 Looks like I will have enough by the time I have to post them out this year.

This card was actually made with 3 different challenges in mind.
First off we have Catch The Bug Challenge Anything Goes
Saturday WklyCh BB
and then I loved the Stella Says Sketch Challenge #601


and last but not least – AAA Cards #106 Quote

The image is Christmas Word – Joy which you can purchase here from Bugaboo Digital Stamps.  This is one of my favourite Christmas stamps. But I have coloured it in with some Copics – these markers are not new to me but I have never gotten along with them :/ 2018 though is going to be the year that either I become comfortable with them or I am going to have to sell them.  I can not have such a huge investment sitting around doing nothing if I’m not going to use them.

The paper I used behind the main image I coloured with simple children’s markers in an Adult colouring book.  I have a lot of pages that I have coloured and I have decided that instead of them sitting around gathering dust I am going to use what I can in my card making and other paper crafts.  So I get twice the enjoyment out of them – 1st when I am colouring the page and 2nd when I re-purpose them into another project. 😀

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

Have a Happy Crafty Fun filled kind of Day,
