Leaves Thank You

Hello Everyone.
While I was in my craft space I loved the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge so much that I decided to use it again but this time in conjunction with the challenge from Double Trouble Challenge.

This card is made with some supplies that have been in my stash for years and some brand new ones which were gifted to me. So I wanted to send a thank you to the wonderful person who gave them.

The paper pad, Copic markers and ink pads have been in my stash for quite awhile. But the stamps are new. The thank you sentiment is from Paper Rose Studios and the leaves are from a company called Pasttime Crafts. The colours that I used were actually chosen by the image that I chose from the stamp set.

The whole colour combo was decided by the recipe from Double Trouble Thing 1.

From:       The Kitchen at Double Trouble 
Servings:  Unlimited Portions of Fun
Recipe:     3-2-1 Recipe

Ingredients:  3  Colors of your Choice, 2  Embellishments and 1  Stamped or Digital Image 

The 3 colours are brown, green (in various shades) and orange. I have 2 types of embellishments – the straight dark green stickers and the orange circle holographic. I did use 1 stamp image but multiple times – I hope this meet the recipe.

I had so much fun joining these challenges together. I hope that you like my interpretation of these challenges. My wish for you is that you will find yourself doing something that you truly love.

Until my next post,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others.

Sketch Saturday no.619

Hello everyone, I am running it close for uploading this card but I had such fun making the card that I wanted to share it with you all.

07 20 Sk Sat 619

Isn’t this sheep adorable 🙂 This is a digi image from a company that is no longer around but it was perfect for the wonderful lady that I was asked to make if for. This card started with a sketch from Sketch Saturday #619.

This time around I followed the sketch quite closely except for the dots – I did 3 instead of 2 but I didn’t have the sketch with me when I was finishing off the card and 3 are what I usually use.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. Before you leave my blog I would love to leave you with this last thought for this post.

For my southern crafter who are in Winter and for my northern crafter who are dreaming of cooler weather.

Until my next post,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others.

Sketch Saturday 613

Hello everyone, this is going to be a very short post as I am still having problems with my frozen shoulder and also having problems with WP 😦 I really hope that this doesn’t continue.

But anyway onto my card

This is the sketch from Sketch Saturday #613 that I found to use and this is the card that I made using it.


This card uses an old image from Meljen Digital Stamps who are no longer making stamps 😦 But I love the images that I bought so I will still use them.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card project. Before you depart my blog I would love to leave you with this final thought.

Until my next post,
Be kind to yourself and others.

Thanks, Ms. Rachel

Hello everyone, yes I am back with a card project (((insert happy dance))). I made this card for 2 reasons. 1. my daughter requested a Thank You card and 2. most of the challenge sites I usually play along with were hosting Halloween challenges and I don’t do this holiday. But I decided to share my card make anyway because I was so happy to be able to do some crafting again after all the stuff that’s been going on. If you want to know more about this please see my previous post.

My daughter asked me to make her a Thank You card for the Teacher that has been supervising her for her Teacher Prep. This is where student teachers (my daughter) go into a classroom and teach classes and are assessed on their performance by the teacher (Ms. Rachel) who usually teaches that class. My daughter has been in Ms. Rachel’s class for the past month and tomorrow is her last day with her. She has really enjoyed working with Ms. Rachel. And this is the card that I made for her to give to her.

10 31 Art Mug

The artist mug image is from Meljen’s Digital Designs; I love using this image for the artistic people in my world – it suits so many occasions. The paper comes from a pad by Kasiercraft called “The Class of ’82” and it is an old one that has been sitting in my stash for ages. Each of the layers is matted with maroon paper and I added some stars because I like them and they were hanging out in my stash 😀

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card creation even though it isn’t part of a challenge. Before you go from my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

Funny craft memes…round 3!

Until the next time we meet,
Find a way to do what you love.

Falling Leaves

Hello Everyone,
Another card inspired by two card challenges again, this is the 2nd card  I have to go into both of these challenges. I just loved the challenge idea so much and it helps me to build up my made card stash.

So the challenges are

and alsof27dc-2523102

And this is the outcome for the combination of these 2 challenges

The leaf stamp set is an older one from Bo Bunny but it’s one of my favorite ones. So I used some painters tape and scrap paper to mask off an area.

I chose to use 3 Distress Inks to achieve the Teal strip. Leaving the painters tape in place I stamped the leaves using both a Green and Red ink on each of the leaves. I was really pleased with how this turned out I think I may make a couple more using this combination.

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

I am definitely not the same I was at the beginning of this year, month, week or even day. It’s just learning to leave with each of the changes that is hard.

Have a Happy Crafty Fun kind of (changing) Day
