This time around the card that I am sharing with you is a combination of 2 challenges – a sketch and a theme. I like combining challenges when I can because it can make the card making a bit more of a challenge. And this is the card that resulted in this combination
So as I said this card is made from combining 2 challenges firstly a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches
and then a theme challenge from Time Out Challenges
I do hope that you think that this card suits the theme challenge. I thought that it did because you can love the home you are in because of the people you spend time with there.
I must say that this cards colour combination is something different for me. I don’t do a lot of cards with such muted tones but I feel in love with the papers that are in this papers pack. The paper pack is Twilight by one Canoe two.
This shows the 12x12inch but I bought the 6x6inch because the patterns are sized better for card making. The sentiment is actually one of the cutouts that is included with the paper pad. The word background is made from a stencil and some distress ink. I think that this card could be suitable for many people.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project please consider liking or commenting. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought
Oh today has been bad! My mind/thoughts have been going every where. Probably because I am trying to do too much which means my mind can not settle on one thing. I hope that as I do get some things done things will settle down.
Have a Happy Crafty Kind of Day,

It is so good to be back in my craft space and creating again. Do you ever get withdrawal symptoms when you stop doing what you usually do for awhile? I got this way over the past couple of weeks. I have been crafting but not really sharing but now I am back into it again.
Anywho onto the reason yo stopped by my creation 🙂
This card is digging into my stash in a big way. These papers have been in there since my daughter was little and she is going back to Uni to do her Masters! So you can tell how long these papers have been around.
The card started it’s journey first by finding two challenges from 2 of my favourite places to visit. Time Out Challenge with a theme of Loving and Cute Card Thursday – Anything Goes. But if you have been to my blog before you will know that I love to use sketches to help me figure out placements and I used Freshly Made Sketch #207
As you can see from the sketch to my card they don’t quite match up – this is because of the papers that I had in my stash. I have just flipped the width measurements to make it fit the products that I had. I added the embossed heart which I coloured with some Distress Inks so I had a place for my sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project. I would love to know that you stopped on by so please consider leaving either a like or a comment. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought
I think that this is a fabulous way to live. I am going to try to remember this more during the coming year.

Time Out Challenge – Loving
Another Christmas card finished and I am really happy with how it turned out. On my Christmas card list is a bunch of cat lovers and I am sure one of them will love receiving this.
This card was actually inspired by 2 challenges. The bunch over at Time Out Challenges are asking us to be Colourful for challenge #120 and then I have found a lovely sketch site over at Feeling Sketchy and this is sketch #203
The first is the image from their site the 2nd is my copy with the measurements included.
I think that I have covered the Time Out requirements for being colourful. When I saw that challenge I thought of this image, I’m not 100% sure where I got this digital image from. But I printed it out and coloured it in with my Copic markers. The papers are from my Christmas stash which is shrinking a little but I need to shrink it a lot more.
Hope you like my take on both of the challenges. Thanks for stopping by and having a look at my project. And as always before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought
Oh Snoopy my pal you don’t know the half of it and its not even the end yet! This has been a really really rough week. Hope that your week is going a whole heap better.
Have a Happy Crafty Smooth Kind of Day,
Hello Everyone, I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas. Mine was very low key this year but it was spent with family and friends. First friends at our Church service and then family in Toowoomba, Queensland.
Have you organised your New Years Eve plans yet? I plan on going to our church’s Hope service. It’s a prayer service where we bring in the New Year together praying over our family, friends and Hopes for the coming year.
Today I felt like sitting at my card crafting table and making some cards. This is one of my efforts:
This card was inspired by 2 card challenges.
GAH! Pink Challenge
Time Out Challenge #99
I loved looking through my stamp pile to try and find a Christmas Image that would suit a non-Christmas Card. I found this stamp set
This set if from the wonderful magazine Creative Stamping and this was issue #50. Aren’t the images adorable!! I loved how they included the Chill Out sentiment and other so that this set could be used for all types of different occasions. I am really happy with how this card turned out.
Well I’m off to make more craft!! Either cards or I do have that weaving project I have waiting for me or I might just chill out with my kids. But before you leave please consider leaving a comment or hitting the like button.
And as always I want to leave you with this parting thought:
Have a Happy Crafty Fun Kind of Day
I won over at the Time Out Challenge for this card. What a lovely Surprise!
