Elf Wishes

Hello Everyone,
I am here today to share a simple card that I made following a sketch. It is another one for my Christmas collection.


I found these cute images in a lift out from a magazine that I bought just this past Christmas and I hadn’t done anything with it. I am trying to work through my stash of papers so that I can feel like I can get some new supplies this coming Christmas. To make this card I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday

So I had a lot of fun playing with this sketch. The background snowflake paper came from another magazine download but I thought it went well with the elf and gingerbread cookie. I decided to leave things quite simple this time because the sketch included banners and such. I hope you like my interpretation of the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card project. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought

Sketch Saturday #554

Hello Everyone,
Today I am bringing you a simpler card it just turned out that way as I was crafting it. It came out different to what I had planned but sometimes this happens while I am creating a project.


I am lucky that I was not needing to make this card for any particular occasion. I try to get ahead and make sympathy cards when I am not needing them. So when I found this image in my stash I thought that it would be suitable to make one. Then I found this sketch from Sketch Saturday and everything just came together

I think that this sketch could be used in either orientation and I will probably use this sketch again but the other way around. The papers that I used are from an older Kasiercraft paper pack called Tiny Woods. Because of the theme of the card I wanted to keep things simpler so I didn’t add the bow because I didn’t think that it suited.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I really appreciate all the comments, likes and visits to my blog please consider leaving something. Before you go though I would like to leave you with this though

Birthday Travels

Hello Everyone,
I have had a productive couple of days but I have only now had the time to upload my creations to my blog. So here is another card that I have been able to make. The card this time around is based just on 1 challenge but I used up supplies that were still sitting on my desk from my previous card which meant that it didn’t go into my drawer of left overs. And this is the card that I came up with

As you can see I used the same backing papers that I used in the previous card but this time everything is matted with brown lightweight card stock.

Yes it is the same sketch as well from the previous card as well. I liked it so much that I wanted to have some more fun with this sketch. The images are actually from the reverse side of the paper sheet that I used so I thought that they suited the card sketch wonderfully. I really liked the idea of making another card that had a similar starting point but I ended up with something that looked different but used up that paper that I was using at the time. For the strip I used this camera washi tape that I had which I thought went with the travel theme of this card.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card project. I really appreciate the likes, comments and views that my blog receives. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought
