Hi all on this fine Tuesday afternoon (Australia). I finished this card for Seize the Birthday days ago but just getting around to posting it now. . . . my bad sorry. The sketch I had to follow is below my card and it had to be a birthday card for a girl.
I used an October Afternoon paper collection once again as I love OA. That is it for a few days, so until the next time we meet. . . .
Well here I am on a lovely warmish (for the middle of Autumn) Sunday afternoon with another Merry Monday challenge for you. The sketch we were to follow is below my card. I chose October Afternoon paper collection and I love the finished look.
Okay I have another card to put up but it is due to be up tomorrow so until then. . . .
As promised here I am back with another card challenge for Merry Monday blog. I will have my christmas cards completely made and ready to post before November this year the way I am going lol.
Also for the second week running I got an Honourable Mention over at the Merry Monday blog. I was thrilled to see this as I have very rarely won or been chosen for mention in any card challenge blog which is why I stopped doing them as it seemed to be the same people winning every single time.
But enough of that negative talk needless to say I am honoured to get the mention for the second week running.
Okay that is it for me today I am off to play with some art supplies and my art journal. In the meantime. . .
I am here with another challenge and this time it is the same sketch but making a masculine birthday card over at Seize The Birthday.
I had such fun making this card as I don't normally make male cards but I have fallen in love with this little monster card lol. I have also never before put the abbreviated HB2U on a card but this seemed to suit it just fine in my opinion.
Okay I will be back soon with another finished card challenge. In the meantime. . . .
Hi everyone! Here I am back with another card challenge for Merry Monday. This week it was Tic Tac Toe and I chose the top row of animal, designer paper and ribbon. I love this Inkadinkadoo stamp because I have a dog hehehe and he is small and light brown or tan in colour. I had so much fun colouring him in even though it is a bit rugged lol. I am happy with the finished card no less.
Well once again short and sweet as I do tend to ramble in my posts so I need to learn not to.
Hi everyone! Here I am back with another challenge post of course. I chose to take part in Merry Monday challenge and the theme was to include SNOWMEN which just happens to be one of my fav christmas things even though we are not in winter here in Australia in December it is our summer lol.
Below is the card I made for this challenge which I think is so cute. The stamp set is a Paper Smooches set from my bestie Sherry cause she does know I love them so.
The below image is just to show that the theme was snowmen.
Okay hubby is calling me for dinner so I had better finish this post up. Catch you on the flip side.
Well as promised here is my other card that I made which I love due to the simplicity of it. This card is for the March challenge over at Artful Delight I am loving those enamel dots that are out at the moment or have been for a while but because I haven't made any cards I haven't used any lol.
This is the sketch we were to follow for this month.
I hope you come back again to see what I have created next time. But for now. . .
Hi there everyone. Here I am back with a couple of card challenges. Slowly getting back into the things I love most to do. I have found that my craft room has been so neglected since before Mum passed that is was time to try and get back into it and with the help of my beautiful friend Sherry I have achieved a small measure of success. . .what do they say? Small steps!
This card is for Seize the Birthday and it is the birthday card for a female this week so below please find what I put together, a little rusty still but not too bad. What do you think?
On the MFT Pure Innocence stamp of the little girl I used Copic markers and used my colourless blender marker to make polka dots and to also make the diagonal stripes on the paper dollies. Love the effect.
So I will post the next challenge tomorrow morning but in the meantime. . . .
Happy New Year blogging friends. I hope 2013 is everything you wished for and more besides. I am going to be overhauling my blog in a major way and simplifying it so it doesn't take long to load. I will also be including other things like cooking, preserving and bottling, art journalling etc. So I hope you stay tuned for those positive changes as they occur.
I didn't come anywhere near my blog in December as my Mum passed away on the 7th Dec and I am still trying to deal with the grief of losing her. Some days are good others days are really bad. I feel lost without my Mum here she was a major part of my life. Anyway just wanted to share that now I will get back to my post.
I have chosen Retro Sketches to make a card to start the new year off and it was nice, clean and simple something I need to learn more about. . . .to simplify things more as I said hehehe.
Below is the sketch. . . .
Here is my take on the above sketch. . . .
As I said clean and simple wins the day here lol. I made this while I was skyping with my bestie Sherry.
Okay that is it until tomorrow when I have another card to share with you all.
