Peek-a-Boo Monkey-C4C523

This card is a bit of a stretch Lol, Apparently February 22 is “Walk the Dog” day. So the challenge this week is to put a dog or any kind of pet on your project. I know most people don’t have monkeys as a pet but I wouldn’t a pet monkey be fun. Lol I was going to put a dog popping out of the box but I thought the monkey is just so much cuter 🐵

This card is so cute, and all the fun is in the reveal. To see a video of this card in action please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram

Happy Belated Birthday, We Wish You

I am sooooo anxious to share this card. I had the Yoda design in my head for a while but was unable to make the card right away, then I made the card but was unable to share as I wasn’t able to give it to my son right away. So now I am good to go.

The fun is really in the POP, to see this card in motion please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram. Feel free to join my Facebook group if you would like to share your own crafty creations.

Out of this World-Valentine C4C522

Ok, I’m back, I think 😬. I’ve been trying to get into my craft room but I still have limitations but I think I’ve got it worked out. I was posting three times a week, I feel realistically I can probably do two posts per week. I’m going to continue with the Crazy4Challenges weekend challenges, and I would like to create another blog probably earlier in the week. As I start feeling better I will work my way back into a third post per week. I appreciate everyone who has been taking the time to check out my blog.

This post is actually a day late 😬. This is my card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge is a design challenge and this is what I came up with.

I’m Hooked on You

I am so sorry for being M.I.A. these last few weeks, I have been dealing with this issue I’ve been battling with for quite a while now. I don’t usually put my life out on the Internet but I thought I’d let my followers know that I have a protruding disc in my neck which causes me to have quite a bit of constant pain down my left arm. It is making it very hard to be in my craft room, and really hard to type a blog. I’m on the mend and I’m hoping to be back in action within the next few weeks. I’ll post what I can when I can and hopefully I can get rolling again soon. Thank you for your patience and for sticking around.

I’m so sad that I haven’t been able to create all the fun valentine cards I was hoping to create this year. The card I am posting today is a card that I made last year but couldn’t post because I didn’t want to give the surprise away so I’m posting it today. I didn’t take as many photos last year as I do now so I just created this blog the best that I could with the photos that I have and my limited mobility (thank goodness for talk and text LOL) This blog is short and sweet but I hope you like it.

So Glad We’re Friends

I am disappointed to say that I was unable to create a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. I am still down to one arm and I haven’t been able to go down to my craft room and of my completed cards I didn’t have one that fit the challenge, so I am posting a birthday card that I made and had to wait for my friend to received it in the mail before I posted. So here is a card I made for one of my oldest and dearest friends, Kristeen and I have been friends for longer than I can remember, so this card had to be special. This is what I came up with.

All the fun is in the motion, to see a video of this card please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram. Feel free to join my Facebook page if you would like to share your own creations.

Purrrrfect Together C4C518

Well this card was quite the challenge, actually it turned into 3 challenges, 2 planned and 1 not so much. It is a weekend post so it is obviously a Crazy4Challenges post. This weeks challenges is a design challenge and the design is below. Challenge number 2 was a challenge that came about by Karen Burniston herself. A few weeks back I posted a question on her PoP up Peeps facebook page. I was in the process of making a Photo Collage card and I noticed it was making a scraping sound, so I asked if I was doing something wrong or if there was a way to prevent the scraping sound. Karen replied that the scraping was normal and she challenged me to make the sound part of the design of the card….. so I came up with the cat clawing the wall. Challenge 3 is not as fun. I have been dealing with a medical issue that at the moment greatly limits the use of my left hand. I had most of the card finish and most of this blog as well earlier in the week, but it was a challenge getting it finished. And as I sit here typing with my one good hand (good thing I’m right handed) I know the rest of this post may have a little less typing LOL,

Carried Away Valentine

Ok, I know it’s a bit early but I’m in a Valentine mood, so I went digging through the Valentine card photos that I made last year but hadn’t posted. I don’t generally like to post a card before the recipient receives it. So I’ve got a few from last year kicking around. Today’s card is the card I made for my husband last year. Looking back at the photos I realize either I didn’t take many or I thought I had posted this card and had deleted them all. As there are no photos of me actually assembling it so I will give the best explanation that I can.

The fun is in the motion. To see this card in motion please check out my Facebook page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. The video can also be found on my Instagram

Pop goes the Snowman-C4C517

I am so excited to show off this card, I think it turned out super cute and I have to thank Karen Ostergard , this months Crazy4Challenges host for coming up with this weeks challenge as I don’t think I would have thought to make this card without it. So you are probably wondering, what is this weeks challenge and it is…..BBRRRR. it’s cold outside in most of the Northern Hemisphere or it’s quite warm in the Southern Hemisphere. Do a winter themed card if you live in the north and a summer card themed card if you live in the south. Well I live in the North so winter card it is, but at first I was a little stumped as Christmas just past and I didn’t want to make a card that looked to Christmasy. Then I saw a Surprise Ball Valentine video from Karen Burniston that gave me the idea to make this fun snowman, and here it is.
