SHHH dads belated Birthday card-C4C486

Crazy 4 Challenges day and the theme this week is to create a card using a wood element, it can be wood grain, wood paper, embossing folders or veneer shapes. I started off with the wood patterned paper and then I found some veneer shapes I TOTALLY forgot I had. I knew I wanted to do this chair for my Dads birthday card and I was able to picture it in my head with the cup of coffee and the crossword book (if you know my dad you know he likes nothing more than sitting outside in the fresh air with his coffee and crosswords) but it’s kind of funny how the whole card came to be, as it wasn’t exactly all planned out lol

a Kiss to make it Better-easel card

so I’m going to start off with an apologie, I’m cheating a little on this one and will be posting links to previous posts for some of the directions, also I made this card before I was blogging so there are not any extra photos but it’s pretty simple so it should be ok. I chose this card tonight as it is a card that I am able to cheat a little on as I am STILL dealing with numb fingers on my left hand and tonight my hand is a little achier than it has been and typing kind of sucks:(

Today’s Crazy 4 Challenges challenge is to create a card with a wine theme, apparently according to the days of the year calendar May 25th is wine day 🍷 , who knew 🤷‍♀️ So the planning began, I pulled out my Merry Merlot cardstock, my “Wine Tasters” stamp and my “Wine Charms” die set and this is what I came up with.

Silhouette ThankYou cards

So, I was requested to make three Tae Kwon Doe themed thank you cards, I had actually been asked quite a while back, but life got hectic, and then (as mentioned in a previous post) I had to deal with a pinched nerve (three weeks and I still have numb fingers ☹️) anyway I had to have the cards ready by last Thursday and I needed to figure out how to make 3 cards in a night with limited use of my left hand. I decided to use my Scan N Cut to cut out Silhouettes and these are what I came up (bonus this card design actually yielded 6 cards)

My Babies Grad Card

This is the grad card that I made for my darling daughter for her high school graduation. The colour scheme is a mix of the grads decorations colours and her grad dress. The theme for this year was “Small Town Roots” so I added a little bit of a rustic feel by using some wood grain paper as well.

Happy Birthday Shacker Card – Sketch Challenge C4C484

Hello, it’s Saturday so today I have another Crazy4Challenges challenge. This week is a sketch challenge ( for those of you who may not know a sketch challenge is when the team is given a sketch and we have to use the sketch as inspiration to make the card), I also decided to challenge myself by choosing a colour palette that is a little outside my comfort zone. The orange colour is called Tangerine Tango and before this card, I have never used it, it came in mix packs of cardstock and it was accumulating in my drawer so I thought I would give it a go once I found the bright striped paper I was going to use.
