Sunflower Wreath-C4C508

Welcome to the weekend, and with the weekend comes another Crazy4Challenges challenge. This week’s Challenge is to have a wreath on the card, any style or theme. I’m not quite feeling the Christmas cards quite yet and I have a birthday card I need for someone in the near future so I thought I would make a Birthday card with a wreath. I also that I would make it into an easel card because they just sit up so pretty. This is a wider version of an easel card compared to cards I have done in the past.

Boo to You! C4C507

Trying really hard to get back on track, well at least this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge is done on time 🙂 it’s the third weekend of the month and that means it is a sketch challenge. I don’t typically make Halloween cards but I thought that I would give it a go. I can’t take much credit for the card as the front is a design challenge and the inside is a close re-creation of a Karen Burniston card.

I’ll Always Be….Right There-anniversary-C4C506

So apologies for being M.I.A. this last week, what can I say, life happens and I wasn’t able to get anywhere near my craft room, and I didn’t even have time to find an old card to blog about, but here I am hoping to get back on track. I am also a few days late for the Crazy4Challenges challenge this week. I am going to add my card anyway as I have just finished making it. This weeks challenge was to incorporate music into the card. I needed to make an anniversary card so I decided to incorporate the Lyrics to the song “I’ll Always Be Right There” as this was the song that was played for the happy couples first dance.

Ha Ha Happy Birthday-C4C505

Welcome to the weekend, and another Crazy4Challenges challenge. this weeks challenge was to focus on the Sentiment, to make the sentiment the star of the card. I had to think a bit on this one, but then it came to me when a friend asked me to make a Birthday card for her son. I know him a little and I know that he fairly recently got a tattoo of the “HA HA HA” Joker themed tattoo. We gave him a bit of a hard time about the tattoo so I thought he would get a kick out of a Joker themed card using the same kind of look as the tattoo.

I have to say this card was actually a little frustrating to make at first, as everything I was trying to do was not turning out like I had planned, so I kept putting my mistakes aside and trying again or moving on, but in the end I ended using all the mistake pieces, some extra pieces, I changed ideas as I went, and the card turned out way better for it than I thought it would.

FYI I💙U-C4C-503

Welcome to the weekend and another Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge is a Sketch challenge. I was a little short for time this week as I have been preparing for a really special card that I will posting soon (Monday I hope) so I thought this would be a fun card to make using a Scrapbooking kit. The benefit to using a Scrapbooking kit is that all the cardstock, paper and stickers will coordinate so if you are short on time this is a quick way to pull a card together. I also thought this kit would make a good masculine card to have on hand as I generally have an easier time making more fancy feminin cards that I am generally short of masculine cards. I think this one hit the mark.

Here is this weeks Sketch

Sketch Challenge

and here is the card that I made for this challenge

Pop up, Shaker, 50th Birthday card-C4C502

I’ve been pretty busy the last few weeks making some pretty detailed cards, so it has been difficult to actually blog, stay tuned there are some interesting cards coming ( I also work full time)but here is one I am finally able to post. It is the weekend so that means it’s time for the Crazy4Challenges challenge and I created this card for that challenge. So apparently September 15th is International Dot day, so the challenge was to incorporate dots into my design. Some are obvious and some are so itty bitty you may not notice unless I point them out, But they are there. This card was a special request from my coworker Katherine to her sister, and some of the little elements added were suggestions from Katherine to make the card a little more personal. so here we go, can you see all the dots…
