So this is the last Crazy4Challenges challenge of the year, our challenge this week was to choose a design from one of the previous design challenges, and I decided to use my Surprise Ball pop up to make it a little more interesting.
I chose do to the C4C484 design, I decided to make the largest circle into a window and make it a pop up card.

I finally got my Christmas cards done (yay me 50 of them) so I finally get to play with this fun Photo Collage Pop up die set (early Christmas present 🙂 I also had to make a card for this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge. This week’s challenge was to use my favourite Christmas stamp set and or Christmas die set to create a Christmas card. Hhmmmm a favorite was so hard to pick. I have always loved snowflake stamps and over the last 13ish years I have accumulated a few so I picked out one that was a little larger than the rest and went with it, and I also thought snowflakes would work well on the pop-up mechanism, so this is the card I came up with.
the magic is in the motion, if you would like to see this card in action please check out my Facebook page. Feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations.

Wow has this month just flown by, I have totally enjoyed hosting for the Crazy4Challenges blog this month and I loved seeing all the cards that the amazingly talented design team have come up with. We are down to the last challenge and for this challenge I thought I would try something different. I had a piece of art where I work and I always found it interesting, It totally wouldn’t work in my living room but I thought that it would make a great challenge. So the challenge was to use this piece of art as inspiration. The designers were able to choose to use it as a colour challenge, design, texture, or however it spoke to them. I’m anxious to see what they did. 🙂
and this is what I came up with

Hello, we are working our way through November, and I am on week 4 of hosting the Crazy4Challenges blog. I was trying to be creative with my challenges, so for this week I challenges the group to use a card that had been given to them as inspiration, it was allowed to be a homemade card or a store bought card. I choose a store bought birthday card I had received from my children, I like monochromatic cards, and this one had a peek-a-boo window that I thought would be fun. I added a pop out arm to create a mobile 😊
Hello, hello, hello, it’s that time again, I am having so much fun hosting Novembers Crazy4Challenges challenges, this weeks challenge is a design challenge. I have to say I find the design challenges the toughest, I’m not usually a planner, I’m using a wing it and see it where it goes type of gal but I think I pulled this one off ok. This is the design that I came up with.
Here we go, rolling into week 2 of Hosting the Crazy4Challenges challenge blog. I love texture, sometimes it’s nice to have a card that you just want to touch, and sometimes it just adds that extra little touch, so this weeks challenge is to add texture to your card.

Happy November, and welcome to the weekend. With the weekend comes a new Crazy4Challenges challenge and I am excited to say that I am the host for November. One of the benefits of being the host is that I get to choose the challenges : ) According to the days of the year calendar November 3rd is CANDY Day, what fun, so this weeks challenge is to have a candy themed card……. and this is what I came up with.
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.
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.
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.
