Have your Cake and Ice Cream too

This cheeky monkey really cracks me up, I used him twice on this card as I think it adds a little whimsy making this a cute card for a child. When I started this card it was just going to have the Ice cream Sundae with just a Happy Birthday on the front, then I thought maybe I’ll make a Banana Split, and who loves bananas….. MONKEYS. My weird crafty brain turned a card that might have taken about an hour, into a 3 hour project in which I BROKE my BIGSHOT, I almost cried 😭. (Don’t worry I found a replaced on my local buy and sell facebook page) anyway this is how I spent my day.

I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream.

Who doesn’t love ice cream, I just received this die set and I was pretty excited to use it, because like I said who doesn’t love ice cream. My colour pallet revolved around this fun striped paper which just happened to be slightly sticking out of my crazy paper bin, it must love ice cream too.

Party Animals 2.0- C4C491

So this week Crazy4Challenges challenge is a different one, apparently its national Fried Chicken 🍗 day in the U.S (who new) so this weeks challenge is to create a card with a bird on it. Well, I have a chicken 🐓 and all his barnyard friends. This card was also made as a request, I had a family friend who asked if I could make a birthday card for her grandson, I believe her words were “Can you make a birthday card for my almost-three-year-old grandson, maybe a farm theme” What my crazy craft brain heard was “I need a farm card with every farm animal you have, make sure ist big, bright, multicoloured, with balloons, streamers and party hats……. oh and don’t forget the cupcakes.”   My son actually told me I was insane 🤪hahaha

I made a Party Animal Card a while back that is a little smaller.

Just for You-Double Coffee Cup Card

This year Hubby didn’t want anything special for Fathers Day, he didn’t want us making it a big deal, so instead of a Fathers Day card, I made a “Because I Love You” card. I thought it would be fun to personalize it by making a resemblance to our morning routine (when we are both at home that same time) My teacup, his coffee cup and both our phones. I think it turned out pretty cute.

Basket Ball Pop-Up card

I pulled this card together pretty quick, my daughter needed a Birthday card for a friend who loves basketball and I was trying to think of how I could make a really neat basketball themed card and then it came to me, I could make a pop-up basketball net out of the Coffee Cup Pop-up and I did 🙂  I had to feel my way through making this card as the sizing was a bit off so I had to make some adjustments along the way, but all in all, I think it turned out pretty good.

Whomping Great day

Every once in a while I make a card that I get really excited about and I can’t wait to share but have to wait because I don’t want the recipient to see it before they get it. This is one of those cards. My niece and nephew are both Potter Heads and even though the card is for one of them I knew they would both be excited when they saw it. My challenge to myself was also was to make a Harry Potter Card different than the CARD I made last year and I think I succeeded 😀 🧙🏻‍♂️

Friend to Friend-Sketch Challenge C4C488

Today is Crazy4Challenges day and it is a Sketch Challenge. I was in the middle of making Fathers Days cards and I just couldn’t come up with a Fathers Day card for this sketch, I think the bow and the scallops just had my mind leaning towards a more feminine card, then I got a call from a very dear friend who just called to see how I was doing, so I thought that I would make this card for her.

This is the sketch for the challenge
