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
and here is the card that I made for this challenge
Too funny, I’ve never needed a basketball card before and then I needed 2 in one week and of course I couldn’t make the same one twice. Actually, I had already planned this card for my son’s friend but his birthday was after my daughter’s friend so I came up with a different CARD for him and kept my original plan this card. It’s hard to see in the photos but the basketball arm moves up and down and the basketball also spins. I will have a video posted on my Facebook at My Messy Craftroom
This week’s Crazy 4 Challenge had me shopping at the hardware store lol. The challenge was a beachy theme and to incorporate sand, I could have used real sand, sandpaper, sand stamps or sand images, I choose SANDPAPER, I thought the texture would add to the overall effect of the card and would be a little less messy than real sand. This is a belated birthday card for my Mom and one thing that she enjoys is her almost daily walks on the beach with my Dad and their 2 dogs, Cinnamon and Molly. This is my representation of their beach, with the waves rolling in and the woods in the background.

I am so happy with how this card turned out. The hummingbirds are super cute and I like that they are a surprise when you open the card. The one hummingbird on the right actually goes up and down when the card opens and closed.
I have a fun birthday card today, my son’s friend asked if I could make a birthday card for his sister, his request was, could it have a horse, possibly a barn, and some kind of pop up/fun feature, and I said “Hay ya” 😂
Sooo this card started off as a joke, It’s a little on the corny naughty side so if you are easily offended this card may not be for you. So a friend and I were tossing around ideas for a card for me to make for her to give her boyfriend for Valentines day, well we got searching on google and came across a cartoon version of this card (isn’t Google great, card will be posted at the end of the post) well we both laughed because her boyfriend is a carpenter, and she thought he’d think it’s funny so away I went to my paper room. You can’t tell in the photo but this is an interactive card, the hammer actually swings up and down.
I am pretty excited to share this card, I had to wait until after his birthday 🙂 This card is soooooooo fun, if you notice in the photos our little guy in red, and our little guy in green are in different positions, when you open the card one looks like he is jumping up (guy in red) one looks like he is jumping down (guy in green). There is a lot going on in this card but I gotta say, it is really cool.
