Pretty in Pink-C4C498-Sketch Challenge

Happy Weekend, and this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge is a Sketch Challenge. I have a special friend with a birthday coming up so I made this one with her in mind. When creating cards sometimes I try to come up with little side challenges just for myself, and one of them more often than not is to find (and use) something that I’ve had for years and not used previously. So this week I got digging through some Scrapbook Kits that I’ve had for YEARS and pick one out that suited the theme I was looking for. The benefit of using kits is that all of the items in the kit will coordinate with each other so it makes it a little easier and sometimes quicker.

This weeks C4C Sketch

Christmas in July Snowflake card ❄️C4C492

It’s C4C day and today’s challenge is to make a Christmas card, Honestly I have a hard time making Christmas this far in advance, I see people chatting about starting their Christmas cards early so they aren’t so rushed closer to the season but for some reason my brain does not really want to go there. I had actually jumped ahead and did next week’s card first and I still had some of the paper still sitting on my work table. I had originally thought I would water colour my card for next week but hadn’t so my palette with inks in it and paintbrush were still there so I played with it and a piece of watercolour paper, I grabbed my favourite snowflake stamp set, a KB die set and away I went.

“Double Cascading Tag Anniversary Card”

WOW, how’s that for a title. This is another card that I made for a friend to give to her parents for their anniversary. I know some of the panels seem a little random but I will try my best to explain. The mountain scene is a reference to their Honey Moon in the mountains, the little house with the birdhouses is something that the happy couple has in their yard. They work together to make and hang these pretty little birdhouses all over their little garden shed. The last picture is the happy couple just sitting and enjoying each others company. The blank pages are for their children, and their families to sign. This card has already been given and it is my understanding that they quite enjoyed it.

Back to the Beach

So apparently I enjoy making beach cards, this is a card that I made my brother a while back, we spent many hours on beaches when we were growing up. If you are wondering why I have a bear instead of a frog or a crab or something else that one would possibly see on a beach, that’s because on our beaches we were more likely to come across a bear.
