The is a simple card that I had made a little while back (preblog so there are not a lot of photos) I really think this shade of Teal against the dark brown is really striking, but then again I have always been a sucker for the teal and turquoises, This size of card is a little different then the size I generally make but I think it works great with the rest of the design.
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
Soooo excited, this week I am a guest designer for the Die Cuttin’ Divas Weekly Challenge Blog, and this week’s challenge is to create anything Tropical or Summer themed, and what’s more summer-themed than a giant sandcastle. I got inspiration from a couple of different sources to make this card. First I saw a tutorial for a sandcastle card from Karen Burniston where she used her Castle Pop-up and her Ice Cream Sundae Pop-up to make an interactive Pop up castle, the only problem was I don’t have the Ice Cream Sundae Pop-up, so I was trying to work it out in my head how I would make a fun but different Sand Castle card. Then I was binge-watching Jennifer McGuire videos and I came across her video on how to make a Bridge Card and I thought WOW the Castle dies would be perfect for this, so away I went.

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.
This is a special post, this post is part of a blog hop that is in tribute to Joanne Grzelak, she was a member of the Crazy4Challenges blog group before I was asked to join, and even though I didn’t get the privilege to know her personally after viewing some of her work I felt I’d like to pay my respects to this very talented lady by joining in this blog hop. We had a few options to choose from and I chose to use one of her cards as inspiration to make my card. After looking through her blog I found this card that she posted on Saturday, May 9, 2015, that she named “The Crazies Appreciate Teachers”
This is my take on Joanne’s 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.
Today is Crazy 4 Challenges day and this weeks challenge is to create a Tri-fold card, it has to have at least 2 folds and 3 panels, and this is what I came up with, it’s kind of a gatefold card with a panel on the left and the right when closed makes a border at the top and the bottom.
I’ve got a quick pair of Thank you cards Today. I was asked to make a couple of Thank you cards for 4H, one of the cows was a tan cow and one of the cows was a black cow, and since I have the KB Brownie the Cow die set I was able to make one of each colour.
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.
