Sand Castle-Beach at the Lake Style-C4C496

I have been anxiously waiting to make this post. I had this idea for making a big sandcastle out of the “Woven Basket” die set and the “Castle Pop up” for a while now and I had to wait for this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge to post it because you guest it, this weeks challenge is to make a card incorporating a sand castle, apparently its “Sandcastle Day” so get out there and hit the beach or craft room and make a sandcastle everybody.

If your wondering what I mean by “lake beach”, I grew up in a town on the North shore of Lake Huron, and although all the “Ocean beach” cards with their crabs and palm trees are quite lovely , I’m more likely to see frogs and cattails near the beaches I’m used to, so this card is dedicated to my home town of Blind River. Miss you like crazy especially when it’s this hot out.

Pull out Flower Pot Mothers Day Card. C4C483

This is week two of my Crazy 4 Challenges challenge. I was originally asked to be a guest designer for the month of May, but I have recently been asked to join their design team permanently 🙂 I am really looking forward to being part of this very creative group of women, and the challenge posts will be posted every Saturday.

This weeks challenge was to make a Mother’s Day card with Flowers. I was thinking back to flower cards that I have made in the past and I came across a style that was popular a few years back where the flowers pull out from the flower pot, revealing the greeting (Pic at bottom of post). They were fairly easy to make but if your measurements were slightly off then the flower pot would be crooked, I thought that I would try using the Woven Basket Pop up die set from Karen Burniston and I am happy to say it turned out better than expected.
