I needed to make a masculine card for my Father-in-law so I found a nice striped paper and started there. This is my first Rockin Rectangle card and I really like how it turned out, it is a really fun mechanismContinue reading “Happy Birthday Pile of Presents”
Hello, hello, hello and welcome to APRIL yay, I am this months hostess for the Crazy4Challenges blog and I am so excited. April is my favourite month, 🤔 it’s my birthday month, it’s got April Fools day 😜, it should be the beginning of spring (in Canada not always ☹️) and it is also Autism Awareness month. Autism Awareness is a cause that is very close to my heart so I chose the logo as this weeks challenge. The designers were to use the logo anyway they wanted, they could have used it for a colour challenge, a design challenge, or any way that the image spoke to them. Here is the logo
And here is my card

I’ve been fighting a migraine for the last few days so I dug out a card from my Stampin up days. It is sooooo adorable, I just love Elmo. I actually made a stack of these at the time because I made them as part of a card swap. So these are easy to make multiples of and would also make great birthday invitations. If you want to change the colours and a few other small changes you could make any of the characters.Continue reading “Elmos Hip-Hip-Hooray Birthday card”
Hello, let me start by saying that this card almost felt like it needed to be made, It was like as I started getting the idea it just almost made itself. Maybe it was because the movie had been playing at work for about a week, maybe because balloons make me happy and I feel the need to share a bit of happiness when there is so much sadness and worry going on in the world right now. I can’t even think of who I would send this to because I want to send it to everyone I know and even those I don’t. Hopefully this card puts a smile on someone else’s face🎈🏠😊
This card was also made for the Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge was to make a gate fold card. That is a card that folds in from both sides and the opening is in the middle. I just turned mine sideways. Lol.
All the magic is in the motion, some of the balloons actually move up and down when the card opens and closes please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram to see the video. Feel free to join my Facebook group if you would like to share your creations.

I’ve been pretty busy (working on a really fun card for this weekends post 🤗) so I decided to post a card I made a while back (2014 😳). This is a back to basics kind of card with a little technique thrown in. If you look close I highlighted different spots on the butterflies with different colours of glitter. I found a way to colour my clearish Dazzling Diamonds glitter to match what ever colour of ink I was using. There wasn’t as many fun colours back then and even now sometimes it’s hard to find that exact matchContinue reading “Dazzling Butterflies (K.I.S.S) card”
Welcome to the weekend Woo Hoo, is it just me or was this a really long week, wow. With all the craziness going on right now with the COVID-19 I am looking forward to a quiet weekend and hopefully some time in my craft space. I am so anxious to share this card, it cracks me up every time I open it. Lol 😆 I have been looking forward to making this card ever since I saw Karen Aiken’s Monkey Card for some reason I kept thinking the ovals would make great elephant ears.
This card is also a Crazy4Challenges challenge and this weeks challenge was a design challenge. I had to use a sketch for the front of the card and I was free to do the inside however I wanted. And this is what I came up with.
This card is so much better in a video, so to see this card in motion please check out my Facebook or my Instagram Please feel free to join my Facebook page if you would like to share your own crafty creations

Ever since Karen Burniston came out with the fun Surprise Ball pop up there have been so many fun animal cards. I have a friend who asked if I could make her a Long Horned Cow so I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to try my hand at a double surprise pop up animal. I thought he was lonely so I made him some friends 🐑🐓🐐🐖🐎Continue reading “The Gangs All Here”
Ok, sorry I’ve been slow posting this week, I have a pretty big card in progress, it’s just taking a little longer than I thought to finish, but first I have this weeks Crazy4Challenges card to post. According to the Days of the year calendar, today is White Day, apparently in countries where Valentine’s Day is observed by women giving chocolates to those they love White day is the day they get the return on that investment, for our challenge this week we have to create a white on white card. I decided to make a Wedding card.

This is a card I made by request. I was ask to make a card similar to this card. Whenever I get a request to make a card based on an other card I always try to make it different or better. When I made the first card and it was finished I had regretted not making the buttons interactive in some way as well. So this card was my second chance.Continue reading “Spin Me Right Round 2.0”
