Backyard Buddies Birthday Card

There is a bit of a benefit when some of your family doesn’t follow your blog or your social media ( or anything on the internet ), you can post their birthday card before their birthday 😜 sshhhhh

This weeks Craft Roulette Parameters weren’t too difficult, so I decided to give myself a couple extra challenges, 1 was to make a pop-up card that works with the rest of the parameters, and 2 was to make it masculine. CR parameters ⬇️

One of the challenges for me was to find patterned paper that was the colour of “Flowering Fields” but could still be used on a masculine card. The colours on the stripes look like they were painted on.

Vacation at the Lake, designer challenge card

Welcome back, today’s card is for the Karen Burniston design team challenge. This months challenge was “Vacation” and she asked us where we would like to go. I scratched my head a bit with this one because I don’t typically go on “Vacation”, not that I don’t go anywhere it’s just that I don’t typically consider it a vacation. Thinking back on the years of the vacations we went on while raising our children we typically went to my home town. But is “home” a vacation? And the more I thought about it, I decided yes, it was. I was raised in northern Ontario on the north shore of Lake Huron, but I’ve spent my adult life in the Prairies, so when ever I have taken my family there it has always been a fun time, hanging out on one of the many beaches or relaxing at my parents feeding the chipmunks, squirrels and a sneaky racoon peanuts and what ever other snacks that were handy. Once the seed was planted in my heard there was no turning back, and this is what I came up with.

I am not typically a colour artist, but I have been just drooling over some of the amazing cards by Jennifer Webster and thought I’d pull my markers out to add a little dimension to the some of the elements on this card. I don’t give directions as I am just winging it, lol. I used some older Stampin Up alcohols markers and some Chameleon Alcohol Markers

Safari Babies Crib Card

*Hello, hello, and here we are at another weekend. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to make a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge, life has been a bit hectic and I haven’t been in my Craftroom for over a week 😭, so for this week I am posting a card that I made last month. It was a special request and it was a bit of a challenge in itself, I needed to make a Safari Animal themed baby boy card 🤔 which doesn’t seem too complicated but the only “safari” animal I have is a monkey 🐒, soooooo Scan n Cut to the rescue again, and this is what I came up with.

Guess Who Loves You- C4C548

Helllo, and happy weekend. Sorry I have been MIA, but I am here this week with a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges blog challenge. This weeks challenge is a design challenge so I thought it was a good one to jump back in on. I have been completely strapped for time so I decided to give myself another challenge, and that was to ONLY use products that I already have out from other projects. So everything I used are items that I already had either on my work table or things that weren’t quite put away yet, with the exception of the little stamps for the greeting on the front. (I don’t call it My Messy Craftroom for nothing 😂)

Lol if you look close you can see the owls eyes in the blue basket on the right side 🤦🏻‍♀️

Here is the sketch for this weeks challenge

And here is my card
