Boys and their Toys -C4C572

I am so excited to share this card, I love when I get asked to make a card and when I am first asked I am stumped, I love that I have to think about it and figure it out when I’m not sure how to start. Well this is one of those cards. I was asked to make a fun card for a 2 year old that loves big trucks, like dump trucks and loaders. The only thing is I don’t have ANYTHING in my craft room that has anything to do with trucks or loaders. I wasn’t even sure what mechanism to use to make it move. I also had to make a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge which is a design challenge. It is a bit of a stretch but I think it works.

And here is my double truck card

Happy Bbbirthday- C4C570

Here’s a card I quickly assembled for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. February 5th is Weatherpersons Day so we had to make a card showing some type of weather. Funny thing is I really had no idea what I was going to, I wasn’t feeling particularly creative this week and as I walked down to my craft room I didn’t even have an idea of what I was going to do. I decided to flip through my embossing folders (which I don’t typically use) and I came across the one, I’ve actually never used it before but I thought it fit the theme just right.

Happy 22nd Birthday

So my son just turned 22 and I knew I wouldn’t be able to see him on his birthday so I knew I had to make him something extra special. He has been a Star Wars fan since before he can even remember, but I remember. I remember all the light sabres we had around the house (one of every colour), the voice changing masks and all the Lego space ships, there was so much lego. And the movies, on repeat, first on VHS, then on DVD, and finally on Blu Ray. At first I was a little stumped on what I was going to do for a card until he sent me a photo of his baby daughter wearing a Yoda hat 💖 💚 , and then I knew it had to be Star Wars. This is what I came up with.

Framed Flowers-C4C567

Hello, Hello, I’m here with the first Crazy4Challenges Sketch challenge of the new year. This card is also for one of my oldest and dearest friends and I’m kind of bummed as she hasn’t received it yet (I really don’t like posting a card until the recipient gets it but I chose to use this weeks challenge soooo I don’t have a choice 🙁) This is also the first time I got to use this die set, it was pretty easy so I am already rolling different ideas in my head on how to use it.

Here is this weeks sketch

And this is what I did with it…..

Monochromatic Swirly Shaker Slimline Mobile Card

This is a card that I made a very dear friend of mine, she is also my coworker so she often gets to see my cards before they are mailed out to their recipients and I have to say she is always full of such wonderful compliments I had to make her something special. I really liked how my Snowflake Mobile card turned out so I decided to try it with balloons. I also wanted to try to use the Karen Burniston Swirls Pattern Plate on a slimline card, and I got some realllly pretty glitter for Christmas that I couldn’t wait to use, and Voila I have a Monochromatic Swirly Shaker Slimeline Mobile card. 🤗

(I Post on multiple craft Facebook pages and I like to post my videos there as well but I have been having Internet issues so there is a likelihood I will only be able post it on my personal page.)

Happy Birthday Sis

This is my first card after the holidays, I tend to take a bit of time off the blog during the holidays as I do work retail and the holidays can be quite a busy time for me.

This is the card I made for my sister this past November. I really wanted to make her something special, as we don’t get to see each other very often. So I thought I would make her a card showing some of the things we’ve done together the last few times we’ve been together. The card includes Salted Caramel Martinis, Blueberry tea, Wine, (are you seeing a theme here 🍸☕️🥂, hanging at the beach and ….. she loves plants 🌱 and gives me cuttings that I generally kill ☠️. I also made sure to use a pretty colour combo and some bling.

Pickle Party -C4C561

The thing I love most about being part of the Crazy4Challenges design team is I am challenged to make cards that I might not have ever made. This card is a prime example. If someone would have said that I would make a Pickle themed card AND draw cut and colour my own pickles I would have said that it was probably not likely BUT guess what, not only did I do that I made it into a green monochromatic interactive card 🥒🤯. Apparently today (Nov 14) is PICKLE DAY so the challenge was to make a card inspired by pickles, either by including a pickle, or food that goes with pickles, use the colour green, or incorporate a pickled theme sentiment. I hit most of the marks with this one.

Over the Rainbow Birthday card

Every once in a while I get excited about how a card turned out, and I have to say I am pretty happy with this one. I made this card especially for my niece and I’m finally able to share it. At first I was stumped as to what to make her as I generally go a little over the top when making cards for her and her brother (His last card) But I was inspired by a Shaker Card that I made a few months ago and I wanted to change it up a bit make it bigger and better. And this is what I came up with.

Happy Birthday Bro LOL

Hahahaha this card makes me laugh, it is the birthday card that I made my little brother (in August 😊) who………. HATES garden gnomes 😂 Ever since he was a child he hated garden gnomes, so being the loving older sister I just had to make him this card for his birthday. My only regret was I had to mail it so I didn’t get to see his reaction 😂 This is my Second Garden Gnome, check HERE if you would like to see my first one.

Happy Hedgehog Birthday-C4C558

So I almost opted out of this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge was to use “Copper accents” on a card, the problem was that I was sure I had Copper embossing powder, which I didn’t, I was positive that I had copper embellishments but all I could find was gold, silver, or pewter, but no copper. I was just about to call it when I looked in my washi tape bowl and guess what I found….. copper washi tape, so away I went. As I was digging around I came across some Flower Soft supplies that had been given to me a few years ago but had never used so I figured I give them a go as well.
