Pop Up Birthday Surprise-C4C531

Hey hey hey TGIF is all I have to say, This is week three of me hosting for the Crazy4Challenges challenge blog and week three is always a sketch challenge. When I came up with this sketch I was looking at my bowl of seldomly used washi tape, and thought that this design would lend itself to using some of that up. Lol. So this is what I came up with

Bright Puzzle Swing Card-C4C529

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

Elmos Hip-Hip-Hooray Birthday 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.

Hope things start looking UP! C4C528

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.

Dazzling Butterflies (K.I.S.S) card

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 match

Surprise Elephant Birthday Card-C4C527

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.

The Gangs All Here

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 🐑🐓🐐🐖🐎

Peek-a-Boo Monkey-C4C523

This card is a bit of a stretch Lol, Apparently February 22 is “Walk the Dog” day. So the challenge this week is to put a dog or any kind of pet on your project. I know most people don’t have monkeys as a pet but I wouldn’t a pet monkey be fun. Lol I was going to put a dog popping out of the box but I thought the monkey is just so much cuter 🐵

This card is so cute, and all the fun is in the reveal. To see a video of this card in action please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram
