Wow has this month just flown by, I have totally enjoyed hosting for the Crazy4Challenges blog this month and I loved seeing all the cards that the amazingly talented design team have come up with. We are down to the last challenge and for this challenge I thought I would try something different. I had a piece of art where I work and I always found it interesting, It totally wouldn’t work in my living room but I thought that it would make a great challenge. So the challenge was to use this piece of art as inspiration. The designers were able to choose to use it as a colour challenge, design, texture, or however it spoke to them. I’m anxious to see what they did. 🙂
and this is what I came up with

Soooo I’m back, I apologise to anyone that is following about not posting since last week, I’ve had a crazy week, and I’m running crazy behind today. ok, so this weeks Crazy 4 Challenges challenge is to use colour blocking. a lot of the samples that I saw used strips, but I thought that I would try something a little different.
This week’s Crazy 4 Challenge had me shopping at the hardware store lol. The challenge was a beachy theme and to incorporate sand, I could have used real sand, sandpaper, sand stamps or sand images, I choose SANDPAPER, I thought the texture would add to the overall effect of the card and would be a little less messy than real sand. This is a belated birthday card for my Mom and one thing that she enjoys is her almost daily walks on the beach with my Dad and their 2 dogs, Cinnamon and Molly. This is my representation of their beach, with the waves rolling in and the woods in the background.

Here is a flashback Valentines card that I made my Hubby a few years ago. It is a super cute card that I can’t take full credit for as it was inspired by a card that was made by Jennifer McGuire but I’d like to think that the changes that I made help make this card my own 🙂
I am having complete technical issues Today on ALL my devices and the card post I had planned for today completely disappeared and my computer won’t work 😣 so this is what I am able to pull together quickly. Some cute Christmas tags
This card is pretty funny if you happen to know my dog. She loves to sit in the window to wait for us all to get home and she gets crazy excited when we do, and she has little yellow tennis balls all over the house. The dog on the card also rocks from side to side, (like the Hoppy Birthday frog from October 8th/18 and the Snappy Birthday crab from August 11th/18)
