Well this card was quite the challenge, actually it turned into 3 challenges, 2 planned and 1 not so much. It is a weekend post so it is obviously a Crazy4Challenges post. This weeks challenges is a design challenge and the design is below. Challenge number 2 was a challenge that came about by Karen Burniston herself. A few weeks back I posted a question on her PoP up Peeps facebook page. I was in the process of making a Photo Collage card and I noticed it was making a scraping sound, so I asked if I was doing something wrong or if there was a way to prevent the scraping sound. Karen replied that the scraping was normal and she challenged me to make the sound part of the design of the card….. so I came up with the cat clawing the wall. Challenge 3 is not as fun. I have been dealing with a medical issue that at the moment greatly limits the use of my left hand. I had most of the card finish and most of this blog as well earlier in the week, but it was a challenge getting it finished. And as I sit here typing with my one good hand (good thing I’m right handed) I know the rest of this post may have a little less typing LOL,
my take on the design challenge

I’ve been pretty busy the last few weeks making some pretty detailed cards, so it has been difficult to actually blog, stay tuned there are some interesting cards coming ( I also work full time)but here is one I am finally able to post. It is the weekend so that means it’s time for the Crazy4Challenges challenge and I created this card for that challenge. So apparently September 15th is International Dot day, so the challenge was to incorporate dots into my design. Some are obvious and some are so itty bitty you may not notice unless I point them out, But they are there. This card was a special request from my coworker Katherine to her sister, and some of the little elements added were suggestions from Katherine to make the card a little more personal. so here we go, can you see all the dots…

So this week Crazy4Challenges challenge is a different one, apparently its national Fried Chicken 🍗 day in the U.S (who new) so this weeks challenge is to create a card with a bird on it. Well, I have a chicken 🐓 and all his barnyard friends. This card was also made as a request, I had a family friend who asked if I could make a birthday card for her grandson, I believe her words were “Can you make a birthday card for my almost-three-year-old grandson, maybe a farm theme” What my crazy craft brain heard was “I need a farm card with every farm animal you have, make sure ist big, bright, multicoloured, with balloons, streamers and party hats……. oh and don’t forget the cupcakes.” My son actually told me I was insane 🤪hahaha
I made a Party Animal Card a while back that is a little smaller.
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
For you cat lovers, here is a birthday card. What this post doesn’t show (I don’t have the ability to post video) is that the kitty is on a spring mechanism which makes him wiggle. It’s pretty cute if I do say so myself.
Hello, today I’m sharing a card that I made for my daughter to give a friend. It was a winter birthday so I chose to do a winter scene. When making this card I originally made the inside too big so the cat ears were visible when the card was closed, so I added the teal borders to make the card bigger, which in the end made the card a little brighter and better. It just goes to show that sometimes a mistake can turn a project into something better than it would have been if you just keep working on it and use your imagination.
