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

Ok, I know it’s a bit early but I’m in a Valentine mood, so I went digging through the Valentine card photos that I made last year but hadn’t posted. I don’t generally like to post a card before the recipient receives it. So I’ve got a few from last year kicking around. Today’s card is the card I made for my husband last year. Looking back at the photos I realize either I didn’t take many or I thought I had posted this card and had deleted them all. As there are no photos of me actually assembling it so I will give the best explanation that I can.

So this is the last Crazy4Challenges challenge of the year, our challenge this week was to choose a design from one of the previous design challenges, and I decided to use my Surprise Ball pop up to make it a little more interesting.
I chose do to the C4C484 design, I decided to make the largest circle into a window and make it a pop up card.

I love shaker cards, this one is a little different. Instead of having a large shaker window, I have smaller snowflake sized windows, and the window shapes are cut through the front and middle pf the card with the shaker bits added to the very back panel.

Here we go, rolling into week 2 of Hosting the Crazy4Challenges challenge blog. I love texture, sometimes it’s nice to have a card that you just want to touch, and sometimes it just adds that extra little touch, so this weeks challenge is to add texture to your card.

Trying really hard to get back on track, well at least this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge is done on time 🙂 it’s the third weekend of the month and that means it is a sketch challenge. I don’t typically make Halloween cards but I thought that I would give it a go. I can’t take much credit for the card as the front is a design challenge and the inside is a close re-creation of a Karen Burniston card.
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.
Well I had a busy weekend making cards, I am currently working on three and not one is finished yet. So I dug into my older cards again (sorry) and I found this cutie, it is a card panel that I used for a gift card. When my kids were younger I would make gift cards like this when I knew that wanted a video game (usually for Christmas) but I wasn’t sure want they wanted or what they may have been getting from family. Much cuter than an actual gift card and it entitled them to one free game. We always wrote a note on the back. I can’t take credit for this dude as I CASEd him from Leena Girsa from alacards.blogspot.com way back in 2013, I tracked down her blog and she still has it posted http://alacards.blogspot.com/2013/03/lots-to-show-you.html there are a few slight differences but otherwise its a pretty close CASE
Wow, I was digging through my cards and I found this one, lol. I use to LOVE punchart. I remember checking blogs, and website trying to find new creations to CASE and even coming up with some of my own. I did not invent these guys, when I made this card I was seeing them everywhere, so I don’t know who the original person one who though a scalloped circle would make a cute Muppet head. lol.
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea……….. So this is a card that I made for my son, back in the day when Sponge Bob pretty much played on a loop at my house. It is not my original idea and back in the day (2010ish) if you googled “Sponge Bob punch art card” you would find dozens of cards very similar to mine, but this is the version that I made.
