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.
to see all the other textured cards made by the very talented design team just hop on over here C4C blog (posts Saturday Nov 9)
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.
So I got the opportunity to make a 90th birthday card for a special Papa. He is a retired farmer who had a soft spot for horses so I thought creating a card with Cocoa the Horse would brighten his day.
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 pretty excited to share this card, I had to wait until after his birthday 🙂 This card is soooooooo fun, if you notice in the photos our little guy in red, and our little guy in green are in different positions, when you open the card one looks like he is jumping up (guy in red) one looks like he is jumping down (guy in green). There is a lot going on in this card but I gotta say, it is really cool.
