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

I’ve got a fun Birthday card today, and it is the first time that I used my Triple Flip die sest. This card is for someone who doesn’t like a lot of fuss for his Birthday so I made the front flaps look like a traditional Birthday card with cake, a gift, and balloons, but when the flaps are flipped they reveal the way he would rather take in the day which would be hanging out with his dog, enjoying a cold beer, watching Ghost Hunters lol
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.
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.

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)
Sorry, it’s been a while, I’ve been busy building 🙂
This is a Birthday card that I made for a friend, She has 2 dogs so I thought this would be a card that she would enjoy I tried to make the dogs sort of resemble her dogs, I found out after that the little guy should have had some black on him too. 🙂
Good day all, this card was a request, I had a lady who wanted me to make a card for her daughter. Usually, when I make a requested card I ask for a few ideas so I can make the card more personal. Well, this person requested a “yellow Birthday card, with yellow flowers, a yellow lawn chair, a tree with yellow flowers, a brown and black chihuahua, and the number 43 had to be on it, and white candles. I got everything but the white candles lol. The Butterfly on the front is covering up a glue boo boo, (I wasn’t starting this card over because of a little glue.)
