So Glad We’re Friends

I am disappointed to say that I was unable to create a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. I am still down to one arm and I haven’t been able to go down to my craft room and of my completed cards I didn’t have one that fit the challenge, so I am posting a birthday card that I made and had to wait for my friend to received it in the mail before I posted. So here is a card I made for one of my oldest and dearest friends, Kristeen and I have been friends for longer than I can remember, so this card had to be special. This is what I came up with.

All the fun is in the motion, to see a video of this card please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram. Feel free to join my Facebook page if you would like to share your own creations.

Purrrrfect Together C4C518

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,

Gnome body loves you…..like I do

I think this gnome is so adorable, and once I saw Karen Burnistons Video tutorial on making this cutie I knew I had to give it a go. The Surprise Ball pop up mechanism is what makes this so card so much fun

All the fun is in the pop-up so if you would like to see a video of this card in action please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram. Please feel free to join my facebook group if you would like to share your own creations.

Triple Flip Ornament

While cleaning my craft room 😳 I came across this adorable patterned paper pack that I had forgotten about (who me 😊) and knew I needed to use it, and I thought that the large ornaments would work great on a Triple Flip card, soooo this is what I came up with.

Boo to You! C4C507

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.

FYI I💙U-C4C-503

Welcome to the weekend and another Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge is a Sketch challenge. I was a little short for time this week as I have been preparing for a really special card that I will posting soon (Monday I hope) so I thought this would be a fun card to make using a Scrapbooking kit. The benefit to using a Scrapbooking kit is that all the cardstock, paper and stickers will coordinate so if you are short on time this is a quick way to pull a card together. I also thought this kit would make a good masculine card to have on hand as I generally have an easier time making more fancy feminin cards that I am generally short of masculine cards. I think this one hit the mark.

Here is this weeks Sketch
