Have a Happy Super Duper Crazy Amazing Birthday-C4C533

Hello, sorry it’s been a week again, I have been busy making cards, but they are cards I am unable to post yet, plus I am still working full time and it’s been hard to fit it all in. Hopefully soon I can get back to posting twice a week. Anyway I do have a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. This Saturday is “Free Comic book day” so this weeks challenge is to be inspired by a comic book. Hmm I don’t know much about comic books except that most Super Hero’s originally come from comic books sooooo that’s what I went with. I do know that my characters are from DC and Marvel and technically they wouldn’t be together but this is my card and all super hero’s are friend in my world lol. I also need to say that the characters are cased from a lady named Laura Robinson who shared them years ago, I originally made THIS card. (To see Laura’s characters scroll to the bottom)

Here is my card

No Border Hoppy Birthday Shaker card-C4C532 🐸

I’d like to start by apologizing for being MIA for the last week, I’ve been working on some pretty detailed cards, and I’m still working full time so my Craftroom time as been pretty limited. This is my last weekend of hosting the Crazy4Challenges blog, it was so much fun, I can’t believe we are almost done with April (where did it go 🤔) on with the challenge, so apparently, according to the days of the year calendar April 25th is save the frogs day so this weeks challenge is to make a card with a frog 🐸 on it. I also decided I needed to make a “No Border” (at least on the sides) shaker card 🤯

Pop Up Birthday Surprise-C4C531

Hey hey hey TGIF is all I have to say, This is week three of me hosting for the Crazy4Challenges challenge blog and week three is always a sketch challenge. When I came up with this sketch I was looking at my bowl of seldomly used washi tape, and thought that this design would lend itself to using some of that up. Lol. So this is what I came up with

Raining Rainbows C4C531

Hey all, this is week 2 of me hosting the Crazy4Challenges challenge blog. This is so much fun. You know what they say “April showers bring May flowers” so this weeks challenge is to have rain 🌧 or a rainbow 🌈 on your card. I decided to have a bit of both. Last fall I made a Magical Rain card I really liked how it turned out so I thought that I would make a different version. I thought it would be really neat as a rainbow, I also changed the size of the card and the angles and this is what I came up with.

This card looks so much better in action so to see it in action please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram account.

Bright Puzzle Swing Card-C4C529

Hello, hello, hello and welcome to APRIL yay, I am this months hostess for the Crazy4Challenges blog and I am so excited. April is my favourite month, 🤔 it’s my birthday month, it’s got April Fools day 😜, it should be the beginning of spring (in Canada not always ☹️) and it is also Autism Awareness month. Autism Awareness is a cause that is very close to my heart so I chose the logo as this weeks challenge. The designers were to use the logo anyway they wanted, they could have used it for a colour challenge, a design challenge, or any way that the image spoke to them. Here is the logo

And here is my card

Hope things start looking UP! C4C528

Hello, let me start by saying that this card almost felt like it needed to be made, It was like as I started getting the idea it just almost made itself. Maybe it was because the movie had been playing at work for about a week, maybe because balloons make me happy and I feel the need to share a bit of happiness when there is so much sadness and worry going on in the world right now. I can’t even think of who I would send this to because I want to send it to everyone I know and even those I don’t. Hopefully this card puts a smile on someone else’s face🎈🏠😊

This card was also made for the Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge was to make a gate fold card. That is a card that folds in from both sides and the opening is in the middle. I just turned mine sideways. Lol.

All the magic is in the motion, some of the balloons actually move up and down when the card opens and closes please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram to see the video. Feel free to join my Facebook group if you would like to share your creations.

Surprise Elephant Birthday Card-C4C527

Welcome to the weekend Woo Hoo, is it just me or was this a really long week, wow. With all the craziness going on right now with the COVID-19 I am looking forward to a quiet weekend and hopefully some time in my craft space. I am so anxious to share this card, it cracks me up every time I open it. Lol 😆 I have been looking forward to making this card ever since I saw Karen Aiken’s Monkey Card for some reason I kept thinking the ovals would make great elephant ears.

This card is also a Crazy4Challenges challenge and this weeks challenge was a design challenge. I had to use a sketch for the front of the card and I was free to do the inside however I wanted. And this is what I came up with.

The Gangs All Here

Ever since Karen Burniston came out with the fun Surprise Ball pop up there have been so many fun animal cards. I have a friend who asked if I could make her a Long Horned Cow so I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to try my hand at a double surprise pop up animal. I thought he was lonely so I made him some friends 🐑🐓🐐🐖🐎
