Pop up Puppy Happy Birthday-C4C535

Woo hoo, it’s the long weekend, I don’t have anything planned but it will be nice to just relax, and get some cards done 😀 I have a LOT of birthdays in May and I’m already almost behind 😬 so I better get busy. Well enough about next week this week I have this really fun card. I needed to make a card for the Crazy4Challenges and this weeks challenge is a design/sketch challenge. I decided to turn the sketch sideways so my card does look a little it different.

This is the sketch

And here is my card

Rainbow Circles slimline Shaker card-C4C534

Hello everyone, I hope everyone is healthy and well. Through this time of Covid 19 I have made a few “Thinking of You” cards. I made this one for a friend who really wanted to send a card to a special loved one in her life. This time is so hard on everyone and I thought this card would brighten someone’s day. It is also Crazy4Challenges time and this weeks challenge is to make a slim line card. A slime line card is a long skinny card, my card is 4”x9” so it fits the challenge 😀

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.

Thinking of you K.I.S.S. card

it’s been a bit since I’ve posted a K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) card. To my new followers I use the turn as a reminder to myself that not every card I make has to be a 6 hour multi layer super pop-up card, it’s ok to take a step back and make something in a half an hour and call it good. The patterned paper that I used for this card is some of my favourite, I just love the colour combo so it was easy for me to pull this one together.

Sand Castle-Beach at the Lake Style-C4C496

I have been anxiously waiting to make this post. I had this idea for making a big sandcastle out of the “Woven Basket” die set and the “Castle Pop up” for a while now and I had to wait for this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge to post it because you guest it, this weeks challenge is to make a card incorporating a sand castle, apparently its “Sandcastle Day” so get out there and hit the beach or craft room and make a sandcastle everybody.

If your wondering what I mean by “lake beach”, I grew up in a town on the North shore of Lake Huron, and although all the “Ocean beach” cards with their crabs and palm trees are quite lovely , I’m more likely to see frogs and cattails near the beaches I’m used to, so this card is dedicated to my home town of Blind River. Miss you like crazy especially when it’s this hot out.

Thinking of You-Daisy Card (the original)

So a few weeks ago I posted a daisies easel card, in that post I mention that I made a card that I couldn’t post because my friend hadn’t received it yet and I didn’t want to give away the surprise but I posted a different card that was inspired by the original card that a different friend of mine wanted for a friend of hers. Well this is the original card, lol that was not confusing at all 🙄

“Thinking of You” Daisy Card

So this card came about because I made a different card….. it’s funny how one thing leads to another. I made a fairly similar card a couple weeks back for a friend that I thought might need a little pick me up, and I showed it to another friend. This friend decided that she also has a friend that might need a little pick me up and asked if I could make her one as well. Well, I’m pretty sure my first friend hasn’t gotten hers yet so I don’t want to post her card online yet and I don’t think my friend’s friend follows my blog sooooo I decided to post hers first. LOL, are you able to follow 🙂 anyway here goes?
