Another Birthday oh my

Hello!  I'm back with another birthday card.  Told you last week that I had LOADS to do... I wasn't lying lol  I wanted to make this one all weekend but I felt really bad... to the point that my daughter actually forced me to stay sitting down doing nothing.

Not easy getting old, body parts hurt.... and blood pressure goes haywire on you for no apparent reason just here and there....  oh well that is life isn't it. And speaking of getting old here is the birthday card that I was talking about.  I used another fabulously glamourous girl from Sandra Caldwell called Miss Lula Mae.  She's on special until tomorrow at 1.5$ what a great deal here.  And she's on special because there's a contest on FB group page to use her!!! That contest also ends tomorrow.  So join in!!!  You will see the link in the challenges that I'm entering because of course you KNOW I will be joining in.

Now there's also over at Outlawz for the entire month a sponsoring from Sandra for the sketch challenge.  So I figured I would use that fab sketch this week again. It really helps because I haven't been doing many cards recently so it's great to have a starting point.  And my card from last week was showcased this week!!!  I was super excited about that.

I had a strip of paper (maybe it was given to me... I don't remember) and it was 2 sided.  Just perfect for this card.  That was the starting point.  Then I really wanted to punch this up a bit hence the yellow :)  I was really wondering what to use for the corner instead of a flower because I wanted it to stay fairly flat (it's going oversea...).  When looking around I found a jar of buttons of odd shapes that I had gottern as a gift from my dad going to garage sale!  Score!!!  The image was colored with my copics.  I added gel roll pen on the glasses and the jewelry.  And the glasses where layered with glossy accent.  The sentiment is from Imagine that.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Outlawz challenges sketch challenge
  2. Sandra Caldwell FB group - glam girls
  3. Corrosive challenges - Anything goes
  4. Crafty friends challenge blog - Anything goes
  5. Brown sugar challenge - Rhinestone and/or ribbon - went with ribbon
That's it for me for tonight!!!  Hope you have a great evening.

Birthday card

Hello!  There's always a need for new b-day cards.  And when you find images that are on special at 1.5$ well that is even better!  The card that I made is using a great image called glamour nana it's from Sandra Caldwell and you can find it here.

And right now she's sponsoring over at Outlawz sketch challenge so it's a great opportunity to win more fabulous images!

I decided to play along with the sketch this week (something that I had not done in quite a long time!)  because I really need some b-day cards for the upcoming months.  So it was perfect.

Here's my card
I colored the image with copics and then fussy cut her out.  The glasses were covered with some glossy accent and I put some gel roll pen on the earings as well as on the glasses.  It doesn't really show on the picture but they are all shiny.  The sentiment is from my good friend Lisa Decosse, she had provided me with a bunch of different bonne fête sentiments!  The paper is from a freebie pack received with a subscription to Quick cards.  And I finished this card with a bit of washi.

Dreams demand patience - The East wind

Hey everyone!  Happy hump day!  Hope your week is great so far.  I can't wait for the weekend for more play time lol but so far the week is still good.

Today I'm here to share with you 2 new digis from The East Wind.  One that you can get as a Freebie if you are registered for the newsletter here.

For that one I decided to make a journal spread and just have fun and also remind myself that it will take time and patience to make my dreams come true but they will happen!

So here is the video if you want to see it:
And here is the spread.

I used my dylusions paints for this I hadn't played with them in a while.  I added some stenciling.  The dreams is a project life card that I thought was perfect for this and was actually the color inspiration for this spread.  The image was colored with my copics.  I stamped using my rubber placemat.

And here is the 2nd make that I did for today.  This time it's using a brand new digi that you can find here
I used this image to make a divider for my happy planner.  I just HAD to play with this image since my sign in the Chinese horoscope is the Rooster :)  I used my Spellbinder Big oval die to cut out the shaper under her.  The tab was made with a studio calico die and I added a text to it that was typed with my dad's old typewriter!  Love love it.   The image was colored with my copics.  The proverb was stamped with little letter stamps that I purchased way back at Michael's (took forever to write this and boy oh boy was I nervous to make a spelling mistake!!!  I had written it on a piece of paper as well lol).

I'm entering this makes in the following challenges:

  1. Addicted to stamps-challenge - Make your mark - both would apply for this but I will use the journaling page for it.
  2. Crafting by designs - Anything goes
  3. Crafty creations challenges - Anything goes
  4. Creative moments - Anything goes
  5. The house that stamps built - Anything but a card
Have a fabulous Wednesday night!!!
