Happy birthday card!

OMG it's been FOREVER since I have posted here.  I had such great intention at the beginning of the year and then well that never happened.  It's been quite a year as you would know if you follow me on Youtube.

But it's not the same to actually post a story here.

Anyway I needed to make a b-day card and the image from the East Wind was just PERFECT for this!  You can find her here.  I don't color much with my copics anymore.  Some of my markers are clogging up.... sad really.  I have been doing so much more mix media.

The paper that I used is probably discontinued before  but it was Kaiser Craft Lush.  You might still be able to find some on E-bay.  That's the best to find the stuff that you can't get your hands upon.  That or maybe some destashing.  I think this was the 1st time that I used that paper pack!  How bad is that?!?  I know I used to do so many more cards than I do now.  Now I mostly do videos about using your scraps!  Something that we have loads right?!?  When I started that series I had 3 bins filled to the brink.

So yeah before you go off somewhere else lol here's the card:
I didn't do a lot of embellishments because I really wanted the image to be front and center!  I only added one little lace heart that I purchased at the dollarstore!  I thought that was the perfect embellishment.  The sentiment was from create with TLC but I don't think she still has it in her store.  But you can find her blog here.

So that is is for me.  I wonder if there will be any comments at all this time, it's been so very long.  Not entering this in any challenges.  All the visits will be from you guys that are still following.  Hope that there as still some!

Big hugs and have a great week!

Goodluck card

Hello!  Hope you are staying warm and safe.  We have been battling crazy cold weather here.  Well in keeping with my resolution here is another post just for the blog that won't be shown on my channel.

One of my colleagues gave her resignation before the holidays and her last working day was the 2nd of January.  I figured it would be nice to give her a card signed by the entire department.  So I prepared one.  I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do.  I knew that she loves biking and I had a perfect stamp that had not yet been used.  I believe I had gotten this when it was on special with the thought of making her a b-day card.  Since that is not happening now it was the time to use it because who knows when I next will feel inspired with this stamp.

Don't know about you but there are many stamps in my collection that are not being used and that should be used... all because I don't see the perfect opportunity and since I don't make card as often well this doesn't help.

Anyway here is the card that I made.
The bicycle was stamped over book text.  I used some gel pens to color in the flowers.  The sentiment was also stamped on a book page (I used the 1st page where there's the title and there is lots of empty space that can be used for this).  I couldn't find a good sentiment and I have lots of letter stamps, this was the perfect opportunity to use them.  I have used my spellbinder circle and scallop circle.  And lots of layering.

I really liked how the card came out.  I figured it was elegant and just sweet in general.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Catch the bug blog - Anything goes challenge
  2. Crafters castle - Anything goes
  3. Qkr stampede - anything goes
  4. Moving along with the times - Flowers
  5. Crafty hazelnuts patterned paper - using patterned paper
That's it for me for today!  Have a great Sunday and see you all soon!
