Christmas Critter Card

Hello! The month of July is almost over and I finally made this Christmas Critter Card for a few Christmas challenges. At the beginning of the month I intended on making several Christmas cards, but I just couldn't get motivated. So, I guess one card is better than none. 😊

This Christmas Critter Card features images from Hello Bluebird. Every image except the bunny is from the Christmas is Coming stamp set and the bunny is from the O Christmas Tree stamp set. Copic markers were used to color the images and the coordinating dies used to cut them out. Everything was adhered flat onto a piece of snowflake paper from the Winter Market paper pad by Carta Bella. Well, that's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.

Feel Better Card - TMS #616

Can you believe it's the last Tuesday of July? Time keeps flying by! I hope you're ready to join us for another sketch this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches. The sketch was designed by Debbie Foster and the design team created a variety of inspiration. To see the sketch and for all the challenge details click HERE. I hope you feel inspired to play along. 

Lately, I've needed several feel better/get well cards and my stash is very low. So, I made this Feel Better Card using a sentiment stamp by Stampendous! and patterned paper (bandaids) by Doodlebug Design from the So Much Pun paper pad. To keep the banner element of the sketch I moved it behind the sentiment and that's it. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Wild Day Card

Hello and happy Wednesday! It always takes awhile for new products to arrive with the slower shipping times, but my new Lawn Fawn order finally arrived. So, I made this Wild Day Card using the Toucan Do It stamp set. All images were stamped with Memento black ink and colored with Copic markers. The polka dot paper is from the new Watercolor Wishes petite paper pack. This card is one I'll probably never give away, I just love it and it took forever to make. 😊 Maybe, someday, I'll make a duplicate to give away. Do you keep your favorite cards? Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.

Sending Love Card - TMS #613

Hello! I hope you're doing well and ready to play along with this weeks sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. The sketch was designed by me and I had squares on the brain that day. It's a great sketch to use paper scraps or try some fun ink techniques like Debbie did on her card (click here). Don't get stressed about the size of the squares, just give it a try and link your creation to the challenge by 8 pm EST on Sunday. For all the design team inspiration and challenge details click HERE. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day! 

This Sending Love Card is entered into the All Things Feminine challenge at Watercooler Wednesday.

Big Hugs Card

Good day crafty friends! My hubby went back to work a couple of weeks ago after having knee replacement surgery. I thought I would feel more creative once he went back to work, but I didn't. So, I binge watched the entire tv series of Covert Affairs. When I found the show on the Peacock streaming channel it said there was only 27 days to watch for free, so I took them up on this challenge and watched the entire series (5 seasons) in 27 days. I had never binge watched a show to this extent before, but at the end of each episode I wanted to watch the next one. Now, I'm done and I can get back to making cards.😊 

This Big Hugs Card was made using products by Lawn Fawn. I love the sending big hugs die and was inspired by a card made by Audrey Tokach. The images were colored with Copic markers and everything was adhered flat for easy shipping. I'm entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes) and the Cute Card Thursday Challenge (Anything Goes). Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
