Okay, I'm really sorry, this week I didn't have new cards to show you because today the children will be starting school, and I had LOADS of books to cover (with other loads to come next week!), copybooks, project books and files to organise and cover as well.. pencil boxes to fill, stationery to mark... and so the list does go on and on.
Having said that.. do you think I could have energy to create and craft at the end of the day?? No, I didn't! And yes, I had craft withdrawing symptoms! lol
But I did blog some things, just to keep in touch.. and to show you some stuff! Anyway.. this is the sketch we had to work on for this coming week:
This sketch was chosen by Chris, at Pollicrafts, this month's grand prize sponsor. I don't know about you, but the simpler the sketch is, the more difficult I find it to work with! And I spent almost all week thinking what style I will adopt to interpret this.
Anyway, finally yesterday I came up with this card; with light blue, purple and brown as main colours. I never mixed these colours together, but I like the effect! :) The "I", "heart" and "U" are decoupaged and I glued the surface with a 2 way glue pen, then added fine glitter. I achieved a lovely raised effect.
For this card i used:
DP from stash Sentiment computer generated Large brad Purple pearl brads for tags fine white glitter Prima flowers Brown ribbon Sudio G clear stamp for flourish Black pen for free hand doodling around sentiment Butterfly embellies
I hope to see much more of you lovely creations following this sketch on Cupcake CC You have till next Monday to enter. You can win the grand prize at the end of the month. And while you're there... go and peep on the other DT members' blogs. They have lovely makes to show you. Thanks for looking, and for taking your time to leave a comment. It was highly appreciated God Bless
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
