Cupcake Craft Challenge team up with Friday Sketchers!
Ok... it's time to announce CCC blog's 9th Challenge : Turn up the Heat!! It was Jennifer's choice this week :)
This week we have to use heat on our cards... anything from Heat Embossing to anything that makes you think of heat/hot. You can make a card, or any crafty thing that you like, as long as you stay with the theme. Go to the Challenge blog to see what all the DT came up with, and check their lovely blogs for inspiration. I had done some blog hopping a few hours before, and I had decided to team up this theme with the Friday's sketchers sketch for this week. Little did I know that another fellow DT member, Ceal , had the same idea!!! :) lol
Anyway, I used a Sugar Nellie image I received from a swap this month, and embellished with flowers. The image is coloured with water colours and glitter pens. The sentiment is inked with clear ink pad and embossed with Silver embossing powder.
Let's start another week with the right kick! Have a go at the challenge. Use your heat, and fire your energy... make someone smile with a card this week! I'm sending someone a lovely card... just to make her smile!!
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!
