Sarah Kay twins up with Double Dutch for this special day!
Okay, I managed to do two cards today.. hip hip hooray! This is very rare as it takes me a couple of hours to finish one (I'm fussy with details!!) One of the cards I can't show it to you today, as it is DT work for Cupcake Craft Challenges... you have to wait till Monday ;) But for this special World Cardmaking day I wanted to post something... and I decided it was time to colour the Sarah Kay image Jean had sent me with the blog candy! I sulked a bit having to use my only remaining Sarah Kay.. but I think it was worth it. Lately I'm finding more skills with colouring with pencils.. I am more able to add the wanted depth and shades that I wish.
I love blue shades (I seem to love a lot of colours lol).. and this came quite nicely! I used Double Dutch sketch and Sarah Kay's True Blue theme for this week. What do you think? Isn'nt it cute and fluffy?? :)
So for this card I used up some RAKs' papers (ones I received from Amanda Mary and Maxine for my birthday) Whita and blue cardstock Sarah Kay image light blue grosgrain ribbon fibres blue adhesive gems round sentiment Cuddly Buddly Nesties Sizzix Tags2 Die Blue ink pads blue pen for faux stitching K & Co sentiment "close to my heart"
Happy a Happy Weekend firends, and may your cardmaking help more and more people to 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!
