Another week has gone by, and I didn't have any chance to make a card from last Sunday! That wasn't such a lovely week(from that aspect, because obviously I made more important things!! :)! But I did post, but I was disappointed a bit as I only had few comments that gave me feedback about the subject I asked help for. Anyway, here is another week and it's Monday! :) That means another Cupcake Craft challenge. This is already the 12th Challenge, and this week's it was Lauren's turn. She chose the theme Spots and Dots.
We'd like to see lots of large, small spots and dots on your creation. You can make a card, ATC, alter something, but it has to have spots!!
While I was going through my papers to choose a spotty one, I found this blue dotty and spotty lively Paper. It's cute and makes you feel full of life :) So I had to find a cute and lovely image to go with it. This cutie hedgehog was shouting to be coloured. First I said no, and put him aside to chose a Magnolia (yes, one of the lovely new ones that arrived this week at my home) :) but Mr.Hedgie wouldn't let me!! He got stubborn, and gave a temper tantrum!! He said he was also ready stay still and to pose for the photo, and darling he did!! :)
He's quite a cute one, and he looks so comfy!! Ahhh he just knows how to relax :)
Anyway, I hope it inspires you to go and look for some spotty papers and embellies, and take part in this week's challenge. Next week it will be my turn to decide the challenge, and I already have something prepared for you! I will try to make a sneak peek this week! ;)
I also made some hand stitching in this card. I love this technique, I find it creates a lovely feel and effect on the project. Now off to clear up the mess :) Have a lovely week friends! Take care, and show your loved ones how much you care for them :0) 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!
