skateboard

Tonight I'm doing a boys card but with bling ;)  I did a card with my great digi image from Bugaboo LDskateboard.  I had not yet used him and he was just perfect for the challenges I wanted to enter. I had seen on Daring card makers that they were doing a challenge about sportman.  This card was perfect for it.  And if I deciphered properly I think the sponsor is again the great Tea house bridge.


To top it off my kids have friends b-day coming up so I'm sure that I will have a use for him soon:
I used one of my cuttlebug embossing folder to create the texture under my little skateborder.  And colored him with copics.  The paint like border is from using a Martha Stewart punch.

I followed this sketch:

I'm entering him in the following challenges:
  1. Paper playtime - Anything goes
  2. Catch the bugblog - embossing with bling
  3. Stella-says-sketch - for the sketch
  4. Crafty card makers - for the boys
  5. Send a smile 4 kids - one for the boys (my 3rd entry)
  6. Craft your days away - just for children
  7. Going-buggy - for a child
  8. Daring card makers - sportsman
So that's my card for the night ;)  It was great fun to do and even my teenage boy liked... so I suppose that's a good sign for the little kid that I will give it too lol

Have a great night folks and thanks for all the comments!

kid's birthday card

For those of you who have read my preceding blogs, I just want to start this one with news from my MIL (mother-in-law).  I believe that all the positives vibes have been helping her!  She's not suffering right now.  She has regained her speech.  The eyesight is not there... but at least she's doing better for now.  She will not be getting better that we know... but at least she's not in pain.  We have no idea at this moment how long we still have her in our lives.  But we are treasuring every seconds.

My husband came back home after spending the weekend there with his siblings.  It was quite an emotional time for him.  The kids and I were really glad to see him back home.  We are taking it day by day right now.  But with all this crafting and the wonderful comments that everybody have posted, as well as with all that crying on Friday... I'm doing ok right now. 

Today was a wonderful easy going day for me and the kids.  We did what we loved the most... the boys video games, my daughter reading the 2nd book of Hunger games and me crafting.  I think this will help give us the energy for the next week.

Now for my last post for the day I did a cheerful boy's birthday card.  I had a wonderful digi from Dustin Pike that I wanted to use.  Here's my take on his great digi:
I had so much fun creating this card.  I used my quickutz die cut grass and sun.  I could not put my hands on my cloud :(  another die gone missing... oh well... I did one by hand and stamped the sentiment on it.  I used my square nestabilitie for the base of the dog house.  And I used glossy accent to show the drool and the eyes:
Isn't he cute?!?

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Dustin pike - outdoor activity
  2. Going-buggy - card for boy or girl
  3. Crafty sentiments - for a child
  4. Cards for men - texture (the grass would qualify I think)
  5. Send a smile 4 kids challenge - for the boys -my 2nd entry 
  6. Craft your days away - just for children
  7. The pink elephant challenge - hello sunshine (I really went literally this time lol )
That's it for me for today!  Thanks again to all my wonderful followers for your support.  You have no idea how much it means right now to us!!!!  

Bless you all.

Rosebud the Fairy

In continuation with the rest of my post today, I spoiled myself by buying some great digi images from this artist Mayzy art there was so much choice that it was difficult to limit myself lol.  My creation this afternoon is with Rosebud the Fairy.  The sentiment was a freebie that I got from Scribbles by sandy.
To make this card I used My mind's eye paper and I used my wonderful nestabilities for the scallop circle as well as the regular circle.  I colored my little fairy with copics and used Stardust stickles on her wings which you see better here:
Isn't she just a cutie?!?  Don't you just want to run and get her? ;)  

I used this sketch:


I really feel that with each card, I'm improving!!!  Thank you my wonderful followers for being there and seeing this transformation.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Polly craft challenge blog - sketch
  2. Crafty catz weekly challenge - Anything goes
  3. Aud sentiments  - Anything goes
  4. Dutchdare - For a special lady - this card is made for my sister-in-law ;) I plan to give it to her for her 1st mother's day she just had twins ;))) And it's my 2nd entry
Hope you liked what you saw ;0  Keep on commenting.  I just love reading all of you.

Eva the witch

Here's a card just for me ;)  The people who know me know that I love fantasy.  I read tons of books on vampire, witch and other of that kind.  Last week when I purchased images from Stichy Bear Digital.  I had purchased Eva the witch.  She's a digi from Delicious Doodle.  I just fell in love with this digi image.  So today I really wanted to do something with her.  From the start I wanted to do something in monochrome colors.  I just thought it would be the perfect choice for this image.
It's funny because as I was trying to choose my papers from the pack of Me & my big idea I had put my image on top of the paper showing the choices... and guess what... that was the choice I made ;)  Here's the look prior to me cutting it down.
There was a challenge that I wanted to enter all week... but couldn't figure out what to use as recycled material lol this just happened!  It feels like my cards are taking a life of their own... maybe it was the witch acting out!

I'm entering this little one in the following challenges:
  1. Delicious doodles challenge - I used my square nestability die to cut the image, there's the delicious doodle image and I added glitter to the neckline, necklace, earings and cross. So my bingo line is the horizontal middle line.
  2. Paper play challenges - monochrome and ribbon.
  3. Especially made - I recycled the top sheet of my pack.  This is great because I still have all the rest to use... and this was giving me the look that I was looking for ;)  Without sacrificing 3 sheets of paper!  How fantastic.
Back to creating I go.

Lil Spanish Lolita Willow

Today I'm treating myself!!!  I did all the cleaning with the kids yesterday.  And I figured that today I could craft and keep my mind occupied.


I saw that Tickled pink stamps was sponsoring a few challenges.  I had a great digi that I had been wanting to use and I had not yet done anything with it.  This was the perfect opportunity!!!!  Crafting when we can challenges had a wonderful sketch and Card makin mamas had the wonderful color inspiration a gorgeous cake!!!!  That was perfect for spring.  Here's the card:
I had so much fun creating this card!!!!  I got to use some tools that I had not used so far.  The paper is from Paper Reflection and the border was made using My mind's eye paper.  I used a bunch of nestabilities to create the greenery, the flower, the scallop circle, the circle around my digi and the one around the sentiment.  The sentiment is from Hero Art.  I used peeled paint ranger distress inks around the sentiment.  I used my CM tearing tool to create the border and put little Robin's nest dew drops. Finally my beautiful Lil Spanish Lolita Willow digi is colored using copic markers.

This is the sketch:
Our challenge this fortnight is..... 
a SKETCH
And this is the color inspiration:

I'm going to enter this card in the following challenges:
  1. Crafting when we can challenges - Sketch

Cancer

Hello everyone!  I haven't been on since Thursday night... I commented on blogs and tried to think good thoughts... but I was not in a good place.  Yesterday was really hard for me.  I'm trying to stay "tough" so that I can be there for my husband and my kids.  But yesterday I had to come back home (couldn't handle work) and I broke down.  I'm going to lose my Mother-in-law but she's more like a mother to me.  This woman was the one who showed me how to do so many things (sewing, knitting, crochet, cooking,etc).  

As I was looking at my blog read list... the 1st one that was there was from Ikes world.  This great artist had a freebie.... and this freebie was a woman with a cancer ribbon!  OMG I really felt like someone was there to help me... So I thought all day about this card.  I want to send it to my mother-in-law tomorrow. I hope that it reaches her in time.  She's doing a bit better which is great because her kids were able to understand what she was saying... But this terrible disease is taking over her body for sure.  It's just a question of time.  I just hope that she doesn't suffer.
I really love how my card turned out.  I think it's the best CAS card I have done so far!!!!!

I will be sending it to Ike's world.  I hope the artist likes my take on it.  I used the brown ribbon to represent the colon cancer which is what started killing my mother-in-law 3 years ago.  We were very lucky that she's so strong and decided to fight with all she had!!!  We got those extra 3 years.

I'm entering in the following challenges:
  1. Paper pretties blog - CAS card 
  2. Jacksons digital expressions - CAS family matter (I think that one is covered!  family matters very very much!!! )
  3. Dutchdare-cardchallenges - For a special lady
  4. Ribbon carousel challenge - Anything goes with ribbon
I want to thank you all so much for the kind words!!!  They really do help.  Thanks for all my wonderful followers support.  And sorry about the super long post... but it really help putting this into words.

Rain or shine

Tonight we received really bad news... my mother-in-law who has been battling a terminal cancer for over 3 years had another cardio vascular incident this week (the 2nd in 2 months).  This time her speech is affected and after the analysis it was discovered that the cancer progressed to her lungs and liver.  She has a few days to a few weeks maximum to live!!!!  This woman was so full of life and such a fighter.  This is a terrible shock to my wonderful husband.  We are all taking this very hard... the kids (my 4 great kids) can't believe that they will be losing their mamy... 


Somehow I didn't know what to do with myself.... so I created a card that represents what I'm feeling for my in-laws and I really hope that my little angel can help send vibes to my mother-in-law to alleviate her suffering.
I used my beautiful Bugaboo angel no sunshine and paired her off with  a sentiment I got from birdscard.  That sentiment seemed quite fitting right now.  I colored her with copics and my stickles for the wings.  And added glossy 
accent to the bottom for the rain and on the umbrella.

I used this cute sketch:
clip_image002

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Catch the bug blog - the sketch
  2. Digi darlas - anything goes with Bugaboo or digi darlas digis
  3. Robyns fetish challenge blog - pastel colors
  4. Sassy cheryls challenge - April showers
I would like to ask all that are going to read this post to please keep my mother-in-law in your prayers!!!  So that she will not suffer.

Thank you sooo much for your support.  Right now this is really 

helping me cope with this.

Happy birthday to a gardener

wow... not easy making cards for someone else... much easier when they pick from cards that I have already made.  I had a request for a Birthday card for a dad.  And this card needed to be about this person.  The end request was vintage, travel or gardening since he loves to garden and produce tomatoes.  You would be surprised how hard it is to find images that would fit this ;)  But I managed to find some on various vintage sites.  I have put them as reference to this post.  Here's the card:
This turned out to be a really difficult card to make but I'm happy with the result.  I used Tattered Angel mist on the sentiment, copics to color the man and some silver dew drops.


I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  1. Craft your days away - metal
  2. Love to create challenge - anything goes
  3. Make it monday - anything goes
  4. The stamping boutique challenge - photo inspiration (reminded me of gardening so perfect for my card) 
So that's it for tonight and tomorrow I'm having supper with my bestee!!!!  YAY!!!  It will be so much fun.

Thank you

Tonight I created a thank you card that my husband needed for work ;)  At least he's going through me and not Hallmark lol.  I used another image from Spyder corner this one is called Petal and is a freebie this week if you e-mail.
I used my CM border punch to make the border on both side.  I also used stickles on the center of the flower and the collar of the cat and I added Robin's nest dew drops.  The flowers are metal and I think I got them at a dollar store...

I used this great sketch:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Ivy Fairy

Today I was checking out blogs as I was taking my coffee and I came across a blog that was showing a new challenge to me.  In order to complete the challenge and get the prize you needed to use one of their digi images.  When I went to check out the post I found some beautiful digis and on top of this I could get another bunch of images for free with my purchase... how wonderful is that!


Then I discovered another new site that had a wonderful sketch.  They have a great artist that does fabulous images... but I had just purchased some... so I will have to wait to get them next time.  Here's my creation!  My candy for the day.
I put glitter on her wings:
Isn't she just stunning?!?  I must admit that I really adore fairies.  This one is Ivy Fairy from Delicious Doodles.  I purchased her at Stitchy bear stamps, they have lots of wonderful digis.

I used CC design butterfly die cuts as well as a quickutz doily for the lace doily underneath.

What's really funny is that once I did the card and I checked the challenges that I wanted to enter... one of them was from Delicious Doodles!  How funny is that!  Hope they like my take on their digi!

Here's the wonderful sketch and great new challenge place:

Here's the challenges that I'm entering:
  1. Jacksons digital expressions - sketch and pastel colors
  2. One stitch at a time challenge - anything goes (this is the reason why I purchased the digis...)
  3. Robyns fetish challenge - pastel colors
  4. Stampin for the weekend - sparkle and shine (I think my wings definitively qualify ;) )
  5. Critter challenge - Fairy
  6. Our creative corner - butterflies (I have 3 die cuts but I also have the paper underneath the butterflies that has them all over)
  7. crafty friends Challenges - use 2 die cuts (my butterflies and the doily)
  8. Fab n funky - pearls and lace ( I made my lace doily out of paper and added little pearls to the butterflies)
  9. Pile it on challenge - sparkle and shine
  10. Delicious doodles challenge - layers (how funny that I had used one of your image... hope you like! )
So that's it for this Sunday!  Tomorrow I should be ok to do another post... and maybe let you guys know how my cards were liked... 


I really want to thank all my followers!  And thanks for all the great comments!  Just loooove to read you guys!

Cute little girl

This is my last request from a colleague (at least for now... not sure when they see my cards tomorrow if I won't get more ;) ).  Her daughter is doing her 1st communion.  And she wanted something that would represent her daughter more than the cards that she was seeing at Hallmark.  She mentioned that her daughter liked zebra print, pink and black.  Here's what I came up with:
I used again the Cute girl digi from digi Darlas. I had purchased some great charms from Stamp and Create and this is one that I got as a gift (how perfect for this occasion).  I used the stamping technique I had done last weekend to make my zebra pink print.  It's done using Vintage pink distress ink from Ranger.

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
  1. Dutchdare - the sketch - I would have put it in my blog post usually... but it doesn't copy properly :( 
  2. Going-buggy - card for girl 
  3. Craft your days away - metal
So that's it!  I finished my requests... I might still craft at least one but this time it will be only for my own fun!

Birthday card for dad

This is another one of the request I got.  I have a colleague of mine who's expecting a baby boy YAY and her husband's b-day is this week.  She wanted a card that would be personal and that would be from her and her daughter (a cute little blonde girl).  I happened to have Kraftin Kimmie's Caroline stamp which was perfect for this image.  And to top it off the sketch this week was perfect for it too!  How great is that.
I paired Caroline with Cute Girl from Digi Darlas sooo cute!  I thought it would represent well a little 2 year old with an attitude fit for an old soul lol.

I used this sketch:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Kraftin kimmie stamps - Sketch
  2. Crafting when we can challenges - use 2 images
  3. Tsg clear stamps - card for a dad

flashlight

I was thinking of entering in the Dude Time Doodle challenge... and as I was thinking about it I realized that I had the perfect idea for a tag!  And this would also fit with daring card makers challenge.  They have this week a prize from tea house bridge such beautiful embellishments ;)  would be great to win... So this is the tag I came up with:
I used some of our dead batteries for watch ;) as the embellishment. It's a Bugaboo digi called Flashlight and it features Gus!  I really {heart} him.  Just find him a great character to color!!

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Dude time doodles - tag you're it
  2. Divas by design challenge - anything but a card
  3. That craft place blog - anything but a rectangle and a square
  4. The sisterhood of crafters - recycle, reuse or renew (my batteries ;) )

Little hedgy

I have started out my day by making one of the 3 cards that I was asked from colleagues to do.  I showed my work and one of my last card was taken right away.  It's the card that won the top 3 for Especially for you.  Another colleague was eyeing it... so I promised her I would make one for her.  She wanted blue, green and brown colors.  It's for a baptism but she didn't want the typical card for a little boy's baptism... I'm pretty happy with how it came out:
I used my little hedgehog from Penny black, colored him with copics and added glossy accent to the balloon to make it shiny.
I really hope she likes him...

I followed this sketch:

I'm entering it in the following challenges:
  1. Mojo monday - sketch
  2. Send a smile 4 kids - card for a boy
  3. Going-buggy - card for a boy

Little flowers

I made my first flowers with my EK punch.  I bought this punch a few weeks ago when I went to Scrap en Masse with my Bestee ;)  I had wanted to participate in the Craft Meow challenge this month.   And I've been procrastinating... now the time is right because their sketch was perfect for what I wanted to do ;)  Just loooooove when that happens!
I used the leftover paper from the previous card yay for me!  I use my stash lol  I used my little cc design butterfly die.  I'm really happy with the spring look of my card!  When I said that out loud my daughter said (I'm translating here 'cause she speaks French) "that's good mommy because you are never happy with what you do"... I guess I will have to be careful what I say in front of her!  I want her to be a confident individual... not like her mom! 

This is the sketch:

I'm entering this in the following challenge:
  1. creataliciouschallenges - butterflies and flowers
  2. The crafts meow - sketch
  3. Especially made - 3 flowers

So here's my card for this afternoon:
And of course my picture is crooked... :(  But I don't want to take the time to take another one because that will be cutting down craft time!  The beautiful digi image is April Showers from Paper cupcake.  I used my distress markers to color the dress and the umbrella.  I added liquid pearl for the bow and some glossy accent for the raindrop.  The doily is made with a quick cuts die.

I used one of the stamps from Canine Capers 2 from Kraftin Kimmie, a charm I got at Zellers (yes I'm canadian lol) and some papers from previous cards.  The sentiment I had gotten at Omer Deserres on special!  It's perfect for a mother's day.

Farewell Tilda

OMG I have internet... don't know how long that will last... seems I have an intermittent issue and they will send the part for my router... might take a week!  So I have internet on and off and mostly off when I want to go on it.  Unbelievable how we have come to depend on it.  


So while it's on... here's a card I made for a friend and colleague which is leaving the company.  I think it was fitting and represented well how sad I'm feeling to see her go.  I suppose that I sure hope that we keep in touch!
Here's a closer look so you can see the little tear running down her cheek:
I added crystal colored stickle to make it glow like tears do.  I also added little pearls to her shoes.
My inspiration came from this picture:
And these colors:

I just love how the colors are so soft.  That's what inspired me with mine.

I used this sketch to make the card:

I picked this for you bear from Spyders corner

I found a great artist a few days ago.  She has a blog with the type of name that I would not have gone to... I just HATE spiders!  With a passion!!!!  But this Spyder-spyderscorner is not at all what I would expect.  Instead I discovered a tremendously talented artist that gives Freebies away.  One of them is the great little bear that I used in this card.  I don't think he's still free but you can get him at a really low price at her store (find the label on my sidebar).  All kind of great things in that store!
I hope that Lyn likes my take on her creation!  To make this card I used some scraps of papers, some pearls from a Dollar store, a button for the center of the flower, my creative memory circle cutter for the 3 circles in the center.  And this great sketch:


I'm entering this one in the following challenges:

  1. Card pattern - Sketch
  2. Joanna sheen challenge - For someone special
  3. Crazy 4 challenges - Buttons
  4. One stop craft challenge - Three circles
  5. Catch the bug blog  - Photo inspiration
  6. Lily pad - color choices
  7. Delightful sketches - In this case Faux stiching with my Sew Easy ;)))
  8. Robyns fetish challenge blog - Spring image ( I think that this little bear with his flower and the paper make this quite springy )
  9. Card crafters circle - Pastel colors
See you later maybe...  otherwise I will see you next Tuesday since Monday is book club day.
