Liam's Surf Board Birthday Card

Hello Crafty Friends!


The current challenge at Aud Sentiments is Summer + A Sentiment.
I decided to use this cute image from Digi Doodle Studios and paired him up with some matching pattern paper.  I kept the card embellishments flat so that it is easier and a bit cheaper to mail.

I put the sentiments on the inside of the card as you can see below.

Little Elijah

Hello Crafty Friends!



I am slowly getting back into card making since my husband passed away.  I know that keeping up with my hobbies helps but I have lost a bit of my mojo.  Coloring up this adorable image from Digi Doodle Studios helped.  The face on this little guy just makes me smile.  He is super cute with the sheep.

Birthday Card

Hello Crafty Friends!


This is my card for the June challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's Pattern Paper  Challenge.
The theme for the challenge is always Anything Goes as long as you use pattern paper.  I have used several layers of pattern paper for this card.  I really enjoy mixing patterns and colors for my cards.

I sent this card to a friend's daughter who celebrated her 18th birthday during the stay at home orders due to the Corona Virus pandemic.  Life has certainly been different for everyone.

As for me, my husband passed away after a 3 year battle with cancer.  Grieving during the pandemic is very isolating.  I haven't been able to see some of my family who lives in other states and when I have been able to see family and friends, we have had to maintain social distancing which means no hugs.

Life Is A Daring Adventure

Hello Crafty Friends!


March is Women's History Month so our Challenge at Aud Sentiments is to make a Feminine project and include a sentiment.  We are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and I have used Lady In Wings for my card.
I found a sketch at Try Stampin' on Tuesday that works great for this project.  I dug out a CTMH map stamp that I have had in my stash for almost 20 years.  I decided to not color it in for this card.
Here is the inside of my card.  I used some elements from the sketch on the inside as well.

Little Elf Finn

Hello Crafty Friends!


I have found it so much easier to make my Christmas cards all year long. This card is my DT card for ABC Christmas challenge.  


The theme this time is E/F/G
You should use one or more of the following: Embossing/Free/Gold
I chose to use gold and embossing for my card. I kept the card simple and free of bulky embellishments so that it will be easier to mail. After coloring with copics I painted the ornament with extreme glitter paint for some extra sparkle

Colon Cancer Awareness Card

Hello Crafty Friends



March is Colon Cancer Awareness month.  My husband was diagnosed almost 3 years ago with Stage 4 colon Cancer.  He did not have any symptoms and he was too young for a colonoscopy. Since then the recommended age for colonoscopies has been lowered to 45.

It's really hard to find awareness ribbon stamps that aren't girly or focused on breast cancer.  I did find this adorable Tiddly Inks image and I plan to send it to a friend who also is battling colon cancer.

This is my DT card for Crafty Hazel Nut's Pattern Paper Challenge.  The theme is always Anything Goes as long as you use pattern  paper.  The prize is this really pretty pack of paper from Bo Bunny.



I can't wait to see what you create.
