Live Love Cards

Live Love Cards has a new challenge this month — bottom heavy (leave white space at top). I have been a member of Live Love Cards for quite a few years and not only learn so much from Darlene but also from the other members. I can usually find what I am looking for in the Forum or searching for a particular technique, design or use of a certain product.

I am always challenged by Clean and Simple cards and this was even more challenging to keep the design on the bottom. I was inspired by last week’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches (#339). Here is my card.

The floral papers are from my stash. Sentiment and flower die cuts (colored with Copics) are from Hero Arts.

In addition to Live Love Cards I would like to participate in the following challenges:

Crafting By DesignsAnything Goes
Little Red Wagon – A Rose By Any Other Name (flowers)

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Friendship is Love

I have made several Valentine’s cards using January 2018 Hero Arts Kit. Hero Arts Kits are a great value because so much is included in the kit.

Here is one of the cards I made:

Everything was included in the kit – the stamps, the dies and the sequins.

I would like to participate in Little Red Wagon challenge (Love) and Crafting by Designs (Valentine).

Thanks for stopping by.

Angels Voices

I have been so busy receiving cards and packing boxes for shipments to Children’s Hospitals (SAS4KIDS) for the holidays. I took a break today to make a few cards.

One of our card makers for SAS4KIDS is on the Design Team at Tuesday Throwdown and I have been making an effort to participate in their challenges. Debi is a faithful contributor to SAS4KIDS. I had the pleasure of meeting Debi, Sybilla and Eileen this past summer and I was so blessed and motivated with our visit — they refer to themselves as the “Three Musketeers”. Our card makers are so generous. My goal is to introduce SAS4KIDS to as many hospitals as I can so we can put more smiles on those sweet faces.

So here is my card to be entered into Tuesday Throwdown (use ribbons and lace):

Verve Stamps/dies used, colored a little with copics and on the wings I used Zig Wink of Stella gold marker. The ribbon and lace are from my stash.

In  addition to Tuesday Throwdown I would like to participate in the following challenges:

Crafting by Design – Anything Goes
4 Crafty Chicks – Anything Goes
Craftaholics R Us – Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend.
