Here’s my card:

“Smile”

Smile

I made this card for a lovely lady who lives near my daughter’s preschool.  Every time we walk down from preschool to go home, we see her waving & smiling at us through her window.  So I thought we better make a little something nice for her, as she often times brighten up our weekday afternoon.

My daughter handed it to her yesterday & she absolutely loves it! It’s nice to be tickled pink once in awhile.  I’ve mixed some seafoam ink & pearl paint for the big rose chipboard, which turned out beautifully as it seamlessly molds into the background paper.

Thanks for the lovely sketch & inspirations, & thanks for dropping by.  I enjoyed creating & giving this card.  Have a great day! 🙂

“Create” Tag

Good day! Today I’m sharing a tag for Cardabilities Sketch#121:

It’s a gorgeous sketch & I just couldn’t resist, I had to create with it.  Here’s my tag:

“Create”

"Create" Tag

I used the Alaskan Salmon Chalkboard mist by Tattered Angels for a burst of color, which I love! The extra splatters around is Inchworm Chalkboard mist.

I clipped & stapled some curved red wire on top.

I roughly inked the large cog & built my cluster from there…heart cog, metal lightbulb, red button, & sugar dot heart.

I’m really happy how this turned out & I had heaps of fun creating it.  This tag does represent me, well…my hair is a few inches shorter but I think that’s a tiny difference.  I hope you enjoyed it & thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day! 🙂

60

Hi there, thanks for dropping by my blog.  There’s a light rain today & it’s quite a nice bit of relief from the hot summer days we’ve been having the past days.  Perfect weather for getting crafty, so I created a card for a friend’s 60th birthday.  The big 60…hence why I made this card extra special.  I’m entering it for Cardabilities sketch#115:

I’ve rotated the sketch:
