Time Heals All Wounds

Back with another sympathy card. Man these are tough! I try to make them somber but happy at the same time. Truly a challenge!

This card is an entry for:

10 Minute Craft Dash – Challenge #7

The Deconstructed Sketch #78

CAS-UAL Fridays: CFC79 Winter Blues

10 Minute Craft Dash

So the number one reason I love making cards (other than keeping my creative sanity) is that they are quick & fun!

Of course I had to play along with Paulina’s 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge:

 

I just love those colors! I pulled out some fun & fabulous patterned papers & chipboard pieces to correspond with this card:

 

I love the “map” texture along with the “retro” feel of the car. And of course that fun font sentiment stamp from WPlus9’s A Pocketful. Luckily all the fun chipboard pieces & patterned papers made this card happen in under 10 minutes! I’m a pretty fast crafter when my mojo is right, and luckily thanks getting up early and a yummy breakfast I was ready to rock!

I hope you find at least 10 minutes in your day to make something pretty!

Happy Friday all! Man I’m so glad this week is almost over…been a long one for sure.

Here is the latest Runway Inspired Challenge:

I love the bright colors and geometric pattern. I decided to try some “shadow-boxing” with some circle cut outs to contrast the straight lines. Here is my take:

I used Wplus9’s Country Charm stamps with rich Stampin’ Up inks to create the line design on the background. Super easy and fun technique! Have a great weekend!

 

Birthday Boy Blue

My sweet friend’s son is having his 3rd Birthday Party this weekend, and I’m in shock it’s been 3 years. I remember holding him when he was a fresh little nugget in the hospital. How time flies! Happy 3rd Birthday Jaxen!

This is also my entry for Just Us Girls’ latest challenge:

This card was super simple to make. Some patterned paper cut with a scallop edge, some fun stickers from Martha Stewart & Thickers, and of course a stampy little sentiment. Happy sails to you!
