Christmas in April…

I don’t often make Christmas Cards, but when I do, they happen at random times of the year, haha.

Anyway, this is my entry for the ABC Christmas Challenge–I is for Informal.



Birthday Card

I am entering this card into 2 challenges this week. The first is Seize the Birthday–Anything Goes.

The second is As You Like It Challenge–Favorite Colour (and Why). My favorite color is orange because it’s kind of the non-conformist color. I mean, it doesn’t rhyme with anything (?) and I think a lot of people are afraid to wear orange because it’s a very bold color. But see, orange can play nicely wit everyone :-).

Mojo Monday #491


Hello! This is my single attempt at this week’s Mojo Monday Challenge. I liked this sketch a lot, but when I sat down to make something my stash let me down. I just couldn’t find any inspiration, but that’s okay. It happens.

I’m really happy with how this one turned out, though I wish I’d thought about that green “stripe” before I put it down. It’s part of a 6×6″ sheet of, essentially, washi, so when I took it off the backing, it was very transparent, as you can see. I like it, but I think it looked just a little bit better when it was opaque.

Freshly Made Sketches #281

I’ve made a couple of cards inspired by this sketch. Here’s the first:


This is an oversized card, measuring 8.75 x 11.25. I hadn’t planned to make a large card, but the hot air balloon required it :-).

Ooh…I need to go back and squish down the washi tape–it’s a little wrinkled. Sorry! I didn’t notice until I put up this picture. There! Much better!
