This card is a sympathy card, but since I am starting to make Valentines I just keep thinking that it could fit there also. I think that a lot of cards have identity issues when I am looking at them and trying to classify them as one thing in particular or another. Then again that could just be me….
I have been having fun with my nephew instead of paying attention to deadlines and whatnot. So, I may have missed getting this card submitted to the sketch challenge that I used with it. I also didn’t realize it was supposed to be teal and I used just a blue instead. Color challenges are not my strong point.
Every year I try and make a card that is a blue Christmas card that may be a bit more of a personal card. This is the one this year that is that card. It might seem simple, but I see so many little things that feel that they make my heart happy in this simple card that it is my happy card this year.
This card took a little bit of trial and error to get right but I think it was so worth it! Sometimes I have an idea that something can work I just am not exactly sure how to go about making it happen, and this was one of those times. I am glad that I didn’t get frustrated the first time it failed but realized what went wrong and how to fix it.
Oh my, the birthday rush in coming soon! I was printing out my November calendar and realized that I had already flubbed getting some anniversary cards in the mail soon enough. There are ten birthdays this month alone and it only gets crazier next month.
Sometimes I know a general idea of what I want to do for a challenge, and most of the cards I make are inspired by challenges (well it is a whole complex thing but we will just go with that for now), but I don’t know how I am going to pull it off until I find a sketch that works. That was the case with this card. Occasionally I can just put a card together without a sketch, but most of the time I do better with at least the idea of one to work with. read more
