it's Card time.....

Having a packed day yesterday with classes (I ended up having two classes so I can acommodate all the people that were interested in my 6 scrapbook pages for $6 class) and family things, I ended up just doing cards last night. I still wanted to play in my scrap space but being to tired to think, I opted to make cards. It was a great way to relax and keep my hands busy while I watch the latest episode of Heroes online.

Anyways here's what I was able to accomplish......I've been running low on bday cards so I thought I'd make some more for my stash.

Happy birthday with crepe ribbon

this was inspired by the sketch at Card positioning system blog. I've been enjoying blog challenges lately, especially when it comes to cards. Everybody knows I need to improve on my cardmaking.


I got the chipboard frame from Making Memories and so was the title sticker.


At first, I wasn't sure about the color combo and maybe they still don't flow together for some but for me, I think it's alright. I really like the crepe ribbons from Jenni Bowlin. Fun stuff!!!

then over at Cuttlebug challenge blog they had a sketch for there inspiration/challenge this week and here's my take on it....

Happy birthday with butterfly

I feel so happy everytime I finish a card for this challenge cause it feels good that I'm dusting off my cuttlebug templates and putting them to good use. *wink*


This card was all about experimenting for me, from the way I was going to interpret the sketch, to the color to even the butterfly. I stamped the butterfly then colored it in with colored pencil then thought it didn't have enough life to it so I sprayed it with some glimmer mist (sadly you don't see the cool shimmer it gives) then highlighted the image more with brown fine point marker.

So there you have it, fun stuff over all.

Till next time,
Grace
