I was so busy blog hopping last night, that i left it too late to share these two cards with you!!!

This first one is for Beate Johns weekend sketch callenge #28. I really enjoy trying my hand at these challenges and also looking at all the other cards made by all you talented girls out there! :) I have been reading some of my favourite blogs, only to discover that a few of you have had snow already and are out having fun!!

I was inspired to create a 'snowy' card and this is what i came up with!

The card is a 5 x7 covered with Basic Grey 'Blitzen' papers. The circular focal was made with Donna Downey chipboard from a QVC kit, i painted the outside circle with white acrylic paint and then sprinkled with glitter. The inner circle was covered with more BG paper to which i added a ghost snowflake from Heidi Swapp, also painted with white acrylic and then a snowflake brad to finish. The sentiment is a HOTP acrylic, stamped with Versamark and embossed with white PSX powder.
other supplies used :- DecoArt glamour dust, Ranger paint, ribbon and mini brads from stash.

This card is for the current challenge over at Sketch This Cards. I felt that i wanted to make a masculine card with this sketch, i can't think why really as men are notoriously difficult to make a card for!! but my son Darren has a Birthday early January, so i decided to go with this idea.

For this one i used a 148mm square card covered with papers from the American Crafts Elegant collection.The chipboard flourish is Maya Road and i used some paper from Craftwork Cards to cover it (this was an absolute b.... to cover but worth it all the same!!) I sanded all the edges with my Basic Grey precision file set. The chipboard letter D was inked with Stazon( it was originally green!)

other supplies used :- American Crafts ribbon, Stamps Away and HOTP acrylic for the sentiment and journaling block, chipboard D and yellow card from stash.


  1. Love the masculine colors, Carol! You are right, boy cards are hard for me too. But you did awesome on this!!

  2. Great cards! You did an awesome job on your "masculine" card using those AC papers!

  3. I love what you did with Beate's sketch! What a beautiful snowflake. TFS!


Thanks for your visit today :) I appreciate your time and your comments and i'd love to come over and visit you too! ;-D
