Craftmad Christmas All Year Round Sketch Challenge

I have finished mulching my gardens which I am very pleased about.  Great exercise and now I can sit back an look at my neat and weed free gardens. As I am still on holidays and have a little spare time I thought it is time to catch up on the Craftmad sketch challenges.  I did set myself a goal to do three cards of each Christmas All Year Round Sketches.  This is the June sketch and my take.

This photo shows all of the tag.

After seeing the sketch I found a packet of tags that I have had in my stash for ever.  The tags had nothing to do with Christmas.  This tag had a a key like it was for a 21st but a bit of gold spray, poinsettia flower and some snowflake stamps gave it a whole new look.  I followed the tags theme of golds and browns for all the cards. Something a little different.  Used my snowflake embossing folder for the first time.

This page just had the words so I added holly leaves which to me mean Christmas.  A few gold sticker borders and sentiment, finished with a bow.  Oh and a spritz of gold again.

Showing off the tag.

This tag in no way said Christmas.  Under the Believe embellishment is the word Paris…..yes the holly leaves and dots hide a couple of images of Paris pretty well. I am not totally in love with this card but am thinking it will go to a male at work.  

All of the tag.

Hopefully more cards to show you soon.  I have made a start at catching up on all your amazing work.  Everyone has been so busy and very inspiring. Hope you are having a great weekend.

Happy Birthday - Bee Card

Hi everyone, I am hoping to catch up on some blogs in the next couple of days as I am on holidays for two weeks.  Yay!  I am strangely excited about the 6m load of mulch I have ordered to be delivered this morning.  I think because gardens always look so fresh when the mulch has been put down.  So that is what will be keeping me busy as well as catching up with friends and crafting.

By the way I am well again, luckily did not get the cold as bad as others but was tiring while I had it. We (family) had a scare about three weeks ago as my Mum had a heart attack but she is well on the road to recovery with two new stents.  It has certainly given us all a new look on life especially Mum who is now accepting of offered help.

On to the card.  This was the card I forgot to take a photo of before sending it off to my swap partner. It was for the July Craftmad swap where we had to make two cards using the above Tic-Tac-Toe board.  I chose the Black, Yellow and Blue when I found this bee that I had coloured early.  He did have a green balloon and hat but it's amazing what you can do with Copic pens.  You can't see it in the photo but the background blue is a nice metallic and there is a bit of glitter on the balloon and his hat.

Thanks for dropping on by, I have more to share soon and will pop on by and see what you all have been doing.  I am ready for inspiration. :-)
