Daily Challenge on PaperCrafts Website


Awhile ago...I started a daily challenge on PC website. Each day someone new was supposed to post a challenge. It went pretty well for awhile but then kind of went away. There had been some interest in restarting I issued a challenge for Today/Tomorrow....Using the Masking Technique. This is definitely something I am not great at.....That is why it is a challenge. LOL

Here is what I came up with. Origianlly I came up with a fantastic idea of the birds all stacked up on top of each other and having the sentiment Friendship Grows. But I realized soon enough....I wasn't that talented. Therefore, I thought of how excited our cats get when the birds come to our bird feeders and how they are in kitty heaven. So that is how I came up with this idea. I love using Tiny who I call Fat Cat.

As you can see, I have the black along the edges...I noticed I had some smudges so I was trying to hide that. Then I noticed I had a lot more smudges in other places. I am hoping noone notices and thinks it is part of the design. :)

Happy Birday!!!


I decided to make and post another card....I guess I am feeling creative tonight. It is finally starting to cool off...we are going to have a storm hit. I used some of my scraps of the SEI paper that I had....and just kept layering. It is 4.25 x 4.25. Wasn't sure what to do with it. And I saw on PaperCrafts Website a post by pjpants about doing a paper piercing swap so I tried it and used my SU bird set (first time using it.) and it is a bit busy....but I like it.

Thanks for looking.


Birthday Card


I bought PaperCrafts 101 is 14.99 but definitely worth it. I loved all the cards and actually decided to try and to make one.

The one I did is on page 81 called Eat Cake. My layout is pretty similar but I used flower instead of a rub on wording (eat cake) in the middle. Plus I placed a sentiment down in the corner...which they didn't have. I was originally going to put a puffy cake sticker in the middle...however, it was too big and the wrong colors.

I won't say who this card is for....they might be reading. :) Probably not!!! I will just say....somehow my DH his mom & his dad's birthday's are all a couple of days apart. And I doubt it is for dh or his dad.

Also, I didn't have a piece of chipboard so I made my own version of the circle cutout using my CB.

Thanks for looking.

PS...the designer of the card in the mag is Angelia Wigginton

Just Because...

I made these two cards this evening...Just Because!!! I received this set, I think it is called Furnished with Love from a friend. We swapped a bunch of stamps. I thought it looked like a fun set and would be easy to color with the copics.
Poor Sheldon, I think I was up and down about 20 times during the movie we were watching. First I had to clean up a previous mess that was driving me crazy. Then I started working on these. I pulled out the CB and everything...but decided not to use it. Overall I kept them pretty simple.
Thanks for looking!!!!
