Card no. 83 - Yet another Birthday Card this month

Yes, yeeeesss ... another birthday card. Well, I just have so many friends ... tee heee ...
Anyways, this one is for a 5year old. Super sweet and all boy. I just love this cute Whiff of Joy image - absolutely the sweetest thing!
I am still having trouble with bleeding markers - I tried different papers, inks - I think it's time to switch the markers (I guess) - the red ones (that bleed the most) are the ShinHan markers, sooooo ... I guess I am switching to all Copics - I also use ProMarkers, but the tips are just too wide that sometimes I have hard time filling in those tiny lines - and with my hand eczema, I have hard time coloring as it is ... ha! Maybe I just need more practice.

I used Martha Stewart glitter that I had for few years and never used it - I "glittered up" Sammy's hat and the leaves that were die cut with the "new-ish" Whiff of Joy dies. Sooo pretty!

If you can believe that my time as GD is coming to end in couple of weeks - I am sad already.

I am entering the weekly Whiff of Joy Challenge, where Tara challenged us with her fantastic sketch and Secret Crafter Challenge #109 - Sparkle & Shine.

ENJOY!!! I hope you're having a fantastic week. I've been working a bunch, getting some "mule" for Christmas pressies ...LOL!

Card no. 82 - Star Tilda

I've been so patient to use the new Star Tilda from the Christmas Collection, but I could no longer resist. She's a beauty!
I made this card on Sunday, but just today I had the chance to take the pic.
I have friend's birthday coming up, so this was the perfect opportunity to use her. The designer paper is from My Mind's Eye and is just so pretty - love those "untraditional" Christmas colors.

I used the Donalda's Sketch from the Just Magnolia's Challenge this week.
Secret Crafter - Saturday Challenge blog has Sparkle & Shine theme this week.

Whiff of Joy Tutorial - Winter Chandelier

Hello everyone! Oh, my! What a busy week I am having - how about ya'll? We had parent-teacher conferences and I am so very proud of my little Kindergartener. She is doing FANtastic!!!

Anyways, it is once again, my turn to share something with you at the Whiff of Joy Tutorial Blog. I made this beautiful Winter Chandelier. You can see how it's made here.

Once again, very versatile craft project. In fact I have another one hanging in the girls room that I made last year with butterflies. So yummy!

Enjoy your weekend everyone!!!

Card no. 81 - Happy Birthday William!

One of my dearest friend's sons has his birthday today and I was struggling what to make for him. He's ten, so the card could't be even close to girly - so, I went for extra plain with plain paper, no embellishments and not even hint of pink... ha! I did use a tiny bit of Stickles on the tree - couldn't resist.
It was actually really fun to make. I made a window with Spellbinders on the front and attaching another image (the Tree) inside - under that is another paper with personal message. I think I like the look of it (a lot). Will have to make few more.

Well, Just Magnolia is running their Anything Goes challenge (#80), so this will work perfectly.

Card no. 80 - Joy!

Happy Thursday!!! It's been few days .... I am sorry, but I have A TON of stuff going on at the moment and on top of that my eczema (on my fingers) makes it so painful to do anything with my hands... yikes! Sorry TMI.

I just could not resist and had to share another gorgeous Whiff of Joy stamp - Angel delivering the Christmas Tree. I sparkled her wings and ribbon with Stickles. Delicious! I also used one of the new dies (Mistletoe) to add to my flowers - sooo pretty!

Anyways, I can't type very much, so this will be short and sweet - I sparkled the whole card with Glimmer Mist and made "homemade" buttons to match the papers.
I used the Whiff of Joy's Challenge Blog's theme (#91) - Christmas.
