I seems in the Christmas madness I have forgotten my Friday Sketch Challenge post. Sorry. I forgot all about it. No excuses. At least I got a card made huh. lol Just feel busy busy at the moment and can't wait for the madness to end. The kids will be stoked with their presents so hoping after the initial excitement it will keep them quiet for a little while. To change it up a bit I did this card instead of a Christmas card. Enjoy. Make sure you join in our challenge. It is running for four weeks instead of two.
I did it. I managed to get the needle felted apple finished for Tyler's teacher Miss Spano. He loved it so am hoping she will too. It is the second one I completed. The first one I was unable to give as a gift - at least to a Grade 1 teacher (that is what grade she is teaching next year) as I broke a felting needle in the middle of it. Oops...!!!! So back to the start. But it turned out well. I made the 'box/stand' although am thinking that I should have made it so the apple stays there but any person/child can pick it up and play with it. We will see I guess. If she has it at school who knows but I made an effort and that is the main thing - Right....!!!!???
This year I have found that I have a bucket load of cards to send and give out so in my exhaustion to try and get them all finished I decided to cheat. I took two Mo Manning Little Elf Finn stamp and coloured them up (the same). I photocopied them all on another piece of card, two images at a time. Phew....!!! That in itself was time consuming but I did it and it was quicker that colouring 14 images by hand. The top two cards (see below) used the original coloured images that I photocopied. The following cards use the photocopied images. They turned out really well and if you are in a hurry or have lots of cards to do this is the way to go.
These cards were given to the Kinder girls at Ashley's
occasional care and the other will be given to Lachi's
Morning everyone. It is hump day. Woo hoo. Ahhh I feel exhausted. Just want the silly season to be over. All these activities we are doing this year are very tiring. No matter. I am sure we will get through it in one piece.
Today I have a card made for Mad for Markers using the sketch from The Sweet Stop. I used this gorgeous elf stamp from Digital Pencil. I do love Mo's stamps. This card was made especially for Tyler Prep teacher Miss Spano. He really loves her and he wanted me to make a special card for her. If I have time (yeah right) I might be able to manage a needle felted apple.
Oh man...!!!! Phew....!!!! I don't know about anyone else but this year I have lagged so behind in my Christmas cards and I keep receiving more so have to give out more. It was so much simpler when it was just friends and family - now it is the kinder and school community. Ahhhh...!!! I am not gonna get enough cards made.
This one has to be the one I enjoyed making the most. This fabulous Santa stamp and beach background stamp were purchased from Make it Crafty. You can buy these and a lot more from the store. Santa was printed on white card but background was printed on Kraft card. I wanted Santa to stand out. Enjoy your day.
Good morning. I am so late with this post. So sorry. This fortnight at Friday Sketch Challenge we have a wonderful sketch from the very talented Genevieve. I love this sketch. At it the bomb....!!!! Anyway. I used one of the new images from Spesch that came out on the 8th. If you go to the store you can purchase them now. Enjoy. Make sure you pop by the FSC blog and see the creations by the talented DT.
Christmas is only a little over a month away and I have not yet finished my cards. How aobut all of you....??? I definately do not want to be leaving to the last minute - in fact I normally try and get my cards out the first week of Christmas. Phew - and then I wait for cards to arrive in case I forgot someone - which happens quite often.
As I am not in a very creative mind at the moment I decided to print out multiples of the same image and colour them in different colours. So here they are. Hope you get some inspiration.
