Card Challenge #12 - Thinking of You

Do you eve struggle with the way something looks? I was working on this card last night and I had a vision in my mind of what it should look like and it looked beautiful....but it just wasn't working on paper. This is what I finally came up with (my 10 year old son heard me grumbling to myself and took a look and said: "I don't know what you are looking at Mom but I think it looks terrific" <3 I'm also working on my photography skills - I believe that a good picture makes all the difference in the world. This card was made using Spectrum Noir markers and the Stamp is from Sassy Cheryl's Digi Stamps. The Sketch was taken from Sketch Saturday!

I would like to enter it into the following challenges:

I also want to share some tags that I made up yesterday. 

Please feel free to "like" me on Facebook. I'm also working on getting lots of items into my Etsy Store

Card Challenge #11 - gift card holder

I'm always looking for different things to add to my store. I currently have one on Facebook ( and I'm working on getting some onto Etsy too. Today I came up with this cute little gift card holder. They can be made in a almost endless variety of colors and with almost as many embellishment options, the possibilities will be endless with these.

I'm entering this into the challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges - anything but a card!

Card Challenge #11 - Hello.....

Lately it seems as though I have been spending a lot of time looking at cards and trying to get idea to make my cards a little more fancy and "busy". But no matter how hard I try my cards always seems to end up simple and sweet. When I come across a card challenge that is to "bring on the bling" I have a difficult time using a lot of bling because my cards seem simple. But I guess if that is your style then it is something that is difficult to change. Here is todays card creation.....

This card was done using a digi stamp from Saturated Canary and the markers are Spectrum Noir. I would like to enter it into the following challenges:
