Happy Birthday/ MOJO417/CAS Sketches and Colours#144

I actually had a chance to play today.  It seems like my week got away from me doing this and that. One of the BIG this and that's, was cleaning out and reorganizing my Craft space, AGAIN! That seems to be a never ending work in progress.

I created a Birthday card for a dear older friend in Scottsdale which needs to be sent by Monday before I go out of town. I gleaned my creative inspiration from MOJO #417 and CAS Colours and Sketches#144 this weekend.  She loves blue and this card had such a simple layout that I knew I could take a little bit of my afternoon to make her one. I'm a little disappointed with the look of the sentiment. I thought I had one that would fit into the curved banner and didn't. :0(

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and can do something CRAFTY! Thanks for stopping by.

Child's Thanksgiving Card/MOJO#416

Today I am posting a sample of a card that I will be sending to 8 of my 11 grandchildren. I saw the MOJO#416 sketch and knew it would be perfect for the little squirrel I would be using almost immediately. I just love when that happens!

That little guy was cut by my Cricut Explore. He was a liitle bit of work only because he is layered, but I love they way he came out. I "blushed " his cheeks with chalk, filled his eyes and nose with Crystal Effects and used lots of SU dimensionals to have him pop off the middle circle. I used the retired Bigz die, Autumn Accents, for the acorn. I hope my GC enjoy getting this card with a little Thanksgiving cash tucked in.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a wonderful and CRAFTY Friday!

Friends/Share the Joy challenge


Today's card is using the sketch and Tic,Tac,Toe challenge over at Taylored Expressions. This proved to be a little more of a challenge for me then I anticipated, but I stuck to it.  I'm fairly happy with results.  The heavy twine is still in question and I couldn't get a decent picture of the whole card.  It looks blurry and I'm not sure why. I did adjust the levels, took several shots, but I guess  I didn't do enough. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you stop by Share the Joy Blog to get some great inspiration.

Make it a great Tuesday and go do something CRAFTY!
