You Go Gull – MFTWSC339

Well, it feels like forever since I’ve done this. Let’s see if I can remember how to do it! Thank goodness for my crafty friends. Our monthly get-togethers have kept me crafting at least once a month even though moving and setting up my new craft room has taken months longer that I wanted. But it’s getting closer! One more big piece of furniture to move, but it’s a beast!

I’m playing along with the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge with this card. I may not have a fully assembled craft room, but I couldn’t resist trying out the Distress Oxide inks for the first time when I was creating my cloud background. First impression: So easy to work with! FOr the post the seagull is standing on, I masked the gull and the edges and stamped the post with the Wood Plank background stamp with Hot Fudge hybrid ink then finished cloring it in with Copic markers.

You’re Jawsome – CTD441

I made progress on my craft room today! To the point that it hurts to type this. It’ll be worth it in the end! Anyway, I did have a chance to craft on Saturday, so I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown. And now, I’m going to go take some ibuprofen and go to bed…

You Have a Heart of Gold – MFTWSC330

I actually only made two cards last weekend.

But for my second card, I used the current sketch from the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

I Heard You Were Dragon – CTD434

You guys! It’s been over a month, but I finally got crafty again!!! Thanks goodness for good friends and regularly scheduled Crafty Saturdays! I can’t remember when I went this long without crafting. I moved at the beginning of January. And I had to clear out my storage unit. So my life for the last 2-1/2 months has consisted of moving boxes. So. Many. Boxes. Right now, I have a temporary craft room set up in my living room. My craft room is currently filled with boxes I need to sort through after emptying my storage unit. Anyway, Crafty Saturday gave me an excuse to take a break from boxes, pack up my crafty things, and spend the day crafting with friends. I took the opportunity to play along with the Color Throwdown. I used gold ink to color this cute little dragon’s horn, wings, claws, and belly. I used copic markers for the rest of him.

A Little Kindness Goes a Long Way – MFTWSC316

Hey look at this! I actually used stamps and ink tonight! I’m playing along with the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I love this Wavy Coloring Book background and I haven’t even colored it yet! I cut a circle mask from scrap paper and covered the panel with it then stamped the background. Then I trmmed the panel, popped with foam adhesive and added the sentiment on the fishtail banner. I finished the card off with some clear sequins.



Stamps: Kind Words, Wavy Coloring Book BG (MFT)
Paper: Insulation Pink, Grout Gray, Cement Gray (MFT)

Hugs – CTD426

So here’s a pretty good clue that I’m running short on time – I make a card with no stamping involved. But, when it’s 9:30 on Sunday and tomorrow is a work-day, you do what you have to. 😉 So this is my (non-stamped) card playing along with the Color Throwdown.
