Here’s a quick card I made for the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge just before the challenge deadline.  I chose the chicken image and sentiment so that the card fits into the Chicks Stick Together challenge for’s Hope You Can Cling To.  The chicken is a digital image that I purchased online, but I created the sentiment myself using Microsoft Word. I doodled some dots around the edges of both circles (although it’s hard to see the pale yellow dots around the chicken).  The patterned papers are some old, old scrapbooking papers from my stash.  The red paper has a faint splatter print, and the yellow paper has a subtle plaid print.


Thanks for stopping by today!  🙂

Cards in Envy - Pumpkin Patch

Comments Off on Cards in Envy – Pumpkin Patch
Nov 032014

Hi there! It’s Cards in Envy challenge introduction day! For the next two weeks we have a theme challenge of Pumpkin Patch.  Show us your A2 sized cards featuring at least one pumpkin.  Remember to keep your cards flat enough to fit in an envelope and be mailed at the first class postage rate.

Since Halloween has passed, I didn’t want to use a jack-o-lantern image.  I chose this cute Rhubarb the teddy bear digital image for my card and colored it with Copic markers.  I’ve combined a couple other challenges along with the Pumpkin Patch challenge.  The layout is this past week’s sketch challenge at, and the teddy bear lets the card qualify for the Warm Fuzzies Hope You Can Cling To challenge.
