I have no idea how many Friday's till Christmas but I am sure that someone will post it on Facebook to remind me everyday that its closer then it feels it is! But from August till November its pretty much birthday after birthday after birthday - and normally I'm in a mad rush from December to get all my Christmas cards, tags and decorations done but this year I've started early (earlier than I normally would) and it heaps that there are lots of challenges to provide me with incentive to get them done. This card is for Unitys (show & tell) weekly challenge. Details can be found here. I used their Always Pick Naughty Stamp along with My Little Paper World Rectangle nesting dies and some old Christmas paper I've had lying around. Copics: T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, E1, R20, YR23, R46, R29.
Have you made all your Christmas cards/tags this year? or ... are you like me and leave it to the last minute?
Surprise! Happy Birthday Els Blog Hop It's Els van de Burgt's birthday and what better way to celebrate then to celebrate with a surprise Birthday Blog Hop with the Elizabeth Crafts Design Team! Happy Birthday Els! Here is my birthday card for you: This card was created using Elizabeth Craft Designs Floral Background stamp. I don't use my background stamps enough and I love when I get an opportunity to colour and use my copics. So for my card today I decided to create a spotlight card. Colouring in only a section of the card and leaving the rest as is - simply stamped in grey ink. After the card front was stamped I restamped the image using black ink on a copic friendly card that I had die-cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs - Stitched Fishtails. This section was coloured in. Before I assembled my card together I added twine to the top of my fish tail and elevated it using foam tape. I also die-cut my card front using Elizabeth Craft Designs - Dashing Rectangles die and adhered …
So personal goals aside (loose weight, drink less sugary drinks, etc) I've made a few creative goals that I'd like to complete in the year 2017. I plan on keeping the 'DO NOT BUY MORE PAPER!' rule I started late last year, and I've been pretty good with sticking to it. I've listed below what I'd like to achieve. Get on a Design Team. Create a Video and get a YouTube account.Practice more Watercolour (a lot)Spruce up the blog design...Keep craft room clean (I've failed this one every year...)This month I applied for 3 Design Team opportunities. I haven't heard back from any but will keep trying. I miss that little creative push being on a design team gives and I could do with a little bit of a challenge creatively. Do you have any creative goals to achieve 2017? Here are two more cards I created using a Itty Bitty Unity Stamp.
Thanks for stopping by. Here's to a inspirational 2017 and hopefully a cleaner craft room!
