Hello, Friend

Hello from sunny Tel Aviv! We are here for 10 days visiting my in-laws. Lots of sun & sand for us right now – and a few fleeting minutes on the computer during nap time! I made a few cards before I left so I thought I’d share one of those today.

Hello,friend
This is another one for the Hero Arts sketch challenge – each time I went to make a card for the challenge I thought I might choose a different sketch, but kept going back to the same one – it is definitely the design that feels most natural for me. I did some multi-color inking on the feather and the watercolor strip is something I saved from another project – I never throw anything away (you’d believe me if you saw my office!). I am loving the bright colors with pops of gold. 
Thanks for stopping by today – back soon with some more watercolor cards!

For the love of feathers

So, I was a little late to the game with the feather trend – and I’m still unsure about it sometimes – but, I’m going for it anyway. I do love what people do with feathers on their cards & projects…it is just in the back of my mind I always picture dirty pigeon feathers and my mom yelling “don’t touch that!”. Guess some things just stick, right?! Anyway, I digress – onto today’s card.

This card is for the current Mama Elephant challenge – I loved the pinks & silver so that was my starting point. I think the ethereal look of the Maggie Holmes Flea Maket Project Life card worked perfectly with the inspiration picture & as mentioned above, I finally purchased some feathery goodness. I used this amazing silver Sharpie to add some metallic details. 
Thanks for stopping by & have a great night!

Final 10 Minute Craft Dash of 2013!

Hey! I can’t quite believe it is here, but this is the last 10 Minute Craft Dash of 2013. The 5 months on this DT have flown by – I looove this challenge and really wish it all the success in the future.

 This instalment is very special – we are teaming up with the lovely & talented ladies from CAS-ual Friday to ring in the new year! The theme here at the 10 Minute Craft Dash is anything goes, but feel free to go with their New Year theme if you choose! And the prize is not to be missed!

So, onto today’s creation. First off – a confession – I had already stuffed a little glassine bag full of sequins & other goodies. But, the rest of the card took me exactly 10 minutes! I cut it close on this one – lots of stitching and last minute decisions about random embellishments.

I used some of my favorite things of 2013 on this card – gold labels from a Studio Calico kit, gold chipboard hearts from Maggie Holmes Flea Market, Studio Calico Thataway Feathers & Carta Bella Hello Again papers.

10 Minute Craft Dash #25

CD25

Hello! I’m thrilled to be here today sharing a card for the new 10 Minute Craft Dash! This challenge is just the best – it has really been pushing me creatively and I hope it is doing the same for you! This week’s card took me 8 min 36 seconds. Each challenge I perfect my method a bit more ;-)

This week our sponsor is the fabulous Lawn Fawn – such nice, generous people! Check out this great prize…

I made this card during a manic week full of craft fair prep – I was going for a super simple card that I hoped to turn into a card set. This particular card is super simple, but I simplified it even further for the set – I just made a 1 layer card with the feathers stamped & skipped the twine – I’ll share that one tomorrow! 
Thanks for stopping by & make sure to check out all the details over at Pretty Pink Posh & play along!
