It feels like forever since I have participated in a Makeesha Challenge and it was just so nice to actually be able to sit down and create something (and within the deadline too :) ). So the first challenge for the year was a sketch challenge. Here's the sketch we had to use...
When I first saw the sketch I knew instantly what I wanted to do with it. A friend gave birth to a beautiful (not to mention big - 10 pound 6 OUCH! Not looking forward to that side of being pregnant) baby boy recently so I decided I'd use the skecth to make this adorable card to say congrats using the Christmas present I bought myself - Bundle of Joy stamp set.
I'm not overly impressed with my photographing skills today but love how the card turned out.
Stamp Set: Bundle of Joy
Cardstock: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Watercolour Paper and Certainly Celery Prints DSP
Ink: Black Stazon, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky
Accessories: Dimensionals, Certainly Celery Ribbon, Certainly Celery Brads, 1 3/8" and 1 1/2" circle punches
I had so much fun with the layout that I wanted to make another card using it. So today I sat down and made the following card using some colours I don't always grab for. Again my photographing skills suck today but here's the other card I made.
Stamp Sets: Canvas BG, Everday Flexible Phrases, Bud Basics
Cardstock: Mellow Moss, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla
Ink: Mellow Moss, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Dimensionals, Hemp Twine, Mellow Moss Grosgrain ribbon, Double Rectangle Punch, I 3/8" and 1 1/2" circle punches
I hope you liked looking at the cards as much as I enjoyed making them. It was a nice break from laying on the lounge. I'm so over being unwell!
