All Tied Up On Your Birthday



I'm back, from vacation! Did you all miss my postings?! LOL!  Well, maybe you didn't, but I'm back, anyway! This time, I have a birthday card to show you.  This one is a bit on the sexy smexy side. I made this card for my  friend in Florida, who always appreciates my cards.  So, of course, I had to make a special card just for him.

For this card, I used the image, 50 Shades of Smexy, from The Stamping Chef, colored with Promarkers. I just love Tamara's images - She is so talented.  This image reminds me of the book, Fifty Shades of Grey, and seemed perfect for a male birthday card!  This also was my first attempt at doing a criss cross pocket card. I think it turned out pretty good for my first try!  I loved doing the fancy fold that made the  criss cross pocket! I used a mix of black and white patterned papers from my stash, with black tulle stretched across the front packet and tied in a not at the center. The center insert is my take on the sketches at Inky Impressions and Crafty Creations Challenge, but I have my lace across the bottom and side, rather than the top and side, like at Inky Impressions. (I used sexy  black lace) I used purple gemstones to add some bling, sparkle and shine. The sentiment is punched with circle and scalloped circle punches. I used black scalloped edge ribbon through a punched hole at the top of the insert, to make a ribbon loop for pulling the card insert out of the pocket. (Sorry you cant see the ribbon well, but I had a hard time getting a close up pic of the entire card, so most of the ribbon is cut off in the pic).

Artist With The Blues


Well, well, here I am again - This time, to tell you about a new challenge, starting today, at Open Minded Crafting. How about a challenge about work? Your job, hubby's job, a friend's job - Or anyone else.  We want to see your projects featuring someone at work, or using an office related product on your project - Either will work for this fun challenge.

As always, this is a biweekly challenge, so you have an entire two weeks to create and link up with us, for your chance to win. We always have lots of great prizes you can win and this time is no exception! Join us, this time, for your chance to win a prize from one of these amazingly generous sponsors:




















Now that the details of the challenge are out of the way, let me tell you about my card.

My project uses the (new to me)  image, Crafty Honey Painter, from Scrapper's Delights. I went with a monochromatic color scheme this time, and used lots of spots and dots.  This was such a fun project to do, but I definitely felt a bit dotty after completing it! LOL! I kept it simple, with no embellishments, for that reason. All papers used are from my stash.

This card reminds me so much of my school days, because I always looked forward to going back to school, for the art classes! I guess I always loved to be creative and play with paper! LOL
