As you might know, our spring was a bit hectic this year.  Things are finally calming down and looking up, and I am getting back to my craft corner here and there as we get back to normalcy.  Today I am highlighting a few thank you cards that I created back in February with my primitive drawing skills and some watercolor.  Little did I know then how quickly these cards would be put to use.  If you are reading this blog post, chances are you helped us out in one way or another and for that we are eternally grateful!  I hope that I did not miss thanking anyone, but there were a few days when I didn’t know which end was up.  We are blessed to have such wonderful family and friends!  THANK YOU!

Word Card Making Day – 2014

Wow, where does the time go? They say that yesterday was the last warm day and now we are heading into fall temperatures, which is fine by me. I was lucky enough to travel on a few trips which kept me busy these summer months, and I have been learning some new skills to add to my crafty repertoire. I have always wanted to learn to draw and watercolor, and through many websites, online classes, and library books I have been practicing the basics. This led to a fascination of colored pencil drawings which can be very detailed and gorgeous.

Of course I have been making cards and have spent many productive hours in my craft corner. Since today is the eve of World Card Making Day, I will share some of my card creations. Next week I will share some watercolor and colored pencil projects I have been working on.

The first two are self-explanatory in that they were made with washi tape, swirl stamps, and a sentiment.  Clean and simple.  The Missing You Card stamp is by Unity.  I colored it in with distress markers and punched with a Fiskars corner punch.  I made a big batch of the Thank You cards for a friend’s husband, and the sentiment was punched with a Martha Stewart Punch.  I like the strong, masculine tone of this card.  Happy World Card Making Day tomorrow!

Welcome to my blog!  I am thrilled to celebrate World Card Making Day by participating in OWH’s bloghop!  My card is based on Sketch 96.  I like how the tree branch of my card mimics the third strip to the right.

The owl on this thank you card was made with the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge, and the sentiment is from Scrappy Mom’s “Owl Occasions.”   Papers are from my scrap box and ended up going together nicely, I think.  Thanks for stopping by!
