Sketch Saturday and LOTV

I have been incredibly busy these last few weeks. It is silly season at school, meaning that everything is happening at once. Between marking tests, attending school functions and reading my girls' blogs there has been virtually no time for crafting. I was going mad and becoming grumpy, so this morning I decided to set the marking aside and make some cards. I am feeling a lot less grumpy, but a lot more stressed about those tests waiting for me, oh well, some you win, some you lose.
The first card is one I made for a friend who asked me to make a card for a 21st Birthday. It is for a young man who loves playing guitar and loves cats too! Not easy, I used two digi stamps. The rocker boy is from Squigglefly and the cat was a freebie some time ago, I can't remember where I got it.

I used the fab sketch from Sketch Saturday ( ) All cardstock is Bazzil and the Dp is from Kaisercraft. The wooden buttons I found at my local Habby shop. The image was coloured with Copics and the guitar and his shoes were given the Dimentional Glaze treatment.

The next card is for the LOTV challenge. They are asking for your favourite colours ( ) If you had to ask me what my favourite colour is, I would answer - colour! I love any colour, even black, so this was a real challenge. I went through my photo's of cards over the years and discovered that this combination popped up very often. Cardstock is Bazzil, Dp is Melissa Francis. The flowers are Prima and some I found in my Habby shop and coloured with Glimmer Mist. The lace is from my mom's sewing box and the ribbon from my stash. The half pearls I bought from Paola and the image was coloured with my Copics and her wings glitterified with Stickles.

If I do not go and mark those tests right now, I will never finish before tomorrow and then there will be a whole lot of disappointed girls, so better I go mark now.

Have a great week everybody, see you soon.

  3. Pragtige kaartjies vriendin...die een vir die jong man moes nogal 'n "challenge" gewees het, dis nie maklik om kaartjies vir mans te maak nie. Ek het die pragtige pakkie Saterdag gekry. Ek voel so spesiaal dat jy soveel tyd aan 'n geskenk vir my afgestaan het. Dit is so mooi dat ek nie weet hoe jy dit kan weggee nie.
    Baie, baie dankie...jy weet seker dat dit 'n onderwerp van 'n blog gaan wees;-D


  4. You do sound crazy busy. Love your two cards. You were very creative combining the two images on your first. LOVE the second image. She is darling. It's funny, you said you weren't as grumpy after crafting. . .I got to thinking about that and realized that my card making can make me less grumpy or even more grumpy (if cards don't come out right) LOL Hope you got the marking done! Best, Curt
