Grandma's Garden

Hello Everyone! I am back from another Hiatus.
 I have been creating! but not cards as much (new blog to be linked in the future it's sort of a secret right now shhh!)

 Recently I have joined into Alyce (kit and clowders) Skin and hair class so looking forward to sharing some projects once I am further into the class.

 This card is a month old but I wanted to share it because my grandmother is awesome (I know everyone says that about their grandmother but I have not only a kind considerate, funny grandmother but she has been through a lot in life and has always made family her number one priority)

 copics: Skin: E00, E00, E01, E11 and white gel pen for the freckles
Hair: E40, E41, E42, E43
Dress: sorry forgot to write down the colours but I think it was RV02, RV11, RV14 and RV19
Yellow part: Y21, Y15, Y18
Supplies: Button- Walmart, Yellow dots- melted pony beads =), Kraft and white cardstock- Michaels brand
PP: My Minds Eye Kate and Co- Cambridge Court
Stamps: Kraftin Kimmies- Peony, and My Favorite Things- Grandparents (sentiment)

I really liked how this card turned out but you may see the image again soon in the future (repeating colouring her hair after I am done with the class)

Hope you like big hugs to everyone!


PS: when my secret project blog goes up I may have a giveaway stay tuned for more!

First card of 2014!

Hello Everyone and Happy 2014!!!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful new year.... Well it's time to get my butt back into gear and starting off 2014 I have a fun card to share with you all!

My cousin is 17 and time again to celebrate her birthday! This year was a little tougher than last year to design a card for her. She is not your typical 17 year old.... She is a tomboy at heart perfering basketball and rugby too things such as flowers, crafting and girly stuff. But that being said she does like style and what girl doesn't love music!

I love this image from Some odd girl, she is so fun and I see a cute christmas card in the future about rocking around the christmas tree for next christmas! (I have to start making christmas cards early this year)

I paired her up with the hipster basic grey paper and I think it has a retro yet still modern feel to it!
added a few rhinstone stars to complete the scene and then added paint splatters to grunge it up slightly.

So you may ask what my goals are for 2014: I am starting a art journal!!! I feel like I have loads of stamps or ideas that I like for me but not necessarily work for a card. Therefore the art journal is going to be a little project for 2014. My goal is to do a page a month (hopefully going to get more than one page done a month but I wanted to set a little goal first) so look out for my art journal pages in the future!

without further ado (aka: I have rambled enough) here is my first card of 2014
