On the go

I’m feeling so much better now ūüôā cold and cough¬†have¬†finally said goodbye so I had the chance to play along in this week’s online challenges.

I recently received my Hero Arts die and stamp combo and I have to use it right away. Love them!

I’m entering this card to CAS(E) this sketch # 34. Also in CAS-UAL Fridays , CFC # 107 Hunger Games.

Here’s my take..

Masculine card

Hi there!

A masculine card for today. The same month’s challenge theme, Here Comes the Boys at The Crafting Caf√© blog.

I used the digi image, Vintage Norton from Delicious Doodles.  I love the image in itself so I did very minimal coloring with my Promarkers.

The background was embossed with chevron with minimal embellishment overall.

There’s still time to play at this month’s challenge at The Crafting Caf√©¬†blog so be sure check them¬†out too.¬†

I’m entering this card to Party Time Tuesday’s challenge, Anything Goes.

I’m back + challenge winner

Hey there! It seems forever since I last blogged. This post should have been live last night but I was feeling so sick again and haven’t had the chance to finish the post. I came back almost a week now from a short break with family. It was short yet so sweet. Had the chance to play again with my little munchkins, KC, Abiel and Aidan.¬†Miss them all already.

Sadly, I got sick the day after my return to Doha.¬†This cough and cold¬†is¬†giving me a hard time.¬†I should be¬†in my normal self hopefully in the next days ūüôā

Anyhow,¬†it’s so good to be back.¬†I’m sharing today Sketch-N-Scrap card sketch # 4. The flower stamp is from Hero Arts which I colored in with Promarkers¬†with a combination of Inktense¬†pencils. I love the vibrant color of both mediums. I then die cut the circle as well as the circle outline border, added a button and the some string. The background is partially embossed and I also embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Sentiment sampler.
