Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
http://craftysentiments.blogspot.com/2021/08/anything-goes-challenge.html

I have used several digital papers from Trimgym in the layers.  The image is from Crafty Sentiments and the sentiment is from Trimgym.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I also added a 3D butterfly sticker from a set that I purchased earlier today - saw them and couldn't resist!  I must have known something as the colour was a perfect match to the paper that I used for this card.


What's The Scoop?

 I decided this afternoon to make a couple of cards for the challenge at CRAFT.  I had an idea for this one but I ended up creating a second card which I will blog shortly.

I have used a PDF from The Cutting Cafe for the parts of the ice-cream.

The digital papers used throughout are all from Trimgym.  I jazzed up the ice-cream scoop with some Kindy Glitz.  The sentiment is also from The Cutting Cafe.  I covered the joins in the ice-cream cone with some white Peelcraft Stickers.

Sweet Summer Wishes

I am a bit late for the reveal of the July cards at The Card Chain Challenge.   There doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day at the moment! 

This month my card went to Minnesota in USA.



These are the prompts that we were given




I used the following prompts - sketch, colours, summer, fancy fold

I created by own fancy fold inspired by the sketch - took a couple of attempts to get it to work!

The digital paper that I used comes from Imagine That Digis.  The image is from Beccy's Place and the sentiment is from Doodle Pantry.  Colouring is with copic markers.

I have been advised by the person I sent the card to that she has received it.  I still haven't received either the June card or the July card.  Looks like there are still issues with inward mail but some improvement in outward mail.

For A Friend

I had this image cut out ready to colour about a week ago and hadn't got any further.  I wasn't feeling like doing much today so was a great day for colouring and finishing cards.

I have used a digital paper from Lozzy for the background as well as some smaller pieces of a digital paper from Imagine That! Digis.  Colouring is with copic markers.

I followed this sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday:


I switched out the circle element with a sentiment.

It's Your Day

 Instead of taking multiple pictures of this card fold, I have taken an aerial view and then a close up of one of the mini easels:
