Sending A Cheery Hello

 I jusr found out that the recipient of my swap card for our little New Zealand swap group has received my card.  I just missed her letting me know it had arrived a few days ago and hadn't had a chance to check again since.

This month we were creating a Mini Miura Card following a tutorial by Sam Calcott.


I have used paper from a paper pad by Uniti along with some silver glitter cardstock which I think may also be from Uniti.  The butterflies were from an ephemera pack and I was pleasantly surprised at how well they matched as I think they may have been from a different brand.  The sentiment is from My PaperCrafting World.

Trick or Treat

 I am honoured to be a Guest Designer for the Sunday Songs and Rhymes Challenge.  This month featured a poem.  My inspiration came from the following lines:

The month is Amber,
Gold and Brown.
Blue ghosts of smoke
Float through the town.

To see the whole rhyme, visit the challenge here.


I have used an image from the sponsor Polkadoodles called Winnie's Trick or Treat Halloween Witch.  This image comes in both Black and White and Coloured.  I chose to work with the Black and White Version.

I also used a paper from a paper pad.  The ghosts are from a confetti pack.  I attached some to the front frame and some to the background.  Colouring is with copic markers.

I followed a tutorial for a Pop Up Frame Card by Sam Calcott.  Her one was white on white but I'm quite pleased with the result of adding colour.

Seasons Greetings

Inspired  by some Trimgym papers that I still had in my Awaiting Crafting box, I decided to create a monochromatic blue card

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch
http://sweetsketchwednesday2.blogspot.com/2022/09/september-at-sweet-sketch-wednesday-2.html

I have used three digital papers from Trimgym.  The image is from Crafty Sentiments and the sentiment is typed on the computer.  I used a dark blue cardstock from DCWV for the matting.

I followed this sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday:  I slightly modified the sketch - the bottom layers are the same but the top layer (snowflake and sentiment) is flipped.

Some Are Born To Sweet Delight

I think this will be my last post for today.  I have some other things I need to do after dinner. It has been a fairly productive day so far today and hopefully I will get everything else that I need to do completed.
