Yes, Well....

There are some weird things happening with the challenge at Ike's World.  I had it as closing on 6th September but then it suddenly closed yesterday with winners announced.  This morning that post has disappeared and the Animals Challenge seems to have gone to closing on 6th September so I am going to try and upload this card that I hadn't got around to uploading.

Warm Wishes

 We have a sweep of bad weather hitting the country at the moment with severe flooding in the same area that is battling Covid Delta cases.  Some people have had to be evacuated from the homes while still trying as best they can to keep the social distancing and masking happening.

Where I am, we have no Covid cases and we have heavy winds but nothing worse so I am quite lucky.

While listening to the wind and following the Paralympics, I made this card:

Best Wishes

 Although this card would fit the challenge at Sheepski Designs, I have already reached the limit of three entries for this challenge.  Usually I only have one or two to enter so this time getting to four and not being able to enter the last one is a surprise.


I would like to enter:

Passion For Markers - Fantasy

I have used a paper and sentiment from a Kaisercraft paper pad.  The image is from Sheepski Design.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I also added some star shaped gems.

Thinking Of You

 I've always like the contrast between a die-cut and contrasting colour so when white as a focus was the theme of the challenge, I knew I wanted to put it on top of a vivid or black background.  I eventually decided on the black.


I would like to enter:

Memory Box - White as a focal point

Have A Berry Great Day

 With the dismal weather we are having at the moment I'm looking forward to some summer.  Since I can't do much about the weather, I figured I could create a summery card with some summer fruit.

Beauty Is An Attitude

I liked the attitude of the bird and when I saw this sentiment in my vellum sentiments envelope I just had to use it.


I would like to enter:

Nevermore Designs - August Image

A Merry Christmas To You

The end of the month is fast approaching so it is probably just as well the weather isn't that great today so I can upload cards for challenges that close in the last few days of the month.


I would like to enter:

Gecko Galz - Monthly Christmas Image
http://geckogalzscrapbooking.blogspot.com/p/gecko-galz-monthly-christmas-challenge.html

I have used a digital paper from Gecko Galz.  The image is from Gecko Galz and the sentiment is hand-stamped (it is out of my Awaiting Crafting box so not sure if it is a rubber stamp or a clear stamp or what the brand is).  I added a couple of wavy lines of Nuvo Drops to mimic tinsel plus two glitter domes over the holes in the die-cut sentiment.


Wonder Is The Desire For Knowledge

I think I am going to get a few posts blogged today as the weather doesn't look like it is going to improve.  I have a few things I need to get done outside but even if it clears a bit, it is still relatively cold outside.


I would like to enter:

Gecko Galz - Monthly Image - August
http://geckogalzscrapbooking.blogspot.com/p/gecko-galz-image-challenge-of-month.html

Life's A Beach

The rain that was predicted for 4pm this afternoon arrived 5 hours early so I had a bit of a mad dash to get the washing in.  Looks like I'll be doing things inside for the rest of the day.  I have photographed a few things that I completed over the past couple of days and will be progressively blogging them this afternoon.

Happy Birthday

I'm not sure what the weather is going to do today.  The sun is out at the moment but there are a lot of clouds about too.  I may get to do some things inside - or I could be inside cardmaking etc.   For now, I'm uploading any cards that I finished off in the past couple of days that hadn't been blogged as yet.

Thinking Of You

I'm having another night where I am having sleep issues so rather than trying to force sleep (which doesn't work) I've got back up and am going to do a few things for a while.  I thought I'd add this card while I was at it.

Happy Birthday

 Today has been a bit of a mixed bag weather wise.  We started off with rain and then it was overcast for some time.  The sun came out so I decided to put some washing out.  The sun disappeared but it then got quite breezy so the washing is almost dry anyway.  In the meantime, I have finished off a few cards today.

Bon Voyage

 I am totally out of track of the days.  I had intended writing this post on Friday evening but only just realised that we are halfway through Saturday.  We have been back in lockdown since August 18th and by now all the days seem the same!

Thank You For....

Here is another image I found today when sorting through my older images that were printed out.  If this lockdown goes on for much longer I am sure that I will be using a few more of my older images plus papers from paper pads.

Thinking of You

Even though (by using an image from Ching-Chou Kuik) I can opt with an Anything Goes theme, I still like the extra challenge of following the set theme for the month.  It is nice to know that I can fall back on the Anything Goes option though.


I would like to enter:

Ching-Chou Kuik - Autumn and/or Autumn Colours

Happy Birthday

I am going through some of the older images in my Awaiting Crafting boxes and came across this sweetie:

Copic Markers Container

 When I am working on some colouring, I like to keep my markers handy in case I have to retouch some of my colouring.  I usually leave them on the desk but they can end up getting in the way so I made a container to put them in.  


I would like to enter:

The Paper Shelter - Anything But A Card
https://thepapershelter.blogspot.com/2021/08/challenge-479-anything-but-card.html

I use a lot of double sided tape and end up with the empty reels.  I stacked some together and then papered over them.



Next was some acrylic paint inside and out.  I applied a serviette over the top using Mod Podge.  The image is from The Paper Shelter and is coloured with copic markers before fussy cutting.  I added some flower stickers and Nuvo Drops to fill in the gaps between the images.

 The sun is out again today although it doesn't look like it will be around all day so it might be back to cardmaking later today.  While I am waiting for my lunch to cook, I thought I'd blog a couple of cards that I have created over the last few days.

 We are on the second day of what so far is a 3 day lockdown (we find out tomorrow if it will be longer).  I expect I'll get a bit of cardmaking done (and maybe some housework as well).  Here is one I created this morning:

For Your Wedding Day

Hey There, Lil Lady

Today is meant to be a wild and windy day all over the country but so far it is only overcast here.  Hopefully it stays that way!  It certainly looks to be a good day for getting things done inside - like cardmaking.
