September Card Chain Challenge

Hello everyone! I'm back!
I am ready to get back to crafting, and the Card Chain Challenge seemed like the perfect incentive to sit down and actually try something new.

As soon as I saw one of the many prompts for the September challenge, Zentangle, I was reminded of the booklet that I had purchased a couple of years ago, but had not done anything with, until now.
I found it very relaxing to do and look forward to doing more.

Do check out all of the other cards that were exchanged last month at the Card Chain Challenge, and when you are there, why not sign up for next month and join in the fun!

Thanks for visiting, and I hope to be back with more creations soon!

Spring flowers for the April Card Chain Challenge

Hello everyone! It's the second of the month, which means it's time for another CCC reveal.

I'm still very busy working on my own personal growth, but the Card Chain Challenge is a good incentive to create at least one card a month, even if I'm usually late in sending it out.

Anyway, this past month my card went to Tina in Slovenia.

I used a NBUS stamp set that I had won during a new Uniko release (Background Blocks Layered Modern Floral). The stamp comes with the flower layer, the leave layer and a few small elements. After stamping, I used a white pencil to add a little detail to the flower petals. The sentiment is from an older Altenew set.

I'm also linking up my card at:

March Card Chain Challenge Reveal

Hello everyone! It's the second of the month, which means it's time to show you the card that I sent out for the March Card Chain Challenge.

Life has been busy this past month with work and personal stuff, so I did not have a lot of time to spend in my craftroom. That's why I pulled out an old card from my stash to send to Pia in Norway. It was perfect for this month's themes of friendship and farm. Besides, it was perfect for St. Patrick's Day.

Some of you may have seen this card before on my blog. It was a super quick and CAS card that I created using a digital image by Faith Skrdla of From the Heart Stamps, who sadly passed away much too soon a few years ago. This card reminds me of how her images always make me smile, so I intend to create some more cards using the images that I own.

Do check out the other cards that were exchanged worldwide this month. If you want to join the fun, you have until April, 6th to link up for the April Card Chain exchange. You can play as often as you like, since you need to link up for each month that you wish to play.
