Ayana's Creations - first video and a give-away!

I wish I could just make straight lines straight. Do you sometimes start working your way across a card and oops, the hand seems to have a mind of its own. I was watching a marvelous video at Ayana's Creations and her coloring and creativeness is just astonishing. In the finishing of her card, she made these quick little dashes that make me jealous. Of course I'm in awe of her wonderful coloring, but she's got to be perfect with dashes too?

I'm late, but, oh well...

I love this image. It's so easy to color and have fun with. I used my Copic markers to color and I do love them. I followed Card Patterns' sketch # 81, but the challenge is already over. I really enjoy doing a sketch challenge and I like the way this turned out.

The sketch for Card Patterns # 82 is up and two people have already submitted cards. There are always so many, it's hard to visit each blog, but well worth it.

Enjoy the weekend!

Don't you love it when a card makes itself?

I love the sketch for this week. It seemed that everything I picked up had a place on my card. Go visit Card Patterns and see if you want to try the new sketch... it's a winner! Here's my interpretation

I used a lovely vintage fairy from The Graphic Fairy. The little fairy is darling. I used the Cling stamp Friend Definition for the background. Lay the card onto the stamp to get a good impression. I also like spritzing the stamp with a little water. I love Ranger's little spritzing bottles. The best I've found anywhere!

Then you can't live a crafty life without Ranger Distress Inks... well, I can't. I used Shabby Shutters for the definition and distressed around the image and on the three die-cut circles. I found some hand-made paper just perfect. I used a scrap piece of paper for the cross cut and had laid aside the scallop piece for a later project - this was it!

Ribbon Re-organization

I was downloading some wonderful clip art from The Graphic Fairy and found some wonderful ribbon hangers. I followed the link to Kunterbunt Cottage to check out how she made them and what she did with them.
I love the way my ribbon organizers or re-organizer.... whichever - I think mine were organizers as the bunch of ribbons I have hanging from these have never been organized.
All images are from The Graphic Fairy. I'm sure you'll want to visit too.
