I haven't been crafting or blogging lately. In my last post, I mentioned my son being sick, he needed to be hospitalized. So life has been pretty busy, shuttling between home and hospital, and sleepless nights and house chores....plus some special home cooking, I always cook for my family. He is doing fine now, and will be home tomorrow.
While being inactive on my blog, a lot has happened, I was chosen as chic of the week at JUGS, chosen as Connoisseur at Colour me , Top pick at Catchy Challenges ... Thank you all for inspiring me, I am truly inspired by all you wonderful crafters.
Hubby sent me home, asking me to relax, but I cannot nap during daytime. Card making is my stress buster. Made these 2 quick cards.
The first one is for Taheerah's Cure for the Monday blues. I never thought that I would have time to execute this card, but here it is, a very simple card. Used my handmade sunburst stencil and cloud stencil. Stamped the sentiment, since it is the sentiment which has to standout, everything else is very subtle on this card.
I had picked up some of the colors, the background pattern on the wall, and the clouds from the inspiration picture.
Drew the stick woman myself(LOL, I am laughing too), used the cloud as a speech bubble.
Made a shaker card on the bee theme, I inked the colors yellow and black, and the colors kind of give a outline around the shaker panel (I could only get the top part in the picture), drew the sentiment myself ;-)
Posting this card with the CASology
My interpretation of the cue word is the colors, yellow and black, and the transparent panel used for the shaker part as the wings of the bee. The sentiment is drawn in a way to represent the bees path
Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate your feedback, if you are not in a hurry :) Have a great day!
