My Artistic Therapy
When life gets tough, start crafting!
Good morning my crafty friends! This morning I would like to share with you a card I made for the Splitcoast Stampers Ways to use it challenge (WT774). The challenge was to make a shaker card. Now I will be honest and say that I am not very good at these cards. There is a lot of practice to be done on making these cards right, as they do have several steps necessary to complete. But as they say, practice makes perfect, right!
I’d like to hear what cards or paper crafting projects you may struggle with. What cards or paper crafting projects are you good at? Let me know in the comments.

Good evening! Today I would like to share with you a card I created for the CC Designs April Challenge. The theme of the challenge was "make a birthday card."
I used one of my favorite retired images, "Big Sister & Little Brother." These two remind me so much of my own kids!
I used my alcohol markers to color the image as well as the embellishments I cut from Cricut Design Studio. The "Cake Day" sentiment, also cut from Cricut Design Studio is written on with a gold glitter pen. I cannot remember where my paper came from, as it was given to me by a friend at the last scrapbook retreat I attended. The card design was my own.
I hope you have enjoyed today's card. If you'd like to join in, follow the CC Designs Challenge Blog!
