Is it Thursday already? I was looking for a layout for my next card and I decided to peek in at ICS and see what they have for us this week. And boy am I glad I did! Their sketch is fabulous.
I used my clear stamps (from a blog giveaway win sometime ago).

 I also submitted the same to these challenges;-
ICS- sketch #85
Incy Wincy Designs- anything goes.
Enjoy and thanks for looking.

Celebration and sewing.

Happy monday!
I made a card using another sketch from card patterns blog.

Their sketch #82 was very lovely.
I tried to be minimal on this one and I like the end result.
My card also fits in with this weeks card challenge at Florishes. The theme was celebrate. I think I just did and may make a birthday card tonight with their theme.
 I also had sometime this weekend to sew for my son. I made him a shirt using this tutorial from my favorite sewing blog Made. Forgive the awful, awful taken-in-the-dark-with-a- fidgety-baby- picture, The boy and the shirt quite a handsome pair.
The 90- minute Shirt.
I used some cream knit fabric and grey ribbing for the neck. Now a quick question, I have been seeing a lot of blogs celebrating the Fall theme, can you tell me what are the colours of fall? patterns?
I live in the right on the equator and basically as far as seasons go its either hot (most of the year), or cold and raining from around July to September.
Enjoy and thanks for looking.

Smile :-)

Am playing along with the Sketch #84 from the ICS this week.
The sketch is very simple and inspiring for a beginner like me.

Here is what I made:-

Am not entirely proud of this card (** sigh) too much going on but live and learn.

Thank you.

 Thank you for visiting my blog.
I made this card with the very inspirational sketch#82 provided by the lovely Card Patterns blog.
 I usually tend to interpret the sketches very literally then I visit someone's blog and see their interpretation and go like ' why couldn't I think of that'. Anyway there is much for me to learn. Take a look at my card;-

I went along with some green fabric which was from a giveaway win sometime ago. Since I am not much of a quilter I will be using more of these charm packs in my cards.
Am also entering this card in the following challenges:

Thank you for showing me some comment love. I really enjoy visiting your lovely blogs.

Thinking of You

I made this card using the sketch provided by the very inspirational ICS. I was not quite sure of the black paper and then thought- How about orange?. I also added some texture and I must say I like it!! This was the sketch:-

Here is my card:-
I could have stamped an image but I don't own any stamps decided to use my stash of paper flowers. :-).
This card also fits in with My Sheri Crafts challenge#22 .  I used my ' Thinking of you' stamp. I made this card for my best friend Ann to send along together with an apron am sewing for her.
Can't wait for next week to make more cards. A lovely weekend to you all!

A ' Hello' card!

I made this card as part of the Cupcake Craft Challenges.
This was my first attempt and I must say I had so much fun.
You are basically required to make a card using the sketch provided for that particular week.
Stuff I used: A maple leaf punch, a hand made flower, a ribbon, some blue card stock, cream card stock and a 'hello' clear stamp.  One word;- Fun!
