Just Because

 
Hello, happy Wednesday everyone! This "Just Because" card was inspired from Creative Craft Challenges where I used Meljen's Triple Treat Cupcakes. I colored them with my Prismacolors. Aren't they yummy and cute?  
 
 
 
Papers are from the DCWV Sweet Cupcake Pad and I embossed some light brown cardstock with my dots embossing folder. I also added some ribbon, some green heart resins from my stash and doodled around the border. Sentiment is from PTI and to finish it off, I added a glittered heart.
 
 

 
Hope you like it!

Happy Birthday M



Hello my friends, this week has been a tedious one since both kids were sick. It was like they were each taking turns to be sick. My son just finished being on antibiotics that it was my daughter's turn to be sick and she had a high fever of 39C!!! Of course, took her to the Dr, waited for 2 hrs to hear that it was only a viral cold!!Grrr!!! Now, she's feeling better and hopefully she will be going back to school tomorrow.

Today, I made a birthday card for my dearest friend M who will celebrating soon. When I colored McKenzie, I had her eclectic style in mind. It wasn't easy but here's my take with this sketch from Delightful Inspirations.

Happy 6th Birthday

 
Hello everyone, this dyno-mite card was made for a friend's son who celebrated his 6th birthday today. My kids and myself had so much fun indoors at the indoor playground. The weather was very cold and windy though. We all loved our time spent in the big slides and mummy was happy too. Tonight will be a very good one :-)
 
 
The image is from "From the Heart Stamps" and I used the sketch below. Colored the dinosaur with prismacolored pencils and papers are from my stash. Sentiment comes with the dinosaur which was perfect for this cold, windy weather.

Be Mine


This will be my last Valentine's project for this  year and I chose to play with the Hero Arts "A Natural Love" Digis.  I bought this last year and never had the chance to play with it. 

This month's theme is Love & Lace and a sketch challenge with a fun fold technique.




I decided to kill two birds with one stone. I went with an easel card and added the love & lace too.

The heart and patterned paper are from Martha Stewart's Valentine paper pad. The squirrels were colored with prismacolored pencils and I added some googly eyes. I also added some lace from my stash and the sentiment is one that I typed up "My Heart is overflowing with Love". 

TIP: To make the banner sentiment, fold ends back on themselves to create the look.

Creations by AR ‘Love is in the Air’ Customer Blog Hop


 Welcome to the Creations by AR 'Love is in the Air' Customer Blog hop. I am the last station on the hop and if you happen to come by here, please start on Lisa's to get hopping.

The theme of the hop is Valentine's Day and I chose the Paper Planter Freebie as my template. All instructions are included with this template which to me was a bonus.  I chose to do two planters since I wanted to showcase how they can be decorated differently.

I did not need a lot of tools since I needed only a scoring board, my pair of scissors and my printer. The rest of the supplies used for each template is listed below.



 For this one, I printed the template on Gina K Cherry Red Cardstock, scored and cut the template. I also chose to decorate the outside with some Martha Stewart Valentine's papers, added some adhesived heart ribbons on a roll and tied the corners with some red baker's twine.


For the second one, I chose to print the template directly on the Martha Stewart patterned paper and scored. Instead of punching the holes on the corners, I decided to hold the corners with some brown baker's twine and added some adhesived glittered ribbon on a roll for the borders.

 
ETA: I thought I had this picture here but I was wrong. My sincere apologies!
 
There will be one blog hop prize (a new, not-yet-released CbyAR template) randomly chosen from all comments. Please leave comments on each of our blogs and once you finish hopping, please visit the CbyAR Facebook page and leave a comment there as well - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Creations-by-AR/154314751303824 .
