Multi Fold Card

Evening Everyone Just wanted to share a new card I tried out for the first time tonight. It isn't one of my best but I guess it did still turn out to be a cute card. I think where I went wrong was I tried to make it into a Christmas Card. Had I made a birthday card I would have had more options for embellishing it. Anyway I hope you like it and get some inspiration from it. Have a great evening.
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great evening everyone, everywhere! Hugs Shirl

Twisted Sketches #102 - Luck

Hi Everyone This weeks Twisted Sketches card sketch came not only with the cutest sketch ever but the twist of *luck* so I decided to make a good luck card. I was thinking as in goodbye and goodluck! I hope with all the wet weather we are having at the moment that you can put some quality time aside to hit the craft desk and get creative. Be sure to check out the Twisted Sketches Blog for not only some great inspiration but some great challenges too. Can't wait to see what you all come up with. Happy Crafting.
Til next time. Hugs Shirl

Twisted Sketches #101 - TWO

This card is the latest of the Twisted Sketches that has just been put on the blog. The twist this week was "two" and co-incides with the blog turn two years old. Congratulations Anam on two wonderful years filled with talented card makers and scrapbookers and fantastic sketches.
For my take on the twist I decided to make a card using just TWO COLOURS. A friend of mine is trying to get organised and make her xmas cards early so I thought I would join her by making a couple of cards a month. Have a great day. Hugs Shirl

Twisted Sketches #100 - Grow

Good Afternoon Everyone Well I am a tad surprised that I have been such a slack blogger!! I was sure I had posted more recently than I last did so the first order of business is to say a big SORRY for being so slack again. My first share for the afternoon is one of two of my latest Twisted Sketches Cards. This was my first ever (pretty much) all cricut card. I used my new Create a Critter cartridge to make the cute little owls. The fence was punched out with a Cheery Lynn Die and the branch was another cricut carty.
Please be sure to pop on over to Twisted Sketches and check out all the great cards and layouts from all the very talented Sistahs. Hugs Shirl
