Fiskateer NSD Online Crop Card

Although I couldn't really participate in the Fiskateer NSD Online Crop this past weekend, I did take time out to participate in the Pre-NSD Challenge by making this card. The challenge was to make a quick card. I just used the paper, added googlie eyes & a sentiment and the card was finished. I think this had to have been my quickest card ever. lolI also took part in Rebecca's "Black, White & Pink Elegance" online class. I was a lucky winner of this class. She shipped up all the materials to us for the class. We had a black board book & box to decorate & the papers, rubons, etc are so pretty. I love the black & white papers. The class was done over Livestream and it was the first time I've taken part in a Fiskateer class. We managed to get 4 pages done during the class time & when I get mine finished, I'll post it here.

New Cards

Lately I've been struggling to find time to craft without feeling guilty. I'm starting to get closer to my goal of finishing these renovations. Last week I had a new laminate floor installed in my kitchen. Today my new appliances delivered will be delivered. Soon I can start unpacking all the boxes that are currently stored in my livingroom. I can't wait to empty it out & get my new livingroom furniture delivered. With all the work I have to do around the house and having health issues that makes it difficult to keep at it for any length of time, sneaking away to craft leaves me with a guilty feeling. It's been a long time since I've spent my days crafting.

Twice a month 3 of my GF's & I get together and take turns showing a new project, card or technique. Last week was my turn and these are the two card ideas that I came up with. Neither of them were my original ideas.

This first card is perfect to celebrate those hot summer days or as an invite to an afternoon get together.Like a lot of other bloggers these days, I seem to be hooked on flower techniques. I came across this "Sweet Pea" flower using the SU Butterfly Punch and thought I'd give it a try. I liked how it turned out. I decided to do it for my second class card.Then just for fun I had to feed my punch addiction by trying out this cute poodle I came across on a blog. I love punches and really enjoy all the neat things that you can do with them.Thanks for looking & have a great day!
