C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 475 – 5th of July – Inspiration Picture

This week’s challenge at CRAFT is based on an inspirational picture of a summer harbour. We are looking for your take on this subject. Whether you show us water, summer fun, boats, etc, I decided to take the challenge quite literally. I just got back from a fabulous vacation in  Newfoundland, Canada. “The Rock” they call the province, is a real hidden gem. The harbour in my photo is from an area/town called Bonavista. It is a picture perfect little community full of wonderful people. I made this card to send to a special little girl I met there. The duck is a fun little Bugaboo digital stamp I coloured with my Copic markers, and the Hello die cut is from MFT.

Happy Canada Day Everyone! I had to create Canada Day Cards for my friend’s adorable grandchildren. Two are from the USA and to other two are from Canada. I used papers, stamps and dies from Photo Play. The stamped images were coloured using Copic markers.

This week the C.R.A.F.T. Design Team is looking for a project that focuses on Outdoors Play. I selected an adorable digital stamp called, “Captain Owen” by Paper Nest Dolls. I made two versions of this stamp. I started by printing the image in two different sizes and coloured Owen with my Copic Markers. To embellish the card I used various papers, wooden pieces, die cuts from my stash.

Happy Birthday to Us

Happy Birthday to Us

Happy Birthday Dear C.R.A.F.T. Challenge

Happy Birthday to Us!

 

Can you believe it? CRAFT Challenge is already 9 years old. Originally started by Tracy from Just Tracy Crafts and with a DT mostly recruited from Trimcraft forum members (Hence the term CRAFT Challenge, which stood for Crafters Residing Are Friendly Trimmies. Or if you wished alternative meaning of Can’t Remember A Flipping Thing) on the 4th of May 2009.

We have now grown to be a large team of Design Team Members from all around the world, supplemented with several Guest Designers who join us for a month or a week at a time.

We have always welcomed all kinds of craft, not just paper craft (unless specifically stated so in the challenge at the time) and are happy to have such a large group of faithful followers.

So, how are we going to celebrate this milestone?

Well, how else can we celebrate than to have our yearly Blogaversary Blog Hop?

We all feature sponsors for this blog hop on our blogs and I have the honour of featuring and offering a prize from the following sponsor. You can win this prize by adding your name to Inlinkz at the end of this post. I would love to see your comments as well.

And here is my project for this week, hope you like it.

I created my card using Bugaboo’s Digital Stamp Birthday Unicorn Set. Because it is our 9th Anniversary, I added images to both the front and inside of my card. I coloured the images with Copic markers, then added clear Wink of Stella for that magical feeling. The happy birthday die cuts are by Lawn Fawn.
