Happy Birthday to Dad…shhhh

Hello everyone! Just to update you, I did not have a post for you all last week because sadly I had no mojo to make a card since we had lost our sweet dog Bella. She had been sick for some time and we had to make a very hard decision and had to put her down to release her from her suffering. It has been hard adjusting to life in the house without her. She was a really sweet dog. We miss her!

Today I am sharing a super secret birthday card I made for my Dad so shhhh….mums the word. His birthday is coming up on October 5th. I used the sweet Polka Dot Pals Heidi for this card. She is one of my favorites.

Creative Bloggers Hop

Good Afternoon everyone, hope you all had a productive weekend with your crafts. 
I was asked by Donna Mosley to participate in the CREATIVE BLOGGERS HOP which is a continuous blog hop that takes place every Monday. Last Monday Donna answered a few questions about her craftiness and now this Monday it is my turn. 

What am I working on at the moment?

Right now I am working on a card that I am making for my Dad's birthday. His birthday is coming up on October 4th so it will be here before I know it. I also need to get busy making a card for my Facebook design team post for Wednesday. 

How does my work differ from others in my genre?

My cards are pretty clean and simple for the most part. I see so many wonderful cards out there that have a ton of detail and while I would love to make cards like that, it just doesn't seem to be my style at least not yet. I think once I learn to make cards that way I might change and love doing it. I don't think we should ever feel stuck doing or creating things a certain way. Im all about learning new techniques when I can find the time. 

Why do I create what I do?

I had gotten the bug for scrapbooking a long time ago and then I was introduced to Copic makers and making cards and I fell in love with them!!! I pretty much gave up scrapbooking and now just focus my creativity on making cards. I love giving them to people and have fun in the process.

How does your creative process work?

First I think of the occasion I need the card for such as birthday, anniversary, thank you card, etc. then I  get inspiration by looking at cards that others have made or I go to my Pinterest account and look up card sketches and color combos and also try to find the perfect stamp that I think will work. Then I color up the image and finally put it all together on a card. Sometimes I pick the the papers I want to use in the beginning and sometimes I do it after I have already colored the image. I just do what I am in the mood for ;0)

And thats a wrap! Now I am suppose to nominate someone to answer these same questions for next week, I decided to nominate the ever so talented Becky Pearce. She really goes all out on her cards and I aspire to be just as good as her someday!!!

Thanks for reading and have an awesome day!!!
