Thankful (Caardvarks Sketch)

7 May

Caardvarks, one of my favorite places for challenges, offered two sketches today. I chose the second one, found here and came up with this little happy card.

This sketch just lent itself to be made into a happy, summery, fun card. It’s fun with lots of elements to enjoy but it was not tooooooo complicated to create. For the sake of speed.

My One True Love (Caardvarks)

23 Jan

I read the description on the Caardvarks blog: Create a ***NEW*** card using the color red and don’t forget to incorporate hearts!

…and the image came to me quickly…a black background with a small heart window and an even smaller heart inside. Something for my beloved. So it needed to be masculine but still a part of me.

Just don’t tell him…he’ll have to wait to have it…February 14th.

Here is a close up of the center.

Happy Valentine’s Day… a little early.   Eli
