Nothing to show

Hi there,

Today I have no cards to show you. I just wanted to let you know, that I'm still around and at the moment only making cards for special occassions in my family, which I'll post when they've taken place.

I'm still working on my essay for my exam in economics, which is now only 1 month away. That is really hard work, I can tell you, for a language mind to change to economics.
I do hope that I'll manage at least to pass the exam. Please cross your fingers on June 23rd.

I've been asked if I want to take a supplementary exam on June 17th, but I'm very much in doubt if I can manage to do both. Luckily I can wait to commit to this exam for another 1½ weeks, so if I can finish my essay before that, I MIGHT do the second exam, but I'm taking one step at the time.

Well, until I'm over the exam or exams the blog will be quiet. I'll be back very soon after that, and I hope that you'll come back to take a peak of my cards again by then.

Be happy crafting!
Hugs, Kirsten

Birthday card for a brother-in-law

Hi There,

Today I'm going to show you the birthday card I made for my big sisters husband, whose birthday was last week.

I was given the image by the wonderful Sarah Burr, who is a fellow Clowdie of mine. She draw some awesome digis and made this image available for those of use, who wanted it.

The image actually looks a bit like my brother-in-law and when colouring it in black/gray/white and with brown eyes it really looks like him - at least to me it does.

I've chosen a background, I've learned in a background class in Kit and Clowder, using alcohol to make the "bubbles" in the colouring.

I made it a cas card adding only a few gems at the corners. I don't think guys like too much embellishment on their cards, so I kept it simple.

Sarah Burr has already seen the finished project, but I didn't want to publish it until my Brother-in-Law had received the card.

Feel free to leave a message to let me know, if you like my card.

Please join my blog, if you would like to see my project on a regular basis.

Be happy crafting!

Frankie Knuckles by Kenny K

Hi there,

Today I'll show you another card made a couple of months ago and was given to my eldest nephew for his birthday in February.

The image i by Kenny K and a great image it is. There are so few male images out there, so I'm always very happy when I finally find one. I don't want to use the same image for my male relatives, so it's always hard work finding these digis, when another male birthday is coming up.

I'm pretty happy with the way he turned out. And I didn't want a lot of embellishments to take focus from him - and I'm not sure my male relatives likes bows and flowers on their cards, so it ended up being a CAS card with only dark purple pearls in difference sizes to match his background.

I put him on a dark purple background matching his blouse and the pearls and the second background of the sentiment. I also used three nuances of brown card as backgrounds.

Feel free to leave a message to let me know, if you like my card.
