Birthday Card Using Two TLC Digi's

Hi to everyone in Blogland.  I hope all of you are doing well.  I made this card last August, 2014; but haven't had time to post it.  My daughter and grandchildren are here; but I was too sick to go with them for any activities so far.  My husband took vacation so that he could take them every day to do something fun. It is so upsetting to have planned this trip for so long; and then to get sick.  I got sick the first day of our vacation last month; but don't feel well enough to play yet.  I just wanted to get something posted on here; because I haven't posted since May 18th with anything new.

I taught my grandkids, Abigail (15 yrs), Lana (12 yrs) and Jayden (11 yrs). how to create simple cards with stamping and how to create a simple layered card. They are all loving it.  I know they will be asking their mother for lots of crafting supplies now.  Their mother wasn't too happy about that.  LOL!  They love to draw and create things and they love my cards I create for them; so it was a lot of fun for me to teach them a few basics.

I am sending them home with as many supplies as I can to get them started.  I ordered the special on the adorable Crush Journals below and I also ordered a lot of CTMH products to help them get started in stamping and creating.  I had to have everything from scratch.  It is so much fun! They said they wanted me to get them for their early Christmas gifts.  My grandson, Jayden, has already watched 4 of my videos.  He is so excited.  They each created two cards so far; one for Father's day and one for their mother.

I was able to go to Disneyland with my daughter and grandchildren yesterday; and what a long day.  We left at 6:30 am and arrived at 8:30 am; stayed until midnight.  It was exhausting; but a fun day for everyone!  

I created this card for my sister Becky.  Her birthday was in August and I thought this freebie from TLC was perfect for her.  She loves flowers.  I love the plaid background and the colors that Paulette chose for this (partially pre-colored) free digi.  I colored the flowers and the leaves.

I colored the flowers and the leaves.

  14. nice card, but you didn´t read the text at paperminutes...
    my freestyle rules: "...but only one layer and by hand.....nothing punched, no designpaper, you shouldn´t take an image and glue it on....use your fantasy, colours, paper, tape and stamps....and - of course - your hands..."

    Hugs, Heike

    1. So sorry Heike. I think I saw "Freestyle" and went with it. I didn't see the English version of the notes. I will check further next time. Hugs, Gloria
