A Numbers Card!

Numbers Card
           Dear friends I am on a "Challenge entering" spree ...I am surprised that I have managed to post 16 times this month. Last month I was debating stopping blogging altogether [ you can read about that rant here : simple handmade flowers] and this month here I am blogging as if I have nothing else to do!! I do feel a bit crazy!! Has that ever happened to you too?
My winnings from Lulupu
          I have a bad habit of hoarding crafty goodies for months and sometimes years especially if I have won them or been gifted them! Now I have resolved to use at least part of my winnings/ gifts as soon as possible !
         The gorgeous paper used in this simple card  was part of my winnings from the Craft Shop Lulupu [ owned by the talented Karuna]for this project : Spinning Pop Up Ball Card . It was just the perfect paper for me to make a card to enter the All sorts Challenge themed " Numbers"
Faux stitching
            I wanted the numbers to signify dates and the sentiment echoes "celebrate everyday"
            I wanted to add something in the empty space and  my handmade bird clay embellishment just seemed to scream " add me, add me"!!! Sorry I do sound like a loony lady dont I! Well I was thinking of my hubby when I made this sort of masculine plain card and he loves birds and enthuses so much when he sees any feathered being!
Clay embellishment
Supplies : Dies : Spellbinders Curved Borders 2  , Spellbinders Jewel Fantasies,Itsy Bitsy Labels
Edited : This card was chosen top 5 at All Sorts Numbers theme Challenge

  17. I think you get to a certain time in your existence when life becomes very choppy Sonia, and you know what - you can do whatever you want! Ain't nobody gunna tell you different either! At least that was/is my experience! You card for your hubby has a lovely warm glow to it - and I love the clay embellie you made. Thanks for sharing this with us for our September challenge and we hope to see you back soon!

  18. This is so beautifully creative, my wonderful friend! I love the tiny touches of elegance alongside the whimsical paper. I adore the way your crafty heart speaks and it is a joy to see your creations. Sending you lots of love tonight! :o)

    Hugs and blessings,

  19. Beautiful card...love the punched edge of the pattern paper!!!

  20. What a super card - I love the peacock feather embellishment behind the clay bird plaque, is it a die cut?
    I think there are too many "rules" in blogging, lots of should and shouldn'ts - especially about how often you post. Some say you should post once a day at the same time every day, but for crafters that's not how our brains work - sometimes we are inspired by our crafting and want to share it, and then we go on a posting blitz, other times we aren't in the mood and go for ages without posting. And that's fine - your blog is yours to do whatever you like with!

    1. Jane the feather is a Spellbinders die cut called jewel fantasies...though its such a beautiful die I dont use it enough....I am trying to get all the less used supplies out and play with them rather than keep on buying and hoarding! And yes you are so right about crafty brains working differently!

  21. Nice card. The colors are so cheerful. Love the feather tucked behind the little bird.

  22. Lovely card ! Wonderful use of the pattern paper and I loved your handmade clay embellishments:)
    I too have hoarded craft supplies :D !

  23. this is such a fun and creative Birthday card. Loving the little pearls at the bottom.

  24. Great male card Sonia. I love the sentiment I feel like I Celebrate every day when I wake.....just to be alive!!! Lovely cheery card that hubbie will treasure. Like how you journaled what makes a great boys card too......you're right adding what they love doing is a great idea. Thank you for sharing and the info about the feather die us is useful.

  25. Beautiful card Sonia! Such lovely elements!! And that happens to me also.. Some months I'm posting every other day and some months I only manage a few. And you're perfectly right about the masculine cards! That's what matters always!
