Sunday Stamps & Try Stampin' on a Tuesday ~ Belated Happy Birthday Grammie Kew!

Here we are Sunday again :) I have to admit the days all seem to be sort of blending together for us. With my husband on parental leave as well everyday seems like the weekend!

October was a busy month for us as so it just occurred to me a few days ago that we forgot to get a Birthday Card in the mail to Mark's grandmother who turned 75 on October 22nd! I am sure she will understand but just in case we are mailing this one off with some pictures of her sweet great grandkids to smooth things over :)

For this card I used our fabulous colour combo challenge over at Sunday Stamps and paired them with a fantastic sketch over at Try Stampin' on a Tuesday! It has been such a long time since I have been able to take part in two challenges at the same time and I sure hope to get back to some regular posting as life starts to settle down a little for us.

*NOTE: Have to apologize for the low quality of the photos, was forced to take them with my phone when I could not locate my camera!

My Challenges:

My Card:

I find myself always concerned with colouring in the lines and keeping things nice and clean but on this card I decided to go a little wild with some "messy colouring" hope you like :)

Thanks for stoppin by!


  1. This is beautiful Hayley! I love the layers and the "messy" colouring! :)

  2. I too love the messy colouring. Tara took the words out of my mouth. I think it adds a nice touch to your design!

  3. Your "messy" look is FANTABULOUS!!! I'm always careful with this stamp - I just may not worry about it anymore 'cause your card is great.

  4. Great card; this could easily pass for a masculine card I think. Great job, thanks for playing along with the TSOT sketch challenges.

  5. Hi Hayley, I love your card! Great creativity!! Thanks so much for joining us over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday. I hope you will come back and play again with us!
    Hugs, Sarah T
