Day 7! In case you missed it; It’s that time again, A-Z Challenge season! This month I am keeping things simple, sharing makes, past and present, as well as a few I’ll try to create just for the challenge! At the end of the first full week, I’m sharing some fun handmade good luck cards.
Each post I will try to share around five or six pics of handmade cards, using different styles, methods and elements. For an added challenge, I will be working entirely from my craft stash! (I do have a ridiculous amount of papers, embelishments and what not to use!)
The April A-Z Challenge
What is it all about? Basically posting every day throughout April, except Sundays. Following the alphabet, whether keeping to a theme or otherwise. It’s a great challenge, and one of my favourite parts is meeting other bloggers!

An A-Z of Handmade Cards
This year for MY April A-Z Challenge; I have chosen a running theme of handmade cards. Although I make cards for every occasion, it is rare these days, for me to actually share them! So throughout April I will be sharing cards I have made, to both share, and perhaps inspire others to give card making a try! I will endeavour to use a variety of creative methods, covering many every-day events.
Good Luck Cards
I love working to a theme, even if the theme is something so simple as a single sentiment…
If you’d like any of the cards from the challenge, get in touch… We could sort something out maybe!
These are intentionally simple at the moment, as I generally personalise cards, or add appropriate sentiments, when it comes to using them, for example, new job, exams and so on… These were fun to make, I tried to make different styles and use a variety of elements.
Good luck cards are always handy to have around, and I love making a variety of styles and colours. I also like playing around with patterns and even textures occasionally!
