Sleepy Sundays: Nightshow

This Sunday as we crept back into our old timeslot,
I decided it best to share two designs with you this weekend instead of just one.
There’s good reason behind it, as I am working on a summer collection.

Hope you are all having a relaxing weekend. From our hearts to yours.

Have a bright and beautiful Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Where We Walk

I know there are people out there like me that avoid the internet on days like these for reasons that don’t need explanation. So, for that I’ll keep today’s Sleepy Sundays very simple.

For those of you out there today missing someone, I’m there with you.

~For Dad~

 

Have a peaceful Sunday.

Sleepy Sundays: Spaces

There’s been a lot going on in the world of Snapping Turtle recently involving a possible move that is no longer happening. We are trying to remain open anyway due to the changes. We apologize for any rescheduling inconveniences. To hopefully somehow make up for our crazy personal lives there are again two designs being shared this weekend instead of just one.

You’ll have to stay tuned for their stories as we transition into new horizons.

A lot is changing here at CardCastles and in our lives and we are thankful some of you have continued with us and myself during this journey.

Have a peaceful Sunday

Sleepy Sundays: Gourd

It’s October 1st! We made it here in one piece! That usually signals exactly what this custom design is evoking today—fall-themed greetings. I’ve been having a lot of fun playing around with some custom brushes I made for one of my programs at home and this design was the result of that. There’s also been some new apps that found a home in my design arsenal that help me play around with watercolor effects and lighting and some neat 3D texture effects.

I will be designing fall greeting card templates like these all October long for incoming clients and to give out to friends and family.

What are your plans this October? Do tell. You know I love a good coffee chat.

Have a breezy Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Star Song

Star Song

Have you ever heard it reported that stars can generate sound? I remember hearing it on an astronomy-related science program late one night and the possibility fascinated me. Space always has. My son is no different. We often talk about outer space but yet somehow the conversation always turns back into superheroes. While reading about more science-related topics about our skies over the weekend my mind couldn’t help but wander from paperwork. I created this sci-fi character with all of those thoughts in mind. We haven’t given her a name yet, but her first appearance it titled Star Song, and I imagine her to be a singer from some other planet far away. 🙂

Do you watch the skies? Ever see anything strange?

Do tell. You know I love a good coffee chat!

Have a sparkling Sunday!
