Daring Cardmakers - I Like Pie!

Hi again!

Oof, really? Almost a week since my last post? And haven't had a chance to do comments either - but I promise I'll do better!

I saw this challenge up on Daring Cardmakers, and the second I saw this the little gears between my ears started to turn.. So the theme is "I Like Pie" and we're supposed to use something that has to do with Maths in our cards! I don't know about you, but I have never been able to make cards just for the sake of making cards - I always need to know who it's for, or else that I'm making it for a certain occasion like Christmas.. But this one, I just loved how much fun this was, and a theme that you might not come up with as your regular theme for a card :)

What you can't really see in the photo is, that the graph itself is popped up a little with foam tape, and the hearts are glued on so that they sit on a drop of glue, so they're a little raised too..

The "time" is part of a Tim Holtz stamp set and the "love" is from an "i love you ❤️" stamp that Stephanie Barnard has designed for Sizzix. 

I am really liking the challenges at Daring Cardmakers - they have really inspired me to make cards, and who knows? I might even find myself with a stash of ready-to-use cards soon! I have to admit, it's a lot more fun making cards without the stress of a deadline (especially since I always end up procrastinating until the 11th hour!)..

The reason for me not having time for blogland the past week is that the second wave of spring flu hit us. First my son last week, and now me. So I'm writing this with a slight temperature and on my phone. Commenting on phone hasn't really worked out for me yet, think I have to get another browser since clearly, Safari can't keep up with my blogging-demands! That's another headache for another day though. 

Off to lie down again - see you soon, and thanks for stopping by!



  1. What a brilliant take on the theme! Now that I look at it even an "obvious" one - only none of us has thought of it so far... *g*
    And also it's great to hear that you like our challenges so much :-) Thanks a lot for playing along with the Daring Cardmakers this week - and get well soon!

  4. Wow love it, fantastic idea love those sweet little hearts. Thanks for joining in at daring cardmakers.

  5. I think this card is just marvelous, Sofia! You did a great job with the theme! I used to sell my cards in a small boutique so that helped me get used to the idea of making cards based on type: birthday, get well, etc., rather than for a specific person. Then when I started blogging and playing in challenges, it was no problem playing "for fun." I think in hundreds of cards, there have one been three that didn't really work for anyone I know and so I ended up recycling them, but usually I don't have any trouble finding cards a home. I hope you and your son are all well by now! Hugs, Darnell
