To everyone. Hope you have had a good week. I purposefully stayed away from the computer the last few days, because I had some important cards to make & I didn’t want to be distracted – it is astonishing how quickly time goes by when you’re checking out all the beautiful crafting blogs & websites. I made four cards this week & I will post them over the next few days.
This one is for a docrafter who is going through a heartbreaking time at the moment. Those of us who miss her on the forum wanted to let her know we are thinking of her. I used Clare Curd’s docrafts’ sketch for this week – hope you can see the layout. The backing paper is from Dovecraft’s Laura Ashley Contemporary range. The daffodil stamp is from Papermania’s new set of unmounted stamps for Marie Curie Cancer Care – £2 of the £4.99 price goes to Marie Curie. I stamped the image four times with a Versafine Black Onyx ink pad, coloured each one with Whispers pens, cut out three of the flowers & layered them using foam pads. I wanted to heat emboss the image because I had bought lots of embossing powders for virtually nothing in one of the January sales on a crafting website – can’t remember which one. But guess which one I DON’T have? That’s right, I have no CLEAR embossing powder – grrrrr!! 🙂 So I used a clear lacquer instead on the image & now I have to buy more embossing powder. The ribbons are from Crafty Ribbons & everything else – flowers, pearly adhesive gems & sentiment – are from my stash. Hopefully, she will like it.
Tara at Happily Ever Crafting is giving away this gorgeous blog candy to celebrate 10,000 hits!! All she asks is that you follow her blog & tell her your favourite song. She will draw a winner on January 31.
I’m going to finish by saying how much Rica’s comment on my Tilda Challenge cards made me laugh. Honey, if you think your trail of debris is bad, you should see my front room – it looks like a tornado made a pitstop!! 🙂
Love & light.
