We put together various suggestions in one recipe. Christmas + purple + paper tearing + a hole. I thought we were joking but we weren't! I think this is one of the hardest ones I have done. Funny isn't it?! However everyone else has come up with STUNNING cards and I am sure you will too if you join in!
Anyway here are my "efforts"
It is NOT a square card - so maybe that was my problem! I used papers from Pink Petticoat - the images are from there too. I've not used the site before but the designs are lovely. The baubles I printed out, outlined with Sakura Glaze and added Stickles. There is also some inking, brads and more stickles. I can't put my finger quite on what is wrong with it - maybe the papers don't quite tone together? Is it too busy? Any ideas? I probably will end up outlining everything!
I tried a second one - not much better
this card is teeny tiny, a freebie that came with the stickers used, from a magazine ages ago. Then I sued two more Pink Petticoat papers - they are lilac rather than blue but lilac is a hard colour to photograph.
Here is another card I made this week - that I am much more comfortable with!
When someone has an "0" birthday at Church we sign a big card. We suddenly realised that there was a special birthday this week so I rustled up this one. Cream square card, Basic Grey Perhaps 6x6 papers, gold brads and outlining. Stamped greeting from SA kit for August embossed in detail gold. Chipboard from a previous SA kit and that a bit of white card given the Krylon pen treatment.
The card was made with scraps from something that I have sent to Tracie and Wayne for their wedding - I will show you that tomorrow when they are wed! Many blessings on your life together!
- Hywel had a A for his Science GSCE. He did three papers and does more this year so we are not quite sure what this means!
- We still don't know his French result.
- Which is why we are going away later next year so he can get his results on the day - and so may miss the beginning of the school term...
- there is a crop at my church - how cool is that! It is run by "the scrapbook girls" in aid of Make a Wish. If you are in the Romford area on the 15th September why not join in - you can book here
- Carys made a lovely headstone for Spot
