in the nicest possible way.
It is my turn to set the Dare on Daring Cardmakers this week and I chose the theme of knots - any way you like it!
The girls have come up trumps and I think the blog looks fab. I made two cards as a far few people are away at the mo'. One of them explains why I am so late in blogging today...
The papers I used for this card are actually Basic Grey Christmas ones. The groom is welsh and I knew that the colours were from the Welsh flag so the papers were perfect. I had no end of trouble getting a photo though. There is loads of sparkle on the front and when I snapped it yesterday afternoon it just came out cold and blue. These photos were taken late at night and are a little better with the flash! The middle section is raised on foam pads as I wasn't posting the card. I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder; Imagine That stamp; nestabilities dies and Papertrey ink ribbon; ooh and Glamour Dust and red glitter.
As the pad was out I used the same set for my dads birthday card. I paper pieced some ties.
Life is still very hectic for a whole host of reasons at the moment but that is ok. I had a 45 minute break today so persuaded Carys to come with me to the beach to sit and have an icecream. Can't be bad eh?
