I hope that you are all well, we had a very icy start to the day yesterday, the sun did burn through the fog though, so it was a lovely bright day but very cold.
I am hoping that we will have good driving weather this morning ready for our Journey to Watford, I am really looking forward to seeing those of you that can make it today x
Your Next Challenge
Karen suggested our Challenge this week, it's a really good Challenge, I believe it is certainly something that we can all manage quite easily and you could even make Christmas Cards for this challenge!!
So what is it I hear you ask?????
Karen would like you all to make card or cards making the Sentiment the Main Focus of the card.
I used an old embossing folder that has different 'Birthday' greetings all over it, I used Bermuda Bay card an ink for this card, I stamped my 'Happy Birthday' onto white card, and trimmed it to the same width as the embossed piece, I then die cut and attached two little Border Detail die cuts, cut in the same Bermuda Bay card, it just kind of finishes the sentiment strip and frames the piece.
Framing the sentiment makes it more of a feature too.
To finish I added some clear crystal gems to the dots on that border strip, to give a touch of luxury and then I decided to add a couple of little flowers on the top and bottom of the sentiment strip.
So I think that it's the Sentiment that draws your eye on this card, do you?
I have some cards in my files from older cards that fit this challenge so I will add them to the Blog tomorrow.
Thanks so much Karen for coming up with a great challenge, I can't wait to see what everyone makes! XXX
I hope that you are all ready for the weekend, what do you all have planned? Not much going on here, I need to record my video for 'inlovearts' but apart from that we don't have too much on.
I will tell you all about our Watford Meet up tomorrow,
