Good Morning Ladies,
Today I fancied a little bit of peach, I have only recently discovered a liking for this colour and now
I have to stop myself from picking it up all the time.
This card started when I took some Creative Expression Foundation Card in Peach, I used the Criss Cross Mask, from That Special Touch (Stamps away) and applied some Cosmic Shimmer Clear Sparkle Medium through the mask and left it overnight to dry.
I loved the effect so much that I couldn't wait to use it! I took the Classis Adorned Rectangles and The Ornate pierced Rectangles and made a frame to go around my sparkly background.
I used some Peach Coloured Seam Binding, Also from Creative Expressions and tied a double bow, using a little piece of the Delicate Fronds die cut card to accent the flower in the centre of the bow.
I finished with a few Peach coloured Pearls.
I hope you like the card, I was trying to capture the 'Spring Feel' .
Janet I hope you made it home safe and sound and have started the huge job of unpacking, there is nothing like getting in and having that first cup of tea though is there? A cup of tea doesn't taste as good anywhere in the world as it does at home!
Saba, sweetheart, today will be a very emotional day for you as you prepare to Leave Val and your family behind, try and focus on those arms that will welcome you home though, We will all be here to fill that void when you get home, I am sure you will feel lost for a few days, and catch up on some sleep too, as I expect you have crammed as much into every minute of everyday that you have been away!
I am going to try and set myself a goal of making at least three cards this week, I seemed to have lost my mojo of late and have lots of PHD's! I think you just have to be in the right frame of mind, so I gave myself a 'virtual' kick up the pants and I made myself sit and complete this card between 5pm and 8pm last night, (that is good for me)!
Maureen you put me to shame making 4 cards and boxes in one day, well done you!
Well I must get on so as to keep to my goal,
I will call in again later to catch up with you all, thanks for being such a great support team!
Love and hugs to all of you,
Ps I think there are 187 sleeps till Retreat time!
