I thought that it might be a nice fun idea and a way of giving your 'mojo' boost (as it may be like mine and still think its the holiday's) to have a go at creating a card by using a 'Sketch'. If any of you haven't seen them before, they are basic layout ideas for cards, you can choose any card, papers and embellishments you like, you can used stamped images or card toppers or die cuts, it's entirely up to you, the idea is you use the 'sketch' above to design your card around.
I used a Lilli of the Valley Topper and some My Minds Eye papers for my card, them I made some flowers to look like daisies to embellish the card. You don't need to use a 'flag' die like I have. You could use ribbon, twine or lace or a die cut border.
I made a card just to give you an idea. I thought that maybe we could show your designs next Sunday before posting a new Challenge on the Monday.
What do you think? Good idea?
I am really looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.
Well it's all back to routine in our house today, girls are off to school, gosh it's scary to think in 6 months they will be finished!!
Matt is back to work too and Paul is on nights tonight and tomorrow night.
I need to get in my craft room and gut it and give it a good clean out, Milo has taken to jumping upon a shelf that's about 8ft up, it has a box with all my Mica powders in on it, which he decided to knock down, along with a huge tub of die cuts, the contents of the two made a delightful mess, the lids were clearly loose on a couple of mica powders too, making a lovely shimmery mess on the carpet! At the time I was too busy to clean out up properly,I just picked the worst of it up, so I need to get in with my hoover too! I may be some time, intact it could be Wednesday before I make it out so if there is no blog tomorrow you know where I'll be!
I am looking forward to my first Hochanda delivery, I ordered one of the sets of dies that were featured on Sue's shows on Saturday.
I would also like to sing the praises of the Platinum machine, I love it, using the plates from my many Grand Caliburs is so helpful and also means that my dies aren't getting bent! So far so good!!
Have a great day everyone!
Love and Hugs
