Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and getting over your coughs, colds and bugs etc. I am so looking forward to having all the windows open and fresh air blowing through the house, we do have our bedroom windows open for a while in the morning to air the room out but the house looses heat super fast and takes ages to warm back up.
Just as soon as the weather warms up a little all windows will be open, get that stale air and germs blown away. I do think thats the reason that our winter bugs last longer.
Today's card is my Sketch Challenge card, I used the beautiful 'Needlepoint Nook' Dsp and Matching 'Needle & Thread' stamp set.
I cut a Night of Navy Card Base to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inch, the cut a Whisper White layer 1/4 inch smaller, I stamped a couple if the stitched flourish stamps from the stamp set, I next cut a piece of Night of Navy Card and added a pieceof the Dsp to that then adhered that to the card base. I then created a border with a piece of the same paper but using its reverse side, I layered that over a piece of the New White Flax Ribbon and frayed the ends. To make the topper I stamped a sentiment from the set and added some tiny butterflies (also a stamp in the set). I mounted this onto a Night of Navy matt and added foam pads to raise it off of the card.
To finish the card I die cut three tiny butterflies in Night Of Navy with a White detailed top layer, I added these along the bottom of my DSP layer, I then die cut a 'Thanks' from the new 'Well Written' sentiment dies. I added a few sparkle gems to the butterflies.
I hope it gives you a little inspiration.
Thats all from me for today, apart from sending special hugs to Pat and Pete xxx
Val I also send gentle hugs your way and hope you are on the mend. xxx
Love and hugs to you all,
