My 1st Man Challenge card
Good Monday Morning Ladies,
Welcome to the start of another week here on the blog, have any of you started your 'Man' cards yet, I find them so hard to get inspired to start, I did force myself to sit and make on yesterday afternoon.
A Nice Idea....
Michele made a lovely suggestion to me yesterday and I said I would mention it on the blog today,
the suggestion was :
For us all to make one Easter style card and sent it to someone else (from the blog), I can draw partners for all those interested, I think that if none of us lick the envelope we should be fine as far as the virus goes, I know that some of you may not have stamps so I totally understand if you can't participate, I think it is such a lovely idea and we all need something to cheer us up right now, so if you are up for it just comment below. I am happy for make more than one card if we have odd numbers.
Today's Card was made using a Clarity Paper pad (Indian Summer), it has some beautiful designs that all look like painted background effects.
I matted the piece of paper on to some Night of Navy and white card to create the base of the card, I then die cut the free die that came with last months Die Cutting Essential's magazine, the die was designed by Paula Pascal, her design name is 'Bright Rosa'. I cut the die once and then extended it by replacing the die into the paper and recutting so that it fit the front of my card.
The sentiment was die cut using an 'Intricut' die that I bought for half price in Hobbycraft some time ago. I mounted the die cut onto white card to make it stand out from the background.
Quite a simple card but quite effective at the same time, I hope that you like it.
We had another quiet day yesterday, Paul was fixing the roof of the greenhouse and glass potting shed so that he can get in and sow some vegetable seeds, which kept him busy for most of the afternoon, he also walked Harley as we are looking after him while Matt avoids our germs by staying with his girlfriend, which is a good idea.
I spent some time in the craft room, lost about 2 hours to pinterest though!
Hopefully Monday will be a more productive day!
I hope that you are all staying well and safe at home,
Lots of love and hugs to all of you,
