Good Morning Ladies,
What a change in the weather today, we had rain all night and most of the day, the garden needed to though, the brassicas look so much better for it (listen to me sounding like a gardener), I am proper impressed with out Brussel Sprout plants though, you can see the sprouts forming already!
I wasn't sure if it was the weather or because I was feeling under the weather but in the morning I was so hot, my heart was just permanently in a superfast rhythm which is why I just had to lie down for most of the morning, I managed to get up at around lunch time and potter in my craft room for most of the afternoon, doing little things that don't really show but definitely needed doing, like sorting through all of my dies and putting them in sets or grouped in categories.
My desk is much clearer and looking around I can see what a difference taking time to organise things is making. I just have to Keep it tidy now!
Today's card is an oldy but works perfectly for this weeks challenge, using categories:
Sentiment/More than 2 layers/Embossing
Todays card is a handmade background using Honey Doo 'Swirl Background' stamp, stamped in Versamark and I then added Honey Sparkle Embossing powder and heat set, I made sure it was all dry and then I went in with Distress Oxide inks...Picked Raspberry, Shaded Lilac & Squeezed Lemonade.
I added the same ink blend to a seperate piece of card and die cut my sentiment, adding it onto a white background. The 'My Friend' stamp comes with the die set. It's a Spellbinders set called 'Hello Expressions' that I bought from Christine over at Hope & Chances.
The good thing about a TicTacToe Challenge is that some many cards work with the categories, so even though this card is from Feb 19 it still works.
Fr. Richard was so lovely and made everything so simple, such a comfort.
I hope that you all have a lovely day today,
Love and hugs to all of you,
