Good Morning Ladies,
I was tempted to say 'Monday' morning then, Bank Holidays always catch me out and I end up playing catch up all week. Is it just me? The house will be very quiet later this week as the girls work opens after the weekend so they will be in preparing, so when Paul goes into the office it's going to feel very odd, I'm not sure I'm looking forward to it, I have been spoilt this past year, as there has been someone home everyday, I think it will be music on and getting busy crafting!
Today's card was the result of a messy craft session, I was having a play while Paul and the girls watched the Season finale of their tv show. I bought the Honeydoo Background die after watching Amanda use it on TV last week (I ordered from Honeydoo direct though). For this card I die cut the background in light green glitter card and cut another in 300gsm card and adhered them together, I placed it over a background I made by used shades of purple Distress Oxides which I then spritzed and took more colour away with a doily mask. I cut a frame to cover the edges of the die cut background for this I used Phil Martin Rectangle dies.
To embellish the card I stamped Honeydoo Carnation Flowers, stamping them onto parchment with Versamark and adding white Embossing powder and heat setting, I used the matching dies to cut the carnations out, I added Wilted Violet to tha back of the parchment and shaped them, I used some Sparkles in the centres and coloured them with alcohol markers. The fun foliage is an Anna Marie Designs die.
I haven’t decided on a sentiment yet, so you will have to imagine one.
I hope that you all stay wrapped up warm as we are in for a chilly week ahead, temperatures staying around freezing with the wind chill.
Sending love and hugs to all of you,
