Pretty So Saffron Card


Good Morning Ladies, 

This week is speeding by, how is it possible that it's Friday tomorrow?!!  I know Janet & Sonia will have felt the week whizz by, you always do when you are on holiday.  I hope you are both enjoying the last couple of days of your trip, have a safe journey home.  I am looking forward to seeing Sue today, we are continuing are trials of finding somewhere nice for lunch, I will update you on our success!! 

Today's card is a quick and simple card but I love how it turned out. It helps that it is made using one of my all time favourite SU colours 'So Saffron', I die cut a circle out of a piece of card and used that as a mask to ink through, I changed out the card stock mask for a thinner scrap paper mask made with the same die, so that I could add some script stamping to my circle, had I tried stamping through the card mask I would have missed the edges of the circle as the thicker card would have created a raised edge. I added the 'Woodware Seeds of Change' stamped image, then added a some birds flying off into the distance and one of my favourite sentiments, its a HoneyDoo sentiment from a few years back. I layered the card onto a 6 1/2  X 6 1/2 inch card base. I added a few sequins in matching soft yellow to add a little sparkle.

I hope that you all have a fabulous Thursday,  

Love an hugs to all,

Sandra                                                                                xxxxxx

  4. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. What a gorgeous card today. I love every bit of it but especially that beautiful stamp. Thank you for a lovely day out yesterday and for my lunch which was lovely πŸ₯³Just a shame that some of the food, including the chocolate fountain is only available in the evenings but definitely one of our better meals out thank goodness πŸ˜† I hope you’re not feeling too bad today. The walk around the garden centre was further than we both realised until it was too late wasn’t it! I hope your new bird feeder does the trick though. It was a great day my lovely xx
    I hope you are all having a good day. Love snd hugs to you all. Take care xx
