What a damp and miserable Sunday morning we have today. No surprise there then I s'pose. A day for venturing into my Craft Room I think seeing as I am feeling a little better. Don't try and skype me as I may just stay in my PJs and not bother to get dressed!
Before I venture in I thought I would share a card with you that I made for my friend Michelle in work recently. She has moved to our other office, which is much closer to her home and so is now walkable instead of unreliable busable!
I set myself a challenge for this card, in that everything had to come out of my Snippets tin/box. The only piece that didn't was the background book page which came out of the flower book you may have seen me use before. It was bought for £1 and I have used it a fair bit since I bought it.
The brown piece of cardstock was out of my Snippets box and was originally in my spray box so I have no idea what colours were used on that! I ran it through my TH embossing folder and then brushed with purple Treasure Gold wax. The Butterflies were in the Tin. The red butterfly is from a Sizzix die that I bought for my friend for Christmas. Wish I hadn't!!!!
The orange flourish (cut a while ago from a Sizzix die was run through another embossing folder before being placed on the card. The flower I made ages ago using TH die for another project but didn't use it and I added the turquoise piece which I had used a tiny piece of and TH paper lace before finishing it all off with some lilac glimmery spots. The sentiment is an Artistic Outpost one, which I was testing out on a piece of cardstock before I used it on a project! Seemed a shame to bin it! It is much clearer IRL.
Right then. I am off to make a cuppa to take into my Craft Room. Before I go I shall take this card to the Playground as it is positively brimming with Snippets. If you are going to the Playground it seems Wellies and Souwesters are the order for the day.
Before I go, I just want to give a shout out to my latest follower Susie! Her comment made me giggle after she declared she was "sooo thankful for Tena ladies" on a comment the other day. Guess I won't be sitting in her chair in the classroom!
