Hello My Friends
What a gloriously sunny, but cold, day we are enjoying here today. I have my window blind in my office pulled right back so I can enjoy the sun's warmth, though it makes it tricky trying to see my screen!
My Buddy in work left the firm last month to join another firm and so I wanted to make her a schpecial card, without any sentiments on there so she could keep out if she liked. Debbie is also very encouraging about my painting so I knew it would be a painting of sorts. Knowing she hadn't seen the Fuschia one I did for Miss I decided to creater another. So here it is.....
I first painted a recycled piece of chipboard, which are actually the backs of our chittie slips in work! with dark red paint and then using the SD technique I painted over with pva and then cream paint to get a crackle effect.
Then came the fun bit of painting the fuschias and leaves and inking and layering. I did manage to find a perfick piece of pink card in the Snippets box.
Now Debbie had told me that she wanted something "chickeney" on her leaving card as she loves the fun cards I making using my chicken stamps. So I added them to the inside....
I also stamped some on the handmade envelope, made using my We Are Memory Keepers envelope maker - love that tool to bits!
And I also stamped her favourite image on the wrapping paper of the small gift I gave to her!
I can report that Debbie was very pleased with the card and it is on her noticeboard in her new office, as well as the paper and envelope!
As this card included a Snippet I think I will run along to the Snippets Playground and hopefully have a game of hopscotch and maybe even have some mulled wine!
Thanks for calling by. I hope to catch up with you later today after the ironing session which is mahoosive!
