Good Luck Thank You

Hello everyone.

Todays card is for a friend who will be leaving our Spinning group to pastures new in New Zealand. I was following a card sketch but didn’t follow it to the letter but you will see what I mean once I show you both the card and the sketch.

And now for the sketch that started this cardmaking exercise – Sketch Saturday #543

As you can see the outcome of the card was a little different to the sketch but not a lot that I hope it is still suitable for the challenge.

The difference came about because of the Butterfly Hat digital image by Julie Spiri which I had printed and coloured with my Faber-Castell Polychromos. So I adjusted the smaller rectangle to suit the layout. The stars I turned into squares to fit around the 2 sentiment stamps. I kept the rest of the card simple because I wanted the image to be the main focus.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project today. And as always before you go I would like to leave you with this thought for the day

I have struggled with this over the past couple of years due to a few circumstances. But I can now see a way through some of it and so it is a start of recovery. So all I can say is Don’t let the world determine who you should be!

HAVE A HAPPY CRAFTY KIND OF DAY,

Falling Leaves

Hello Everyone,
Another card inspired by two card challenges again, this is the 2nd card  I have to go into both of these challenges. I just loved the challenge idea so much and it helps me to build up my made card stash.

So the challenges are

And this is the outcome for the combination of these 2 challenges

The leaf stamp set is an older one from Bo Bunny but it’s one of my favorite ones. So I used some painters tape and scrap paper to mask off an area.

I chose to use 3 Distress Inks to achieve the Teal strip. Leaving the painters tape in place I stamped the leaves using both a Green and Red ink on each of the leaves. I was really pleased with how this turned out I think I may make a couple more using this combination.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation. And now I would like to leave you with a thought before you leave:

I am definitely not the same I was at the beginning of this year, month, week or even day. It’s just learning to leave with each of the changes that is hard.

Have a Happy Crafty Fun kind of (changing) Day
