Good morning everyone. Hopefully there is dryness and sunshine wherever you are, Summer's on its way after all (well, I heard a rumour).
Thank you for your kind comments on Megan's card. I won't know if the little lady was pleased with the card and pressie until Friday.
Also, thank you for the congratulations on being on the HOC DT. I'm really looking forward to it so can't wait to see what you come up with Donna.
A few messages for our sponsors. . . . . . .
Jackie, you spoil sport. A nice yellow waterproof blankie would have suited nicely.
Elaine, where are you off to then? Going south for the Winter? Safe and sunny travels chuck.
Jacquie, thanks but I'm more common than you think hahaha!
Lesley, sorry I didn't mention it in my post. The alphabet die is an X-Cut one from Docrafts.
Sandy, don't get using up all Mr Sandy's shaving foam! I don't want to be responsible for a domestic situation.
Shirley, there's no such thing as old, you have just seen more sunrises.
Now, today's card was made using another of my craft shop bargains. As well as the distress re-inkers, I got a pack of this Papermania Confetti Vellum (50p for 20 sheets can you believe). I sent a couple of sheets to Christine with her paddle prize, so look forward to seeing what she comes up with.
I started with a 5x7 cream card base. I topped this with a slightly smaller pink card layer. I then popped a piece of the vellum atop the pink layer. Out of cream card, I cut the SB Tapestry die but rather than use it in its entirety, I snipped into it to create the above shape. I could see that this would not be a one trick pony die, which is why I fell in love with it.
I foam padded it to the card and added a SB Heartfelt Creations Sunkissed Fleur flower, cut from vellum, to the centre.
A few of John's pearls and a bit of pink bling in the corners was going to complete the look but I then decided to stamp a small "Thank you." in pink in the corner. I blotted it to make it paler to match the vellum and so it blended in more.
Here's a shot of the vellum on its own. . . . . . .
It is pretty.
Well, that'll be me for now. Have a fantabulous day and be good. See you soon, same duck time, same duck channel, but without my pants over my trousers (that's Fraday nights hahaha!)
