Good afternoon everyone. Hope that you are all well and keeping warm and dry.
A huge G'day and welcome to Margaret from Oz who has kindly become a follower. Hope you enjoy yourself at the pond. Everyone is fabulously lovely, so enjoy your paddles with us. Also, welcome back to Ita. I hope that you're doing well now.
It's a lunchtime post as it's time for the February CAS and Classic & Elegant part of the House of Cards Challenge.
The inspiration for the challenge is this picture/colour palette. . . . . . .
and the above is my interpretation of this. Please pop along to the challenge here to see what my lovely DT colleagues have designed and, hopefully, you feel like joining in and entering the challenge.
The ingredients for my card are;
A5 white card base (300gsm Limetree Crafts card)
Frame cut from a piece of same white card, embossed with Kassies Brocade embossing folder
SB Tiger Lily die (cut 3 times)
Bundled Sage, Shabby Shutters and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks
White satin ribbon
Hobbycraft sentiment stamp
The frame is foam padded onto the base and the lilies arranged to look like a posy/bouquet.
Little did I know when I made this for the DT, that I would be sending it to someone so soon. I thought it was just right to send to my dear friend Margaret's husband last week. To be honest, it was just as well I had it as I would never have felt like making one from scratch under the circumstances.
I would have had to send a . . . . . . . . . shop bought one (sorry to use such language).
One thing it has taught me is to make a few of these to have ready for such occasions, much as we don't want them to happen, they do so its as well to be prepared in a card sense.
Thank you for the warm welcome back everyone. I couldn't wish for a nicer bunch to paddle with. Hopefully no more tragedies now, just happy days and Spring on the way. Rib ligaments still playing up but doing better following the advice from my charity shop colleague which was endorsed by the lovely Hazel (taking the NSAIDs regularly rather than now and again).
Hope this is the start of a wonderful week for you all.
