Keep the Faith
Hello Everyone!! I can't believe how long it's been since my last post - as my friend Julie would say - I've been running around with my hair on fire for the last couple of weeks!! I've just finished a magazine feature - you'll see that in December, but that's all I can tell you right now. :) My boys are preparing for the cricket season (the sport, not the insect!), my eldest has tried out for Representative cricket, I'm helping with the running of the cricket club, my daughter has performed in two concerts, I spent all Saturday airbrushing tattoos for a school fete and then of course there is work and never ending housework, cooking and groceries!! I'm exhausted! So today (my day off work), I had the joy to sit down and happily colour and create a card! YAY!!!
Today I've used Happy Crabapple by Power Poppy (ooooh.....can I insert here that the latest issue of Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft has a Power Poppy card by my talented MUM on the cover!!! WOOHOO!! Way to go Mum!!). Now, where was I?? Oh yes, I stamped the Happy Crabapple image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (YG21, YG23, YG25, YG95, E81, E84, E87, RV000, RV52, RV55, R00, R11, R12, B0000, B000, B00). I've cut this into a square, trimmed two of the corners and matted with pink card. I've made the other panel out of Soft Sky, punching the bottom with a Fiskars border punch and topped with Apple Blossom Tilda DP and attached a piece of blue ribbon around it. I've attached both these panels to the front of a folded square of Baked Brown Sugar card. The sentiment was stamped and cut out with an oval punch and I've added a little blue copic around the edge and then accented with a couple of buttons.
