Good Morning my crafty friends,
Hope you are all well and big hugs to those that are not.
Are we all ready for the Big Man's visit?
I still need to get everything wrapped, so much for wrapping as I buy!!!!!!
There's a new challenge starting over at Moving Along With The Times with Team A
Hosting the challenge is The Boss Hazel who has chosen a colour inspired theme
I took this opportunity to make my first cross card.
I wanted something special for my dear Sister who has been with me every step of the way through my hospital visits/treatments. She even cleaned my house for me before my first treatment so that I did not have to worry if I was unwell.
I have used Heidi, a digi from Wee Stamps that I coloured with markers, chalks and a touch of glamour dust
The papers are from Raspberry Road, the pinky one has had distressed with TH's distress inks
All been matted onto kraft card and the triangle mats were punched with 'Diamond Swing' punch from Tonic
The flowers are a mixture of brought and handmade.
The small roses are brought, I coloured them with markers to match the image, the wire stem I left attached and wound it round a pokey tool to add a bit of interest to the foliage.
The larger rose is made using a circle of paper that I tore and rolled after colouring with a marker. The smaller flowers are a double layer of a punched flower with a viva pearl centre.
The leaves were cut out using a Tattered Lace Die from the foliage collection.
The insert had a verse printed onto it using Photoshop. The corners were rounded and tabs were cut out on the silhouette and attached using brads. A glamour dusted butterfly. vintage ribbon bow and a sentiment were added to finish off the design.
I really enjoyed making this card and my Sister loved it.
This challenge runs for 2 weeks so maybe you can make your entry with some new stash The Man in Red brings you!!!!!!!!
