Good morning friends and a very belated Happy New Year! It has taken me a while to get back into the swing of things since the Christmas break and I think the old mojo has been suffering from frostbite, lol!
I have enjoyed doing all things crafty this week and seem to be hooked on making easel cards now...... thought I'd share one of them with you today and I'm entering this week's ABC Challenge which is layering. I must say my mind is focused on making a few Spring and Summer cards just now because most of my family and friends celebrate their birthdays during the first half of the year, which is why I chose to use this particular Tilda image and the scrummy Basic Grey Wisteria papers.
I think the great thing for me about making easel cards is that it forces me to decorate more than just the front of a card. I know lots of you are dedicated to decorating the inside of your creations but I can never be bothered...... now at least I make the effort as it would look a bit daft it the bottom of the card was left blank!!! On the downside though, you do end up using more paper than you would perhaps have liked....... we all know how difficult it is to break into certain collections, let alone use multiple sheets, lol!
Whilst looking through my stash I came across some gorgeous Tim Holtz sentiment tickets which I haven't used in a while and thought these would look perfect on the card. Not sure who this one is destined for yet but you can bet it'll be someone special!
Right ho, I'm off ot make a start on my DT card for this week's Basic Grey Challenge which is due to be announced on Saturday...... don't forget to check the theme as it's another brilliant one!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
