Hope you are all well and had a lovely weekend. We actually managed to sit in the sun a little bit yesterday!!!
I made a couple of easel cards this weekend for upcoming family birthdays and so I thought I'd show you the one I made with a gorgeous vintage image today. This isn't a colour combo I use very often as I don't use that much lemon, but I like how it works with the brown.
I used a Sizzix Bigz die for the swirls and some lace and bows from my stash. The paper is by Papermania and the roses were bought from Tab when she was running her online store. I don't make that many easel cards really and it's probably because I'm quite lazy and can't be bothered with the extra folding and cutting, lol..... so I made a dozen or so easel card blanks this weekend ready..... no excuses now!!
I'm entering the following challenges with my easel card:
Well as the school hols draw to a close my mind is on shopping for uniform, so it looks like that's where we'll be headed this afternoon. As a sweetener to the kids I've promised that if we get the shopping out of the way first, I'll take them to our local museum for a treat afterwards. They love going there as it houses an original spitfire plane designed by Reginald Mitchell, who was actually born just up the road from where we live! And at the moment the museum is lucky enough to be exhibiting a huge gold hoard which was discovered very recently in Staffordshire..... I believe the gold is very old and something of an amazing discovery, so I'm looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about!
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!!
