Where is this week going to, Wednesday already... mind you gotta love these 4 day weeks, but I'm keeping it all crossed I don't end up having to do 5 days hours in 4 days again like last week :-D I've started well, and left on time yesterday, can I do the same again today? :-D
Slowly but surely my mojo is coming back, and i am pushing myself out of my comfort zone - today's card is no exception as I am still tinkering with this altered stuff!
Actually I'm kicking myself as I type this because now I look at the pics I've just realised that some of the pins my lovely blogging buddy Lee sent me would have looked just amazing on this card, but I am struggling to use them or the flowers as they are just too gorgeous and I'm still in the look and stroke stage with them :-D Seriously, if you haven't checked out Lee's work - go have a sneeky peek at her blog - I just love how she writes and her work is amazing!!
Right, back to the present! Today's card is for this weeks Scrapbook Sisters Challenge which is a nice and easy one as it's an Anything Goes week
I decided to get busy with the distress inks and some assorted Crafty Individuals Stamps, and I think an Indigo Blu one too, and one which I have no idea where it came from - think it was a freebie from a craft show!!. Please don't ask me what the colours are, but I think there is Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet and Stormy Sky lurking in there! Lots of masking going on here, whilst I am always thinking this style is not the best for me, I have to say I do like making these cards - you feel really crafty and creative! The die cut is a Memory Box one, to which I have added some bling. I tried to do a paper border to go round the round stamped image, but it didn't look right, so I went with some lace from my stash, which I think fits the overall theme.
I've stamped a few of these stamps up with the intention of decorating some of those mini spice jars you get from Ikea - if they look OK when I get round to doing them then I'll post them, if not, you'll never hear me mention them again!
Please can I enter my card into these challenges
