One for four .....

...  Hi!  Weather's a wonderful thing - you think you're prepared, but it changes by the minute!  We've had gorgeous sunshine, some rain and thick snow - all in a few hours!  Mind, it hasn't got above freezing at all!  We went to the shops this morning and I had a quick visit to Archivers - such a lovely place to visit - I didn't come out with much - honest :)

I've been playing in my craft room since getting home and I've made a very CAS card for four challenges:


Stamps: PTI - Scattered Showers
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: SU Card - Tempting Turquoise; White Lustre and Black card from stash





This is about as clean and simple as it gets!  I cut black and turquoise mats for the front and on the white layer I stamped the sentiment in turquoise.  I stamped the clouds (up in the air!) onto a scrap of white card using the second impression to give the idea of storm clouds, and then cut them out and adhered them to the card with dimensional tape.

The sentiment on the front suggests that you might be a bit in the dumps or feeling down, so for the inside I stamped the sun (again second impression) and a greeting.  I layered the white onto more turquoise card.

I lost yesterday to a day of editing holiday photos.  I took lots of photos when we went to Chicago and California last year, but hadn't got around to editing any of them.  So I spent most of the day going through them and have uploaded the images to my Flickr account if you want to see them.  The next job will be to make some scrapbooks of our trips.

That's all for now.  Jonathan is busy working on his photos and Kathryn is sorting our her Social Studies homework and I'm off back to my craft room to make a few birthday cards. 

Be safe!  See you soon.

This is terrific Deb! Such beautiful tranquil colours and subject. I have missed a few of your posts, unfortunately, so I will summarise here - LOVE the red phone box, we had them in Australia also but sadly no more. Your WMS Christmas card is lovely too (need that stamp set).

Love the white., black & turquoise. This kind of creation is just beyond me: I sat & laughed for it's so apt for our Brecon weather too. But, Spring is a-springing.
