A quick hello ....

... Good morning everyone!  Only a week to go!!!  I've been quite busy this week with various preparations and also snow shovelling!  I managed to get into my craft room yesterday evening and made a card for my stash. 

Hello - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: The Craft's Meow - Lovely Labels 14, Circle It; Waltzingmouse - Faux Fun
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar, Summer Starfruit, Coastal Cabana
Accessories: SU Card - Summer Starfruit, Strawberry Slush

I really like the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch - CTS57, but I've been a bit stumped.  However, when I saw the pretty colours at Colour Q - cQc220 this week, I decided to make some flowers.  And the cue word at CASology - CAS75, "KNIT", caused me some concern until I remembered my Faux Fun borders from Waltzingmouse.


I stamped the knitted border onto scrap card and then fussy cut along the stitch line and adhered it to the card.  I used my new stamps from The Craft's Meow to make the flowers - the leaves were made by cutting the butterfly into pieces!  I stamped the flowers onto white and coloured card and layered them for depth, and adhered them to the card with dimensional gel.  I finished the front with a simple sentiment.  The inside has a mat of Summer Starfruit and a few flowers stamped - with lots of white space for me to write a message.

I've just realised that I have CASEd Tracey's card too!  Great minds and all that!  That's all for now.  I'm off to get some ironing done.  See you soon.
