Sandie always makes the most gorgeous clean and simple cards, so I thought I'd make a CAS birthday card for her. I used a few challenges to make the card. The colours are from this week's Colour Throwdown - CTD#292 and the layout is from CAS(E) this Sketch - CTS#76. I didn't get chance to make a card for Addicted to Stamps and More! - ASM#95 earlier this week, but I realise that in making this card, I've taken inspiration from the flowers and colours. I stamped the flower spray in grey, coloured it with Copics and added some sparkle to the flowers with my new Wink of Stella pen and then I fussy cut it out. I cut a panel of white card and drew silver borders on three sides, then adhered it directly to the card. I stamped the birthday sentiment in black and finished the front with a few sequins. On the inside I cut a mat layer of pink design paper and on the white panel stamped some more flowers and coloured them with Copics.
Not quite sure when Sandie will get this card, but it is on the way!!
I've been busy this week spending time with Mum, which is why I've not been around much. It was such a lovely Mother's Day weekend for us both. On Sunday the weather was fabulous and we went out to a local flower and flea market - such fun, this was followed by lunch out and then a lovely drive round the area. Monday was another day of indulgence with us both having a massage - so relaxing. We managed to get home before all the bad weather arrived. Monday afternoon the tornado warning sirens went off - we sheltered in the basement, but fortunately nothing happened in our area. Sadly the weather has been awful for most of the week, but I think we've gotten off lightly compared to some.
Before I go, I must share some fab news about my wonderful husband. Last night Jonathan attended a presentation event for Canvas Pontiac. We had all submitted photographs to the competition. and we found out last week that Jonathan had had one of his photos selected to be made into a large canvas and hung on the walls in Pontiac. As part of our trip on Sunday we drove up to Pontiac to see the large canvas print of Jonathan's photo. Here's a photo of Jonathan's image on the wall.
I'm so proud of Jonathan. It's a super photo, so full of life and has a great position on the wall by Lafayette Market!
I'll be back soon - taking a bit of a break while Mum is here on holiday! See you soon.
