Good day dear bloggers, are you managing to stay warm and safe during this wintery weather ? I do hope so.
Today's project is a 'just a note to say' card created in the clean and simple style I love so much. As I write, this one is winging it's way to a lovely crafting pal, along with a couple of fabric digi camera cases I've made for her. I'll share a pic of the cases once I know they've arrived safely.
I used the set of stamps by Dylusions which includes this fabulous birdie, the whole set is just so gorgeous and versatile, I love it and it has to be one of my favourites at the moment. I stamped this fine chap directly on to the base card and added a little colour using my Copics. Stamped the sentiment bottom right and the design was complete - perfick !
I hope my pal likes it when it arrives. I used the same set of stamps to create a 60th birthday card I needed to make, I'll be sharing that one with you next thursday as I used next week's theme for the Cute Card Thursday challenge for my design which will be my DT card for next week.
Challenge #86 over on the CAS-ual Fridays blog has the theme 'Long and Short', so as my card has a long side and a short side and has a long image (bird) and a short image (sentiment) I'm entering my card for their challenge - wish me luck !
I'm looking forward to a grand day out tomorrow at the Craft4Crafters show at Exeter Westpoint with three crafting pals, if any of you are planning to be there, let me know, it would be cool to meet any of my Readers/Followers. So tomorrow there is likely to be just new stash acquisition and very little actual crafting done I think ! Although I don't have much on my shopping/wish list at the moment - some inks, a couple of 12x12 storage boxes and I may be tempted into buying another set of Dylusions stamps perhaps - I'm sure once I get there I'll find all sorts of things I never knew I needed but just HAVE to have !
A short and sweet post from me today, I'm busy finishing off a knitting project for another pal which I'd like to get posted out in the next couple of days. I've also got a growing list of patchwork/quilting projects and another knitting project I've been asked to make for friends - no rest for the wicked I guess.
Take care and keep on crafting !
