Hiya, how's your week end so far? I'm pleased to say the rain has pretty much held off here in Sydney though it's been a bit overcast. Managed to get all the 'must do' jobs done and last night I sat and made a card for this weeks Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #18.
I know the clever card makers will read lots into Claire's sketch but to me it says Christmas Trees and I just happen to have a couple.......Nutcracker Sweet by WMS has a couple of great trees that I hadn't inked up yet so I had two out of three. Choosing card took some playing around but I finally decided on SU Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz.
Base card is GKD Pure Luxury heavyweight in pure white. The concord crush was embossed using QuicKutz diamonds and dots.
Using VersaMark ink I embossed a large snowflake onto some SU Whisper White card before stamping the larger tree in Pear Pizzazz. I've silver embossed around the edge of this panel before mounting it to some Pear Pizzazz card. Two smaller trees were stamped on another piece of WW card and cut out. These have both been popped up on foam tape the front one on a thicker foam to make it stand forward.
The sentiment is stamped in Concord Crush and cut using a Spellbinder scalloped circle die, with the top portion cut away. Some Pear Pizzazz cotton twill was stapled into a loop with the sentiment attached over the front with tape. To finish off I added the Kaisercraft gems to the sentiment and three Annabelle Stamps twinkling stars to the top of the trees.
This card is also entered into the Moxie Fab Jolly Holly Greetings Challenge.
Waltzingmouse have a blog hop on 17th October, I'm hoping to take part in this month..... The theme is Autumn so hope to get to work on that tomorrow. With Annabelle Stamps October release due to start on 15th it will be a busy week.
I've had a few Walshie enquiries........ he's doing really well, has an X-ray and seeing the Surgeon Monday for the final (we hope) visit. Still having Physio. and hoping that he might get the go ahead to start lifting some weights to work on the upper arm. The hand is coming along nicely, he has to see the specialist in a weeks time but he's back at work and managing the driving etc. so all good.
Till next time............
