Hi all. And…
Hooray – the weekend is officially here! This week feels like it’s been D-R-A-G-G-I-N-G!
Today I’ve a card to get the weekend off to a bright start (even if it has been rather rainy again today, I think the forecast is good for the next couple of days – phew!)
I made this one for the fab My Mind’s Eye challenge #25 to make a card based on this sketch…
… and based on the theme of ‘celebration’.
Here’s my card – at least it stopped raining long enough for me to grab a pic:
… It’s bright and cheery – in true celebratory spirit 😉
I’m sending it to a friend who has been having a bit of a rough time lately, but she’s had some good news this week. A brighter day to turn a corner. Worth celebrating, no?!
I think celebrations shouldn’t always be about special occasions like birthdays or weddings – sometimes it’s the small stuff is really worth celebrating too.
I’m sure my dear friend will think so with this cute card.
The patterned papers are all MME ‘Stella & Rose’ from the Mabel and Hazel 6x6pads. Still can’t get enough of their deliciousness. (Mind you, the new releases from CHA look deee-vine! Those Six by Six pads…. Please, someone get me a chair, I’m swooning! Can’t wait to get my paws on them!)
I diecut the apertures (Nesties ‘Labels 1’) in the white panel and popped it up on foam pads to look through the windows to the papers behind.
The panel is embossed with ‘Garden Swirl‘ by Craft Concepts and inked with my Distress Inks ‘Tea Dye’ and ‘Peeled Paint’. The diecut butterflies, using MFT Die-namics, are cut from corrugated card and glammed up with MME Treasures pearls from ‘Bloom & Grow’. The glitter rub-on is also from the ‘Bloom & Grow‘ collection. (I think this one was an exclusive, UK-only release. Weren’t we lucky with this one?!)
That’s all for now then crafty pals. Looking forward to some good crafting fun over the weekend. Hope you fit some in too,
See you soon, Rx
