Sorry I've been awol, not felt much like making cards this week and my mojo has gone walkabout big time!! It's taken me a couple of days to come up with this one and the more I fiddle and try to improve it the worse it's getting so I'm going to leave well alone now and hope I find that missing mojo soon!!
The card is for Cute Card Thursday challenge which is Snow & Snowflakes. I think this Whiff of Joy Herb in love image is just so cute and wanted to use the snowflake that I have crocheted.
I have tried several patterns and not been happy with any of them so combined a few patterns to come up with this one which is small enough to use on cards (now I've got to try and work out how I did it to write instructions for those that want them, so bear with me till I get them done.)
I coloured Herb in love with distress inks and H2O's, with Sakura Stardust pens on the swirls on the couple. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy Winter Love set which I stamped, cut into a rectangle and punched two little half circles in the centre of each short side to look like a ticket. I love the Autumn Leaves Ticketed but cannot justify the price so keep on window shopping lol.
Papers are Daisy D's Snowflakes Paisley,
Crochet snowflake is one I made earlier lol
Snowflakes are punched with Martha Stewart and Carl punches
Charms and brads from stash.
I received this award from the lovely Rach, Sandra, Scotspanda Camilla and Michele - thanks so much sweeties, I appreciate the honour!!
This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY- nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement . Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to 8 bloggers who may then pass it on. I've seen this award do the rounds yesterday, so if you've already received this then your extra special :).
So, now I'm passing it on to Terrie, Kim, Natalie, Nikki, Chris, Kim, Catherine Suze and Kathy - these ladies are amazing crafters and inspire me no end.
