The sun is now drifting away very fast and soon it will be as cold as ice....
Using the colours Blue & white Only . Show us how cold your projects can feel this week.
This week was a hard one, I was a bit tired and although my mojo didn't have a holiday, my spirits regarding crafting did - I could'nt find any energy to make this card.. today I promised myself that I HAD to make it!!
This week Tilda's Challenge Blog asked us to use blue and white, and the card had to be related to "Cold". And what's more cold than Snow? Another Christmas related card, but I like it :)
As usual the Scan doesn't make justice to the real feel of the card, but here it is! I used: White, Dark blue and a small piece of silver cardstock DCWV Text Prints Matt Stack DP from stash Tilda Image Nestabilities and Big Shot Sizzix Stars and swirls embossing folder Snowflake designed Vellum White and light blue organza ribbon Pearl Brad Fiskars Texture Plate (to hand emboss the heap of snow Tilda is sitting on) Rayher Felt Snowflakes Pastel Chalks and blue and white inkpads (for inking edges and making a "snowy" feel around the base layers)
It took me quite a long time to finish it, but I'm happy with the result. I wish to find some more time for another challenge or two.. who knows, maybe tomorrow? We''ll see! Thanks for visiting dear friend, and may the Blessing of God fill your heart.
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
