I'm sorry you haven't heard of me this week! I had a hard week I can say, and I didn't have the strength or the mental energy to create something. I was a bit under the weather for this! But weekend has come, and at least i can put away the withdrawal symptoms! lol
This week it is Donna's turn to set the challenge at CCC Blog, and she provided us with a lovely sketch. This week I received LOVELY .. really lovely HM images from my friend Susan, and couldn't wait to use one of them! I had a huge smile on my face for the rest of the week! :) I opted to turn the sketch sideways, because I felt it worked more for me.
A heavily layered card, but it turned out so cute, and I love this style :) lots of dots and holes! ;) I don't know about you, but I had to use Pebeo paint to do the white dots. I tried a white gel pen, but doesn't write well. It disappoints me every time I try to use it. Have to add one on my wishlist I think!
Ingredients: House mouse image Black and Pink cardstock Rayher Scrapbooking Paper Circle and scalloped circle nesties Silk flowers White Pebeo white paint Black pen Pink glitter pen Plaid buttons Ribbon Self adhesive gems on the buttons Piercing tool Sentiment is computer Generated
I hope that you try out this lovely sketch, I know I'm tempting you! We'd love to see what you come up with! It's fun!
Hope you have a lovely week, and may you have that special friend who warms your heart :) Thanks for looking God Bless you Rosette xx
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!
