Wow 18 October and counting? Whose counting? Me for one, how quick has the year gone, on the down hill run now to Christmas.
Thinking of Christmas, when I wish upon a Star, makes no difference who you are……………now a bit of a song happening here, which didn’t happen when I went to make my card. If your landed here you have most likely come from super talented and famous Louise Sharp who I am sure has wowed you with her creation.
Now I didn’t even come close to a star or for that matter and Christmas card, however I did at least make it into a gorgeous card for my class on Friday morning. Now that in itself is a great think.
As we are told colouring in is good for us and bearing that in mind I have been trying to up my skills and help my ladies relax somewhat by doing a colouring class and what better than being able to turn it into a card that you can send to someone.
Maybe 18 months ago I had bought the Brair Rose stamp to use, and up until today hadn’t even inked it up. How bad is that. I chose to use, Cherry Cobbler, Mint Maccaroon and Mossy Meadow as my three colours. They turned out clean and fresh and by not being too heavy-handed with the cherry cobbler on the rose I was able to make them a lovely soft shade of soft cherry cobbler.
For the greeting the Petite Pairs fits beautifully in the bottom right and corner.
Next your off to see what another of our talented team has made for you. Teneale Williams
Here we go it’s a long weekend and John’s birthday so its been a busy day stamping on Saturday. If your come from another blog your most likely arrived here from the super talented Louise and I know that she will have blown you away with what she has created. If your backed up your most likely come from another super talented person and that’s Teneale. Wow I feel rather special today to have two talented artists around me. Maybe it might rub off on me.
Enough ideal chatter, lets look at this sketch and see what we should do with it. I for one rather liked it and once I have the colours I took off like a rocket.
I choose to use the definitely Dahlia stamp set as I thought its a nice large stamp and if it was stamped down then it could be sliced in two. Then looked for a sentiment that would go with it, come look at what I have done.
I have two sisters and I wanted them to both know that I love them, as we get older we don’t often think to tell people that we care. I choose to use the Words of Truth to tell them to Remember that I love them.
On the front I embossed the word “Remember” and on the inside I have put the words “I love you”. Such a small sentence but for me a very important one, we don’t see each other lots as life is hectic and taken up with my off springs.
Now its time to nick over and see what Teneale has in store for you. Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to leave a comment or two. Actually I am not begging one,s fine.
