Hello and thank you so much for visiting me! Sorry, again, that I haven't been around for the last month or so - I had a birthday - 61, Yay! along with various medical appointments and other stuff so behind with crafting again! I owe friends thank you cards, birthday cards etc. which I am late with as well as comments on blogs and emails not to mention posts! Please forgive me! One day I will get on top of things - how long have I been saying that? One thing I have managed is to grow the dye out of my hair so I am my natural grey. I was supposed to be charting the process here and on Facebook but didn't manage that so here I am with my new look.
I am so happy that I took the plunge and went natural - I have been dyeing my hair red (from brown) since I was fifteen! Anyway, enough about me - here is the card I made for Darren for our anniversary last month:
I began with making the background with Distress Oxides, water and watercolour card - I was so pleased how it turned out - then I stamped the gorgeous image from So Suzy Stamps in Black Versafine with my Misti so I could stamp it several times to get a good silhouette impression. The sentiments were stamped from various sets on inked snippets of card, cut out, edged with a black alcohol marker then added to the panel. I edged the panel with Distress Oxides, glued it to a black card base then added Glossy Accents to the little heart.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Pixie's Snippets Playground - use Snippets.
That's Crafty - Animal Magic.
Time Out Challenges - Word Challenge - as below. My husband makes me very happy and I am grateful for that. The word 'happy' is also on the card.
Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge - Stamp it On.
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.
Thank you again for visiting me - have a wonderful week! Take care! Christine xxx
