Yes, it's that time of the day when, after crafting and making some loveliness at my desk, I eventually get around to writing the blog and actually posting some pics of my makes.
I had to go to the GPs first thing this morning for some blood tests and then straight home to wait in for a new bed delivery - which, I've just found out, won't be coming until tomorrow morning. Just as well I had no other errands to run today or it would have been a wasted day. I remember having things like this happen when I used to work and had to take a day off to wait for a delivery which didn't come - sooooo frustrating. Nowadays, deliveries are simpler when there's no job to rush off to!
..........Today has been all about Clean And Simple. And the two cards I've made (yes, TWO), reflect this very well!,
This first card I made is for the challenges at :
Quirky Crafts Challenge blog - challenge #2 - Through the Quirky Window! The idea is to make a card with an aperture and place something within the aperture as a focal point.
Melonheadz Friends - CAS challenge
Items used :
Neenah smooth white card
Tim Holtz ragged lines embossing folder
Spellbinders nestabilities circle die
Tattered Lace Starlight Square die
Spellbinders Poppy Patch die
Silver Mirri card
Tsukineko Brilliance Starlight silver ink
It wasn't an easy card to make even though it has fewer elements to it than others I've made because it had to be precise! If the cuts weren't sharp or clean, then the CAS effect just wouldn't work.
Here's the finished article!!!
I will be posting another item shortly and probably several more after that as I've been oh such a busy girl!!!!
