Welcome to my corner of blogland, hope you have all enjoyed your weekend. We had sunshine for most part of today after a night of rain and a couple of early morning showers. Today being Sunday, found me sitting in the choir stalls at church, and enjoying the sermon our minister preached. A cup of tea afterwards and then home to pick up my craft gear and then out again to pick up my friend Jane and drive out to Shirley's to make 3 of her delightful cards. I dropped Jane home and thought I had better pop into the shop and pick up something to cook for tea as I forgot to take something out of the freezer (LOL, a bad habit of mine!)
Then a bit of tv while fiddling around with my stamps.
Today's card was made to enter the challenge at Crafting When We Can
If you are unsure how the bingo card works, let me explain... You need to use at least 3 items off the bingo card below, however these need to be in a line either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. For example you could use flower, distressing and 2 images which takes it horizontally in the middle row. If you are confused please comment or email for further advice.
Here is the bingo card.
I chose the middle 3 going down, a Happy Sentiment, Distressing and Pearls.
So this is what I came up with,
The base card is SU Not Quite Navy, a pale tan coloured card from stash, I distressed it and sponged the edges with blue ink, the DP is from Londonerry paper stack and I distressed this also and sponged with SU Purely Pomegranite. The diecut is a Nellie Snellen which you can fold back the cuts to make a pattern, but I liked it unfolded. The sentiment is inked in SU Choc Chip and comes from TPC Studio - Playful Expressions. I stamped it again and cut the flower out and pieced it over the original to give it a bit of depth.
Thanks for popping in to see what I've been up to today.
Take care,
