Welcome again to my little piece of blogdom!! Hope you have been having a good day and found some time to devote to this very addictive world of cardmaking!
I started my day off enjoying my friend, Shirley's class where we made 3 lovely cards, playing with stamps, paper, pencils, copic markers and some embellishments. A fun morning with friends. I and two other friends had lunch together. One friend, Helen has been staying in Adelaide for the past 3 months visiting her mother and trying to help her sister as her Mum had a stroke and had to go into a nursing home. She and her husband will be travelling back to Queensland in two days so she met us at the little cafe where we had lunch and we caught up for the last time. She is actually an old school mate of my friend, Fran and I only met her 3 months ago but have really enjoyed getting to know her.
I went back to choir practice tonight after taking a leave of absence. We are doing some mixed music for an upcoming concert which includes a medley from Phantom of the Opera, one of my favourite musicals. It was a good practice.
Well, that meant a late start on today's card, but finally got the mojo going and here is what I came up with.
The basecard is SU Early Espresso. The two pieces of DP are from My Mind's Eye pack called "Complete Boy" The image I used is a digi from Just Inklined and was coloured with Copic Markers and fussy cut out. I used a ticket punch to cut out the white bit of the sentiment and then layered it onto a scrap of Early Espresso and trimmed. I also put a piece in the middle and stamped the sentiment from Kanban stamp set Retro Cars in SU Cherry Cobbler ink onto white card, trimmed and adhered in the middle. The inside has a layer of the striped DP and then a rectangle of Early Espresso, a piece of the dotty DP and another piece of Early Espresso and a piece of SU Crumb Cake.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
