We've had fires here in Sth. Australia today about 200 ks away and they still have them burning in other states too. I think Nth Territory is the only state that hasn't had any yet.
Our friends rang and said they weren't coming for tea because Doug wasn't well so we decided not to go either. So apart from going out to the clothes line once (hubby bought the clothes in) I haven't been anywhere today.
I did watch some you tube how to's and did a bit of blog commenting and made a couple of cards.
Here is one I made today, I think this could be used for several different occasions, Sympathy, thinking of you, Get Well and even birthday.
Front of card
Close up of flowers and lace
Inside of card
SU Kiwi Kiss cardstock folded at the top of card
White cardstock from stash
DP is from Kaisercraft 6x6 paper pad - Blae & Ivy. The one on the front is embossed and has a lovely textural feel to it. The inside paper is from the same pack. I chose not to ink distress the paper edges as I quite liked the stark whiteness
Image is a freebie from Shelly's images ( you can only get it if you join in the challenge)
Sentiment comes with the angel
Memento Black inkpad
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo
Flowers are from Prima
Pearls are from SU
Spellbinders Die - Foliage - the leaves that came with the flowers I thought were a bit too big for my card so I cut some using scraps of Kiwi Kiss cardstock and distressed the edges with SU Certainly Celery ink.
Lace is worked onto a net and I have a feeling this was a scrap piece given to me a while back from my Mum and was a scrap from my ex sister-in-law's wedding (not positive)
