Lady in Yellow

 It's been cold and wet lately, but the sun is shining so there are spots of warmth outside out of the wind. It's time for the latest challenge at 613 Avenue Create. An Anything Goes challenge blog with an Optional Twist. I've opted to create my card using the optional twist which is to Use Paper Piecing on your creation. Love this - just need to choose something that isn't too fiddly to achieve, lol.

Here is my card........

Recipe: SU Basic Black and Hello Honey cardstock and White cardstock from stash, Kanban stamps (added a little shoe on the inside as well). Sentiment from SU. DP from stash, a pretty yellow with a subtle white floral on it - it's actually a bit brighter than it shows here in the photo. Also the yellow cardstock is a bit too bright in the photo, has more of a mellow, warmer hue. I used stitched rectangle dies from Paper Rose and 3 different SU circle punches

My husband and I are going on a club motorcycle ride today (as long as it's not pouring down with rain) so just a quick reminder to go check out the challenge blog and to let you know we love seeing all the wonderful entries. So get your mojo into gear and come and join in the challenge.

If your popping in here on my blog, please leave a comment. Would love to get some feedback.

Heart shaped Easel card

 Hello, greetings from Adelaide...hope all is well in your part of the world. Things are difficult at times with Covid restrictions. We are lucky here in Sth. Australia. Very few cases and most of those are coming from returning residents from overseas, so we are relatively free to move around but still some restrictions on numbers and we have to make sure we sign in to shops and venues so they can use contact tracing if necessary. 

I'd better get on and talk about the new challenge that is starting at Simply Create Too this month. The theme is "Anything but Square or Rectangle" I've chosen to make a heart shaped Easel card. I started off making a black card base and then added red die cuts on top, except for one the top of the card base, so you can see the black when the card is open.

Here is my creation......

Recipe: SU black, red cardstock, White cardstock from stash, DP from stash, Stamps are from freebie set The Feathered Friends and a set by Artworks that I picked up years ago from a cheap shop. I've used SU circle and scalloped circle punches, Copic Markers, Memento Tuxedo black inkpad, pink pearls. double sided tape roller and foam dots.

Well, that's it from me. Love to see your creations, so pop in and check out all the DT inspiration and add an entry or two. 

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment if you have time. 

Hugs, Sandy, DT Simply Create Too Challenges
