I hope your weekend is going well.....we are all chillaxing here as the effort of a week at school and work has left us all exhausted! I don't think the boys have got out of their pjs :)
That has left me a bit of time to get crafty so I can't complain.
In particular, I have wanted to play along with Taheerah's Cure for the Monday Blues for ages and have never made the deadline. Finally....here is my card:
I loved the soft pastel colours and sprinkles from the inspiration photo and decided to play with my new WPlus9 sparkle and shine die.
I die cut two rectangles from Lawn Fawn in patterned paper and combined with a cute little envelope from Lil Inkers in to which I put some pastel sequins. The sentiment is stacked up for dimension and I added WoS to give extra sparkle. A few sequins are adhered outside the envelope on the card base to give the extra look of sprinkles. I don't often work with a pastel colour palette but like how this turned out.
I also decided to play along with Fusion this week - which I think is another first. It is their one year anniversary and I really loved the inspiration photo and all of the fab designs from the DT and their guests. I loved the combination of the pink and gold with the chalkboard:
The chalkboard panel is from a 6x6 paper pad called The Story of Us by Simple Stories. I cut that out and layered over some gold and pink patterned papers. Very simple - but I don't think I would ever have thought to use that panel on a card until I saw the Fusion challenge.
Finally, here is a card that I made for CASology where the cue card is date. I am terrible for forgetting dates, particularly birthdays and figured that this is a card I am likely to need to use this year:
Not too bad for a weekend's work?! I would love to hear what you think.
Thanks for stopping by,
