Green or Gold…..

Hello. A new challenge has started at The Alphabet Challenge. Meg has chosen the theme of ‘Green or Gold’. Here is my card:

So – did I go for gold or what???!!!

Using the same embossing folder used previously, I embossed with some gold mirror card – and that shine and detail is stunning in real life…….

I didn’t want to hide too much of the design, so I just added the ‘Sweet Tulip’ die from Simon says Stamp – layered three times, and another sentiment strip.

The Design Team has some very varied makes as inspiration – so I hope you can come and join us with this challenge. xx

Thank you, Friend

Hello. I am managing to spend a little time sitting ‘normally’ now so have been able to so some crafting. My foot is recovering nicely, but I still have to be careful how I walk – it’s a very funny sight, I can tell you. Think penguin crossed with a crab……….

One of the cards I was able to make before my surgery was this card for the new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz:

The theme chosen by Shell is to ‘get inky’, so I played with my Distress inks and oxides, created some ink smooshing backgrounds, then die cut these leaves and flowers from a Sizzix die set.

The background is a 3D embossing folder – just on white card stock – to add some subtle interest.

The sentiment is a label sticker from Tim Holtz. In hindsight – I maybe should have put it onto a piece of card instead of sticking it directly down onto the textured background – but there we are………

I hope you can come and join us. This is the first ever challenge hosted by Shell (Bower) – so lets give her lots of choices for the top picks…….!
