I decided I’d like to pick a new challenge today, its good to “shake things up” now and then. I will still join in my regular ones when I’m able but I was driving my mind crazy with other crafting ideas so I just took a break to create a card. I find it relaxing, do YOU?
I decided I’d like to try my friend Kristin CB’s Sweet as Cherry Pie Digital Kit to make my card. I brought the elements into my Silhouette Software, traced and cut on my Cameo. This photo does not near show how pretty this card is - my photo is rather on the green or yellow side (its so bluh outside I took it indoors … in a hurry, never a good idea)
I did not print Kristin’s digital papers but matched some I already had in my scrap bin. I did highlight some items with my pearlescent paints and added the red stickles to the cupcake and the gem to top it off.
Perhaps YOU might visit Created With Love challenge seeing it’s new - I see they have an upcoming Blog Hop coming up!
And now, I’ll share a quote I like about friendship and a few photos I took this past Sunday on a walk with my Mr - while the weather was still nice.
Oh the comfort,
the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person;
having neither to weigh thoughts
nor to measure words
but to pour them out, just as it is,
chaff and grain together,
knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
keeping what is worth keeping,
with the breath of kindness,
blow the rest away.
~ George Eliot
Sunlight stripes in golden hues through the peach trees
Grapevines backlit by the Autumn Sun
Soft, fuzzy seeds invite my cheek!
Fuzzy mullien decorated with bright leaves
Brilliant grapevines festoon the now defunct Osoyoos irrigation canal.
