I’m always happy to join in a new challenge and so I was taken with The Library Challenge today. I really liked the following inspiration photo/sketch:
My SIL Judy joined in crafting with me from afar.
I have a good collection of floral paper which I love to rumage through. I found my Designer Paper from Basic Grey – this one called Curio. It had both the blooms, some faux lace and some writing on it so I let the paper do a lot of the work. I stamped a Hero Arts Sentiment onto some vellum. I added on another strip of die cut vellum and then glued a thin bit of real lace atop this. Next I painted a bit of glue onto the rose and added some Fairy Dust glitter on the edges of petals. Lastly I added a black base behind my card and bumped it all up with foam tape.
So far this year we have escaped much of the cold temperatures and snow which has hit everywhere else so I have no reason to squeek about it being below freezing with a biting wind today. I was not going to let this stop me from going out for a walk though. I dug out snowpants and my warmest of warm layers and mummyed myself up and topped it all off with a fluffy soft grey sequined scarft. I imagine I looked quite the sight as I was going about. I was nice and toasty though and thats whats important. I took this photo at the lake’s edge. I love how deep blue the water gets in winter. Do YOU still get out in the cold for walks?
I also would like to give a Thank You shoult out to Pop Card Press for sending me this LOVE-ly card I won through a contest! I will save it and savour it on my mantle for a while and then send it to someone to brighten up their day. I enjoyed seeing all their beautiful cards online!
