Hey everyone, have you had a nice weekend?
I had a fab day crafting in the attic yesterday …all day!
Keith getting this bike is the best thing ever because he’s spending so much time in the garage surrounded by his oily parts. He says “I’m sorry I’m neglecting you” and I say “oh it’s fine” …and really I want to jump up and down and go “yippee, more crafty time for me!!”
I’m super late with my post for Papertake Weekly (sorry dawny) but there is still plenty of time to enter
This week it’s a theme that suited me right down to the ground…
I always put lots of layers on my cards and this one is using the new papers and art pads from Lili of the Valley
I have to be honest I had my doubts about this Father Knows Best pad when I first saw it, the colours looked very dark. But, once I got playing with it I love it, the dark colours used with the lighter ones give you a fabulous palette for all your male cards
The James image is from the new James and Jenny art pad
It’s a simple card, lot’'s of layers using the papers
The matt for the image is using a Spellbinders blossom die, I stamped around the edge of the circle with one of the elements from the Grunge Swirls set just to add a bit of interest
The greeting is from the Handwritten Phrases set
Finish with a bit of lace, a button and some twine …you’re done!
Hope you like it, pop over to the Papertake Weekly blog for details of the prizes, how to enter the challenge and also lots of inspiration from the fab design team
Here are a few more piccies of my banner from the hop on Friday, my light went just as I was taking the pictures so they were a bit rubbish!
I’ve hung it along the front of a bookcase in the Lili of the Valley shop…
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday everyone, thanks for stopping by
