Hello and welcome back. Well, once again Cary's cards last week were an absolute hit. How on earth can I follow those gorgeous gnomes? Aren't they just cute?
I don't know about you but I've started trying to make my Christmas cards. I can hear some of you saying, ALREADY? Well from this year onwards, I aim to get my cards made and written before Christmas Eve! Here's hoping! Well it hasn't been very quiet here as my poor grandson Theo who is now 7+ months old has been teething like crazy all week and still, he has no teeth! I reckon the tooth fairy forgot to dish him out some! 😂😂
Back to my projects this week. I tried to make a jumping box card, no luck yet! I started a triple cube box card, no luck yet! So I came back to simpler cards. Jest as well as it's #simplestamping today.
A few months ago, Cary and I held a charity card making day for a local care home. Most of my card have now gone but here are a few pictures of the simple stamping ones. I used some retired white papers that have a simple image on. They werre the Irresistibly Floral papers. This first one is spots. I edged the card with the gorgeous sea green colour of the Bermuda Bay ink pad and mounted it onto a White card base. To decorate this one, I added what was a wreath but it broke as I was messing about with it! It come from the lovely set of foiled papers called Forever Gold Laser cut papers. They are simply beautiful. So here after I broke it, I saw the letter C and added 2 simple words, A Celebration from the Field of Flowers stamp set. I have left the inside panel, also in the sea green, blank as I thought it might be good for the person who bought it to add their own celebratory message.
