Good morning everyone, hope you are havign a great start to the day :)
I am off to the paper mill soon to get some card stock as I have about 3 sheets left!! and maybe a few other bits and bobs. I will let you know what I got when I get back.
I knew I wouldn't get much crafting time today because I have so much other stuff to do so I made a card last night for 2 challenges. I used the sketch from Sketch and Stash (my new stash is my Papermania papers) and for the Whiff Of Joy Challenge this week the colours are brown and blue. I love this colour combo but I couldn't for the life of me find any papers in my stash that had both brown and blue on it so I looked for a brown and a blue but couldn't find a brown paper, they all had other colours in them so I resorted to my digi's instead. I downloaded some last week after losing most of my digi stuff but I forgot to write where I downloaded it from.. duh.
When I looked at the brown paper on my computer, I was wandering why it was called script paper because it just looked plain to me but after I printed it out I could see the tiny writing all over it and it is actually quite prettty in real life.
The image is another one I got from Lorraine, isn't she beautiful? I love colouring this one.
I really must get a scallop punch!! Every time I want scallops, I have to cut them by hand and they always end up squint, but this time I used an old embossing board to emboss some scallops then cut it out. This made it a lot easier but it would sure be so much easier with a punch!
I got my nesties out to do the scalloped mat. Haven't used these for a while. I love them but most of the cards I have done lately have been square or rectangle images. I think I will get some square ones or maybe the labels..... hmmm will have to convince Barry that I really need them lol.
Image WOJ from Lorraine, thanks again hun xx
Papers: Brown script paper download, blue paper from Papermania sweet nothings pad
Embelishments: small prima flowers from Aries Crafts, large flowers, spacers, pearls and lace from my stash
Tools: Cuttlebug, small classic scalloped circles nesties, Glittergirls embossing board and embossing tool.
Right I'm off stash shopping. Hope I find some bargains :) There's probably more chance of me paying over the odds for what I want actually but if I need it then I have to get it don't I?
See you all later.
Hugs Lora xx
