Arrived home late last night after a week where I have travelled over 730 miles in 5 days to four different counties in the South of England! The weather whilst away has been truly springlike (apart from a very strong wind whilst on the Devon coast on Day 2)- had blue skies and reasonable temperatuires - came home with a lot of washing to find here in the wilds of the North West today dawned, grey wet and miserable.....
Now got clothes all over the place trying to dry them as I'm away again first thing Monday morning - this time a four day stint to the Midlands.
With so much else going on my little creative bit of a brain cell has decided to have a snooze...struggling to come up with anything so instead have 'cased' a card from the uber talented Birgit who makes the most awesome CAS cards.
Sorry about the really naff picture, the light here is dreadful at the mo. This card is really on a white linen background but it has a yukky cream tinge to it on here.
I used a frame stamp which was a freebie in a magazine eons ago - probably only the second time I've inked it - once stamped I masked it off and sponged some Distress Ink (Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed) inside it.
The flower was done by punching some snippets of white card then folding the punched flowers in half to make semi circles of petals.
A teeny yellow pearl in the middle and another scrap piece coloured with Peeled Paint DI and cut into the tiniest of strips to make the stem and leaves.
Am paying a very quick visit to the Playground to say Hi to the playmates first then will try and get round you all to see what you've been up to whilst I've been away. I apologise in advance for my absences over the coming weeks!
