So it's been literally a "chuck everything in the suutcase quick" kind of day!
In between this week I have managed to do a couple of cards, one or two inspired by Pinterest (of course!), and have started to try and put together a commisioned card which I confess for some unknown reason is proving really difficult.
Can't raise enthusiasm for it - so I know that although I have enjoyed my year so far it has actually been very tiring - the travelling especially - and I think I DO need a few days rest doing not a lot except lazing about.
The pic isn't too good on this card - it's not very sharp (a bit like me!) - but the stamping IS - not blurred like it shows here!
This was a 'necessity' make for someone who is not very well - but didn't want a 'Get Well Soon' type of card as it isn't appropriate.
My fave white linen card used throughout.
The poppy head stamps are eons old and may have been bought at a long ago visit to the NEC. Same with the script stamp - eons old!
Used some Distress inks (Wild Honey/Scattered Straw/Mustard Seed/Squeezed Lemonade) on a scrap piece of card, stamped the poppy and script and then tied round the trim.
Stuck onto another piece of card then layered onto the base card.
Am popping this into the Playground as I did use a couple of pieces of scrap for the layers.
Am hoping to get internet connection whilst I am away so will be able to keep in touch.
