Good morning all. I am finally back and what a treat it was to be able to sit and craft after what feels like an absolute age.
We are all moved into our new home now, which is fantastic for me especially as it is all on one level and I have a garden that I can actual access! That has got to be one of the things I missed most as I love being in the garden.
We have also had a fantastic holiday cruising around Italy, Spain and France, the weather was 40 degree's everyday and the sea so calm you didn't know you was on the water.
Anyhow back to the matter in hand and this week at Moving Along With The Times the lovely Deb's set us the challenge to 'Make It Sentimental' so in other words make your sentiment the focal point of your card (no images allowed). We are sponsored by Di's Digital Downloads so a great prize to be had and well worth entering for.
Oh and just so you are aware over the summer we will be having fortnightly challenges so you will have plenty of time to enter and we get some time off (like I need it), well that is what the boss ordered so who am I to argue lol.
For my card I decided to do something different for me and use white with just a hint of colour and lots of layers. I have used 5 different Spellbinder nestability dies along with this gorgeous Cheery Lynn Waltzing Matilda die which I was lucky enough to win over at Bearly Mine Challenges. I made the background by inking a mask and then running it through my cuttlebug to print it onto my card stock.
