Things are slowly starting to get back to normal now all the festivities are over. I have a pile of ironing to do, the upstairs needs a hoover and my windows need washing, but am happy to ignore it all to make a card or two - ahh yes normality is restored!
I think I may even have acquired a new follower or two - but you have all disappeared again, so I don't know for sure! If I have - hello and welcome to my blog. Hope I don't bend your ears too much with my waffle and I do post about cards sometimes - promise!
Just to prove a point, here is a post about cards. I know this is getting a bit repetitive, but I can't believe that another two weeks have flown by and it's time again for a new challenge at Divas by Design. What a wonderful selection of art there was for the theme of anything but a card. So much variety and invention out there - wow!
This time the challenge is Die cuts and Punches and we are sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps. There is a huge variety of digital stamps over there, something for everyone.
So here is my card, it's the card I made for my daughters' fourth birthday last week. I had tried a stepper card for a DoCrafts challenge and liked it - once I got past all the measuring and swearing! So thought I would try it again - don't know that it will be something I do a lot though.
The image is a Stampavie.com Sarah Kay one - Rose's Garden, coloured with my Primas and shaded with chalks. I used my new Go-Kreate dies to mat and layer the image. The heart border is a Martha Stewart punch, sentiment and letters from Craftwork Cards, leaves are a die, flower I made using Prisma petals. The '4' is from a sheet of letters and numbers I had in my stuff. Papers are from a pack I'm using a lot just now - DoCrafts A5 Tulip linen pack. Goodness that was long list! Think I've remembered all of it.
Am really looking forward to seeing what is created this time round. Thanks for reading to the end of this very long post and I'll go now!
