Well … I have a stack of cards to share … just need to find the time to post them all! This is one of the Mother’s Day cards that I made back in May! This was for my mum. 🙂
The colours are really soft and feminine … and the centre panel is created using the ’emboss resist’ technique. I forgot to do this on glossy card though … so it was a little tricky blending the sponged colour! (I did put ‘glossy white’ on my card recipe … so you wouldn’t make the same mistake.) I added some spritzing over the top. I have just re-discovered my spritzer and have used it a bit lately. (Can’t believe it is being retired from SU! in the coming catty!) Love Love the new butterfly punches … so easy to create something pretty really quickly! Also love these two colours together! Wisteria Wonder & Pool Party. I am celebrating that Pool Party is staying permanently! (I had bought 3 packs of the card … before I found out!) 😀 😉
It is the June (Queen’s Birthday) long weekend and my twin sis (Christine) & hubby (Ian), Gav & I are away together at a very peaceful and relaxing holiday house right on the edge of Burrill Lake (Sth Coast NSW). It is soooo quiet here! But … it is soooo nice to get away from all the hustle and bustle of life. You can actually hear yourself think. 🙂 I have done some reading … some facebook catch up … pinterest catch up … feedly catch up. We have watched a couple of movies, a LITTLE TV, the boys have played cards, Christine & I made up Skye’s 21st invitations (after I spent 4 1/2 hrs cutting all the ‘bits’ last Thursday). It has been lovely. So … we have one day to go … leaving around 4ish this afternoon for a 2 hr trip home. (Maybe 4 hours depending on the long weekend traffic from the South Coast to home!!!) There are a couple of pics on my facebook page if you would like to have a look!
Well … back to real life tomorrow! I need to start organising that 21st party … and plan for our trip to Vanuatu! (More later!) See you all again soon! Hugs xxx
