One for Sam


Hope you’re all having a well earned break this

Easter Monday

Talking about Monday… we all know what that means to us crafters…. yay!!!

Crafty Angels challenge time. This week we have a sketch (provided by Sandie) for you to follow. As you probably know I am not keen on sketches….only because I can’t seem to stick to the game plan….always wanting to add extra or make changes….think I have done quite well with my nephew Sam’s card.

Used the greeting Farm image… Ian…bought from the Crafty Angels on line store….no colouring this time…. hand not up to it until the stitches come out (only one more week)…. and to make matters worse all my new pro-markers arrived Friday….as you can imagine chomping at the bit to use them.

Stamped onto a white nestie oval, then stamped again…but this time embossed the image onto a smaller orange nestie oval…married up the two images. Wanted some height for the ovals so used pinflair gel to glue together.

I made the letters at Laura’s crop last month…you will find more info here South East Crafters. If having loads of fun.. lots of laughs (especially when Breeda is there)…learning new techniques….then this is the place for you…I just love it and can’t wait for each month’s crop.

The theme last month was distressing…adore it. We used the Tim Holtz grunge board (as well as lots of other goodies)…coloured with paint daubers, sanded and then diamond glazed all over.

Used a blanket stitch for the papers, punched a heart (I’m sure Sam won’t mind this on his card) and the buttons are from my stash.
