A mixture of things….

21 Feb

Hi again. I know it has been over a week since my last post but I have had NO ENTHUSIASM to make cards this week. Not sure what it was but I would sit down with every intention to make a card and that would be as far as it would go. Admittedly I have been busy, having coffee with friends, LOL!

Friday Kirsty, Dee the boys and I went for a drive out to Paper 2 (about 1hr trip, one way) and I picked up some more papers. As I mentioned previously I love the cosmo cricket and October Afternoon papers at the moment. I think it is the patterns and colours that are appealing to me.

Yesterday I went to see Rob Thomas at Rochford Winery. He was fantastic and what a way to see him out in the open air. Now I am sure the ladies out there will agree with me when I say aaahhhh what a spunk!

So onto the card I have for you today. I ended up making this card with the paper I got on Friday and by following this weeks sketch over at Friday Sketchers and challenge at Papertake Weekly (use checks or gingham).

 

I am happy with how the card came out although I did struggle. With my enthusiasm of wanting to use the papers and Chester I forgot how hard male cards are to embellish!! I think I managed to pull it off though!  

What have I used? Paper from Cosmo Cricket, Lil’Man: Handsome Henry (both sides), Chester from Kraftin Kimmie, Copic markers, Spellbinders Nestabilities, sentiment from C.C. Designs Spring Kit purchased at All that Scraps, wire and buttons. You can see that I have also applied some faux stitching.

Well that is it for me today about to head out to my Mum and Dads for our family Sunday night dinner.

Until next time xoxo
