Weekend Winding Down
Well I hope you all had a great weekend, our weather here in NJ was gorgeous, Liked it a bit better on Saturday, it was a little bit cooler out, today was a bit too warm, but so glad Fall is on the way. I have had enough hot weather and high Electric bills.
So we had relaxing one here, trying to put my creating room to rights, but it so needs a major overhaul, hopefully will get to all of that soon.
I did get to make one card, I had a lot of local projects to be finished up around here last week, so did not get much card making done. I did hear from Dixie in North Carolina, and she was so nice and let me know how much she liked all the cards I sent for Operation Write Home, a great cause for our soldiers, you can send in your home made cards for them to write to their families on. I am so glad someone will be enjoying my creations. I hope to keep up with this, I did it at first as part of a challenge, associated with Hero Arts, now I will do it because it feels good and right to do. So all cards I make and show here will be going to our troops to use in the future.
Attached is a card for a challenge on Flickr/Hero Arts, me and my new flickr friend Anette from New Zealand are creating, wer are doing 5 cards each, we use the same stamp in the same week and see what we come up with. This is our second week, and I am so enjoying doing this.
So I hope you enjoy the card, I used Bazzil cardstock, Hero Arts stamps, Large Canvas Stripes background, and Fabulous Flourish, and lastly, the stamp Garden star Flower stamp, I did some embossing, used some perfect pearls, copics, and I added a little bling and some brads in the center of the flowers and some ribbon. I am pleased with the outcome, some times I am not always thrilled with the end results, but this one was a keeper, or I guess not, it will be heading out with the next shipment of cards heading for Operation Write Home.
Well, thanks for stopping by and see you soon,
