Firstly, my sincere apologies for having not posted often recently. In a nutshell....things have taken on a MASSIVE full forward thrust here....and sadly, blogging was very much low on the list of priorities. I hope to remedy that today. I have so much to show you all. I have had many birthdays, been to craft camp this weekend just gone and have remained creating in the interim.
I cannot go any further without saying a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all my followers, readers and "poppers by" for helping me reach over 5,200 blog hits. I am gobsmacked and so very shocked to say the least. I hope you will continue to enjoy the cards and projects I share with you.
Onto the "AWWWWWWW" of today's title.
Now as you all may know, I am an avid sporty and netballer. One of the gals on the team recently got engaged, so I volunteerds to make the card for the happy couple. I was inspired by this card I saw on SCS. I did however wish for a splash of colour as opposed to the monochrome palate use on the SCS card. This is what I came up with.....
I must admit...I had a heck of a lot of fun making this card. I stuck to 3 colours.....Riding Hood Red, Choc Chip and Old Olive.....and Whisper White of course!! I was struggling with a main colour that wld suit both a boy and a gal, because the boy is getting the card too of course, then I stumbled across the DP that I received as a gift from the (lifesaving) Kerry Bunting. I attended one of her Cards for the Troops sessions and received this DP as part of a thank you gift for participating.
I also love the little details on the owls, being the small beaks (which PS I am really glad I do not cut for all the owls I do....LOL!!) and her small hair bow. The leaves are from the XL Bird Punch and sentiment is from "So Happy For You" which was one of the SAB SU sets this year.
Thanks for popping by. I have a MOUNTAIN of projects to sort thru and post, so pop by again soon please....you know that you are more than welcome.
