Hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far. My dear husband has been on night duty this weekend and what better an excuse to do some crafting than when I have to keep quiet when he`s asleep!! Oh Bliss!!
This week over at http://http//simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/ our task this week was to come up with a card containing three squares.
This tied in nicely with a request from my husband Ron to do a retirement card for a collegue at work. This solved the problem of how to set out the card. Now for the image. What to do. After a good rummage through all my stamps I eventually settled on a set from Michelle Marsden " The Vintage Collection". As the person retiring does a lot of travelling I thought these set of cases fitted the bill nicely. This I stamped using memento ink and then coloured in using my Prismacolor pencils. I then mounted my stamped squares onto Beige pearlescent card from Crafter`s Companion. My base card is also CC card centura pearl snow white. Pink card from my card stash was border punched using Martha Stewart Punch the name of which I can`t remeber at present. I finished off the card with a retirement sentiment from Crafter`s Companion/Jayne Nesterenko`s Cute Companion Summer set. Now all I have to do is find a suitable insert and that`s it ready for Ron to take in with him to work on Monday.
Thankyou to all who left comments on my last week entry and I do appreciate the extra ideas form you as well. Love reading all your comments as usual.xxx
