Well, another week has rushed by in a blur. I'd like to say I've been busy crafting but I haven't. I have been away from home spending time with my gorgeous grandchildren - I currently have two and a half of them. It's true that time flies when you're having fun.
I have also been swapping cards again. This one was in
the Kit and Clowder Facebook group where the lovely Alyce, who runs the group, organised an international card swap. The theme was "Christmas Come Early" and this is the card that I made for my partner Pam who lives in Michigan, USA.
I chose this image because I know Pam loves Yorkies.
I used an A5 landscape card blank and covered it with matt gold card and a paper from LOTV.
The image is "Puppy in a Boot" by Mitzi from Aurora Wings and is available through the Stamps by Aurora Wings Facebook group. I used Copics to colour it then cut it out using a Spellbinders die. I matted the image onto matt gold card and punched a hole at either end to thread the ribbon though.
The flowers were made using a Marianne poinsettia die set and an X-cut punch on red card. I liberally sprinkled them with white Frantage. The sentiment is a Britannia die and I finished the card with a triple bow and some gold gems.
I'd like to say a big thank you to Alyce for organising the card swap. It's been great fun.
I've entered my card in the following challenges:
