As we start the Easter holidays, I would like to wish you all a wonderful, peaceful Easter, and take the opportunity to thank you for visiting my blog and leaving all the lovely comments and encouragement that make my time spent blogging so worthwhile. I love this hobby of ours because it not only gives me hours of pleasure creating things to share, but it has also given me the opportunity to 'meet' so many friendly and caring people. Enough of the soppy stuff and on to a card I'd like to share for a challenge that is new to me:-
The Card Concept
This time the challenge was to use an umbrella and the 'concept' is to choose to make the card in one of 6 different styles as outlined on the blog. I chose to opt for 'clean and layered'. Now I have wanted to enter this challenge for some time but I haven't had enough time. This week has been quieter for me so I thought I'd have a go, but then I saw the theme and felt a bit deflated because I don't have a single umbrella stamp in my stash! I know - with all the stuff that is stashed away, I was sure I would find an umbrella somewhere, but no, not a single one was to be found. I was about to give up until next time when I remembered that I have a magic machine (Silhouette Cameo) in the corner and that it could whip up an umbrella for me in the wink of an eye! I soon came up with this card
Sad to say, that an umbrella was not the only thing missing in my stash. I also did not have an appropriate sentiment for my card, so I turned to the computer and made one. You don't want to know how long it took me to get the spacing for the umbrella handle right, but it came out okay in the end. I used snippets of Memory Makers card Kids Collection 'Emma' that has been sitting around for years; the L'il Inkers stitched square dies to mat up the card, I and finished it off with some Wink of Stella glitter brush for the raindrops and a glitter pen for the centres of the flowers.
I'd also like to enter this into
