Hey everyone, what are you up to over the weekend?
I had planned to nip into town today for a bit of last minute shopping but I saw the rain and changed my mind, I’m such a wimp! I did most of my shopping when we went to Stratford Upon Avon, it’s a lovely place and the rest I’ve ordered online so I’m quite organised with my pressies. I’d love to make my own cards but I’ll end up buying them (again!) as there just aren’t enough hours in the day at the moment.
I had to laugh at all your comments about the scrap of lace, it’s back in my box and I’m happy to know that everyone is as frugal as me with their stash (except you Mary, shame on you!)
As it’s the first challenge of the month we have our usual Anything Goes at Papertake Weekly
The optional extra is to make a clean and simples (CAS) or less is more card, I fancied trying this and spent 2 nights faffing about …it’s harder than it looks and my efforts ended up in the bin
I wanted to try but this is only an option and if you don’t want to use this theme then you don’t have to
I told Dawny I’d have to give it a miss this week so I haven’t got a card on the blog but then I remembered this one that I did for Creative Stamping magazine a while back, I think it would be classed as Clean and Simple so thought I’d show you…
I used Nativity Angels, Lili of the Valley of course, and a Marianne stitched border die
That’s about it really and I like it, it made a change not to do a square card!
The sentiment was done on the computer and I just finished it off with some little gems
Hope you like it, have a fabulous weekend everyone
