Welcome to Thursday - how's it working out for you?
but only just - not entirely sure where the morning has gone but it's gone just the same. No post again for me today so no new stash to play with - boo hoo - not like I don't have plenty to be going on with.
Anyhoo - checked out a couple of blogs this morning and the card below sort of happened as a result. Joanne Wardle's blog featured a variation on the post it technique I so love and also featured a challenge called "One Layer Wednesday" - now, as it happens this weeks OLW challenge is YELLOW so my card's no good for that but hey . . . now I know it's there!
I have, however, entered this card over on the ABC Christmas challenge where the current years challenges are A-Z and A is for "Anything for Christmas" and I hope you like it.
I used an Inkadinkado clear stamp for the image and the flourish is Paper Artsy. I also used distress inks in bundled sage and peeled paper for the post-it border, stamping my tree in memento tuxedo black before highlighting with platinum stickles (thanks to crafting pal, Wynneth, for introducing me to this wondrous stickle shade). You might spot my "mistake" but I'm hoping the ultimate recipient will forgive me as I like the card otherwise. Oh, and another bonus is that being only one layer, it will happily go through regular mail without attracting too much attention or requiring a LARGE (for large read rip off!) stamp!
We're forecast for snow later today so I might even have to head to Sainsbury's to top up supplies but, other than that, currently no plans for the remainder of the day so, who knows? I might just have a go at the YELLOW challenge!
Whatever you good people are doing then I hope you will have some fun doing it, catch y'all later.
