Welcome to the weekend

Hi there,

Good week? We've had a really rather fab week, it's been very sociable but VERY bad for the waistline! Shopping (and lunching) with pals, dinner with pals (two different sets!) - all very nice though and the weather has been very kind to us too - YAY!

Still managing a little crafting (like a banshee!!!) and here are two makes I'd like to share with you, the first is in GREEN which never seems to be my "go to" colour and yet, I really like this CAS make and I hope you will too

My card
The front and back of my card and the front of my envelope
The inside of my card and the reverse of my envelope
Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to 5¾" x 4" and 5" x 3¾"
  • One piece of deep green card cut to 5¾" x 4"
  • Inkadinkado spray image (from their "Meadow" set) stamped using Ranger Archival library green ink
  • Hero Arts sentiment stamped using Versafine onyx black ink
  • Diamond stickles used to trace the spray image and add twinkle

I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
  1. TGIF - challenge No. 107 - SYMPATHY OR GET WELL
  2. Morgans Artworld - challenge No. 9 - ANYTHING GOES
  3. CCEE - challenge No. 1719 - WILDFLOWER WEEK

2 super makes, Kathy. That stamp set (Get well card) is so versatile, and it looks great in green. Great combination of colours in the Celebrate card too.

Ann said...

Two fab cards Kathy - I'm with you on green, but this time, it suits the stamp perfectly. Your OLC for LIM is a great idea - I forgot to think about masking for my one layer card, but your entry is very clever. I'm pleased that your social life isn't making too much of a dent in your crafting:) Enjoy it all!

Cara said...

I'm amazed you found time to craft with all that socialising! Two fab cards, love that shade of green. Cara x

Pat said...

Two great images Kathy and I love the green floral with the matching green layer, and then your spots and stripes in two very pretty colours and perfect for the LIM challenge. x

Esther said...

These are fab, Kathy! Loving the elegance and cool tones of the first card, and your second card for our spots and stripes challenge is great! Such a contemporary feel and beautifully CAS with that crisp background. Wonderful. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)
