I appreciate all the support I get from all of you and this year I want to make more of a consistent effort to show it.
This is where I have started….
This is such a cute set from our current Sale-a-bration catalogue. The new watercolour pencils make colouring in a very easy experience too.
To help me to design this card I started with this sketch…
I would also like to follow more sketch challenges this year, this is where you’ll find the Viva La Verve sketches.
As I was watching four 9 year old girls painting and enjoying each other’s company I was attempting to have a play with the new goodies that had arrived in my pre-order from the new Stamp Set. I pulled out “Word Play” a fantastic stamp set with lots of great phrases and this one just lept out at me. Along with all the new In Colours and a brand new stamp set call “Betsy’s Blossoms” I made this card very quickly….
I will be giving it to the “Clown Doctors” at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Brisbane. They were responsible for lots of laughs while we were in hospital recently, they really do such a fantastic job.
This card was perfect for me, I liked the simple design, it was a chance to showcase the new In Colours AND it is so quick to make…
The new colours are Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse, Gumball Green and Summer Starfruit. I have used the Butterfly Wings Embosslit with some Rhinestones which is mounted above a stamps from “Elements of Style”. The “thank you” is from a demonstator stamp set called “Taking Care of Business”.
We are off to a check up at the Hospital for Paige today, these cards are going to come in very handy (along with some fudge of course).
