Hi, I've finally managed to make a card this weekend!
We went shopping to our largest nearby town (1 1/2 hours drive away) yesterday so there wasn't much free time by the time we got home.
Sadly my last chicken was killed by a snake last week, so I thought we'd revamp our worm farm to put our veggie scraps into. While tidying up the garden to reposition the worm container I cut my pinky with the seceteurs, boy are they sharp!! It doesn't need stitches but it'll probably take a while to heal up. I don't think I'll be able to wash the dishes for a while lol!
I made this card to enter a few challenges. At Inkspirational there's a photo for inspiration.
I used lots of snippets., so I can enter the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. The circle frame for the wreath was a leftover from resizing a circle using a Spellbinder die. The autumn holly leaves are punched from the leftover sheet of watercolor paper I coloured with distress inks to create a couple of autumn themed cards. The green leaves and holly are cut from snippets of green card. It's amazing how you can manipulate a punch to get just one more cut out of a scrap!!
At Simon Says Stamp Monday Blog and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Blog the themes are anything goes, and at Addicted to Stamps & More the challenge is to create a Clean & Simple card.
Materials used: Martha Stewart Branch and Holly punches; distress inks; Stately embossing folder; bling and sentiment sticker from stash.
Thanks for visiting :)
