Bright and sunny today but still cold. Not much to report as far as news goes as it has been too cold and slippery for me to be out and about unless I had to….like running an errand this afternoon for my sister-in-law who cannot drive. I didn’t mind as it got me out of the house for a bit. I made a quick stop at the thrift store and picked up a couple packages of craft supplies….I know, I know, I don’t need them but when I see two Stampin’ Up ink pads plus about 8 mini pads for $3.00, I’m getting them!
This week I got a card made for the challenge over at: www.christmascardchallenges.blogspot.com which was to make a card using their colour swatch of blues and pink. Here’s mine:
This is a Magnolia image coloured with my Prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol. The background paper wasn’t with my Christmas stash but was part of another thrift store haul from awhile back. It just matched the coloured image perfectly. The ribbon was from the now closed shoe factory outlet. I just untied some of the bows and ironed them flat so I would have both ribbon and bows. Spellbinder dies were used for cutting the cardstock. The snowflakes were some I had on hand and are both punched and die cut. I just sit sometimes and punch or die cut a bunch of them to use up bits of white cardstock and store them away until I need them. The little pink pearls came from a sheet of various coloured pearls from the dollar store.
That’s all for a Friday. Have a great weekend everyone.
