Today I got a package in the post … it was a package I kind of knew about … what I didn’t know was that I was going to receive it soooo quickly … or that it would contain as much as it did. I was excited, delighted, ecstatic when I opened it and found a stack of inks in a veritable rainbow of colours … plus the most delicious card to accompany them. So now I’m more than happy dancing, which is quite appropriate really as the package and card came from my sweet and talented friend Bev at Happy Dance … and it’s thanks to Bev that I have my card tonight ’cause I used some of the inks to make it :).
It was originally for two challenges … CAS(E) this Sketch, where Karolyn’s our sketch artist this week, and CAS-ual Fridays, where the challenge was to use arrows. However, I was having so much fun playing with my new goodies that I didn’t notice I’m out of time on CF, so now it’s just for CTS. I have a big thank you to say to the DT at CTS, after my wild fish card was chosen as a Favorite last week … it was a lovely surprise and it brightened my frantic week … thank you ladies! Here’s this week’s offering …
I used a green bordered base card, stamped the arrows (TAWS) and used a separate panel for the sentiment (also TAWS). The panel had it’s corners rounded, the open letters coloured and was popped up on foam dots. The little wooden shape was coloured with the lime green ink and popped up over the sentiment panel. The shape is kind of compass-y … goes with the arrows/direction theme … although it could also be a sun, which would go with the weather theme (winds) … so that works then.
That’s it from me for tonight … it’s pretty late so I’ll be checking out all the other entries and catching up tomorrow. Thanks so much for coming by, your visit and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
