It’s been a bit quiet here on the old blog for a while … life’s been a bit over-full dealing with the after effects of a lightning strike on the house last Saturday. Now, we have most services back … internet (obviously!), phone, power and hot water (blissful!) … and hope the rest (plus the replacement of our frazzled electrical goods) will be sorted quickly. Keeping things in perspective, it is only ‘stuff’ … we’re blessed it wasn’t us that got frazzled! Anyway, last night, after a few evenings of lovely visits round the blogosphere, I was (almost) not behind with visiting everyone, so I sat down in my craft corner, breathed a little, and made this …
I die cut the Paper Smooches ‘thanks’, topped it with Stickles and added a coat of Glossy Accents (very sparkly!). The Avery Elle brush strokes were stamped onto a white panel and the flowers and leaves (also AE) were stamped onto separate card. I trimmed out the flowers and leaves, adhered them to the white panel on different height foam dots, and added tiny pearls to the flower centres. The posy took a bit of arranging … which was fine because by the time I’d at last decided on a final look, the glittery thanks was dry, so I added that over the brush strokes and popped the finished white panel onto a card base with foam tape.
I’m joining in with …
CASology – Stripe (the brush strokes and have a close look at those blooms!)
Fusion – Beach House (colours from the table in the gorgeous inspiration photo … flowers, cupcakes, melons … and the shimmer from the light you can just see hanging above it.)
Paper Smooches SPARKS – Anything Goes (die cut thanks)
SSS Wednesday – Make It Sparkle (I did, with Stickles!)
ETA: Oops, Mr Linky’s door had already closed at PSS … there’s always next time!
Hope your week’s been calmer than ours … hoping for a more peaceful one ahead! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
