Good Morning World!
And it is a great day to be alive, I am so thankful I woke up this morning, if I hadn't you would not be having the pleasure of viewing my card and reading my post....
I have many bloggy friends, and Rosie, (Hey There.... rosie girl!) her genre is CAS which as you know is sooooo not me, posted up a Kraft card on Saturday for ODBD and it just so happened that I had a Kraft card sitting on my desk ready to embellish, a little freaky when we are oceans away from one another that we happened to be on the same wavelength.
She loves her Kraft CS, which I never use as I am not a Brown girl, (metaphorically speaking) but as I so often belabour I am open minded to everything.
My first foray into this product was a requirement through my Dt position at OCC, I swallowed hard that day, but I made the card, not one of my better ones I will hasten to say.
I thought a change was needed to blow away the cobwebs that were beginning to form from who knows what and make a card from Kraft and not much else! I wanted to convince myself that I can work with this product and create something that is pleasing to the eye and if I am lucky pick up a WOW in the process.... I am not sure about the latter, but it is pleasantly attractive.
I am blathering a bit this morning I apologise........
There are two special Challenges this week I want to enter:
Penny Black Saturday Challenge....Week199--May Day! Spring themed cards!
sponsors- Fantastic Ribbon
My sentiment is from the PB transparency set 'Gratitude' which has been stamped in Hero Hues Cerulean Chalk Ink.
My butterfly from the same set, has been white embossed on painted paper.
and Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge No Designer Paper. the prize a $15
My die-cuts are ODBD fancy labels with the matching SB labels 17. Inked up in 'frayed burlap' distress ink, then 'colourbox' white ink stamped over the top.I inked up the brocade embossing folder in frayed burlap before running it through the machine.And lastly the fanciful flourish by 'cheery lynn designs'.
And that's me, the weekend is over sadly, but we can look forward to playing again this week which will be the beginning of MAY! Does anyone feel like me that this Year is passing by extremely quickly.
