I hope you had a lovely weekend. I should be back into the swing of things next week when my treatment is finished completely. I have one more session in London on Thursday, but I'm suffering a lot with my back so I think it will be a bit hit and miss this week, sorry!
While I was away I made a couple of mini cards. I don't often make them but I didn't want to take loads away with me, so thought I would make up a few mini cards for me for a change. You know what it's like when you make cards, you get lots of requests, but when you need one for yourself you just don't have a single one to hand. (or is that just me?!!)
I had a lot of thank you cards to make for people that have been helping out while I've been away, but in the end only managed about one card a week, but still it was better than none! I can't believe how tired I've been after the intensity of the course, I'm absolutely shattered, and sore to boot with all of these new strengthening exercises. It's good too though, I'm moving a bit better than I was and have made a little progress in lots of areas so there are a lot of positives too. Anyway, enough of that doom and gloom, you want to see a card, right?!
Get Sketchy Challenge.
This card is pretty self explanatory. I cut out a felt flower using Papertrey Ink flower dies, and attached with a sparkly red brad. I cut out a piece of navy Basic Grey cardstock (if you look closely you can see a slight pattern in it - but unfortunately I'm not sure of the range it's from) which I matted to the front of the mini white card. I then cut out a square using Basic Grey June Bug paper to fit onto the navy, which I cut into triangles. I decided not to use the fourth triangle because I wanted to add the sentiment to the right (the tag is one of the nestie rectangles)
This card actually looks so much nicer in real life, it's really quite cute!
If you haven't done so already don't forget to check out Tiffany Doodles challenge. Tiffany has just released some new images that fit perfectly into Nesties, they are lovely! Go check them out!
Also, over at the Play Date Cafe we have another fun challenge running this week. Last week we hit a record number of 108 players, which was SO exciting for us all. We've got another fun one coming later this week too, watch this space!!
Ciao for now!
