Is it just me or is it really cold?? My office feels like someone left the freezer door open, but people keep saying it's gonna warm up again - do they mean this year or next year??! Lol!
I've got a long awaited appointment tomorrow to see about my achy shoulders. It's almost 11 months since my accident and my shoulders are still really sore but my main problem is that I've got so little strength in them. I used to be quite strong but I struggle to put cups in my cupboard now :( Hopefully they'll be able to tell me some good news tomorrow and I can get back to my old self soon. I've got a concert to go to then tomorrow evening so hopefully they won't do anything to leave me too sore! Nine Inch Nails might just be a concert that you don't want to go to already feeling the pain!
Anyway, time for another new challenge at the Creative Card Crew!
We have a fab sponsor this week with the Scrapping Center!
Our challenge for the next fortnight is...
Down on the farm!
I must admit that I made these cards quite a while ago for a swap on our forum but they fitted this challenge so well that I kept them to blog until now.
Here's what I did:
The stamps are from Woodware but they're clear stamps and you can build a scene with them which is fun! I coloured them with the following promarkers: Slate, lilac, lavendar, burnt orange, tequila sun rise, soft peach, warm grey 3,2,1, fuschia pink, pink lobster, tropical orchid. I cut some cloud shapes out of paper and used them as a mask to sponge some distress ink for the sky.
The papers are Pink Petticoat Gingham and Daisy Bouquet in cranberry and sunshine. The die is a Spellbinders Eyelet Square die. I also used some twine and raffia from my stash.
The inside matches the front with the colours of paper flipped.
Here's the whole set:
So I do hope you can join us for this fun challenge at the Creative Card Crew - the rest of the DT have some great inspiration for you, and some also showing that you don't need animals on your card!
