It's been kind of a sad weekend, my neighbours of about 10 years moved away today. I wouldn't say we were close friends but I've got to know them over the years and it was lovely to see their family grow beside me. Hopefully we can keep in touch through Facebook.
The challenges at Eclectic Ellapu have been up since the start of the month and I shared my card for the Pink team then. Cos I'm on the pink team!
I also included a card with the Purple teams inspiration and I've been keeping it to share later as a reminder (saying as our challenges have gone monthly!) and the time has come to share it! There's a week left to enter and the challenges are...
The Pink teams...
Seaside or Nautical
You can see my card for this theme here.
And the Purple teams challenge is...
With an option of using watercolours!
My card is one that I made for my wee nephew for when he turned 1 year old last month!
Here's my card
If you haven't guessed already, his name is Noah! I printed the letters out - they're a font called Patchwork Letter and I coloured them with the following Copics: BV04,B95,24,G24,Y17.
I printed the papers directly onto my card-stock, on both sides. The front is Dots paper from the Easton kit and the inside is Yellow cream dots from the A Boo-tiful Night kit - both from Summertime Designs. I folded the card into a DL sized card and then measured and cut into a number "1". I made paper springs and attached the letters on them so they sit out from the card base. I also added some stick-on elements, pom-poms, buttons, charms and bells from my stash.
For the inside I used a Wild Rose Studio sentiment and made a message panel to match the patched letters. I had another couple of stick on elements so I used them up too! You can also see the paper springs that the letters are mounted onto the front with in this picture.
So you could say that this is a subtle reminder that there's 1 week left to enter the challenges at Eclectic Ellapu! lol!
