My friend Jan, loves these Yesteryear cards for the males in her family. Here is one that I made several weeks ago. Someone I know said when she was ordering a pack of soft suede that the colour would be perfect with these Stamp It 9up pictures of Yesteryear images. So I filed that away in my mind and pulled out the soft suede when I had to make this card. Well Charmaine was right!!!! Perfect match. So using black as the base and highlight I made this card. Not much to explain except that the greetings label is actually straight on the card. lol
Jan told me yesterday that her grandson who is a teenager thought the card just fantastic and actually asked about who made it and where his Gran had bought it. For a teenager to go into the in's and out's of a card that's given to him is amazing!!
It's wonderful when you get feedback on the cards you make.
I have been missing in action I know, but with some excuse I feel. I purchased a kit from Sharon at No Time To Stamp in the US called K&Co Blue Awning. It includes the 12 x 12 paper pad, co-ordinating ribbons, a pack of Blue Awning Grand Adhesions flowers, pearls and bling to match.
The amount of cards one can get out of a 12 x 12 paper pad is awesome so I have been purchasing extra accessories in the same Blue Awning range as embellishments.
Up to date I have cut 44 card kits out of the papers and cardstock to match all waiting to be put together with embellishments. I'm determined to use as much of the paper as possible.
Then on top of all that, it's school holidays here for two weeks. We are now into the second week and my son has had his girlfriend here to stay since last Thursday. They both have jobs but start and finish at different times so I've been backwards and forwards to Sarina nearly everyday. I don't mind but it does cut into my crafting time. lol
Finally as another addiction, I joined Facebook which I thought I'd never do. So now I'm playing Farm Ville and Farm Town. In between running to Sarina and back, I'm checking that my crops are growing and haven't withered and died çause I haven't been able to harvest them. pmsl
Right I'm at the end of my long winded post and now I'm off to check out blogs on my Google Reader. Yep, another addiction. Oh yes, and of course organise breakfast. lol
Have a wonderful day everyone.
