Hello there again ... Wow I can't believe I'm here again within a week lol.
This time I've made a thank you card for a friend, Karen. Karen's daughters, Jade and Gemma went to the same school as Isabella but this year Jade and Gemma changed schools ... Needless to say the girls were devastated and thought their lives were over ... And needless to say that hasn't happened and they are just as best buddies now as they were before lol.
With the girls leaving Karen was left with a double lot of school uniforms from shorts, skorts, dresses, shirts, sports uniform, hats, winter uniform, jacket etc. One day Karen turned up with 3 huge bags of the uniforms and some of the things were like brand new and never or barely worn! There was so much that Bella would never be able to wear it all so I shared it with her other BFF Libby and we were still left with enough that she can go a fortnight before I have to wash lol ... Karen would not accept any money for the uniforms so I bought her a really lovely candle (Indian Spiced Tea fragrance) from Dusk and made her this card just to say thanks because the words thank you just didn't seem enough.
I've had this Tiddly Inks Wryn image coloured for a couple of weeks now just waiting for me to make a card and this seemed to be the perfect reason to use her. I found a sketch on C.R.A.F.T which I followed and then the card really seemed to come together from there. So many of the challenges this week seemed to fit the card so check out below for the ones I'm going to enter this card into.
|For Mad for Markers Challenge I used R24/R22/RR21/R20/R00 for dress, R29/R27/R24 and R21/R20/R00 for the hearts and R20 for a little blush|
I do want to say that when I've uploaded the photo onto my blog the colours look so washed out compared to how they looked in real life! You can barely see the distressing and inking on all the papers and laces and you can just pick up the kindyglitz along all four edges of the bottom layer of PP but there's nothing I can do about it considering the card has already been given to Karen earlier today ...
Anyway, hope everyone has had a great weekend and the week is not too busy or stressful for you ...
Until Next time
