How is everybody doing today?
Hope you had a chance to play yesterday,
as it seems slightly sacreligious not to have!!
I started a project last night and wrapped it up
after I woke up this morning, had to recharge.
I was happy to see Simon Says host a challenge
for World Card Making Day in which
we are to make a card for Paige,
the link will take you to Erins blog
where you can pick up all the details on what's happened,
but I will streamline, Paige, a young lady,
has suffered a serious injury due to a boating accident
and Erin has been hosting a bit of a
card shower in Paige's honour.
Now I don't know about you,
but if I can bring a smile to a young ones face,
then it is certainly worth the while.
For those who already have made a card for Paige,
make a card and send it to Post Pals, link in sidebar
so that you can partake in this 24 hour challenge.
Also, you can find a link to Whimsy Stamps
in my sidebar, they have fashioned a digi-teddy
with all proceeds going to benefit
Paige's medical expenses.
So here is where my struggle lays.
I bought the digi weeks ago
and have wanted to use it,
nay, NEEDED to use it to make a card for this young lady,
but I just have NOT been able to do it.
Digi-stunted, I suppose.
I thought to myself, SATURDAY, I will make the card,
digi image or otherwise, THIS SATURDAY,
so to see the challenge at Simon Says was great
because it was my reinforcement, DO IT!!!
And at long last, here is the card:
I took the opportunity to play along
with Colour Create whose colours this fortnight
are dusty pink, hot pink and chocolate,
with the extra option of using pearls and swirls.
I love Colour Create and have not been able
to make challenge cutoffs as of late,
so phew, I made it this time.
In the flurry of Blogger challenges,
Carol's Sketch Fun is a favorite too,
but still the problem of making cutoffs prevails.
Not this time, this time I get to enter, woohoo!!
Here's that sketch:
I did the ol' squash and stretch with it
and added a sentiment.
The DP is Basic Grey,
the image is Sarah Kay from Stampavie
and it is coloured in distress inks.
I stamped the sentiment (Brenda Walton Inkadinkado clear set)
in Sepia over an Inkadinkado flourish stamped in Worn Lipstick,
distressed in Tattered Rose and then heat set,
sprayed with creme de cocoa Glimmer Mist
and completed with a few pearls.
The punch is Martha Stewart,
and the distressing is done in Brushed Corduroy,
and the edges frayed with my trusty finger nail.
The ribbon is from my stash and the polka dots
have been circled in Sakura gel pen.
Well, I better stop yammering and post this
so I don't miss Simon Says' extension, lol,
thanks for that, by the way!!
