Hello my dear friends!
I have been away for a few days as we had some holidays ( bank holidays as the English say) and I went to visit my mom! We had a fun gathering - my brother also came with his family and as we had beautiful warm weather ( temperatures up to 30 deg C) we had a BBQ in my moms garden sitting under the cherry tree! Lovely! I came back on Wednesday but my daughter came to visit and her boyfriend , my niece and another friend and I made lunch for all of them so it was such a busy day I just couldn't get up to doing WOYWW - so I missed out on that! Still yesterday I had a bit of time after I came back from work and I got up to making this thank you card for my aunt - she went to Medjugorje ( a place of worship in Croatia- also known for the appearing of Mother Mary to some little children) and brought back a rosary for me! I thought I would make a thank you card as it was really nice she thought of me there! Prayers can only be a good thing!
Anyway here is my card
I looked at it this morning and thought maybe I over did it but I guess shabby chic is all about that! I started out with the main stamp ( La Blanche), colored it with copics and put some stickles on it ( Cotton Candy and I think the green one is called Dragon Fly) and that sat on my desk for a few days. Once I decided I was going to use it on a card I started hunting for a suitable background paper!Can you imagine with all the DP you have you can't find the right color??? Huh! Anyway I decided to make it in the end!
I smooshed Tea dye ink and Worn lipstick on my craft sheet and dipped the cardstock also added a bit of Tuscun Sun Glimmer mist , dried it all and then stamped over it with a Stampendous stamp Le London script, which is my go to background script stamp! I inked it up but then took a little bit of the ink off with a baby wipe! After stamping I distressed the edges with Iced spruce ink just so I caught a little bit of the grey that is on the frame of the flowers! Then I started putting bits and pieces together ! Initially I wanted to go with an all "pinky" card but I made up my mind and added blue lace and blue ribbon then I also stamped a butterfly to match them! I went to my "antique magazines cupbord" and found some old text with gothic letters and to my kitchen to get some waxed baking paper ( don't have the fancy TH one) and then I was almost done.....well yesterday I got a package of German scrap - it is really hard to get that thing! I had to order it from the States and it is called GERMAN scrap! Hello??!? Anyway I added a bit of that too!
If you have managed to stay with me till now I imagine you are fast asleep at your desk, ha, ha what was I thinking talking so much about a card - honestly sometimes I just need to talk about crafting! I only have you bloggers to talk to about this! So bare with me!
Have a lovely weekend I will be back with you soon!
Lots of hugs to all
