First post for the new year so before I get to my card, I want to wish all my followers and on-line friends a wonderful 2016!!!! I hope everybody had a very blessed Christmas time and that the new year is treating you very well so far!!!!! May this year be filled with blessings and all that make you happy and may you have much time to be creative!!!! Over here the schools have started on Wednesday so we're back in our normal day to day routine. I can't believe that the year-end holiday is over and that the boys have started with a new grade!!!! We really enjoyed the holiday, it just went by too quickly!!!! But I have to say that it was so nice to be back at my craft table this morning to make a card or two!!!!
I'm sure many of you know about the new Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge started by Ka.
I've made the following card using the bottom line:
'Background Stamping - New - Shaped Frame'.
Bg stamping done with three bg stamps by Glitz. Stamped without using an acrylic block.
Flower stamp from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
Flower coloured with my new Graph'It alcohol markers. I found them at a local stationary shop that sells them individually, but they are quite expensive so I bought only four to start with - will collect all over time - I struggled a bit to do the blending nicely, but hopefully it will get better with time.
Frame cut with ruler and craft knife.
I have to make sympathy cards for a florist/gift shop who sells some of my cards so my Afrikaans sentiment says: 'Heartfelt Sympathy'.
That will be it for now!!!!
Thank you so much for popping in - your visits and comments are always appreciated!!!!
Have a great start to your weekend!!!!!
