Hello everyone, a little cooler now, but personally I enjoy the hot sunshine. Another weekend upon us and another challenge over at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. This weeks theme is 3 Ribbons and has been chosen by my blogging buddie Cathy. I had to open up my new pad of My Minds Eye, Bloom and Grow. These papers are gorgeous and the colours are so fresh. Dont think I've done a green/orange combo before but they work a treat. Gorjuss has been coloured with Promarkers and highlighted small area's with Smooch Paints. I had to use my new MS Border punch and all the little confetti hearts that were left over, I used my quickie glue pen and added then to either side of Gorjuss just as extra embellishment. I have hand tied a bow and the other 2 pieces are on the right hand side of the card. I used a sentiment from WOJ and have distressed all the papers with an olive green chalk ink pad. All the other bits are out of my stash.
This insert is just the most perfect match. It is again from Extreme Designer Inserts from Bearly Mine Designs. It would take me forever to create an insert as beuatiful as this by hand and to have the matching colour ready and waiting at the click of a button is most definitely a plus. It is available to purchase from Bearly Mine Designs and free P & P within the UK.
I do hope you can play along in this weeks challenge. Last weeks challenge was another great success and we love seeing what you come up with. Dont forget to see what inspiration the rest of the DT have to show.
Thanks for looking and am sure to be back with another card soon.
BTW, for those who have been asking, our house is still on the market. A few viewing and I cant believe how fussy peeps can be. We had a lovely elderly couple come look the other day. Said they loved it and was on the short list, then when speaking with the agent this afternoon, they now say they are no longer interested as the living room is in the wrong place!!! OMG. Sorry, thought most living rooms were at the front of the house, after all, all the other matching houses in the road have the same layout. It is getting frustrating though as we have lost the gorgeous house we had our eye on. But I've my eye on another and am taking hubby for a viewing today, though told myself I must not get attached as its all too stressful.
