Happy Friday evening and welcome to my world. Been MIA for a couple of days. Wednesday we drove up to Greensboro, North Carolina to meet my blog buddy, Candee. We met at Betty's Scrapbooking Store and our DH's had a good ole chitchat while we shopped & visited. We had a fast lunch of southern style Turkey BBQ. Yummy. The weather was rainy as we left South Carolina and had a couple of slow-downs enroute, so not the best driving conditions. The rain had ceased on the return trip, but the wind was gusting over 40mph. That was not a pleasant drive coming home either. Yesterday we just veg'ed out and today was pretty much the same.
Extending a warm Southern Welcome to Nicky of Stiggy's Crafts who has joined as my latest follower. Thanks, Nicky for jumping in the list; please do pop over to say Hi to Nicky and enjoy her fabulous blog.
Here's a card to share.
- PurpleDaisyDesigns image - think I got this at a stamp show. I love Pandas & Koalas - but don't find either easy images to color. Even looking at a picture. Stamped on a white snippet of Xpress paper. Matted with a kraft snippet from a stamping boo-boo which was large enough to mat this image. Used Copic C110 black to outline around the kraft edge & raised on dimensional foam.
- C/Bug Bamboo EF brayered (lightly) with Memento Pear Tart, then Bamboo Leaves. Was trying for a streaky sort of look to the background to allow white embossed bamboo to take center stage. (the white glare up in the top left corner is because I snapped the photo at night with an Ott light and the way the picture had to be positioned, created this glare. There is a lighter coloration up in that area anyway).
- Kraft snippet mat for the Elizabeth Craft sentiment - die cut is also a snippet. C110 black edging around this piece, and popped up with dimensionals. Pretty easy card.
With several snippets, I'm off to see what's doing over at the Snippet Playground where the gates are still open for just a few more hours. I'm hoping Little Parsnip will like these bears, and let me in. Why not get something done quickly ( I know you have some snippets!) and hop on over the pond to see what the gang is up to? There's sure to be fun and always lovely folks who have shared some awesome cards & projects. Plus a little cuddly white bear to make you welcome! C'mon OVER!
As always - thanks for stopping in, and have a wonderful evening. Hugs.
