This morning I planned on making a "Quick" card....I know better than to say the "Q" word, because for some reason, when I say quick, it never is. This card will be posted tomorrow to my friend Thelma. I can share this as Thelma doesn't have a computer....I try to make her one or two cards a month and this is the second card for May....
Cathy at Cathy's Card Spot. She gave me this idea and here's what I did. My newest embossing folder is the one I used on this card. I love the bricks. Next time I will try inking them, but remember...I wanted this to be quick. The window and the flower box are Memory Box dies...two of my newest. I really like them. Now here's where not so quick came in. I decided to build a little room behind the window. I found a graphic and framed it in an oval for a painting on the wall. I recently purchased the Memory Box lamp and I wanted to use it . To add a bit of dimension I ran the shade through an embossing folder. I like it, but it's not really very noticeable. Here's where not so quick really came in. I added plastic to the windows for the glass and then added lace for the curtains. I liked it, but the lace covered up was was behind the window. So I decided to tie the curtains back. Normally an easy task, but not today! Then I added greenery to the flower box and tried to create some tiny flowers. This is as tiny as I could make them. All in all, I like the finished card.
I also made another sympathy card. I really wish these cards weren't needed, but sadly they are.
Stamping Ground and see what the others have been up to this week. And be sure to leave a comment so Julia knows you stopped by.
My window card is totally snippet made and most definitely Cathy inspired. My window and flower box is the large one which didn't leave much room for more than the window and the flower box. . I'm off to link to Pixie's Crafty Workshop. This blog is fun to follow. The beauty that comes from snippets is amazing. I have to say, I'm using bits and pieces of other projects that I probably would not have done before meeting Di. So, check out what everyone's been doing. And if you have a minute, join us on the playground and take a swing on the swings, or join us in a game of tag.
Until next time...Hugs and Happy Crafting,
