Happy April Fool!....can you say that? well I've said it.
Who thought that when we all said Happy New Year 3 months ago this is where we would be today! ...but.....life is full of challenges..(.plenty in blogland too..lol) and we all moan that time passes quickly so I am looking forward to the day when I can say...Do you remember when?
I have to admit to having a distinct lack of motivation at present on the crafting front . I have made one or two cards well in advance this year so I wasn't at the last minute...I know by now I should have reached the end of next year with my planned cards but ...I haven't!...and thus having planed I would have more time to play.....that hasn't worked either......life threw us all the same challenge didn't it! ...which we are all facing and attacking in different ways as we do when we make cards for a challenge...we all interpret and create differently...but the end result meets the same challenge. So we will all meet this world challenge and get through it...so stay safe and well...and then we can ALL say 'Do you remember when?'...in due course.
OK sermon over and if you haven't switched off...(like you do with the news after a while.) I have a card to share that has now been received and appreciated.......
It's a Studio light stamp..a collage effect so the work is all done for the stamped background...it's called Stand Tall...can you guess why?
The inking was done with distress inks but I never think to make a note of the colours I use till it's too late...sorry. I stamped it twice so I could fussy cut the flower...colouring only the stem and leaves and layering over the top, and added the Happy Birthday sentiment from Uniko.
I guess you have spent enough time reading my ramblings so till next time the message as always is stay safe and well...and be kind to yourself and each other.....
Thanks for stopping by and the comments you all so kindly leave.
Love and lots of crafty hugs
P.S. Mum loved her card which I actually took a week early (glad I did now) and was more taken with the butterfly than anything else!
