Hello everyone and a big welcome to my blog's newest followers!
I hope everyone had a good week! Mine was a little rough, but looking up now. I'm a little behind on crafting and blogging as a result, so sorry if I haven't been around for a visit. I'm hoping to catch up with everyone on the weekend.
A new Playing in Paradise challenge begins today and this will be the last of our weekly challenges. Starting on the second Friday in May, we will be having monthly sketch challenges instead. I hope you will join us for those.
For this last weekly challenge, the talented Linda is hosting and she has chosen Springtime Joy for the theme. When I think of Spring, mud and snow mold allergies always come to mind but those don't make for a pretty card :o) so I went with my second thoughts of flowers and yellow (think dandelions).
Paper - Stampin' Up (grey) and Creative Imaginations from the Warm Dots & Stripes Signature Collection (yellow)
Stamp - Penny Black stamped on 300g hot pressed watercolour paper with black Stazon and coloured with Distress inks (scattered straw, black soot, tattered rose, stormy sky, tumbled glass, vintage photo, rusty hinge, barn door and peeled paint). The colouring looks a little washed out in the photo - it is darker IRL.
Dies - Spellbinders Fantastic Flourish two and A2 Bracket Borders one
Other - flower from my stash, button from Bazzill (I think yellow is out of stock, but the clear ones are on clearance here)
The team has made some beautiful projects to inspire you, so I hope you will pop by the Playing in Paradise challenge and check them out. As always there is a wonderful prize up for grabs, so I hope you will join in the fun. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create!
Hugs and happy crafting!
