Time To …

Hello friends,

I was playing with my dies yesterday and the result is a happy shabby card to share with you today.  The die cut clock is from Joy Crafts and the little bird from Memory box. I painted the bird with my watercolor pencils to match the colors on the card. The speech bubble sentiment is made with my computer as I  don’t have a speech bubble die – something I must remember when going on a shopping spree again!  I added my favorite bunting from the Johanna Sheen signature die range. The rose printed fabric tape  at the bottom is a new addition to my crafting stuff and this is the first time I used some of it on a card. Maybe the card is a little busy but in a way I love the happy feeling of it.

I made the card with the following challenges in mind:

The flower, bow, lace and fabric tape

JC_BackInTime2

The sentiment, bird and banner

  • White cardstock and scraps of blue, pink and green
  • Designer paper (Unknown)
  • Joy Crafts clock die “Back in Time” (6002/0219)
  • Memory Box bird die “Perched Reed Bird” (98160)
  • Joanna Sheen Signature die “Bunting” (SD064)
  • McGill punch “Designer Leaf Spray” (P/N 92079L)
  • Computer generated sentiment
  • Paper doily
  • Stick on fabric ribbon
  • Doodlebug design Dooddle Twine “Bubble Blue”
  • Hug Snug seam binding “Queen Blue”
  • Lace
  • Roses
  • Pearls
  • Tim Holtz distress ink “Victorian Velvet”, “Peeled Paint” and “Stormy Sky”
  • Skwiglues glitter “Crystal”

Thanks for visiting today and looking at my card. Tomorrow I am back to work, my little vacation is over. Have a wonderful day and happy crafting.

Regards from South Africa where we enjoy lovely autumn weather.

Amelia
