In my Thoughts

It is a very quiet Sunday afternoon, the things I should be doing are still waiting for me and I suspect will be waiting a little while longer while I try and find the motivation....but as for card making - never lacking motivation there! LOL!




When I am creating cards I try to think about the different occasions we give cards for - some of them are not always happy reasons - this is the kind of card I have made today - to encourage or comfort someone, letting them know we are thinking of them.




I have used a sentiment from a Stampin' Up set that I was given sometime ago but it has not seen ink until now - I don't know why as I love the sentiments in it.  I have used Tsukineko Memento Peanut Brittle Ink and cut it out using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine and Labels Twenty Nine Nestabilities.  Before removing the card from the Die, I have used it as a stencil and sponged the inside edges, also using the Tsukineko Peanut Brittle.




The patterned paper has been embossed using the Spellbinders™ Dotted Flowers  M-Bossabilities™ folder.



I have also added leaves from my stash, Seam Binding ribbon and now, along with a Mulberry Rose and Want2Scrap bling.
