I hope that you are all having a wonderful weekend. I have been very creative this weekend, and I managed to get six cards made between yesterday and today. :O) Needless to say I am one happy girl at this very moment.
I decided to start this week off with a card I made for the retro sketches blog that I just discovered. I was checking out a few of my favorite blogging friends when I cam across a post that was for this blog. Of course I just had to check it out and I instantly had an idea as to what I wanted to do for my card.
I have some wonderful crochets flowers that my sweet friend Amy had sent me last year for my Birthday, and like most of us I have them all stored in a very safe place at my desk. Up until today I had never intended to use them as they are very special to me as Amy's Sister Jacqueline makes them by hand., :O) So as you can guess they have been in the hoard drawer for months.
So to keep this short, I did indeed pull these beautiful flowers out and used them to make this card for the Retro Sketch #47 challenge. You will see that I didn't even pull one Copic marker for this card. 'Gasp!' However, I love love, love how this one came out. I also up-cycled some Prima flowers' packaging to use as my design paper behind the sentiment.
I do have to mention one disappointing issue about my blog and that is that just as soon as I can figure out how to do it, I am going to be re-activating my security settings on my comments section as I received over 128 spam comments this weekend on a post that I had done in 2010. It took me over an hour to go in an delete each and everyone of them that I could find, and it is just too much. So, if you are one of the few of my followers that hates putting in those annoying words and numbers, I hope that you will forgive me the inconvenience and still comment as you all mean the world to me and I love hearing from you so much.
|Close up of these gorgeous flowers! Thanks again Amy.|
|What do you guys think of this? I don't have a stamp,|
so I print this then I cute it out with a Spellbinders die.
Jerry thinks I should put this on the back of all my
So with all that, I hope you all have a great start to your week, and I will talk at you tomorrow.
Hugs, Lisa G
