Here's a very simple card for today - not too much colouring (as you can see!!), so quite easy to produce. Soooooooo how come 'simple' cards are sooooooo difficult to design? This one felt like laying an egg....... it actually HURT! I wander around for hours with pieces of card in my hand, or searching to the back of cupboards for embellishments I KNOW i've got somewhere, or ribbon that may just be the right shade ..... my poor OH doesn't know what I'm up to! He just knows to nod when I put what I think may work under his nose.... (especially when he's playing a computer game.... sometimes I'm not actually sure he SEES what I put there! lol! He's too concerned with shooting the next monster or whatever that is going to pop out at him!
Anyway - it's done now... and believe it or not, is on a navy blue background - though in the photo it looks nearly black. I used an image that came free from PapierSalat Blog - and did what little colouring there is with my copics. Then I hand wrote the sentiment.... that was SCARY! Then I distressed the edges of the image with scissors (new technique for me - first time I've used it... ) I used my snowflake embossing folder for the background and put it all on navy blue cardstock. I finished it off with a snowflake charm from PinkGem Designs, held on with a bit of 'eyelash wool' that I've had in for years... I'm still not sure about the whole thing - think that's because I see such wonderful creations on all your blogs... but there you go..... it's done.
It's going to be cold here in the next few days...... and I've not been too well with diverticulitis again - so think I'll be getting a few more cards done after I've 'battened down the hatches' to stop the wind getting in tomorrow! LOL!
Bye for now - and as are friends say in the US - Happy Hump Day!
