What I did on a wet Bank Holiday....

...enjoyed a very wet day at Sherwood Pines! We were wet through from the icy hail showers but we couldn't have had more fun looking for bugs and slugs under logs and playing baseball in what seemed liked subzero conditions! The bugs, by the way, had more sense and buried themselves well and the score...a draw, of course! The picture above shows Max at his happiest...covered in mud on the playground.

But after warm baths and bed for the kids, I actually settled down to make cards on my first Bank Holiday off in ages!

I wanted to make something quick....because it's been a long day and I've had these flower stickers knocking around for ages! I actually got them on the front of a magazine so if it all went wrong in my quick crafting session....not a big loss :-)

But I think they turned out quite well. I've used the popular easel card in A6 size.

To do this, you need to cut A4 card in half, longways. You then score one of the halves at A4 half fold and A4 Gatefold. The other half you need to cut in half to make two A6 size toppers.

For "Get Well Soon", I've used a brown and turquoise colour combination. I've added texture by running the brown card through my Bigshot with the Swiss Dots folder.

For "Just a note to say...", I've used a brown and pink colour combination. I've used Anita's spotty ribbon to cover the join of the cards and added a button threaded with string to the front.

For "Happy Birthday", I've simply used a jade green matted onto white and added an accent button.

Hope you like them....

  1. I'm quite frankly amazed at your cards, Lind. They get better and better. And I love the way you write too. Keep going!


Thanks for looking
