I can't believe it's almost one week since my last post. It's incredible how a few things added to my daily routine leave so little time to my crafting - and blogging - time.
Anyway, I did not write BUT I managed to make some cards. I'm still into the Valentine/Love theme. It started snowing this morning so maybe I'll make some winter cards this afternoon.
Yesterday, I made this card with colors a bit different from the expected color scheme for Valentines. Looking through my list of challenges, I've found that it is perfect for two of them.
Here's my card:
I love these fat birds in love! This digi is from The Paper Shelter (http://www.thepapershelter.com/), a shop I've just discovered with very sweet images.
I painted them with my watercolor pencils and decided to mount them on a turquoise card instead of a pink one. I used some glitter here and there and couldn't help myself from putting a red touch on the card!
I finished it following the requirements of the two challenges:
Papertake Weekly Challenge:
which has The Paper Shelter as sponsor (how lucky I am!) and which asks for ribbon and pearls. I've used a white satin ribbon I've found in my stash of ribbons and some green and blue pearls.
Aud Sentiment Challenge # 20: http://audsentimentschallengeblog.blogspot.com/2011/01/challenge-20-and-winner-of-19.html
which asks for a sentiment with a Love theme. This requirement was not difficult to follow since it was a Valentine card!
Well, I've a couple of hours to spend on some new projects, I feel so lucky when I can dedicate so much time to crafting and painting!
