it's been over a week since I last posted, life has been busy and stressful. My dad is currently in hospital so I have been spending lots of time at the hospital and with my mum. I hope my dad will be better soon, it's hard seeing him like this. Anyway, my dad is pretty tough so I am sure he will get through. I had to make a card to get my mind of things and destress. It's a very simple card but I am happy with the way it turned out.
I made this card following an online tutorial which I can't find anymore. I really enjoy taking part in the the CARDS challenges and try to enter every other week. I always enjoy looking at the variety of work Paige includes in the gallery and the challenges are always so different and certainly get us crafters out of our comfort zones. The challenge this week is to include accordian flowers on a card, at first it was hard getting the shape and size right but after some trial and error I got there. I will have a go at making these flowers again in different sizes, I want to try having a scalloped edge to the flowers next time.
The Challenges I have included-
Anything goes in the link up party-Make it Monday
Favourite technique-Pals Paper Arts. One of my favourite techniques is to draw simple designs on my cards to add a personal touch. On this card I have drawn on the stems with leaves.
Hope all my American friends had a nice 4th of July and did something enjoyable to celebrate this special day. I can't believe that its already been three years since I visited America, I postponed my stay to leave back for Sydney on the evening of the 4th.
