Ack, it's Sunday evening. Another weekend done which means another work week starting. I'm starting a project tomorrow that takes me away from home. Hotel life for the next couple of weeks. Not my favorite. I will be back home on Friday evening, but away again the following week.
Since I will be away, I wanted to get cards made to submit to a couple of challenges. I rarely post for two challenge in the same blog post, but that's what I'm doing here.
First up is a card that I made for the current Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.
The background is made using the Concord & 9th Butterfly Love Turnabout Stamp set. The banner element is dry embossed with the SU Country Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder and the wooden butterflies are SU Butterfly Elements. Once the background panel was completed, I cut it out with the largest Die-namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle die and glued it to a Purple Posy card base.
The second card is for this week's Paper Players Challenge where Anne Marie has a Heat Embossing theme this week.
For this card, I used most of the same inks as on the first card. The stamp set is the Blooms Turnabout set by Concord & 9th. Once the background was dry, I heat embossed the sentiment using both Memento tuxedo black then VersaMark ink and clear EP. The hexagon and flower elements are from the C&9th Modern Frame stamp and die set and they are cut from SU coordinating card stocks. This one is embellished with SU Purple Posy faceted enamel dots.
My Shingles have gotten much, much better. Not quite as sore and the rash is starting to go away. I slept much better last night than I have in the past two weeks. Guess I'm on the mend!
Thanks for looking, and have a super nice week!
