Finally I can blog! Hurray.........
I've been trying to get on and post a blog since yesterday evening, without any success, but whatever the problem was it appears to be sorted out now.
So Wednesday, my crafty day. Well it didn't go quite as planned as unfortunately my lovely dad was taken ill. He's in the hospital, but doing OK, and it's just a case of the consultants figuring out what's going on. So with visiting and then trying to pick my car up, and being back at work, it's been a busy few days.
I wanted to get a post in yesterday, but was lacking inspiration so checked to see what challenges were about.
Pals Paper Arts Challenge this week was to create anything for a wedding - a card, an invitation, a place card, or perhaps a favor.
I'd been looking on Split Coast Stampers website as I have been wanting to make a box to hold note cards, so I used one of the tutorials to come up with this box which is to hold 3" x 3" note cards but could be used for favours, though maybe made a bit smaller.
Not the greatest photograph, sorry about that!
I used the In Colour DSP in Blushing Bride as it seemed appropriate for the challenge. I also tried out my Daisy Die and layered the cut-outs in various colours, I had run the card through the polka dot embossing folder first which added a nice texture to the flowers.
Right, tomorrow I am off to my first team training session, so I hope to have lots of lovely things to show you when I get back. I'm really looking forward to meeting some of the other Stampin Stars and getting some inspiration. I haven't yet finished my swaps to take with me, so I'd best get on with that xxx
