The last few days of beautiful sunshine and agreeable temperatures have made me want to toss the warmer clothes to the back of the wardrobe. Spring is seeming right around the corner, but experience tells me it may well start snowing again next week, so I shall wait a little bit longer before getting the sandals back out. Any threats of snow will not stop me from making spring inspired cards, however! This post is for a card I just finished today.
All out of ideas for another masculine card, I decided to instead go with something reasonably neutral. The recipient of this card is quite fond of green, so that was an obvious choice. Little did I know when I started that I would end up with orange of all colours! Anyway, the card was made and it’s an easel card!
I looked at the challenge last week and decided instantly that I couldn’t enter in the challenge. Why? Because I didn’t have a heart die or anything similar. It bugged me, though. I don’t like being stopped that easily.
Today, after work I decided to get the old fashioned scissors out and cut out a heart shape myself. So here I am, a couple of hours later with a whole new card that I am very pleased with indeed; my entry for the 6th challenge over at Lili’s Little Fairies.
Another week, another challenge at Lili’s Little Fairies. Last week, after my first challenge entry, I had decided that I wanted to try to enter in the next one also, no matter the theme. Then on Thursday I went over and saw what this challenge was on. A masculine card! Oh boy… I was gutted. Having struggled through making 4 boy cards already this month, not only was I completely out of ideas, but there were nobody to make the card for! After lots of thinking, I finally remembered my boyfriend’s wee cousin will turn 9 in March. (Never mind my boyfriend’s birthday next month, that will have to wait as I can’t post that on here just yet, haha.) And thus the card making begun.
