I have lots of projects to share, but haven't managed to get posts written and posted. Here we have a card I made for my lil' sister. Even though we live in the same province, we are17 hours drive away from one another (or approx. 2 hr on a plane plus the drive to and from the airport). So, we don't typically get to see each other more than maybe 3 or 4 times in a year. But, when she was on mat leave last year (went back to work in August), we spent lots of time together. We made a few visits to her in Southern ON and she visited us in Thunder Bay 5 or 6 times throughout the year and would stay for a week or so at a time. It was AWESOME to have so much quality time with her and my nephew! Our boys are very close as a result and now that she is back to work, I've been missing her so much! I entered this card into the "SCT - 123" challenge at the Scrapbook and Cards Today crop event I attended in Thunder Bay. You had to use: stickers, chipboard, twine, 1 envelope, 2 cardstocks and 3 patterned papers. I did find it a challenge to incorporate this combination of things onto a card, but really enjoyed it and I love the outcome!
I just couldn't resist using this fun sentiment (that was recently gifted to me by Danderella) inside the envelope as it was exactly how I was feeling at the time.
I would like to share at Shopping Our Stash where the current challenge is "stitching". In addition to the distressing, I added stitching along the edge of the patterned paper. I love stitching on my projects and tend to go through phases when I stitch on everything for awhile.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
What I used:
papers: Basic Grey "Out of Print"
chipboard - Michael's
die - MFT
metal embellishments - CTMH
envelope - Maya Road
