Hope you have all had a great day with some sunshine to make you smile too.
It has been bright enough here for me to spend some time in the garden, weeding. I don't know, you turn your back for a week every summer and the weeds take over!
Weeding done, I headed for the craft room to make this card for a few challenges. There's June's Rudolph Day challenge, run by Sarn over at Stamping for Pleasure. This is a challenge I'd really hate to miss ... fortunately, we have until the end of the month to get our entries in :)
CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge, (Week 130), has for this week challenged us to do something with Christmas greenery - hope this fits the bill there too. Another challenge, a weekly one this time, that I don't like to miss. The topper, cut from a card received last year, depicting mistletoe encrusted with snow seemed perfect. The white embossed card was also reclaimed from an old card. Even the sentiment is second hand, as it was already stamped on the embossed card :)
And then there's Di's challenge over at Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground (Week 78) - where the only requirement to be allowed to play is to use a snippet or two in the making of your project. I never miss an opportunity to use up as many of my scraps as possible, and there's certainly a snippet or two gone into this card.
- White card base
- Docrafts Papermania Silent Night paper pack - one whole sheet and a couple of snippets
- Cart-Us Oval Dies
- A snippet of smooth white card for the topper
- The recycled embossed card
- Seam binding in a beautiful shade of green
And that is it - three challenges in one card - not bad!
I'm off to get out the sewing machine now - got a cushion cover to make.
Take care everyone and happy crafting,
