I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend, as we are here. The weather has been a mix of sunshine and those April showers and I've been able to nip out during the sunny spells and do a bit of garden maintenance - lovely :)
Today's share is a card made for a monthly swap challenge. The requirement for April was to use words rather than just a greeting so I fell back on one of my favourite Hero Arts stamps - 'Flowers are the poetry of nature'.
Again it's the Icelandic Poppy Seed Head digital stamp from Janey's Digi Designs printed on to smooth white cardstock, Neenah Solar, for the topper, cut out with an X-cut circle die, but this time it's been inked it up in different colours, Adirondack Citrus and Sunshine Yellow, and added a dark gold glitter to the seed heads. To make the brown circle for matting, I did what is becoming the usual and traced around the outer rim of the die and cut it out with scissors ... I recently heard this referred to as a 'faux die-cut' ... another term to add to our crafting dictionary :)
As some scraps of brown cardstock were used in the making of this card, I'm skipping over to Di's challenge at Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground - now at an unbelievable Week 70 - the weekly challenge spot that encourages us to use up every scrap, leftover and snippet in our possession.
That done, I'm off to have a crafty hour or two in the craft space.
Aww! The EM has just brought me a latte ... what would I do without him :)
Take care all and I hope you enjoy what is left of Sunday.
