More flip cards for you…

Hello,

Today’s post started out as just a short post to give you my friend Laura’s take on the Flip Card I shared with you on Thursday – technique day.  Laura is a friend from the Michael Strong Yahoo Group, and together with her friend Lynette, they made their own versions.  You will have to go onto Laura’s blog https://holmadelaura.blogspot.com.au to check out their versions and more information.  I was delighted to see someone else give it a go, I love both their cards and I particularly love the hibiscus stamp on Lynette’s.

I would also like to thank Laura for referring back to my blog and the information I provided for Technique Thursday.

Laura and Lynette live in America, but in 2014 Laura and husband, Don came to Australia and I was pleasantly surprised when they made the effort to come and visit us.  We live off the beaten tourist track unless you go skiing in the winter or possible bushwalking in the summer.  Most people visit the capital cities and don’t even make it to the National Capital – Canberra – about 110kms from us.  But Laura and Don came down and spent the day with us, and we really packed a lot into that day.  We met them in the morning, had coffee and then took a day trip to Thredbo, did some walking around, and after lunch made our way back to finish the day at one of the popular hotel bistros for dinner.  It was a fun day and I only wish we’d had more time together.  This is just by way of background as to our ‘connection’ and how friendships can start online and develop into genuine friendship.

Anyway, go to Laura’s blog and see all the lovely work she has been doing and also give Laura and Lynette feedback on their lovely cards.  Thank you for visiting and I’ll be back with more later.

Show and Tell – Make-n-Take

Hi everyone,

I thought I would share with you a card I made for our team training day on Saturday.  It’s using watercolour pencils on watercolour paper and stamps.  I used the masking technique and it seemed to work quite well.  Last time I used the masking technique I got it wrong so this time I made sure I got it right.  I know it looks simple because it doesn’t have all the frilly bits and bobs but I hope you like it.  The green vines are the only thing not coloured with water colour pencil.  Well, that’s all folks for this time, I did have another one from the workshop on Saturday but it seems to be eluding me at the moment.  So I will post that later.  Enjoy and thanks for visiting and reading.

Day 3 of a week of cards

Well it might be Day 3 of a week but it should really be Day 3 of 5 days of cards because we mostly do just the 5 days – Monday through Friday. Anyway, on with the point of this post.  Day 3 – Wednesday, so here is a very simple card, relatively easy to make not much but effective stamping, add a little bling ét voilá, you have a card made ready for any occasion. Why not have a go and make one yourself? Yes, it is a challenge and I don’t have any prizes to give except your satisfaction that you can do it too.  Enjoy and thank you for visiting.

One card a week?

To start off the New Year with my aim to post (on my blog) one card per week, here are two that I will start the year with, I thought it only fair to show both because they were cut and prepared on Christmas Eve but assembled New Years’ eve!  May your 2017 be happier, healthier and more fruitful than your 2016.  Until next time.  Enjoy and thank you for looking.
