day 8 - chalks


well just one photo shot today. to tired and lazy. Did a 1/2 scrapbooking thing which was a lot of fun. but tonight I needed a sympathy card so this is what I came up with. Used versa mark on the background then added some light pink (sorry didn't write the colors down this time) and went over the versa mark to pop them a little more. on cream I stamped the butterfly from Stampin' Up's Something Marvelous set, with versa mark then rubbed on a darker pink. love how that sticks.

Then added the saying and some little heart brads I had. Decided it needed a little something else so did the paper piercing around the butterfly and added some white gel pen then pop dotted it on the paper.

I should note that when ever I make a card I almost always make at least 2 figure it takes 1/2 sheet of paper might as well use the other half.

It's lovely! I want to do more sewing on my cards this year. I'm back from our holiday trip and our company has (finally:) gone home so maybe I can get back to being a regular visitor:) Happy New Year!

This is a pretty card - I can never get on with chalks but every time I see a nice card like this it inspires me to have another go.
