Hello everyone. I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I have been away babysitting at my daughter's since Wednesday evening. We only actually had to babysit all day Thursday and Friday afternoon but since she lives about 2 and a half hours drive away we had to go on Wednesday. Yesterday we just spent some time with them although my hubby was roped into some gardening with Catriona while I stayed indoors with the kids. Today we stayed until Poppy came back from Sunday School and then gathered up our bags and the dog and came home. The dog is very quiet tonight! You can tell I'm writing this on Sunday evening and scheduling my post for Monday!! She is used to Catriona's dog but had never met Catriona's in-laws Weimaraner before. She was only there till Friday afternoon so Maddy and Missy had the kids to themselves again. Oliver is only 11 months old but he loves dogs.
Anyway enough waffle, here is the card I made for Crafty Cardmakers latest challenge which is to use a freebie. I have used a stamp I got with Craft Stamper but you could also use freebie papers if you have any you got with a magazine. And of course you could use a free digi image.
I stamped my free flower stamp randomly on Kraft paper with Versamark and embossed with bright white embossing powder. I edged the Kraft paper with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. The blue DP is from Tim Holtz. I stamped again with Memento ink, coloured with Promarkers and cut out with a nestie. I added some blue organza ribbon across the middle and popped the image on top of it with sticky pads. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards as is the card candy. I also added some jewels from Hobby House and finished off with some blue flowers from my stash. I added some glitter with a Sakura clear glitter gel pen.
I followed the sketch over at Creative Inspirations Wednesday Challenge Blog so I'll enter that challenge this week.
Since I have a day off today to catch up with some washing and ironing I'm also hoping to be able to get some crafting done too. Hope you can join us this fortnight, I'm sure lots of you can find a freebie of some description. Looking forward to visiting your blogs and seeing what you've done with your freebies. If you need some inspiration pop over to the challenge blog at Crafty Cardmakers and see what my talented teamies have done with their freebies.
