LIFE IS TOO SHORT

Good morning crafty friends

Under current restrictions I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend.  The sun was shining all weekend, lovely to see and it got hubby making a start on our garden

  
I love using distress oxide inks and, again, I've used colours that you'll have seen  me use on many other cards of mine.  I must change that!

I coloured plain white cardstock with the 3 inks then heat embossed the sentiment and floral decoration

This was then adhered to a slightly larger black panel and finally onto a 6" square card base

I'll complete the inside and envelope at a later date


I actually made this card first and when finished, no, that's not quite true, once I'd heat embossed the image I knew it was too heavy for the card, but I continued to finish it

You can tell I didn't heat emboss the sentiment as I thought it would make the card totally overpowering

INGREDIENTS:
  • broken china, picked raspberry, twisted citron oxide inks - Ranger
  • sentiment/Sometimes - Woodware FRS904
  • stamped images - unknown 
Thank you for popping by today

  2. Hi June this is a stunning pair of cards. I love them both. We had a good long walk yesterday. We are so lucky that there is a Country Park in walking distance of our home. I hope you enjoyed your time in the garden. Take care. Hugs Jackie

    1. Thank you Jackie. It's good when you can go out for walks, I'm confined to the 12 weeks, I don't mind as the alternative is not worth thinking about

  3. Like you - we spent time in the garden over the weekend - sorting out, tidying up etc etc!! Very pleasant - but it took me away from my Christmas cards!!!
    Two lovely cards - distress oxides do give a nice finish!

  6. Thanks June for sharing these cards - nice and simple for posting too !! We live in the country so nice walks are no problem and make a change from the garden !! We see very few people when out and can stay well away though it is nice to be able to talk to them for a minute !!

    1. Thank you Sue. I miss living in the country so much. My youngest brother and sister in law were walking past our house today, he 'phoned me to let me know so hubby and I went in the garden and had a chat with them. That was such a nice change and I must have been at least 10' away from them

  10. Two lovely cards, June. The sun has still been shining here again today and it's been good to get out for our daily walk. Not being able to use a car has meant we've had to explore the local area and we've found places we never knew existed! xx
