Hi everyone, and thank you for popping in today. Its wet and grey (kinda basic grey) here in Somerset, Uk. The perfect day to stay in and create some smoky slate racoons holding some pretty balloons.
I don’t know about you, but receiving happy mail has been the highlight of my day – its good to know in these troubled times that others are thinking of you.
During the whole of April I have been running a Coffee and Card Club in Your Home. This has been brilliant and there is an upcoming May kit, but I will tell you more about that later.
Today’s card and video – yep a video from me. Please be gentle, these are the first ones I have ever done. Anyway today’s card sees a pair of smoky slate racoons holding some gorgeous blue balloons filled with love and hugs.
The layers for this card are:
- Smoky Slate base 5 7/8th” x 8 1/4″ – score at 4 1/8th” on the long side
- Basic Black Layer 3 7/8th” x 5 5/8th”
- Whisper White Layer 3 5/8th” x 5 3/8th”
We focused on The Special Someone stamp set this month. All the images are stamped straight onto the whisper white layer and then coloured using water colour pencils.
This gorgeous card is part of the set of 10 created especially for my Coffee and Card Class in Your Home in April. My customers got all they need to make these cards including 10 envelopes.
I dont know about you but I love to share the sunshine and sending a card is one way to bring some sunshine into someone’s day. Write in that card and let them know you care. For me knowing that by making, writing and sending a card can bring happiness to someone is a huge and brilliant feeling. What better thing can there be than to bring happiness to someone and to show you care. #sharesunshine
