Card for Mum

>> Tuesday, 13 July 2010

Hello everyone, I hope you had a lovely weekend. We had some beautiful weather in Kent so we spent a lot of time in the garden; me sitting under the umbrella and Thomas shooting down the slide into his paddling pool. I also had a fantastic girls night out on Friday. I met some friends in London and we went to see Sister Act at the Palladium. It was fantastic! My friends' neice has one of the starring roles so we were a little bit biased but the music was brilliant and such a great 'feel good' show. If you get the chance to go I would highly recommend it.



Onto todays card and I've used another gorgeous Sarah Kay image to make a card for my Mum's birthday. She is coloured with distress inks and I've just realised I forgot to add stickles to the flowers (will do that in a bit). The paper is a favourite from the DCWV Linen Closet collection and I've inked all the edges with distress inks. The flowers, pearl sprays and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the 'happy birthday' sentiment is by Wild Rose Studio. I ran out of time tonight but tomorrow I plan to make an envelope box using Heather's tutorial. If I remember I'll add a picture to this post.

All of your cards are beautiful Sharon. They are full of intricate detail and you seem to have endless inspiration. (We're thinking of holidaying in Kent next summer so I hope it's something in the water!)

Hi Sharon, I have been just admiring your beautiful colouring style with the distress ink. I think I don't know any body else who does as pretty colouring as you. Kim Piggott is close to what you do. But you are still my favourit :)

I also use distress ink, but it will not look as clean as your colouring. I think the paper makes a big difference. What kind of paper do you use and where can I buy the paper ?

Thanks for sharing and if you have time hop over to my blog, I'm sharing some sweet candy !

Hugs,
Melanie-Jane
