I very much admire card makers who are good at making shabby chic/vintage cards....Sue and Jacqueline are prime examples but just google " shabby chic cards" and you get a multitude. I was looking through an Australian Card and Papermaking magazine yesterday and was inspired to give this look a go. This is not my usual style but in the end I was rather pleased with the outcome.... even if it took quite some time to come together.
here. Just waiting for my download code so I can save them to my computer.
I am also very pleased with the photo I look of the card. Michelle is having a give away on her blog for a light tent. It looked really cool so I did some research and found a place in Christchurch selling them on Trade Me.... very reasonably price too... so I ordered one and it arrived this week. Its only 30cm x 30 cm but is perfect for a card. It comes with 4 different coloured backgrounds... white/black/blue/red. Plus I'm sure I could make more if needed.
Update on hubby's sister.... she is still hanging in there.... He is flying off to London on Monday evening... arriving mid morning their time on Tues. Praying she will last till then so he can say his goodbyes. His older brother went over on Thursday. A very sad time for them all.
thanks for visiting.... take care
