I have a Hero Arts stamp that is called Woodgrain Flower. I could enter this challenge - there was just time... so a quick little card came about.
I stamped the image with Versafine Vintage Sepia onto white card stock and used a large Spellbinders scallop die to cut it out. I gently coloured the flowers with watercolour pencils as I knew I wanted to pop the big flower. The red and blue felt flower has been sitting in my container of flowers for some time...just waiting for the proper moment to get used. The flower was cut with a Spellbinders die and joined with a sparkly brad. I cut the Chocolate SU card to fit the circle (4 3/4 x 4 1/4 in).
Well I was pleased to see today, this card made the cut for the CREATE showcase. It's quite exciting when someone else likes you card! So a big thanks goes to Virginia, for reminding me and inspiring me to enter.
Exciting times in New Zealand today.... tonight is the opening ceremony for the Rugby World Cup. Thousands of tourists have arrived to follow their teams. 20 teams from all round the world have converged here to play...( including USA, England, Ireland, Wales, France, Japan, as well as some smaller nations) Rugby is BIG here in New Zealand and it's hoped our team ( All Blacks) will win... but we'll just have to wait till 23 October to see who makes the finals. Tonight as part of the opening, there is going to be a 12 min Fireworks display. We are heading to the carpark at Hubby's work to watch. His building looks out over the harbour so we should get a good view.
Well time to head off for another walk! Did .9km ( just over half a mile) this morning and will do it again this afternoon. Plus had a outing this morning. Yvonne took me to get my bloods done and we pottered around some shops and had a coffee. Luckily the weather is superb. Very warm and sunny. Long may it last!!!!
