A wet weekend.

NB- Photo Heavy Post

It's been a very wet February here in Auckland.  This last  weekend was extremely wet.  So where was the best spot to be.. in the craft room.  I had a few orders to do.  So here is what I got done. 

First up - a card that was actually made last week for a colleague who is going onto Maternity Leave.  She is expecting a little girl


This is my favourite Mo Manning digi stamp.  It's called "Hush"  I used Prismacolor pencils to colour it in. 

Next was the first of 2, 21st cards


I used a Bugaboo digi image with a computer generated sentiment.  I used a Tim Holtz die in the corner and added a punched border

and here is #2

This one was inspired by a card on Pinterest (by Loll) I used a Spellbinders die to make my frame.  I die cut four from white card and one from glittery fun foam.  I also used the fun foam to die cut the 21.  The flowers are an older Hero Arts stamp which was white embossed and then I used some Altenew pink inks to sponge on.  Added some Novu Drops to the centres. 

My next card is one I made for my NZ card group swap.  The challenge was set by Suna, and was to make your own background. 
I made by background by stamping the second layer of the Altenew flower in a pale grey.  I then stamped all layers of the flower and added some accents with my colour pencils.  I die cut all the elements and stamped the additional bunch of flowers.  This is now on it's way south to it's recipient.

Next up is a card order from one colleague for another colleague who is going through a really bad time at the moment..one of her family members is currently fighting cancer with not a good outcome predicted. 

Using a Catherine Pooler stencil with some Altenew inks, a Spellbinders die, a MFT dienamics leaf, a Prisma flower and a sentiment from Rosie's Studio

Well, if you have made this far, I thank you.  Hope you had a chance to getting your craft on over the weekend.

Yes, February has been wet, and today the humidity is a killer - we are not used to 99%, with 28.6 oC!!
Love your cards Dawn - that last one with the stencilled leaves is really dramatic, but they are all lovely
