Everything Changes and so today I have an announcement to make. After 5 years I have decided to return to the U.K This has been a complex decision however it is made easier by then fact that we maintain a house in the U.K. as Mr Next Door works there lol! There are lots of reasons for this move however I am really excited that in a month or so I will be home and will be able to shop properly! lol
I decided to show a card today that is one of my favourites. Now as I will be organising the move, moving and hopefully setting up a new craft room in the U.K. I will need some time away from crafting to manage it all. Therefore I have been busy making, photographing and scheduling as much work and posts as I can. so for the last few days or so I have been spending as much free time as I can in the craft room.
Today's card is my favourite of all those I have made so far ( as i write this I am looking at a pile of cards and creations awaiting write ups!)
I started, as always at the moment, with the Sue Wilson Californian collection background die. however I wanted to do something different with this and as strange as it may sound I woke up with this card in my mind. I could see small white flowers at each junction of the die, set against a duck egg blue. I got straight into the craft room and created this!
I mentioned the other day that I started a card by getting the different coloured cards and papers out first. Karen asked is that how I usually work and I'm sorry to say its not. I tend to sketch out a card in my mind or on paper based on an idea or a die or stamp. I then work out which colour I think it would work in. A lot of times I start with die cut pieces that are laying on my desk and just play til I'm happy! As I said this card started almost finished as an image in my head.
