Morning everyone, last day of our long, long weekend. Yes, today, Tuesday was appointed a public holiday as a substitute for Easter Monday due to Anzac day falling on that day. This is also the last day of school holidays. So everyone is out of the house tomorrow.... Wednesday. :-) We have had such perfect weather over the weekend. It was a pleasure to be out and about catching up with friends and family and at home giving gardens some much needed attention. I even grabbed my cuppa, craft mag and towel and sat up the back yard in the shade of a tree. Pretended I was on holidays for a moment. Also took the time to watch the white puffy clouds get blown across the sky.
Okay, time to talk about my card. This is one of the cards I have made for my Swap partner over at Craftmad. This month we swapped cards that were not rectangle or square. You can check out the other creations in the gallery at Craftmad.
I dug out my Octagon Spellbinders and cut several layers of the different papers and card. Thought this shape was perfect for a bee card (honeycomb). I started with a base white card, then black card and then a layer of this pretty new Blue Edge patterned paper called Rosewillow Daisy. Not only is the pattern pretty on this paper, I love the fact that I can choose the smaller version of the design which is attached to the bottom of the main 12" x 12" paper. Hence, the 'Combo Paper' name. Next I printed out the sentiment on the computer and added this cute little teddy bee sticker. Finished with a pretty bow. Next I had to make an envelope as nothing I had was the right size. So thanks to Mel over at Mel Stampz for her 100 envelope templates.
A little reminder that the next Craftmad Create and Chat night is approaching really fast.
Wednesday, 27th April and Kaye is all set to talk us through making a circle album for Mother's Day.
Challenges I would like to enter:
