Roses card

Hello Lovelies - how are you? I hope you are okay. I had a different kind of day yesterday. Took the girls swimming and then we went to see my mum and dad and afterwards I took Lucy and Penny to their ballet exam lesson. Whilst there I got a text from my mum saying that she had taken my dad to hospital. We went there to see him and it sounds as though he had some sort of cardiac problem - anyway - they've kept him in overnight and we'll have to wait and see how he is later today. He was fine when we left him and my mum stayed with me overnight. Its all a bit worrying.

Me and the girls are off to the Crafting event at Bolton today - my mum was supposed to be coming too but with things the way they are she doesn't feel up to it. Anyway - I hope we have some fun - I'm hoping we get the chance to do a few make and takes. The girls will love that!

Todays card is one I have made for my friend Rose who has a birthday tomorrow.


I made the topper up first by using ripe persimmon DI on a piece of card then stamping the silhouette stamp in black archival. Next I faux bleached the moon - that didn't work brilliantly so I then added some extra while with a white pen! Next I made the background using fossilised amber and ripe persimmon and tone on tone stencilling with a TH flourish stencil. Then I used a sheena stencil with black soot to add more detail and finally used my black soot distress marker and tool to get some splatters on there.


Such a cute image - I just know my friend Rose will like it!

I would like to enter this into the littleclairesdesigns monthly-blog-challenge-57-outdoors

I hope you all have a good day and thanks for dropping by!

Big Huggles!
