Have you missed me? It's been several weeks since I've been able to do any crafting, and my visiting/commenting has been severely limited. I miss you! We've hit birthday season, combined with end-of-school-year events ramping up. Between August and October we have all four family birthdays, fathers day, wedding anniversary, as well as many other family/friend birthdays. It's crazy! My eldest daughter plays violin and piano. She is in the school string ensemble, and sings in three school choirs. In the next three months she has several concerts (ensemble and solo concerts) and three exams (violin, piano, music theory). I can't imagine what it will be like when my youngest daughter starts up with the same activities! Every year, we get to mid-December and collapse with exhaustion... luckilly we are in Summer holidays by that stage and can laze around by our pool doing NOTHING, LOL!
Anyway, the reason for today's post is that it is Fathers Day here today in Australia. The best reason in the world to pull out the crafting gear and making a card. :-) The hubby requested that I make a card using the black "riveted steel" look I used on another card (that would be Swiss Dots on black card).
Here it is.
Stamps: Hero Arts Envelope Pattern, PTI Embellishments, PTI Heart Prints. Ink: SU! Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Ruby Red, Old Olive. Card: SU! Soft Suede, Basic Black, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Ruby Red. Paper: Mocha Morning. Dies/Embossing: PTI Tiny Tags, Sizzix (?) Swiss Dots. Twine: Capuccino from the Twinery.
I am entering this into the Asymmetrical Challenge over at Moxie Fab World.
The card is a hit. :-)
Just before I go, I'll share last week-end's birthday cake. Terrible picture, but you'll get the idea.
Hopefully I'll be back again soon!
