Did you know that yesterday was World Card Making Day?? Happy WCMD!!! I hope you all took some time to get crafty and enjoy it.
I spent the day crafting with some wonderful friends. We had a potluck, some wine, and lots of craftiness! It was absolutely lovely and certainly just what the doctor ordered.
In November, a few of us will be heading to a Stampin' Up! Canada event so we thought perhaps we should put some swaps together. It was a fun way to spend the day but it will also be a fun way to get to know some new people at the event.
I decided to make some Christmas cards (well we all did) and 31 cards later, this is the outcome.
I decided to use 3 different colours, just to change it up a bit - traditional green and red (Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler) and a lovely blue (Lost Lagoon). For the first time, I also used Blendabilities markers to colour basic pearls in order to have beautiful matching embellishments. What a great way to have stunning embellishments that will match any card and so very easy to do! Just colour and wait for it to dry.
As inspiration, I used Monday's Lunchtime Sketch over at Techno Stamper - I loved it.
It is an Anything Goes challenge over at the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge so I will be linking up there as well.
