It’s time for another Addicted to CAS challenge.
For full details of the challengeand to join in the fun please click here.
When I first saw this code word. The first thing I thought of was Sweet Pea. Looove Sweet Peas. Oh yes, the Lathyrus Odoratus. Ok, before anyone gets the wrong idea. I love gardening but I only know the latin name because I had to look up whether sweet pea was all one word!!! Still not sure.
What was interesting though. According to google and something I didn’t know, even though for 30 years I only lived a couple of miles away. The development and trial fields for sweetpeas were initially set up in 1888 in Wem in Shropshire. There you go a bit of trivia. I bet you will all sleep better now you know that! lol! Tracy and Emily in Wem if you call in, I bet you didn’t know that either! he he!
Ok, back to crafting. Here is my little card for this weeks challenge. I hope you like it.
I stamped the sweet peas around the edge of some coated card stock using black archival ink and then coloured in the flowers using a paint brush and some diluted ink from some felt tips. I had a splodge (technical term) so I stamped over it with a little dragonfly. I then added the “Just a Note” sentiment. I then just mat a layered.
Just a bit of news from me. I will be continuing with florence and freddie the house of chairs for my crafting projects in 2013 but I have also started up a new blog just for card making florence and freddie part 2 the house of cards. This will start running in January 2013.
This is my last post for 2012. I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who follows my blog and especially to those of you who call in and leave such lovely comments. Your kindness and support this past year has been incredible and is truly appreciated.
Wishing you ALL a very Merry Christmas and Health and Happiness for the New Year.
