My Dad's funeral yesterday went well, the weather was dry and thankfully his grandkids didn't drop him on the way into the Chapel of Rest! I am home now as looking back I have really been overdoing it .. .. and now I've stopped I ache all over with the ME kick back. I am going to force myself to rest but I find it hard to do nothing and just sit and twiddle my thumbs all day, so I've been trying to do a little craft although my mojo obviously left the building whilst I was away and I am waiting for the return!
The cards I'm sharing with you today are the ones I made last week and took down to Mum. They are each just 4" square and I wanted simple designs. This first is my personal favourite but perhaps a bit modern, I know Mum likes the other two. The stamp is an old one from Hobby Art and I coloured with Copics using my new RV63 and RV66 pens - loving those raspberry pinks!
This one, and the one below, use old Penny Black stamps, again coloured with Copics and using those raspberry shades again. On this card and the one above I've used a square Nestie to emboss a frame for the image as well as cutting card mats, the texts are all from a clear Hero Arts set.
I am so out of touch I'm not sure if there are any challenges that I could enter with these cards. I did see that the Oldie but a Goodie challenge is an anything goes theme this week so will enter at least one of my cards with them.
