The image is a very old stamp by Elusive Images from one of the Oriental sets so possibly a fantasy flower. Anyway, I've coloured with blue Copics B21, B24, B26 & B39 and a little bright pink RV34 & RV66 in the centre of the flowers for uplift. For the leaves and stems I went for a blue green with BG72, BG75 & BG78. I've inked around the edge of the image with Pumice Stone DI and also used it to edge the patterned paper.
Here's the card:
Plenty of white space so Mum could add a personal message for her friend.
Crafty Cardmakers have a blooming challenge running so I can enter my card with them.
On the home front I am sad to say there is no change and no news .. .. I have tried to phone but my calls are either being ignored or the reception is so bad where DH is that they are not being put through .. .. I wonder? I have also tried emailing but that got bounced back .. .. still, it was a pleasant enough weekend. Jason's girlfriend joined us and the two of them worked hard at levelling off and tidying up the garden. We now have the space for cars off the road, once the surface has settled and we decide what kind of hard landscaping to put down. Jason is designing and pricing up for a car port, possibly with a green roof .. .. sounds good and will make up to the environment for the hard landscaping we plan instead of the lawn!
I have still to start my DT cards for this week .. .. my mojo has definitely done a bunk so I'm not sure what I'll come up with. Hopefully this evening I can set too and at least make a start. The builder came back today to sort out some of the major cracks so I have dust sheets over the furniture in the bedroom until he finishes the job tomorrow .. .. then I will have to paint the wall again - along with the laundry room and Jason's bedroom - such a hassle!
