My Mum turned 60 recently and in the excitement of sorting her present out in Australia and busyness of life here I forgot to send her a card in time, so I thought I'd better make an extra special one to make up for it being late lol! I used the GORGEOUS colour scheme at the Fab Friday challenge as well as the fabulous sketch from Pals Paper Arts (I think I'll be using this one again - there are so many possibilities with it!).
I wanted to use some new goodies I got in my latest order from the new catty - Kindness Matters and the Fan Fair dsp...
This card was inspired by the insanely talented Teneale, and like her I decided to decorate the inside of the card as well...
I used more Fan Fair dsp for this, including the 60 cut from the sheet with the different tags etc. as well as one of the label images. I added some Summer Starfruit card cut with one of the Finishing Touches edgelits onto a stamped background to match the image panel on the front of the card.
I spritzed the front of the card and the letters with some Vanilla Smooch spray (absolutely LOVE this stuff!!!) for shimmer and sparkle.
Before I go (and seeing as this post is already somewhat about my family) I thought I'd tell you about an initiative my sister is starting up in London. Here's a pic of us together...
My sister Rebecca is setting up a Creative Arts Studio in London, it's going to be a hub where people from all backgrounds can come and use the communal studio space and fantastic art equipment like screen printing tables, darkrooms, Mac Computers, sewing machines etc, to make art, have a coffee and cake in the cafe, and maybe even do a card making class with me in one of the rooms (she is recruiting me!) It is a Community Interest Company, and needs support to get it off the ground, so if you are on facebook, have a look at this link: www.facebook.com/NewTigersHeadStudio and "like" it if you like the sound of it. Support from all corners of the globe are appreciated!
She's a pretty amazing entrepreneurial chick so it'll be great to watch her pursue this dream.
Thanks for stopping by!
