Hello and thank you for stopping by!!! First of all I want to wish all of you a wonderful and successful Year 2014!!! I know I have neglected my blog very very much in the past year, but I can't change the past and so I will just try to be a better blogger this year. I won't promise blogging on a regular basis but I have a few cards that I made that I would love to share with you.
So here is the card I want to start my new Bloggingyear with:
The image on the card is from the new actual Launch of LOTV and is called James-Butterflies. I colored him with my Ranger Distressinks and cut him out with the Labels 2 Die from Crafts-Too and embossed him too with my Cuttlebug.
The backgroundpaper I used on the card was made by using my new Hexagon-punch from Stampin Up that I got for Christmas from my amazingly talented and generous friend Annette! I used paper from the Linen Closet stack from DCWV and punched out the hexagons. I inked the edges of all the hexagons with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give it a more finished look. I glued them down randomly on a piece of cardstock and inked the edges with the same vintage photo Distressink from Ranger. Then I used a brown marker to draw all the sewing-lines arround the hexagons.
Cut the paper in 3 pieces and added a few nice embellishments such as metalic brads, brown ribbon and a vintage wood-button I got from a friend once.
To finish the card I used a sentiment from the LOTV Everyday Grungy Messages set.
Please let me know what you all think! As today is National Hugging Day I send you all lots and lots of hugs :)
Have a blessed day and HAPPY CRAFTING!!!
I would like to enter this card into the Monthly Challenge of LOTV
