Keys and Locks ...

Hello!  

It's time for another challenge at Papercraft Star and this week it's about adding a key and/or lock to your project ... Jan sure comes up with some great challenges ...
As always we have The House Across The Bay sponsoring us and this week our Star Designer is Sylvia ... you don't want to miss her lovely creation and those of the rest of the DT

Being a DT member is great for me ... It challenges me in more ways than I can have imagined ... looking back on some of my early work ... I cringe ... what was I thinking? And though I would never class myself as being in the same league as some of you talented people ... I have grown so much ... 
Why am I telling you this? Simply because I wondered where this card came from ...


... what the idea or thought behind it was ... but it means something to me...

Being a DT member and following your blogs and challenges I've learnt to put colours together that I would never have thought of ... added things to projects I wouldn't maybe have used ...  and yes many times when I get a brief from the blogs I design for ... I am stumped ... the idea, design or concept doesn't come immediately ... unlike so many of you ... 
But I have always been led with my heart in what I do ... my mood or my spirit ....


Like my blog ... my creations tell a story


How about you?

Pink and grey papers are by Tim Hotlz ... keys are cut using a SB die and pewter mirri board... the heart is also a SB die and the paper is a digital by Gennifer Bursett ... card cut on the Cameo and the black velvet border is by Habico 

I hope you will join us this week at Papercraft Star ... we look forward to seeing your creations

Have a happy day

~ Ros ~

Your card is beautiful, Ros. I love your gorgeous layered butterfly! Such a lovely colour combo, too xx

Fortunately, we are high up here. Apart from our lawns looking like swamps, we haven't been too badly affected by the deluge, thanks, Ros. I hope you have been okay and no flooding in your area xx

Diane said...

Beautiful card~beautiful mix of colors!! LIke you I look back at some of earlier projects and think ugh....but sometimes I still think that...I have very good creative moments and then get in a slump, which I am in now...have a nice week!

Ira Huberts said...

That's exactly what makes crafting so special Ros, that there's a deeper meaning behind things (or to me it is, at least). You've always been a tremendously fine and talented card maker and your key card is so beautifully poised and well adorned... Hugs, Ira

What I always love about your style, Ros, is that no one else has cards that look like yours. I think that is one of the very best qualities to have, and your creativeness is far more than what you award yourself. That TH paper has never looked so soft - again, I would never have thought to bring it down to something so small, but it works beautifully ! And I hope you will stay on our DT forever !! Hugs, Ros !! -J-
