NBUS Challenge

Hello there ...

A quick post today with a card I'm entering in the NBUS challenge over on the lovely Darnell's blog...


In the midst of all the goings on last week I had a text to say that one of my girlfriends had suffered a mini stroke... I'm making a little crocheted teddy to send to her with the card I am sharing today


I've acummulated a few new dies and stencils that I haven't yet used so I opened a couple to make this card
The die is from The Works and the flower stencil I bought from an online store


I kept with bright and cheerful colours for my flowers and smooshed the die cut leaves in versamark then heat embossed them - I also die cut the leaves in foam and glued them together - not only to give it dimension but it makes it a little stronger for posting. 


Before I go I just want to say a big thank you to the ladies at CAS Watercolour Challenge for my award this week ... As we say in Liverpool "I'm chuffed!"

Have yourselves a lovely day and thanks so much for stopping by my blog today

Wow, wow, wow! You come up with the most creative card designs, Ros--love this! I know it will lift your friend's spirits! Those leaves are some of the most beautiful I've seen & the stencil done in multiple colors is wonderful! No surprise about the pick at CAS WC--congrats! That second row are 3 of my friends, so just shows my good taste & why I don't enter there--haha! Wishing you a more settled week, my friend!

Such a lovely card - and I can't wait to see the teddy, too! A "get well" to your girlfriend from across the Channel, too!

Fabulous bright colors for a cheery get well card. You combined those colors beautifully. Love the leaf die and it looks great with the embossing. That's scary about your friend. We're too young for all this kind of stuff to be happening.

Diane said...

Love all the pretty colors on this one, such a happy happy card, just gorgeous, your friend will treasure it!! Glad your Aunt was able to visit you and hope all is going well with you.....have a wonderful day!!

Marina said...

It's a great idea to cut a layer in foam - great dimension on the leaves and you still get the slightly textured effect of the ep. Love this.

Maria said...

Sorry to hear that your friend suffered a mini stroke, Ros! I hope she is feeling much better. I'm sure she will appreciate the lovely card you made her. The stencil background with wonderful colors is so pretty! And, the gold embossed leaves are so eye catching...perfect!! Take care and have a great week!

This is so gorgeous Ros and is sure to bring some cheer to your friend, especially if it is accompanied with one of your beautiful teddies. I love the colourful background and your leaves look so classy. I would never have thought of embossing foam!

I LOVE the bright and uplifting colors of the flowers, Ros! They're beautifully stenciled, and the heat-embossed die-cut leaves look like gorgeous ornaments. I'm sorry about your girlfriend - she'll appreciate the teddy and the card you made with love. Hideko
