A Card

Hi All. Hope your day is going well and lovely to have you find time to visit Jumbled Crafts--thank you.

I'm pleased to say that our buffet lunch yesterday went really well and everyone went home happy :) It was all alcohol free so the happiness was for real. We did have wine and beer but no one wanted that-just the Shloer stuff in various flavours.The weather was beautiful so we could use the garden as well as our small house which made life easier.

Today I am showing a card I have made to share with a few of my favourite challenge blogs.

At Craft-room Challenges the theme is 'Wedding Anniversary'. Country View Challenges have 'Stencil It' this time and That's Crafty have masks, stencils, templates.

The background for my card is by Astrid who is so talented and kind. She shares her ideas with everyone and also shares lots of her beautiful artwork as freebies.

I used part of a stencil by Imagination Crafts and used PA Grunge Paste. The flower and leaves I made and also the sentiment. I have had the glass jewels for a long time so thought I would use them to match the green of the leaves.

Thanks to Astrid that was all I needed to do to make this card look special

Have a great day

Love Chrissie x
