Saturday Stuff

Just had to make a card for the current Time Out challenge because it says 'hello' and I'm going to send it to my new One Little Word penpal.

Here's the inspiration photo:

Say Hello: Perk up your home with a friendly welcome sign. For an added boost, choose a bright, funky color. Source: Instagram user decorame

And here's my card:

I stamped the hardwood background twice, once in early espresso and again in potter's clay, then brushed over in toffee crunch to get the mellow in between colour. I then die cut the hello from the hardwood stamped card and used the negative matted onto orangy red card.

It needed to be a fairly flat card as it will be winging its way to the US so I simply added a couple of sprinkles and a flower and circle die cut to finish it off.

Stamps: SU, Hardwood
Inks: SU, early espresso; Memento, potter's clay & toffee crunch
Dies: Clearly Besotted, hello; Cuttlebug, flower
Embellishments: Doodlebug, sprinkles, day to day & blue jean asst.

And as I was speaking of my One Little Word, which is REAL, I thought I'd just share this page I've made for my new grandson's album as it features some of the really important people in my life using digi products from Ali Edwards.

This is the first time I've tried to put photos into a circle and I'm really pleased with how they've turned out. There's a whole load of inspiration using these circular sentiments on Ali's blog - here.

Well that's me done for today, thanks for dropping by. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and keep crafting!
