very quick post for you tonight. It's after 7 and I haven't finished work yet and just took a quick break to feed the pussycats and update my blog :-)
There's a great sketch across at retrosketches this week, it's really unusual and forced me to really think outside of my normal box.
It took me a while to work out what I wanted to do and I wandered off to my crafting storage cupboard and decide to look through my DSP to see if I could find any inspiration. I came across the Winter Frost Specialty DSP and realized that it had a fabulous sheet on it that would work for something other than Christmas.... and then realized that I had a sentiment that would work perfectly from a PTI set I had bought for the OWH card drive. Sometimes.. you just find inspiration in the strangest of places :-)
here's my card:
I die cut a star using my Sizzix star dies and then took the negative image and fussy cut around it to give me the very thin star shape. It works beautifully with the DSP! For the little stars, I used a Simon Says Stamp falling star die. I was trying to make the Baker's Twine feel like the tail of a comet, but I'm not quite sure I was that successful! :-) I do think the card can be used for either gender - so thought it was great for the OWH card drive!
As always, thank you so much for your visits... they really do mean a great deal to me - as do your comments. Warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
