Today is about...

The weather has been just gorgeous today, far too nice to spend time in my craft room:). Took a picture of the wisteria this afternoon, how often do you see a sky this blue in England in May?
We went plant shopping with a voucher that we got at Christmas (and a bit of help from Visa) so instead of inky fingers I have earth stained fingers.The card that I have to show you came from a lovely crafty day with my friend Val. We had lots of creative plans but again we were slightly scuppered by the weather, we kept escaping outside to enjoy the sun:). I bought some journalling sentiments from Elusive Images, although I don't have a journal:). Don't know why, but they called my name...

This card isn't a million miles from something that Glenda Waterworth (Elsuive Images) blogged when she released the stamps. I put as many sentiments as I could onto a large arylic block in a very loose, sort-of order and stamped it in Dusty Concrd Distress Ink. I sponged Distress Inks onto the background and used a glue pen and Glamour Dust to highlight some of the words. Matted it onto dark purple card and made a flower from a Woodware punch with a bit more Glamour Dust and a silver brad. I made this for Quixotic Challenge's "How Sentimental" and it's also entered for Secret Crafter's Challenge which is No Patterned Paper


  1. Hi Anne

    The black really makes the words pop, and I love the flower.

    Looks like you have had a real spend up. I do love garden centres - almost as much as I love crafty places!! Haha - you always spend a lot of money.

    See you soon.

  2. Wonderful card- love the picture of the Wisteria- and WOW- those are really blue skies for England!!!

  3. Beautiful card, LOVE this design, the black looks fabulous!!!!! WOW gorgeous pictures you shared!!!

  4. Now that is my kind of shopping Anne. There is no better way to spend a nice day than plant shopping. Your Wisteria is gorgeous. I've taken some photos of ours today but it's not as far out as yours, or as big!!
    Your card is gorgeous. I love how you've used all the words, it doesn't need anything else does it.

  5. What a neat card Anne with such lovely sentiments. Love the wistaria too.

  6. Oh fab! Thanks for joining the Quixotic Paperie Challenge this week. Kim
