Where has the time gone?

My last post was in April!

I haven't done much cardmaking in that time - just a few for swaps and close friends.

I did a card swap in May for my CraftMad friends - the theme was polka dots :)

For You

Camera Card

Camera Card
The above camera card was made using a digital file from CraftsUPrint

Sadly, I was in need of a Sympathy card for a friend

Sympathy Card

I used the emboss resist method, using white embossing powder and added colour using watercolour pencils and inks in places.

Sympathy Card - detail

I think I like the effect and look forward to working on this method a bit more :)

Linking this card with:
As You Like It Challenge - Favourite Die
My favourite dies are my Deckle Edge collection - it adds just that nice bit of interest to a square/rectangle shape :)
The ABC Challenge - just as you like it
Anything goes - which is perfect inspiration to try something new!

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
