Welcome back! I am so glad that you are here again! I know I said I'd be taking things slowly, but once I started typing I just can't seem to stop. I guess I must really have missed posting and not doing anything for the last 4 weeks! I am so excited to be on the mend and to be able to get back to doing the things I love without pain! Still no new designs for the next couple weeks, but I am going to get my blog back on track and you're going to see some new to you designs!
I love so much being part of the Christmas Card Challenges Design Team, and I love the stash of cards that I am working on creating ahead of the holiday. I am beyond excited that every person will get a handmade card this year!
This card is from a couple weeks back...here's the challenge that it was for.
I loved this photo, however I wanted to create a card without gold. It's honestly one of my personal challenges, as I don't like the look of yellow gold...a lot of you who follow my blog know that!
Here's the card that I created for this challenge. I am not sure what happened to the side view image of this card.
Here's the front of the card...
I love that while there are traditional colours that I used on this card there are also untraditional elements. I am so happy that the focal point ended up being this old fashioned red truck. I love this stamp and am reminded every time I use it how much I love it!
