Good morning sweet friends. My apologies but I plumb forgot to list last weeks Day of Giving winner but I managed to get the name posted yesterday. If you don’t mind, please have a look and see – there are a couple of weeks of cards waiting to be claimed. And we’re back to Friday again and a new card for Day of Giving Friday. Nature sure conspired as it often does, but yesterday brought a packed menu of weird weather with hot, cold, wind, rain and hail – I lost a large branch from my tree also. No worries, today I’m sipping coffee looking out on the rain.
How It’s Made
I took a patterned background and cut it a couple of times and removed all chads replacing them with random chads to make a different background. I wish I had natural light today to show you how it really looks, but rain has claimed the last couple of days. I left some of the chads out for a more distressed look – the background die is Spellbinders Grate Effect. On top I layered a horizontal die – Spellbinders Diamond Floral and two tails of ribbon through the diamond slots. Over the top of the diamond slots, I tucked in the embossed circle from Spellbinders Blooming Collection and used the left over circle cut to stamp my sentiment from Quietfire Design – With Heart.
About Day of Giving Friday
Although I normally share from a large stash of cards, every now and then a new card is up for grabs. It happens every Friday, where I give away a card to a randomly picked reader who leaves a comment in our conversation about a thought provoking prompt I dream up to discuss – here’s a link to my FAQ’s just check out #11. For your comment today – What’s a special tradition you observe to celebrate Easter?
