Good Morning, My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are we all this Friday morning, Yes Friday already, looking forward
to the weekend? Lets hope the weather keeps up.

Quickie post today as off the mums to do the domestic chores and
won't be home until this afternoon.

Something a little different from me today, be kind!!

1. Using a fancy edged white card blank I matted  it with
dark blue patterned  card ( I know it look like black card
but trust me it's not)

2. On a piece of craft card I created the background  colours
with brushes and a combination of Adirondack Light
Aqua, Cool Peri, Salmon and Pin Sherbert.

3. Next using Tim Holts distress Vintage Photo I stamped the
tree, birds and the sentiment, ( The true meaning of life is to
plant trees under whose shade you do not expect to sit).

4. The ruins are stamps by Sheena Douglas and these
were stamped onto another piece of card, then cut around
and mounted onto the card with foam pads.

I will let you into a secret but you must  not tell anyone
The card did not start out like this, hence the scene
being mounted onto the background. This was
because when I first tried to do the background
I did not inspect it before I stamped the image, once
I looked OMG it was a mess and I was ready to
throw it into the bin when cousin Mary gave me
idea to cut the image away and create another
background. Thanks for the Idea Mary.

To complete the card I added two hessian strips to each end.

I must say I am quite pleased with the outcome.

Well folks that's it from me today
hope to see you back tomorrow.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting.
