The quotation I have for you today is one of several that the smashing Christine Harrop sent to me. I have been saving them to use for a special day and today is as special as any in my book; we are after all, alive!!
Now to Jenny's card.
So much work has gone into this flamboyant but elegant creation, making it a beautiful keepsake that will be adored for many, many years to come.
Jenny used my 'Grown Border' technique that I posted for you to see on June 22nd, but she has adapted it and I think it looks even better than my attempt. If you look closely you will see that Jenny has linked the 'arms' at the bottom of the border diecut with the top of the border on the previous row. This is very effective and an easier way to join them too.
The K card or Star card can take alot longer to make, but it still is a top favourite among crafters as it allows you to be very creative, even going as far as to create totally different 'scenes' within each section. I love the way you have used different apertures in your card Jenny and have 'recycled' the waste bits from the Parisian diecuts to make the fancy shapes all the way around the edges of them. Totally inspired and a very creative card indeed. Thank you again for letting us see your lovely work.
Thats it for today, I am off for a couple of hours sleep now as I have been up all night again. I just hope this rain has eased by the time I wake because it has gotten really heavy again and the wind is picking up too.
I do hope the weather is nicer where you are and you all have a good day.
I have a card with something a bit different tomorrow; Glossy accents & Microbeads is all I will say for now. Catch you soon Linda xx
