Hope everyone had a fab weekend. Mojo still hasn't returned but I'm sure it will once I have finished my mammoth sort out in my craft room, which I am pleased to say is nearing the end. I made by storage unit today using foamboard for all the scraps of 12x12 cardstock. I had a huge storage box filled with odds and ends which overspilled and I never used to go in it. How wasteful! So I have thrown out alot and I mean alot and made a storage unit for easy access to the colours so I will be using up my scraps before cutting into another piece of 12x12 cardstock.
Today's card for the Simply Sassy Inspiration is a special card. I saw the post on Michelle's post reaching out to all us crafty bloggers to put a smile on Haeli's face through a card drive. If you havent read the post, Haeli is a 12 year old girl going through the trauma of a rare type of ovarian cancer and is currently under going chemotherapy. So I decided to use "Hippie Love" available HERE from Funky Kits, and make her a really cheery card. She is also into art so as I have recently had a sort out I will be forwarding a few crafting items to Haeli. If any of you would be willing to send a card to Haeli I'm sure she would appreciate it.
I have distressed the edges and added walnut stain and stardust stickles. I cut the flowers out from the paper and added some glossy accents and brads to the centres. I also cut out a few quicktutz doodad flowers and dotted here and there. She really is a flower power girl.
