A late start for me today.
Yesterday we were out all day and this morning I have been helping John scarify the lawn i.e. John does the work and I empty the wheelbarrows!! This year there is so much moss in the lawn it is an absolute disgrace. He was going to dig it all up and start again but he decided to try this first. On the internet there are many varying opinions on scarifying - some think it is great, others say don't do it at all. Ah well, it can't look much worse than it does now.
I had in my mind a masculine card and when I was going through my stuff I came across this Hero Arts Wordstamp - another of those I haven't used for years. I don't usually use mirri card in such quantities, normally I would just use it as a narrow mat. However, I tried it with some dull gold cardstock but because the dark green was very dark I felt it needed something to lighten it. I stamped and embossed it with detailed gold embossing powder onto more of the dark green card. Before attaching the gold mat I punched out the maple leaves. The other leaves are Spellbinders foliage and then I attached some green and gold ribbon - with a masculine knot rather than a bow. A very simple card but I think it looks quite classy - oops! I meant classic!
I have never entered a challenge before but I thought this might be a good one for the http://fabnfunkychallenges.blogspot.co.uk/
Well that's it for now. Hope to be back tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of your day.
Lots of love from Christine xx
