Another Mountain

Hi!  Here is my third offering for Darren.

My Card

Click on image to enlarge picture

I cheated a little and used the mountain stamp again from Our Daily Bread Designs  but it just seems so perfect for the occasion.  This time I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black and die cut it with SB Resplendent Rectangles.  It just fit the die almost exactly.   I then die cut the Bazill Bling black card stock with the next die up in the set.   I computer generated the quote from Sr Edmund Hillary about his Everest climb and printed it onto parchment. I then hand cut a pennant shape frame and attached it with tiny foam pads . The frame actually looks wider at one side than the other but that really isn't the case.  The fact is my photo is wonky, which makes everything look slightly off.  The striped card is some I  bought from the craft fair at the Motorcycle Museum from a company called "Pennies Worth" and I bought a few different colours because I must admit to liking stripy card/paper.  A few black gems finished it off.  Again, I can add another quote inside when he decides which card he wants.

Yesterday really was an extremely wet day until about 5pm when the rain cleared and it brightened very slightly.  Still, the gardens (and my well!) needed it.  Wonder what today will bring?

Well that's all from me. Hope you all have a great weekend.

Love and hugs from Christine xx
