I hope you're all enjoying your weekend. The sun is just starting to poke its head out from behind the bank holiday clouds - I'm not holding my breath mind you!
Poor weather + other half at work all weekend = peace and quiet time for crafting! So that's what I've been doing :)
I am attempting to post this months' Viva La Verve challenges in order this time, even though I started off with Week 4's sketch! One day...one day!
I was inspired by the colour story over at the Play Date Cafe this week. It's been quite some time since I've entered a PDC challenge so I'm pleased that I've got round to it this week :) I HAD to play along with this colour combination. My best friend is getting married in three weeks time and I made all her wedding stationary. Her colour scheme? Black, white and lime! I have a whole bunch of black, white and lime card around me so it would've been criminal not to enter this challenge!
So, here's my card;
I know it's not a 'splash' of lime per se, but I'm hoping that I'll get away with it :) (I'm pushing my luck lately huh?!)
I have made this card for a dear friend of mine who lives in Australia. We used to speak via email most days, but recently life has got a bit busy for both of us and we've lost touch a bit. I got a wonderful email from her yesterday saying how much she misses our chats and so I thought I'd send her a card to let her know that I miss her too :) Shame it's going to take so long for it to get to her!
Because I didn't want the bow to get ruined in transit, I have made this box for the card to go in;
I really hope she likes it :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend guys, whether it be long or short :)
