A Birthday Wishing Willow.
Apologies in advance for the last minute nature of this post (but you know me). All week long I knew I wanted to post an entry into this week's The Shabby Tea Room Challenge, because I thought the inspiration pic was super lovely, but as per my usual...I plum forgot. I forgot that is, until earlier today, that I had intentions of creating something for this challenge. You should have heard my scissors clicking and Cuttlebug clanking (yes, it is that old). Who wants to bet that not a one of The Shabby Tea Room members will even have time to pop over to take a peek before it's too late? I don't like my chances. Oh well, what can you do (besides post earlier in the week)? My mojo has been rather lacklustre of late, so I went to Melissa Phillips' blog hoping for a kickstart via a CASE. Golly is she ever good for that. But despite the rev-up I got from ogling her cards, I realized that I didn't have much by way of supplies to match Madame's cards exactly, so I created my card from a mishmash of "near enough" crafting supplies that I had hanging about. The willow is from the fantabulous Waltzingmouse Stamps' Blessed By You set. Talk about a goodie, chock-full of really special sentiments and, of course, that natty willow tree. The other bits and bobs are from Papertrey Ink.
The brief for this week's The Shabby Tea Room Challenge is to create a project inspired by the following photograph using White or Cream, Neutrals, Silver and Glitter. Ooh, and if you squint, you might just spy the glitter I placed on the corrugated layer at the top of the card and the willow is bedecked with silver discs, just in case you were wondering. *wink* I have complied, really. Bit of an odd time for me to go the less is more route now isn't it? Talk about a recipe for gorgeousness, that inspiration pic. Not sure how great mine will taste though.
But most of all, thanks for cruising by. I appreciate your visits so.
