Camo Father's Day

It's summer, it is so beautiful outside and so perfect for walks.. everywhere. I am going to do a shameless plug for myself as I have passed the 200km mark for the Make-a-Wish Trailblaze Challenge, and I am well on my way to the 300KM mark.

I have also reached a halfway point for my fundraising goal.

Did you know Make-a-Wish was still granting wishes through COVID, pretty fabulous in my opinion? They still need our help so please consider donating.

I also have a card to share today, my poor neglected craft room, it really does not get much attention these days. I think it is a downside to my home office/craft space also being my current work office and once work is done it is almost a no-go zone.

This is pretty quick and each card. I picked up some new Camo papers, they look a little like my husband's closet. I used a single page from a 6x6 pack, I cut half a dozen strips in varying sizes then lined them up on a background of black cardstock. The page had double-sided patterns so one side is a larger camo pattern so the two sizes of patterns made a good blend.

I stamped the sentiment on white and added layers of black cardstock and foam tape. I finished with some black gems.

Supplies: White and black cardstock, Paper Rose-Camo Collection, Simon Says Stamp-Father's Day Finds, gems.

Thanks for stopping by,

Good Morning all, sorry I have not posted for a while. I have not been creating much lately but I still have a few cards on my desk that have not been posted y.

This was a napkin card I put together, I love how the Mod Podge highlights all the blue tones in the flowers.

I started with a medium-weight watercolour paper then added a layer of Mod Podge, then added the napkin layer and then some more of Mod Podge to seal it.

Once the panel had dried I used a rectangle die cut to created a smaller panel.  I layered the panel with some black cardstock die-cut with a stitched rectangle die-cut.

I stamped the sentiment then added a layer of black cardstock cut from a stitched die-cut then popped it up with foam tape. I used some ribbon and a button as embellishments.

Supplies: White and black cardstock, Twilight Collection - Napkin, Penny Black - Strength, Simon Says Stamp - Stitched Squares, Hero Arts - Infinite Squares, button, ribbon.

I am pleased to share that I have passed my first 100KM for #TrailblazeforWishes and creeping up on 150KM. 

This challenge runs until July 28th, there is still time to join me by donating, sharing or even challenging yourself.
