I'm so sorry to have been away so long. It's been a wild and crazy couple of weeks around here....with some sorrowful moments. I haven't had a minute of crafty time since around the 20th of May. I was in withdrawals then I couldn't find my mojo....it was gone for quite a while. I'm sorry to the challenge hostesses that I am tardy with. I am trying to make up for it all in one post...forgive me.
*The Crafters of Faith blog group challenge (should have been up the last day of May) was to create a card with the inspiration of "a basket full of flowers".
*The Twisted Tuesday Challenge this week is to use a touch of purple in your creation and the Twist is add baker's twine.
*The Crafty Gals blog group challenge today is to make a Summery/Vacation themed creation with patterned paper and 2 embellishments.
Here's what I created to encircle all three:
For the Crafters of Faith challenge I made a "pot" and filled it with flowers made with the Itty Bitty Punch pack punches from SU! I free hand cut my leaves. Then added some pearls to the purple flowers.
For the Twisted Tuesday challenge....just a few purple flowers with the same paper mat behind and some lucky limeade twine at the top.
For the Crafty Gals challenge....yes, this is Summery with the vibrant flowers but it is also Vacation-like to me. Why you say? I remember a trip we took to the Biltmore Home a few years ago. That place is so beautiful...the home itself is enormous and so detailed but being the garden lover that I am...the grounds were my favorite part. I remember large flower gardens with some of the most vibrant blooms you've ever seen. When I got my little pot together, it reminded me of those that I saw at Biltmore.
My purple flower and matted background are patterned paper and I used pearls and twine as my two embellishments.
I hope you like my first creation since my "hiatus"! :)
