Rainy Day Fun
Well it started with a light drizzle when I left yesterday and so I headed to Port Moody for some stash therapy at the Black Sheep Yarns for the yarn sale. I know, I should be reducing my stash and I am with several projects, but this lovely stuff just begged to come home with me. How could I resist such lovely colour and soft yarn as the large skein of Dream in Color Baby Lace Weight hand painted yarn, Wisterious colourway. The other 3 skeins are more soft merino hand dyed wool from Peru. This is sock or fingering weight yarn that I think is destined to become amulet bags. Lots of knitting heaven in my future.
So I left the yarn shop for my walk to Cherish The Thought in puring rain. What happened while I was fondling beautiful wool? Oh well with my umbrella I should stay fairly dry and there is the first card project of 2010 waiting for me.
This one used the "Friends Forever" Cuttlebug die and embossing folder set. This is a lovely set with several greetings, but I wish it also had thank you. The first card "kindred spirit" is the one we made for the make and take, quite simple and quick. I thought it needed something more and added the flower at home.
Then I made "friends forever" and used brown cardstock and a pre-cut scalloped card front that came with the box of envelopes I needed for my handmade cards. I sponged tea dye Distress ink on the raised part of the embossed image and vintage photo Distress Ink on the edge. I think the flower I had on hand was perfect.
