Gosh, this week is flying past! We're on Spring Break here in New Zealand, and we've had a lovely road trip down to mine and hubbies home town to visit his parents. We celebrated his dad's birthday and visited special friends and family which included Greg's nana who will be 103 in a few weeks! A bit of a whirlwind trip and in the bustle I've managed to fall behind with my DT make this week. Thankfully, I had watercoloured this sweet image previously, so a quick CAS card was pulled together and now I'm sorted.
Our challenge at Fab 'n' Funky this week is to use images that include word art. The lovely image I used is from our fabulous sponsor Bugaboo and is called Day After Forever from their Love Blocks range. This pretty silhouette has the loveliest word art sentiment, so this will be going to my mummy. I can't wait until she's home in the new year. It's been too long with her away playing Nanny extraordinaire to my sweet niece and nephew. But we can't wait to have her home from the US again. She's been the quintessential 'Fairy Godmother' for those sweet babes and I know my sis' will miss her like crazy when she comes home. But boy we've missed her too! So this sweet image seemed like a good fit to me to send to my lovely mummy with some news of home.
I matted the image with a piece of pale pink cardstock which was left over from a previous creation. I decided not to use it for that one in the end, so I added to a really pretty card base for this creation, that has a pearlescent sheen to it. The edge of the pink cardstock I trimmed with a stitched scallop border die, which I think is Lawn Fawn, but I'll come back later to confirm. A very quick CAS design as I was so short of time this week, but don't you just love it when a CAS design does justice to the image perfectly!
I hope you'll come and join our fun this week with your own interpretation of this fun 'Word Art' challenge. There's plenty of scope and I can't wait to see what you'll create. Until next time, I'm off to have some couch time with hubby and see if another 'Designated Survivor' episode has popped up on Netflix. Loving that show! See you all again soon with another crafty adventure. Big hugs, Wends xoxo (No I haven't forgotten the candy, it's coming and you're gonna love it!)
