I can't believe that I am back to work tomorrow.
I have spent the last couple of days trying to get ahead on a little DT and class work before I get back to the grind.
This week the Woodware USA challenge has restarted with a sketch that has been used on their sister blog Woodware UK.
I decided that I would make a separate card for this challenge using a lovely clear set Winding Paths.
I stamped and embossed the image and cut it out with a Nestie and then coloured it using a Kaleidacolour ink pad called Creole Spice. The little tree and greeting are also from the set.
I have used background papers from my stash to create the torn background.
Of course there had to be a bit of stitching added with a fine black pen.
Better get my uniform ironed ready for work tomorrow.
Have a great evening.
