Daring Cardmakers Crossing Continents
Posted by manicstamper on April 14, 2007
This week the lovely Saffa has challenged us to make a celebration card for a culture other than our own.
I have chosen to make a card for Diwali the festival of light.
The colours are inspired by the sari’s that the ladies of the family I used to live next door to wore……an absolute feast for the eyes.
Because I wanted to use jewels I have kept the design very simple. The silver lines are drawn with a gel pen which I have also used to outline the lettering.
The jewels have been glued with Glossy Accents.
Saffa……thank you so much for this wonderful dare. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Well I don’t know what got into me today but I was in the mood for cooking……very , very unusual for me but hubby, although he is on holiday from work, has been helping a friend to erect some fencing and it’s quite a big job. I knew he would be starving when he got in so I did some marinated pork ribs and some chicken breasts with a new coating I just whisked up and then I decided I would make a savoury flan. I did a veggie one………just red onion and cherry tomato as I don’t eat much meat any more and it was flippin’gorgeous……even if I do say so myself.
It’s alright this cooking lark………it’s the washing up I object to………lol!!!
I’ve got a day almost to myself later today as hubby is off out again, DD will be in bed as she is on a night shift and DS will be at work. Just me and the dog…….lovely……as long as he is not as big a pain as he was yesterday. I think he barked at just about everything that moved…..just when you don’t want it with DD being in bed.
2:17am and I am still wide awake so I think I’ll do a bit of diecutting ready for making up some cards later today. If I get them done early I might go out in the garden and do a bit of weeding if it’s nice enough.
Hope you all have a fab weekend.
