Building Friendships

     As some of you know, I've been participating each month in the Card Chain Challenge.  It's such fun to receive a card in the mailbox from someone new each month and it gives me one more reason to make and mail a card.  :-D

     Here's the one I sent last month:


     The image is from Beccy's Place and I colored it with my ProMarkers, using colors from the optional color palette at CCC and basing it on the sketch.

       

     I cut it with a pinpoint die from Memory Box and then inked the edges before putting it onto the white card front.  I added metal brads and the sentiment, then popped it into an envelope and sent it on its way.

     Challenges:
Creates and Makes
Digi Choosday
Dream Valley
Kraftin' Kimmie
Lemon Shortbread
Outlawz Twisted Thurs.
Pammie's Inky Pinkies

   I hope you're having a wonderful Labor Day holiday weekend and that you'll find time for creativity, relaxation, and fun.  Does it seem odd to anyone else that we celebrate "Labor" by letting all those who 'labor' stay home from work and not labor?  lol  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

  4. You've done a great job interpreting the sketch NanaConnie, your card is fabulous! I really like the fine green border around the edge of the image panel, as well as the line of stitching. You did a wonderful job with the colouring and the sentiment was a perfect choice. Love it!
    Cheers,
    Beccy
