The photo is poor because I didn't want to use flash because it would end up with reflection. If I have time tomorrow before the card is collected, I'll try and take a better photo and replace it.
The man's card was more or less left to me to decide, except I was asked for 'something quite bright' - I'm hoping that this will be OK. The little shirt and waistcoat are from a pack I bought at Lakeland when we went to Chichester from Bognor - thought they would come in handy sometimes when I haven't got time to fiddle making my own. The bow tie is a brad from a set that I bought earlier this week - I didn't know then that I'd be asked for this card, so it's worked out just right - and just the right colours for the scheme:
Papers are DCWV.
It's taken me so long to do these cards and I've got stuff all over the place now. I need to have a rest, then a tidy up, before I tackle the wedding day card that's been requested.
This is my 'oh so useful' guillotine. I have a few paper trimmers (you can also see my rotatrim underneath the guillotine). A lot of chopping gets done here!
This is what Casey wrote:
Wow! We have been so encouraged and excited by all your lovely comments and awesome contributions. Keep them coming!
This week it’s my turn (Casey) to set the challenge:
I have chosen the theme ‘Life to the Full’. This theme comes from the verse John 10:10b where Jesus says that He has come so we may have life and have it to the full (or in abundance)!
So, we would really love to see your take on this challenge of what ‘Life to the Full – in Christ’ means for you.
You can do it whatever format you like e.g. a layout, card, beyond the page, canvas etc
We’d love you to leave us a comment so we can enjoy your artwork too!
Please take a look at Salt
This is my contribution:
I feel so privileged to be part of the Salt team - it is such a fab opportunity to combine faith and crafting. And Casey's challenge has been an opportunity to reflect upon all the benefits we enjoy with life in Christ.
I used my new craft robo to make the words for this - if at first you don't succeed, try, try again - in the end I got there and have learned quite a bit about using inkscape and robomaster.
