.....As i mop my tears,

Afternoon all,
Well after the very early start, it feels like it should be night not mid afternoon.
 We all had to be up at Auckland airport to say goodbye our son/brother at 4am this morning, and being in Hamilton we had a real early start. But he got away with no problems, so all i need to hear is that he has arrived safely, then i can relax a little bit.

But back to the reason we all read these blogs, sharing the wonderful crafts we all make.
As i mentioned in an earlier post after a busy weekend i managed to fit in a card class.

Once a month, the ever so wonderful and talented Jacquelyn Pedersen  (click on this link to view her blog) comes down from Auckland, to teach us ladies a new technique or a wonderful gift idea to make.

This month we did some sponging, and using the SU Stamp set "lovely as a tree", we created this amazing card

Can you see the little hint of glitter, not too much as this is for a male, this is the second time i have had a go at background sponging, and i like the effect, i just to have a few more go's to perfect it a little more.


  1. I really like this! I haven't been brave enough to attempt the background sponging yet. You did a great job!

  2. Hi Marie,
    thanks it is easier than i thought to do, i've been told the trick is to use less ink and layer more to deepen the colour, not the other way around
