Wow what a week New Zealand has had.
My heart goes out to all of the families and loved ones affected by the big quake that hit Christchurch last Tuesday.
My family and i are very forunate that we do not know anyone living down there..but that does not make it any less easier to accept what has happened to our fellow Kiwi's.
I spent a good part of Tuesday glued to my T.V and shedding a few quiet tears.
A church on the other side of Hamilton were collecting much needed items to send down in a Mainfreight truck.
My family and i went shopping and spent just over $200 on essential living items, and also sent along 8-10 rubbish bags full of baby clothes...a let go business idea..
It was heart warming to see our teenagers leading the way in the supermarket on what we should buy to send down...they got such a natural high from helping others, they smiled for the rest of the evening.
Now over to crafting.
I have been playing along with Try stampin on Tuesday for the past few weeks, i have come to really enjoy playing along with this challenge site
Here is this weeks sketch.
I had an idea in mind.
I wanted to try an easel card using my new Top Note Die.
So here is my finished card.
I used a couple different techniques with this card
I did a bit of sponging, embossing.
The image is embossed with the background sponged in three different colours.
i am really happy with the outcome, the photo doesn't do this card any justice, it is so much prettier in person
