Monthly crop today at the Bristol Scrappers!
I never know what to pack for crops. I fill my little car and take two trips to carry everything in and out. But even when I'm prepared (which doesn't happen often!) I always, without fail, want to use the one thing on my scrapbook pages that I haven't brought. Last month I made an executive decision to concentrate on cards at these crops instead. And last month I came away with 18 little "thank you" notelets, so that was a productive day.
Today I only made 3 cards but they were a learning curve and took some time. And I STILL didn't have everything I needed, but Susan, owner of a gigantic sack of paints (including 4 different shades of lime green!) very kindly let me use her acrylics and brush. In exchange I gave her the bull-rush template and die-cut for her art journals. I love how friendly and eager to share we all are at this crop - not just stash and tools but ideas, compliments, appreciation. They are such lovely people.
This week's Less Is More challenge is yellow and green. I brought along my Distress inks and made a wonderful mess.
And CASology's challenge is paint so this one was Susan's acrylics. I always think silhouettes are deliciously dramatic, especially with a colourful background to them - don't you? I'm not sure which I prefer. I'll add the greeting when I decide who and what it is for.
Finally Simon Says Stamp wants pearls, and Cute Card Thursday have requested "springtime". I nicked this design unashamedly off Pinterest where it appears in so many guises that I don't know who to thank for the original. If anyone knows, please leave a comment and tell me so that I can leave credit where it's due, because isn't it delish?
I also want to put this towards March's SIPIDI, as it is definitely a Pinterest steal.
ETA: Look what I won for these cards. Thank you so much!
