Woody Thanks

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend. On Saturday the choir I sing in performed a concert in Exeter Cathedral. It was a lovely setting, gorgeous acoustics and the concert went very well. We're a chamber choir of around twenty voices so with only four or five voices per part there's no resting on your laurels!!

But on Sunday my recurring neck problem reared it's ugly (and very painful!) head and I spent most of the day drugged up in bed and sadly had to miss a big family party. The only upside was that I managed to make a few cards in the evening!

This one is for last week's CAS challenge on Splitcoast - to make a card using Green and Brown. Not my normal go-to colours but I quite like it...


Stamps - Hero Arts
Ink - Colorbox chalk
Card - Dark Chocolate/ New Leaf (PTI)
Other - New lead button/Spellbinders Circle Nestabilites and Tag Die

Wow is there nothing you don't do lol! I can just picture you now with your angelic face singing your heart out.

I am sorry to hear you have had trouble with your neck - maybe some light massage ;D I'll just check to see if Bradley Whitford is free lol!

Love this card - great effect with the wood stamp and masked flowers -really clever :D

Will email you with the other stuff :D

Kate - I love how this turned out! Great job, I never would have picked green & brown on my own, either...

Ooh, I spent ages trying to figure out how you got that wood effect - course now I know after reading the comments, lol!!

This is so unusual Kate, I just LOVE it.
Hope your neck is getting better, you know you can take a vampire addiction too far!! ;)

Lovely card Kate. I love the colours with the flowers and wood grain. Beautiful!

Hi Kate,

firstly what a surprisingly good colour combo, and second love how you used a scalloped circle card, perfect for framing that lovely stamp and third hope your feeling much better- that sounded like a really nasty neck problem.

Love Kim

Hi Kate

Hope your neck is better ! I am mid way through a second batch of physio on mine, I know that horrible feeling in your head - terrible ! All the time I am screaming to myself STRETCHES - POSTURE ! !

Anyway, this is gorgeous Kate, just beautiful.

Exeter Cathedral! Sigh. Wish I lived near you....

Hope your neck feels better. At least it didn't interfere with your stampin' mojo. Your card is WONDERFUL!

Aimes said...

Oh now I'm thinking that you should have been the Guest Designer for this CAS challenge, or at least have let me nabbed this card for my entry ;D
Hope your in less pain today hun!

What a gorgeous card, love those colors! Hope your neck is feeling better, what a shame to miss a party! Ice packs are your friend.

Karen from MI said...

What a DARLING CARD! So deserving of the "TWEET". Love your colors and the shape that you incorporated into the design. Just LOVELY and SO FRESH!
Love, Karen
