In one of several boxes of toppers I found a little packet of shirts I'd already made up - from a kit bought about six years ago. We were on holiday in Gibraltar and came across a little (tiny really) craft shop tucked away in a quiet back street run by an English ex-pat - I think she had the shop mostly for fun rather than profit. I came away with some odds and ends, including a packet containing six 3" x 6" strips of precut paper and a little guide with a hand drawn sketch. It was all just folding with four little snips to finish off - great fun too!
This is the card I made yesterday:
Actually, the really hardest part was not poking at the 'buttons' before the Liquid Pearls dried :))
- C6 plain white card stock
- Background striped paper, from stash
- Red and white backing card, both from snippets
- Folded shirt - from stash
- Buttons on the shirt - White Opal Liquid Pearls
- Sentiment - Craftwork Cards
I've got the rest of these little babies to use up and, since St Luke's Hospice Charity Card Challenge have listed Male Cards in their most requested cards, I know just where these will be going once I finish playing :) I hadn't realised that St. Luke's was the charity that my late (and much missed) French teacher Betty supported until just the other day - so it seems extra fitting that I've been sending cards to them for their fund raising without even making the connection. Someone up there is still giving me a little nudge now and then :) Right up until our last reunion she was teasingly threatening to give us detention - and I had enough of that at school (yeah, OK, generally for talking too much!).
I've mooched round some of the current challenges and would like to enter this offering to:
Totally Gorguss Challenge #97 - It's a Man Thing
Phindy's Place Challenge #72 - Stripes Somewhere
Hope you all have a great weekend, whatever the weather and whatever you're doing!
