Hi dear Bloggers. How is your Monday going?
We had a good weekend. It was a busy one, but a good one. My hubby went hunting from Thursday to Sunday. He was able to shoot one elk and one deer. I am so proud of him and I know he so enjoys doing this kind of thing with his family, but at the same time it is so not a dutch thing to shoot those beauties. Sigh.. I like them alive.. but I also have to say.. you can't get a more 'organic' way of finding your meat. No additives or hormones went into these animals. They had a good life and will probable 'feed' us for the rest of the winter / year. So I am thankful that I live in a country where hunting is allowed. But .. it's still kinda weird.. right?
And on to my card..
I created this card with 2 Challenges in mind. Isn't the layout beautiful? You got to give it a try. I love it. I was challenged by the lovely ladies of the Freshly Made Sketches #9 They have one beautiful and inspirational blog. And one of my dear blogger friends Christy Q is this months host designers. Make sure you hop over to her blog, she is a true artist!
The other challenge I had in mind when I created this card was the Color Throwdown #166. The encouraged us to use the colours Crumb cake, Baja Breeze and Old Olive... and ofcourse I'm loving it!
- I inked up for the first time my Triple Treat Flower stampin Up stamp (#122909 - $10.95). It is such a gorgeous flower. I inked it up and stamped it 3 times, so I could layer it. 2 of my Stampin Up punches were a big help in this process.
- I used the colors, Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake and Old Olive from Stampin Up. I didn't need to be challenges to use these colours. They are one of my favorites as you might know.Well.. I hope I didn't tick you off that much with the dead deer in one of the photo's. It's what they say in this part of the world... It's part of life.. So I guess it is..
Inky hugs, Pauline
