LPoCF #154 Bountiful Blooms

 Hello again,

Today brings us to another Anything goes Challenge with my Team mates over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, this fortnight we are sponsored by Rachel Vass Designs- Etsy Shop, I chose to use a digi that came sized for a slimline card called 'Bountiful Blooms', right now I have left it sentiment free, I can add one at a later date.

This week may see us have nearly 1m or 3feet of rainfall where I live, our laundry is flooded although the rain has just been constant rather than extremely heavy downpours like last year when the train line washed away the next town up the mountain. The main dam for Sydney has gone from below 40% full last year to now overflowing, a new bridge in a known flood area was built with the intention that it would never be under flood, has had all traffic stopped from using it as the water is lapping just below the road level and is expected to go under water in the next few hours...

Thank you

 Hello all, 

Well this past week our local bank branch was closed due to lack of use during Covid two of the three staff chose to take redundancy the third is planning to work from home for a while before she thinks she'll join them. My parents have opted to change banks (grudgingly) as they prefer to deal with a human, the ladies that worked at the branch have been there for many years and I made them each a card to say thank you for all their help over the years.

I have used an image from our sponsor Sheepski Designs called Birthday Cocktail to make a birthday card, I have used a stencil with spray ink masking off about half of the card front and a Cadence stencil MA-27. I then allowed it to dry before outlining the circles with a black fine line pen (also on the straw), The image was painted with watercolours. The sentiment is a stamped and heat embossed Cheers from Letter-It Birthday set and a Create with TLC digital stamp.
