LPoCF #168 The Paper Shelter

 Hello again,

Things are starting to open up here in New South Wales with one big but, you must be double vaccinated. Lockdown continues for those of us who have not had access to the vaccine as much as the main city areas. School goes back this week and next first for Kindy, First and 12th grades, followed by the remaining grades. I will get to watch what happens over the next few weeks in terms of case numbers as the metropolitan area reopens. 

This week brings us to an all new Anything Goes Challenge with my team mates over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, our sponsor this fortnight is The Paper Shelter, who gave the Design Team one image to work with, Autumn Breeze, it comes with both a pre-coloured image and layout and a black and white image to colour yourself. I have coloured the black and white image in Autumnal colours.

Here is my card:-

What I used:-
The Paper Shelter 'Autumn Breeze'
Faber-Castell coloured Pencils
White 14cm square card blank
Bo Bunny Very Vintage Double Dot Design Paper

Two Christmas cards

 Hello again,

I've managed to make two Christmas cards still using the scrappy bits of one paper pad from Doodlebug Designs 'north pole' there is maybe enough scraps for another card or two, a few squares I've die-cut in the past and then some narrow strips. 

I am booked in for my first covid vaccine tomorrow, I was not able to book an appointment until early July and then the wait for the two nearest practices offering the jabs was the last few days of October, my local GP clinic finally got offered some of the vaccine for my age group and I was able to bring my appointment forward by one month. With the current lockdown (3months) rules lifting for vaccinated Sydneysiders before our area had access to the vaccine, locals are not happy that tourists will be able to visit our area when we have had less opportunity to have the vaccine. One of the two clinics actually wrote in to the local newspaper that there had been no vaccines offered for three weeks due to the doses being redirected to Sydney. whinging over.... 

Here are my two cards:-


What I used:-
White 17.8x12.6cm card blanks
Doodlebug Design 'north pole' paper pad
CCD quilt die
Oval, circle and scalloped circle dies
Red, grey and green cardstock
Green brad
MFT 'hand-lettered holiday greetings' and 'Hand-lettered Christmas' stamps
Colorbox Ruby ink pad
Clear embossing powder
Adhesives:- DS tape, PVA glue
