Alphabet Challenge Blog - K - for Kindness

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Happy Friday! I hope you have had a good week. I have been making the most of my time off. I have been able to do  a bit of crafty experimenting. Today I am hoping to get a long way with the Save the Date cards for our daughter and her fiance. They are visiting this evening as we will be looking after their rabbits for them so they can go away for a few days.

The new challenge starts on the Alphabet Challenge blog the letter is K and the theme is Kindness. I must admit this theme was chosen by me and I will be choosing the top three. I was thinking of Sympathy cards, Get Well cards or Thinking of You cards. One of the design team made a Thank You card - I didn't think of that but it does fit nicely with the theme.


I started by creating the background with the Heart Lattice Embossing Folder. I used white card and once embossed I inked over it to bring out the detail of the embossing. The gold lattice was made with a Spellbinders die and the Oval frame was made with the Innsbruck die set from the Austrian collection by Sue Wilson. 


I used a Thinking of you die set and the Pierced Flag dies by Sue Wilson  to create the sentiment. 


I do love the Sue Wilson poppy dies they make such beautiful flowers. The foliage was made with the Olive Branch die set.  


I hope you have a wonderful weekend. My husband has next week as leave we have lots of plans I doubt that we will get everything done. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
