Curtain Call Challenge Reminder and a farewell!


Hello folks,

Welcome back. I feel as though I haven't been here on a long time. It has been very busy. As of you who follow me on Facebook, you will know I have been renovating a property of mine after tenants trashed it last week. It all happened when it was time for them to vacate and we did not extend the contract. We wanted to see the property because we had not looked at it for a year and we wanted to give a fresh lick of paint. Now, for past two weeks, we as a family has been spending time renovating the property and it has been exhausting. That is why I have been MIA. Most of the work is done now. Only small jobs left. By tomorrow all will be done. It has been a great learning experience for somebody like me who has not done trades. Looks like I can now handle it and learnt some tradie language as well lol!

Anyway, today I have a second and last card for Curtain Call Challenge. There is time still have time to play Curtain Call Challenge - Bouquet sponsored by Penny Black.


Here is my second take on the challenge

I just love you card1

I have used Pretty Petals stamp set from Penny Black to stamp and copic colour. I paired the coloured panel with black and white pattern paper from Beau Jardins pattern paper pad. 

I just Love you closeup1

I have accented the card front using Pretty Pink Posh's Sparkly Clear sequins. 
Come and play the challenge. there are two prizes from Penny Black to be won.
 You have until April 25th at 8:00 AM CDT to be inspired and share your project!

So when I said last card, I meant that I am stepping down from the challenge. I have been in Curtain Call Challenge for past two years. I thought it is time for me to step down and give another talented designer a chance to be on this gorgeous team. I am sad but I had a great time. The team is awesome, Stacey is a great person to work with. Very approachable and flexible. I have been very lucky to work with such wonderful people. Thank you so much Stacey for having me. Love ya!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your card is beautiful Gayatri! (So glad to hear that you have hidden talents, shame that you had to use them, people can be really inconsiderate)
