Grey Wetlands

Hi all,

Thought it was time to get my crafty finger out again as it's been 3 weeks since I last posted.  I haven't been completely idle though, I've started sewing a quilt - still in the early stages but I'll post what I've done later in the week if I've time.

I fancied making a card today but I feel I'm so out of practice at the moment that I had to look through the challenges for some inspiration.

I've gone with the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch and the theme at CAS-ual Fridays which is "Shades of Gray".  I was also at a Stampin' Up party recently and bought a heap of stuff, so I thought I'd better use some of it!


Here's my card ....



Supplies Used
Stamp - Wetlands by SU, stamped onto glossy card and lightly coloured with ink
DP is by Indigo Bleu
Gray cardstock is Stampin' Up
Sentiment is PC generated



It's taken me all afternoon to make this card and now it's time to go feed the hungry horaces - fish and chips tonight and I need to go get it as my husband is currently roaring at the TV as Scotland are playing rugby!  Honestly - he is sooooo loud!!

Thanks for popping in, 

Take care
Suze xx

Lovely card, great colours, and starring a wonderful goose - yes! The thought of Fish and chips is making my mouth water. Good that your husband is only shouting at the TV! Have a great weekend, Hugs, Valerie

Scotland was robbed today, I think they should have won.

I love the way you coloured the image and clever use of the circle for the background.

Hi Suze, So glad you've been crafting again, it seems many of us were getting a bit low with all that wet and grey! But this card is gorgeous, so classy, Canada Geese are beautiful and that stamp is wonderful! Have a great week! xx
