Turn Back Time!

Hi All

I saw the challenge 'Late' at CASology this week and had no ideas for it. I tend to be a planner and knew I would hardly ever need a 'belated' Birthday card and this was all I could think off. Then I remembered a sentiment I had from Visible Images and thought it would be perfect-see what you think and where my thinking was going!


Got it??

This is for my husband. We met late quite late in life. I was heading towards 40 (he is a little younger-yes, my toy boy!!). And I think this sentiment sums us up. I wish we hadn't met so late so I could love him longer.

I have used this sentiment with this image before-usually one layer- so struggled to design it differently than before but played around a bit and managed to get a lot of dimension and instead of stamping the image I heat embossed it onto kraft. Usually I use a white card base and brighter colours for this image and sentiment combo. I feel I did end up stretching my design skills a bit...I so wanted to just 'stamp and go' but I preserved!

I was helped along by the sketch at CAS Colour and Sketches-I had intended to add a little heart where there is a small banner in the sketch but decided I liked it just the way it is.

Have a good day x

  9. I had no idea we also had 'younger men' in common, too! I'm sure I have you beat ... but couldn't agree with this sentiment more - Sandie, this is just wonderful! xx
