There are big ships ................

Hey to all my fellow bloggers out there.  I hope that you are having a great halloween week.  My family and I are looking forward to dressing up on Wednesday and going trick or treating.  The kids are really excited and I should imagine the dentist will be some time soon after .....................

Life has been really hectic and the kids have been really busy which has meant that crafting has sort of taken a back seat recently.  

I have however made some cards for friends and family and heres one of the recent ones.  It was used for a friendship swap over on DC.  The card is also for the latest challenge on my other blog ........  The Cutie Pie Challenge.  This fortnight we have a distressing challenge ............. no, not to make each other cry, lol, but to distress our artwork.  So here's my interpretation. 

I have of course used the fantastic Tim Holtz distress inks to distress the background of the card, and the flowers and tickets.  I have used embossing powders in white and gold to emboss the images which are from craft creations.  The ship and sentiment are on white card, with white embossing powder, stamped with versa mark, and the gold onto craft card and then heat embossed.  The edges of the card were distressed.  The sentiment from the same set reads

"There are big ships and small ships, but the best ship of all is friendship"

How true that is, so to all my friends both personal and in blogland, thank you for the wonderful gift of friendship.

Craftyhugs to everyone
