The first Monday of each month sees the start of a new challenge over at The Path of Positivity. For February the theme is ‘Desire’. It’s is quite apt in our family at the moment. This summer is going to be an exciting and possibly challenging time of us. My husband will be retiring from parish ministry and so we will be moving out of the Vicarage. We recently sold our house and have just put in an offer on another a little bit further away from the parishes we are working in. One of the stipulations of the Church of England is that you cannot retire to your parish. So, naturally we will also be moving house at some point. Also at the end of August our youngest is getting married.
All these life events involve desire; my daughter desires her fiance and I expect also a good wedding day. My husband and I desire a house to turn into a home. My husband desires to retire. As for me, I desire that everything goes smoothly!
In view of possibly the most exciting of all these events, the wedding, I chose to go with that theme for my card.
Ikes Art – With This Ring
white A5 card blank
siver glitter pen
snippets of blue and centura pearl card
Print out three copies of the image and colour with Copic pens, adding some silver spots to the lady’s sleeve with the glitter pen. Cut the hands from one of the images and just the lady’s sleeve from one. Layer them up using a temporary glue and cut all three layers with the frame die. Take the layers apart and then layer them up again using gel glue to add dimension.
Make up a sheet of backing paper using words from the wedding vows and printing it out in grey on white printer card. Matt onto blue card then attach to the card blank.
Die cut ‘congrats’ in blue and centura pearl card and stick together slightly off set. Stick the topper and the sentiment to the card front.
I went with the blue colouring because my daughter is going with blue for her bridesmaids and it is as good a colour as any!
I really enjoy the Path of Positivity Challenge, it does require a bit of thought as you have to say in what way your creation links to the theme. It does not need to be a whole essay, just a line in the link up is fine. There are two great sponsors this time and some great prizes:
- A $10 gift certificate from Scribbles Designs, one of our guest sponsors this month, for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
- A $15 gift certificate from Ike’s Art, one of our guest sponsors this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants.
- One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
There will also be:
- A small selection of digital designer papers from Décosse’s Dynamite Doodles for one lucky person who leaves a comment on posts published during the challenge timeframe.
- One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge.
So come on over and join us – please, a wam welcome awaits you.
Thanks for dropping by. Take care.
