Shaving foam fun!

Hi my crafty friends, hope you're all well & have something nice planned for the weekend!
Not much going on here.....the boys are at work, Rebecca is snowed under with her school art work & me? Well, I have the best job.......I'm on kitty duty! I will post some more pictures soon......promise!
Thanks so much for all your kind words on my RA.......I think I've now accepted it's just something I have to live with.....and I's not gonna beat me lol! It does mean I can't craft exactly as I used to......I can't hold my Copics to colour properly......but there's plenty more I can do!
So with that in mind my makes for today are a couple of congratulations cards I made for the winners of my last candy......& I used shaving foam!! A great technique.....messy, fun & inky.....& it works every time......and oh my, does it smell good!! Once dried, I simply cut the backgrounds to size, mounted onto some coordinating card, added a die cut sentiment & finished with a couple of gems!
Sorry the photo isn't the best....we seem to be heading back toward Winter in my neck of the woods!
Thanks for calling lovelies......have a great weekend!

a challenge or two.....

  10. Fabulous use of the shaving foam technique, Jo! I must admit, though you believe it works every time, it's a technique I love but have never mastered. :-( Loving your great attitude toward the RA. Gives great hope to all of us who suffer with it to one degree or another.
