FOSTV90 - Decorated Corners

Another Monday, another new week and it is it time to decorate the corners!  I seem to have spent the whole weekend dealing with corners but more about that below.  First I need to share with you my card for Friends of Speedy TV challenge 90 which is to make a card with decorated corners.  They can be decorated in any way you like, but I chose to stamp mine and then add the poinsettias. You might want to check out what the others in the FOSTV team did with their corners too.

I started the card by spongeing with distress inks - Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint.  I then stamped the fern from Joyous Season in Peeled Paint and Pine Needles.  The centre Poinsettia is from Poinsettia Blooms and the small corners ones are from Christmas Selections - they were separately stamped, coloured with Copics, cut out and added.   The sentiment is from Poinsetttia Blooms and I used a Spellbinders die for this.

The card was completed amongst an awful lot of clearing and cleaning so I have checked corners of rooms, cupboards and appliances!  It was a physically and emotionally exhausting weekend.  We have been doing the clear and clean of my Mother in Law's house as it is has sold.  It has been empty since November when she went into a care home and we needed to sell it in order for there to be enough funds to keep her there and well looked after.  She has dementia so there was a lot of cleaning to do and in shifting things we found all sorts of odd bits - sadly no treasure!  We scrubbed, polished and cleaned and hopefully the new owners will be happy there.  The house belonged to Dave's grandparents and his Dad lived there from a baby so quite a lot of history.  We hired a carpet cleaner to use as part of the process so I need to find the strength this week for some others - 2 or 3 here and at least one for my Mum. 

Hope you all have a great week and get your corners sorted! The FOSTV challenge can be found here as challenge 90 from about 14:00 UK time on Monday.
