She posts again

Don't worry, normal service will be resumed next week I am sure. I've not resolved to be a better blogger, becasue I am wise enough to know that I never will be.
It is just nice to be able to show what I have been doing craft wise straight away! Between Christmas and the New Year I have been crafting like a mad thing but all for other places (watch this space in March!). So I had a lovely day yesterday making things for Funky Hand that I can show (off!) today. Oh yes, still struggling with that instant gratification thing...
Oh yes, there is another one but I can't show that until Friday (dozy cow)

So here goes - all papers from Anice's new CD Funky Daze
The last set of papers on the CD are a bit different from the rest, but I love them so! I am a big fan of pink and orange together - and so is Miss C in this picture as you can tell. She is wearing her Hamtaro t shirt which is pretty funky in itself. She bought it with holiday money in France about 4 years ago and it used to be a dress! It has worked out to be brilliant value for money (I suppose even more so considering I made her buy it herself. Ha ha) as it still looks good as new.

Anyway the papers look good on their own but I also went a bit wild with the old black pen. It is an 8x8 layout, simple and bright with no journalling as it is going to be a sample. I may well make another version for me with more words on.... This is actually the second layout I have made using the piggies but I will be sending both away!
They now have an indoor run so they can stretch their legs and Carys sits in it to snuggle with them. It looks like she is back in a playpen!The card I have made is based on the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch this week. I keep meaning to do them and then, well don't!
It uses the "Saturday Lie in" papers from the Funky Daze CD again. You might see a few cards in these colours as I decided to print out one whole set to get the idea of how all the papers go together. And there are a LOT of patterns! I also went rather mad with a glue pen and loose glitter. The butterfly is a Heidi Swapp mask that I drew round and cut out (cut out two and stuck them together so I could fold up the wings).

I know Kathy B will ask "And why didn't you use the Robo?"
Answer: it only just occurred to me.

I did create a photo corner and cut out the circles using my nestabilities though. Oh and everything is inked around using the rose distress ink.
Not usre about the finished card but I do love the papers and the glitter - which you can see even better in their close up!
