Its a new day

I'm feeling loads better today - yay! Actually got some energy. Which I need as I plan Sunday's service as the theme is "love one another as I have loved you" to which I can say yes he loves you truly madly deeply. go on then congregation, love each other and everyone else the same way. But I need to pad it out a bit! Any ideas. Particularly what to do with the kids will be gratefully received!

My blog candy is ready to go. I'll take advice on how to keep a blog post at the top (three years and still no clue really) and then I'll show off what I have to give away. I like to think it is a small yet perfectly formed wodge. Like me. Only I'm a bit more lumpy.

Its Friday already! Gulp! Which means its Daring Cardmaker Day. Jane chose the dare this week.

The Sound of Music

Tra-Laa! I want you to design a card which is 'Musically inspired'. Anything goes, whether you use musical paper, or an image of instrument - or even song lyrics.

I decided to come at it from leftfield rather... but it means it is quite hard to photograph
This one shows the details better
and this one is more true to the colour(is white a colour. Answers on a postcard please) (now that dates me. Today it is text and twitter and stuff)
I have never used this cuttlebug musical note die. I covered it with glue and glittered it. PUt some card through the swiss dots folder. I made a flower with organza ribbon and piled it on top of a paper flower, added a pin and a button. the pearls are papermania. The writing says "just a note" from the Clare Curd sentiments. It is embossed in Winter wonderland powder and has glitter round the edge. You can read it. Honest.

Right off for a working lunch. Hoping my friend has ideas I can pulpit lift (I think that is the Sunday worship equivalent of scrap lifting) and may even manage my candy blog post later. Its Phil's birthday tomorrow so will also have to stay up late and make his card.

And remember... God loves you truly, madly, deeply

PS I'm back after lunch realising that I didn't say
HELlllllllllllloooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo Dolly!
Dolly has joined the Funky Hand team. It was so, so hard for Anice to choose a new team member but I must say I was blown away by Dolly (Vicky really) 's blog and can't believe she is a pretty new crafter!

Beautifully done, love the use of texture to add interest to the (very) mono colour scheme, really elegant effect!

If I had seen this card anywhere else I would never have taken it as one of yours.
It’s so different for you and for someone who says she struggles with White space it looks like you were out to prove something Lol!

I love it.
