its been a few more weeks of demanding work meaning I am too pooped to play.
Well to be fair I have been playing - just not doing the ol' blogging thing as there hasn't been enough left in the noodle to write for fun.
So here is one of those mega catch up photo heavy blog posts.
Sorry and all.
Daring Cardmakers I think I have managed 4 out of the last 4 Dares. Go me! (Although I suspect I am going to be late with the next one)
At the end of October we had to use Googly Eyes - this was such fun
I chose some fun Amy Tan papers and picked out some colours that I could paint my little furry friend with. He looks fun without embellishment but the eyes are just perfect for him in my opinion.
Then I just laid on the stripes on the diagonal and die cut the letters and the speech bubble too. The letters are from a Little B set that is actually words so I had to find the words with the right letters! I added some glossy accents and wink of stella pen and ... job done!
a Colour Combo
I used a very old Quickutxz dies and some much newer Lawn Fawn Milo stamps.
And also this one
The die cut letters are cut from the white shade of glitter paper I meant to order and I painted some pale pink distress ink on the top. It looks very pretty in real life. I used more of my less glittery cardstock along with an embossed greeting and a star die cut.
Kathy asked us to make a card with a candle theme
and I went a little OTT with glitter on this one (I am really into glittery stuff at the mo'. You may have noticed)
Because the light is appalling at the moment (not helped by our house currently being shrouded in scaffolding) this card is a tad brighter here than it is really!
OK that is enough for one post - I am going to put layouts in another one!
