Well, this is my last day of leave from work - I have managed to get some things sorted for Christmas - made 7 gifts so far, plan on making another 2 tonight. The presents left to get now are the 'difficult' ones I'm stuck on, such as my Mum who says she doesn't want anything - she would rather see us spend our money on ourselves! What do you do in a situation like that 'cos she really means it? Do I make a piece of jewellery she'll never wear, or a photo calendar she'll never put up??? I'm really stuck!
Anyway, Eleri went to a disco party yesterday for two of her classmates - I think they all had a wonderful time! So I made two similar cards for the girls:
Because I was making two cards, and needed to do them in one evening, I went for a simple layout. But I think it looks very effective - probably looked better in real life than in the photos.
The image is Wags 'n Whiskers Snuzzle Love digi which I bought from Bunny Zoe's. I've coloured her with Promarkers, of course. The mat for the image was embossed with a Cuttlebug Daisy folder - the gingham paper was printed from a Crafters Companion CD onto pearlescent paper. The border punch I used is X-cut Doily Dots. And some added gem stones and stickles - et voila!
Did you notice the little 'boo boo' I made on the yellow card? When I cut the legs out, I started to cut from the wrong angle, so cut into the circle - burk!!! - never mind, I just made the same cut on the other side so it's not too noticeable!
I'm entering these cards in the following challenges:
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Borders and Flowers
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes
Well that's it from me - a bit more checking for present ideas on the internet I think.
See you soon, and have a fab week.
Love, Andrea xx
