Firstly hello to my new followers - hopefully you will find something interesting in my cards and waffle. Normally more waffle than cards it has to be said!
Another early start this morning - Emily decided that 4am was a good time to wake. Bit of a shock after 8 days of sleeping through and waking up at 6! Looking on the good side at least we've had over a week of good sleep so maybe this is just a blip. Fingers crossed, eh!
I did make a card yesterday but, shock of shocks, it was actually for someones birthday and I don't want to show it until I know it's arrived.
So onto card. I, in the interests of Using it Up and having a lots of images sitting waiting to be coloured on my 'desk', decided to raid one of my boxes of 12x12 papers and try something - colour wise - out of my normal comfort zone.
This is the result:
Teddy Bo digi image: TeddyBo_076 'afternoon nap' - coloured with my Promarkers.
Papers are Basic Grey - Phoebe for the plain and Mellow for the stripes.
Grommet is from We Are Memory Keepers.
Happy Birthday is a Lili of the Valley stamp
Saying is from Fiskars
String is from my stuff
Much darker colours than I usually use and a male card to boot. Not sure about the phrase on the bottom, but then when am I ever really happy with any card - very rarely!! Also not sure about the quality of the picture - I made some adjustments to my camera and I think I'm going to adjust it back again! I'll try for a better picture tomorrow and re-do it. By the way there is supposed to be a light grey outline to the image - it just looks smudged on my screen!!! Apologies.
I know I'm a bit behind with commenting, got to do one more thing tonight and then I'm onto commenting.
Back tomorrow with my Divas by Design Design Team card - 'cause we're a weekly challenge now, did you know that? Hope so!
See you tomorrow then,
A challenge, or two:
