Good afternoon all my blogging friends and a huge hello to my new followers, Lorraine and Bunny. I have nearly reached 100 followers, suprising to me because I have only just been blogging for one year. I am so pleased that you are popping by to see what I have made or to see what faux pas I have managed to come up with. You know the ones I mean - butterfly aerials etc.
Anyway enough of my warblings (eh Jenny!!) here is a card (the first card I would add) that I have made for Pixies Crafty Snippets Playground Challenge. I have the biggest tub of snippets and have been 'threatening' for months to make a card. Did I hear those gates clang shut Di - and did the goat stop mid-trampolining!
I had a little piece of card left over from a sheet after I had cut out an 8"x8" card so I used some of this for my card base. I had a snippet of card left over from one of my DT cards and a snippet of glitter card - well you get my drift by now, they are ALL snippets - lol.
I did a technique the other day with a sponge I bought from the Pound Shop - the sort that has the big holes in it. I chopped it into loads of pieces and I used one to 'pounce' some Chalk ink over the masked off centre of the card. The rest of the card is matted and layered as you can see, so I won't bore you with all of those warblings.
I asked hubster to take a side view pic so you could see how it opened. I only decorate the inside of my cards if they are for special occasions or commissions, mainly though it is because I am possibly toooooo tight.
This is a very very simple card for me, and took me half an hour to make - which is also a miracle! In case you were wondering, it measures 6.5" x 5.25".
I hope you like it , this is my favourite paper of all time, and I can't remember where I got it from - mind you I have some more in different colours, so I am still laughing! Well, I am now off to enter my card into the above mentioned challenge!
Big hugs to you all out there, hope you are having a good weekend and that you are happy with the weather - I am because it is much cooler here!!!
I am entering my card in the following Challenge
