Anyway I am having another tidy up - huh, take out some items, sit down, put them neatly in their new container, put them back, sit a little longer, stand up and stretch (if possible), take a few more out etc etc. I haven't managed one shelf yet but it doesn't matter, I am taking my time. Oh and I made a couple of cards in between.
The one I have made for this post is for the CCC, Carol has chosen the theme 'pretty in pink'. Now, I had one of those moments - you know the ones you get every millennium or so - lol - well you do if your name is Sue Pxxx and you're on another planet half the time. Some time ago I was hopping about the blogs leaving a few comments and I saw this card on Di's blog (Pixie's Crafty Workshop) here. I must admit I really liked it for it's simplicity and CAS-ness! I had my light-bulb moment and pictured a version of this in pink!! I also wanted to play with my Frantage because I have never had the courage - until now - that is. So here we are!
Before I did anything else I took a card blank and sprinkled some Shabby Pink EP on the front - I didn't use any ink beforehand because I wanted a random splash! It was fun trying to balance the card so that the bloomin' stuff wouldn't fall off all over the shop, then I heated it from underneath. I am quite pleased with my nebular constellation pink wormhole (just a few words I have strung together that sound good!)! I added a few snowflakes in my constellation - pink of course. The bottom part of the card is a die-cut from a gorgeous die by Memory Box - when I saw Di's card, I just knew that I needed this one - lol.
7" x 7" White Card Blank - Anna Marie Designs
Papermania - Glitter Paper Pad
Stampendous - Shabby Pink EP
Memory Box - Grand Merry Christmas die
Memory Box - Lindeman Snowflake
Poppy Stamps - Giovanna Snowflake die
io-dies - Snowflake dies (asstd)
This is my first really CAS card methinks and I am sure the majority of my cards has an image somewhere or other. This could be another first - yay! I really am itching to add something else but I don't know what, and I am sure it would be OTT.
I hope you like it, as this is a big swerve for me, let me know if it is OK, or whether you think it needs something else!! I shall really love reading your comments, but don't be too cruel! ROFL.
Thank you for stopping by and having a peep at my bits and bobs. I really will do my best to drop by your blogs as soon as I can.
Before I go I am sure, like me, you are thinking of all the poor souls in the Philippines struggling after that horrendous typhoon Haiyan. We have our 'adopted' daughter there, we met her when we were on holiday on a tiny island in the Maldives and she was one of the Receptionists. We used to chat every day and she told us that she and her husband had been trying for a baby for ages and she thought that she might just be pregnant! (she was pregnant and has since had a truly beautiful daughter) We were her lucky charms and she called us her 'adopted' mum and dad! I haven't been able to contact her yet, but I have to keep trying and hoping that she is OK.
Big hugs to you all and take care of yourselves.
