Just encase you thought I'd forgotten you! LOL I am still here, I know it's been a while since you heard from me. I'm having a bit of a lull and it was with much regret that I resigned from a couple of DT's this week. Oldie But A Goodie which was the first DT I ever made a card for ) they have a new challenge starting today so don't forget to check that out) and Ladybugs Craft Ink which was like cutting an arm off to leave there!! I love you girls and I WILL BE BACK!
I just need a little time out to gather myself and try and put the fun back into crafting, which is what I have been doing this last week (yes it took me a whole week to make this card!)
I've been having a play with lots of stuff I've had for ages and not used like my Butterfly Edger. I kind of feel I might have thrown a little too much at this card but hey ho you live and learn! I think I like it - I reserve judgment for now.
I used the fabulous Magnolia Doo Hickey Feather die again, keep checking as it comes in and goes out of stock all the time!! I also used the Chocolate Box lace die too along the bottom this is a new favourite!! The image is one I bought last year too and never used from Mo Manning - Talk To The Bear - how cute is that lol and the papers if anyone is interested are First Edition. Those pads are such good value. I was saying to my friend Sue today I have sooooooooo much paper it's a crime!
I absolutely must NOT buy anymore.
I did have a massive disaster making this, I'd just finished colouring in my image (over about 3 nights I think!) when I noticed I'd missed a bit of flesh under the bear's bottom, I picked up my E11 Copic and yanked off the top - forgetting I'd just refilled it and 2 of the biggest splodges of ink landed over my newly coloured image!! Thank goodness for the blender pen - it took me 2 more nights to get all the ink off and then fill in again so my shading is a bit dodgy on this on her top and arm, but I managed to keep it out the bin!!
Well I'm sure I've run on enough for one day.
I'm off to my Mums for a couple of days
Thank you for sticking with me
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie
