Good afternoon everyone. Just a quick post to show you the card I made last night...eventually! Problem was I set my mind on red and white and then couldn't find any suitable paper. I could probably have printed some but of course that didn't occur to me. So I stamped some red hearts onto white paper instead. I also embossed some whitewash paper from core'dinations and sanded to show the red. I love this House Mouse image....I think it's just perfect for a Valentine and I coloured it with Promarkers.
The swirl is from Sizzix. It's a really long one and this is a piece that was left from another card! The flowers are cut with an EK Success retro flower punch and I used Basic Grey Cupcake DP. I've used my MS heart punch again and some heart jewels from my stash, card candy from Craftwork Cards and ribbon from my stash. I had a bit of a wrestle with the ribbon because it wanted to show you its' plain side and I was determined that it was going to be all spotty. As you can see I won lol!
I'm entering a few challenges with this card:-
Basic Grey :- Sketch and paper used to punch flowers.
Easy Craft Projects :- Valentine for a man - hope it's not to girly!
House Mouse :- Valentine.
Cupcake :- Four-legged and furry.
Passion for Promarkers :- Animal and any colours.
Cute Card Thursday :- Spots and dots.
Double Dutch :- Valentine.
C.R.A.F.T. :- Valentine.
Crazy 4 Challenges :- Valentine.
I think that's me then. I'm sure there are lots more out there but enough is enough!!
I'd best do my ironing now. One of my favourite things to do on a Sunday. I've been bad for leaving it too late at night because I want to do something more interesting but today I'm going to be good and get rid of it now. My reasoning is that then I can get on with more crafting later without thinking about having to do boring stuff. I've already managed to do some catching up and some commenting so now I need a coffee and I'll enter these challenges.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
