What a bloomin' weekend this has been!
Full of highs and lows ... and everything in between.
But much as I feel like indulging in a good ol' rant, that really wouldn't be very polite in front of visitors.
Soooooooooooo ... I'll just show you the card I made for my nephew's 8th birthday instead.
Happy Birthday Robbie xx
I used a cute wee character called Billy from a Kanban Patchwork Pals kit purchased on impulse from QVC a while ago.
He is die cut and has a back and front view designed for using on aperture cards or on cut away cards, like I have done here.
My only complaint about this kit is that some of the front and back pieces don't match up very well ... and in fact I'll need to give Billy another wee trim before popping him in his envelope.
Hey! ... That cheeky wee monkey looks like he's eyeing up my paper stacks don't you think?
The papers are scraps of Basic Grey - Colour Me Silly and CCSR -The Big One that were left over from previous projects, and they are matted onto gold mirri card which serves a dual purpose of not only looking good but also strengthening the card so it is extra sturdy and stands properly.
**If you click on the images they will show full size.**
My other offering before lights out is something of a completely different nature.
Funky Fairys Challenge #30 is a sketch by Joanne and as I had printed off some free downloads from the Funky Fairys Inspiration blog a couple of days ago and they were pleading with me to be used, I took pity on them and had a play.
Now I confess I had to correct a wee mistake which wasn't noticed until I thought I was finished, but I think I got away with it.
Shhhhhh ... don't tell.
**Lesson learned .... must start printing the sketch to refer to and not rely on my rather inadequate memory.**
The lush wide black velvet ribbon was a bargain buy from Morrisons in their January sale ... reduced to 25p from £1.50 so I cleaned them out of their remaining stock and the black felt flowers were another bargain but apologies because I can't remember where from.
"Time for bed!" said Zeb ... will see you all later and thanks for visiting.
