Last day off :(

Hello everyone.

Today is my last day off. :(  after this we are not permitted holiday in December so I'm making the most of it.  I've spent this morning revision for my forthcoming exam, and now I'm doing what I love most... getting covered in glitter and glue and creating.

Firstly I'll share what I've made over the last couple of days.

When experimenting with the All dressed up digi stamps, I printed many different sizes and shapes (so I didn't waste card) so I've used some of them up to create these lovely cards.

This first one I want to enter into:

All dressed up - ribbon and lace
Flutterby Wednesday  - sketch challenge 262#
apologies, but the white on the side of the card, has affected the exposure of the overall photo, I've tried adjusting but its not the best!

Using blue spotty backing paper (actually from a christmas paper pack!) and following the sketch on Flutterby wednesday I constructed the back ground.  die cut the little girl, and coloured using promarkers (Glacier blue, soft aqua, denim, almond, blush, ivory, vanilla, coco, sandstone, tan).  I used white organza ribbon and coloured with denim promarker for colour match, made a cute bow and layered everything up.  finished with two punched butterflies, covered with versamark and Blue blast (Wow) embossing powder

The second one is my my Nieces Birthday next week not to enter into any challenges just for fun!

I already had the image, and so I printed purple backing paper (although it doesn't look very purple in the picture??) and flowers in the same colour.  The then cut out the flowers, shaped and glued, and added glitter to the centres.  The image is coloured in promarkers (vanilla, tan, sandstone, cocoa, almond, dusky link, blush, sun-kissed pink, amethyst, lilac, light mauve and aubergine).  the butterfly is a little wooden shape, covered with versamark and Judikins purple sparkly embossing powder)

Hope you like them - oh and welcome to the new members - it makes me do a little happy dance when I see new people are interested in what I have to say and make!! 

If you do stop by - please leave me a message I'm off to make Harrison's cards for his friends at nursery - I went to The Range yesterday and they have cute little 3 x 3 and 4 x 4 square cards, so it will be easy to make and mass produce using some toppers I've got!

ps - back with the new Friday sketch challenge tomorrow morning - don't miss it!
