Can you tell i'm bored yet?
Only kidding; I've just had time to play today so, without further ado, this is my entry into the challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

This is my first attempt at a Steampunk card. I only recently bought some cling stamps from Inkydoodles and ebay which feature time and cogs, so i had a go at using elements from the pack on the card.
7gypsies provided the sentiment as I have some rub-ons which I keep looking at and putting away again without using and I just hope you like it!



Hello again!

Earlier I said nothing much happens on a Thursday so I made it happen - another card for another challenge!

Actually, it has taken me most of the afternoon, just faffing about, to make it!

I used generice white cardstock for the card base, topped with black and white spotty paper.
I die-cut a scalloped circle from ivory pearlised card and mounted a white circle onto it.
I found the umbrella and boots image online last year and saved the jpeg for future use! Good thinking Batman!!!
Instead of printing and colouring the image, I paper-pieced it onto coloured card and used black glitter on the joins!!!
Anyhoo, it's my intention that it goes into the loved up challenge at Cardmaking and Papercraft.

Belt card

Morning everybody.

Nothing much happens on Thursdays does it?
Today is different!
Darling daughter is starting a new job today so a massive round of applause goes to her and I know she will be brilliant and do the new company proud (just hope her team of staff behave for her!!!)

Last night I thought it would be a good idea to enter a challenge at Daring Cardmakers with the theme Belts/Braces!
I wondered how my idea would translate to be honest? isn't how i envisaged it but here it is anyway.
