It's just a quick post from me today as I'm off to work, hubby's at work as usual, Jack's back at school and Lauren's heading off to Manchester for the day with her friend for some shopping & lunch (alright for some!). So I'm going to have a very sulky Tilly the Dog today when I get back from work - that after weeks of nearly always having someone here, she'll have been left on her own with just the grumpy cat for company! And the one thing that our hound craves more than anything (even doggy treats!) is company! So I'll have to do the extra-long doggy walks this evening and lots of fussing to compensate!
Today's card uses a lovely teddy stamp from LOTV (do they make any other sort?) - Patchwork Teddy.
I saw the challenge over at Lili's Little Fairies for 'Anything but a square' and decided to take up the challenge. I don't have a large die cutting machine, just a basic and much used BigShot, so any different shape was going to be self-made! Now considering my scissor skills I didn't particularly fancy cutting a large circle, and didn't have any circle shaped cards, so thought that perhaps I could manage a hexagon shape - and here is the result!
I've coloured the image with promarkers and pencils. The backing papers are from the lush new Nitwit paper pads at LOTV - ooh these are scrummy, particularly if you like making girly cards like I do!
I've used Marianne heart & swirl die cuts, and the leaves are using a new set of Spellbinder dies - 'Fall Foliage' - that I recently treated myself to! The flowers are from WOC, as is the cute heart charm. The sheer ribbon is from Joanna Sheen and the pearly heart from my stash.
So definitely a 'pink & girly' card - yet again! But I do enjoy adding all the embellishments! I don't think I'll ever manage 'clean and simple' lol!
Anyway, hope that your day goes well. I look forward to hearing all my son's tales of how his first day as a Year 9 boy went - and admiring all my daughter's purchases!
And thank you for all the lovely comments I've been receiving - they mean so much!
Back soon, Kim x
