Well what a couple of weeks I've had: My husband has been completely incapacitated with a bulging disc...and my son and his wife have gone to Europe for five weeks, so we are (supposed to be) covering his work too, suffice to say "scramble" doesn't begin to describe it. We've been living at Doctors and Therapists trying to get poor hubby to the stage where he can at least walk to his excavator, hoping that once he gets there, operating it won't be a problem! I can operate it, but can't load or unload it....and anyway I'm so SLOOOOOOW!!
It hasn't left a whole lot of time for crafting, but I have managed to make a couple of cards. Here is today's:
The stamps are the new CC Designs release from All That Scraps "Shopping Lady" and "Party Lady" they are available from Friday 10th June. Get over to the ATS blog and check out the rest of the DT projects. These are Digis, of course! I AM a digi girl! Stamp Something has it's regular Digi Day challenge on, so I've entered there.
I used paper from Kaisercrafts After Five Collection - "stripes" is the challenge at The Crafty Pad this week- and used Copics mainly from the RV's. so it fits Stamptacular Sundays colour challenge this time which is to use ONLY Black, White, Hot Pink and Tan. The "tan" is a bit more grey than the photo inspiration, but hopefully close enough.
The brads are from my stash, as is the ribbon, the slider is part of my birthday gift from my youngest son...it has been great, a sort of lucky dip!
I used stickers as borders around the images and around the edges of the inside panels of the card...I have an expanding file full of these things that I never use any more; maybe now I will as I'm happy with how it looks. I used Nestabilities Labels Nine to cut a hole in more of the Kaisercraft paper to leave a window to write in. I used the die cut to embellish the other panel which I had to line to cover the join of the ribbon.
I made my own sentiment, it says; "Hip Chick by Day, Urban Sophisticate by Night...........are you TRYING to make the rest of us look bad????" We all know someone this sentiment would suit don't we? lol. I used a font that I felt matched the image and paper for each "style" of lady.
Make It Colourful has Cast Your Shadows as it's challenge theme this time, I've cast some but chickened out and used a front-on light source to make it simple! Hope it still counts!
Craft Your Passion and Papertake Weekly both have Anything Goes as their current challenge theme, at least I don't have to worry if it "fits' there :-)
That's about it for what is essentially a very simple card. I'll be back in a few days with some more cards including one that I've made for my GDT spot at Here Come The Boys. Until then, Happy Crafting, Dee......oh, and look after your back - you've only got one and it's a real pain (literally) when it "goes" on you :-)
