I have come to the conclusion that I need to have at least 28 - 30 hours in a day, cos 24 just ain't enough! I don't know how others fit so much into their days and some of them have children to deal with too! It's now 2:30am but I couldn't leave this any longer, so here's one of the cards that I should've blogged last week but completely forgot about - sorry, too much goin' on in my mind!
There's a challenge running on the Creative Card Crew blog and it's got just under a week left on it so there's still time to enter.
We are being sponsored by Imagine That! and they're offering 3 digi's as a prize
We also have our regular sponsors, Marianne Designs, who are offering a fab prize of dies and/or stamps.
Our challenge this time is...
Embossing - wet or dry.
Here's what I did:
My image is called Nurse Ashley and was provided by our sponsors Imagine That! (They have now added this card to their shop gallery for the Nurse Ashley image!) I coloured her with the following Copics: Skin: E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; E27,Y26,24,21. Clothes; R59,37,24. 100,C9,7,5,2,1. Clipboard; E35,33,31. Eyes; YG07,05,03. I then fussy-cut around the image before adhering to the card with foam pads.
I shaped the card by making my usual square card and then cutting 3.5cm squares out of each corner to make a cross, which would later become a red cross!
I didn't use patterned papers, instead I used a Cuttlebug swirly embossing folder - thereby fulfilling the challenge! The swirly gems, ribbon and charms are from my stash.
The inside has not been decorated this time, instead I used a lovely wee verse stamp from LOTV.
So that's my belated card for the Creative Card Crew Challenge, I hope you can join us during the remainder of our challenge.
