Helloooooooooo! What a glorious day! The sun is shining, it's warm and the birds are singing! Makes you glad to be alive!!!
Well my daughter Georgia had some fabulous news this week when she found out she got an A* for her Media GCSE coursework...... she's worked so hard and so deserves to do well. She had to create her own magazine layout, four pages in total...... but of course she went the extra mile and produced a WHOLE magazine!!!!! I wish it could go on general sale in the shops so you could all take a peek, lol!
I just had to make her a card to let her know how proud her family is...... and the sentiment 'Fabulous Darling' was the perfect choice! There's a fab sketch over at Friday Sketchers this week so I decided to follow the layout and that's how my card came together. I'm also entering A Spoon Full Of Sugar where the theme this week is 3D....... well I raised my image and butterfly so I think that works. The pretty papers are Basic Grey and I used one of the new Tildas from the Fairytale collection. I held back on adding too many flowers and embellies but did manage to cut out a bit of the paper to create a butterfly. Oh and I embossed a panel behind Tilda because I feel that my embossing folders seem to get overlooked these days! Finally here's a close up of Tilda so you can see the glittery bits..... it's always so hard to photograph the sparkle on cards I think but this captures it well enough ;o)
Well I hope you enjoy your day..... I'm working but I can still look at the sun through the office window and I might just nip out at lunchtime and eat my sarnies on the grass behind the car park!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
