I've not been about since the beginning of the week because I've had the most rotten cold and sinus infection which has left me stuck in bed...... I'm slowly mending but I can't smell, taste or hear well just now ;o( I was determined to make a card today because I figured it would stop me feeling so miserable and sorry for myself, lol! Well I did find getting creative a bit of a tonic but I was a little on the slow side...... this card took me all afternoon, hee hee!
Before I talk details about the card I do want to say a huge thank you to everyone who commented on my last card....... wow, you are such a kind lot and really give me great encouragement...... and I'm really sorry I haven't been able to comment on your creations for reasons I've just explained.
So I had the latest Just Magnolia Challenge in mind today when I started my card and chose another of the Fairytale images because I just can't put them down! This week it's the special monthly challenge called 'It Takes Two'....... and the girls are asking us to use two or more images. Well as I'm getting more confident with masking multiple images that's just what I did..... and I used elements from the Fairytale Kit as well as accessories from the Safari release and last Summer's kit too. Oh and isn't little Tink just the cutest thing ever?!!!!
My papers are Webster's Pages...... YUM....... and I got to play with my new Tim Holtz Alterations die to create the huge latch. My flowers are Prima and I created the centres by winding some thick twine. Do you like the little twigs with mini cones? I spotted them a while back when I was out walking and knew they'd suit a rustic card....... so you see, we don't have to buy everything we use ;o)
Well I might just go for a lie down now as I think I've worn myself out today.......
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!!
