Good afternoon peeps..... I was about to say good morning but where did that go, lol?!
I want to show you a card today that I've made for my niece. It's her birthday at the end of August and she'll be turning sixteen.... not sure where the time goes but that makes me feel old! Well she's a huge Twilight fan so I thought I'd make her a card with an Edward lookalike, aka one of the Wild Sprouts stamps from The Greetings Farm. Now I'm sorry if this upsets a few of you but I have to say I really do not suffer from this Obsessive Cullen Disorder...... eeewwwww, so not my cup of tea! Give me a bit of humour anytime; Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Carribean hits the spot for me, lol! Look at it this way, if I don't like Mr Cullen then at least there's more of him to go round for those that do, hee hee!
Anyway, this stamp works perfectly and so does the castle window stamp by Magnolia. I even managed to salvage a few bats from the border that I cut out with my EK Success punch, so I was able to make them look like they're flying through the window.
I'm so pleased with how this turned out because it's exactly what I had pictued in my mind. And I had great fun playing with my new paper stash..... I managed to get hold of some of the yummy new 6x6 Memory Box pads Emma has just received in her store here. This one is called Blackbird and is perfect for all things Autumn and Halloween..... be quick to order if you fancy some though, they're selling really fast!
I'm entering my card into this week's Stamping For The Weekend Challenge as the theme is 'anything goes'. I might be back to add a few more challenges later when I've had a nosy to see what else my card fits in with.
Well sorry for the long, waffly post today. Have lots of fun today and enjoy the start to your weekend.
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!!
