Tuesday morning and that means another new challenge at LEJ DESIGNS and the challenge is "Lots of Layers".Mine hasn't got as many layers as I would have liked,but after having to buy a new printer -as Matthew took the printer when they moved house(well it was his and he needs it for work)then I couldn't get the laptop to recognise it(what did it expect a printer to look like anyway!!!)Had to wait for Matthew to call in then I couldn't get it to print aaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!so it ended up being a very quick card this after-noon,hopefully this printer has got over its hissy fit!ANYWAY I used a new digi from Lindsay "Gertrude" at the Bingo,coloured with promarkers,Tim Holtz B.paper,hessian mesh,bulldog clip from stash and die corners,kraft cardstock from Papermill Direct.It's also my birthday today and Ellie and Holly-Anne are coming for lunch instead of staying pack-up at school,and Helen is coming later too.OOH not going to see girls for lunch after all they are both in bed ill with some kind of virus so will have to visit later .

Fourth attempt card!!!

Now I chose this image because I liked it BUT after the fourth attempt the attraction has slightly waned!On the first attempt I messed up the very last part I coloured,the second attempt I decided to colour the skin with my new copics WRONG she ended up looking like a satsuma!Had to print off another image(grandaughters had used the last ones)and my memory stick which I keep all my images on decided not to work???so had to print one off the DT blog,so this simple card has taken me nearly all day!I stamped a phone image on the card blank(linen card from Papermill direct)paper is K&C,buttons,liquid pearls from stash,used my new corner die from Joanna Sheen.The image is "Sweet talk Sassy" finally coloured with promarkers -from Sassy Studio Designs our sponsor this week at ARTISTIC INSPIRATIONS and the challenge is BUTTONS-now how easy is that? she says ironically lol we all have buttons in our stash don't we?course we do.

Spotlight Technique

The house is very quiet at the moment as Matthew,Tasha and grandaughters have gone to Cornwall for a week,they went 5o'clock yesterday morning and came in to give us a kiss and cuddle before they went bless them.They have also got their own house now too and get the keys on the Monday after they come home on the saturday and move in on the 13th,and daughter Helen has also been reconciled with her husband and also moving out-so we are going from seven to two -just me and John(does this mean we have to actually speak to each other now? lol)Luckily they are all just 10mins walk away.
My card today is for the new challenge at 613 Avenue Create "Spotlight Challenge"and this is my first try at this technique and not totally happy with it,not sure if I picked the right image for this technique.The sponsors are-
Sandies samples and Di's Digis.I have used a LOTV rubber stamped image "Little Girls Story time"-I have had this stamp about three years and never used it,I stamped the image twice and cut a circle for the coloured part,faux stitched round the image,the papers are Tim Holtz-crowded attic,tonic border punch and banner die,coloured cardstock from Papermill Direct and added liquid pearls and a gem brad.
