Hello, and welcome!
A special welcome to Jacki, who is a new follower....wavin' atcha, Jacki!
Well, I'll tell ya where I've been....for the past flippin' week I've been right here, twiddlin' my thumbs, waitin' to get back on-line! My poor ickle, hardworking netbook seemed to have a humuongous virus that got into every nook and cranny, and other nefarious places......screens flashin' and closin'.....pop-ups that no lady should be lookin' at.....and my in-house 'puter nerd (sorry Ian) couldn't look at it 'til last night, and then, within a few minutes, he'd diagnosed the problem....turn off the router and switch back on!!!
So, got just a tad of catchin' up to do........skimmed the emails...deleted.....now workin' through over 300 blog posts......and NO.....I can't skim......all those bloggers are talkin' to ME, so 'twould be rude to ignore 'em, lol!
Got a card for you.........
Wanted a pretty, feminine card for a good friend in the U.S......so I'm hopin' she liked it......
white textured card blank, layered with scraps (that heap is NOT gettin' smaller) and more of the same white cardstock, which I punched with a Martha Stewart lace edge border punch..... inked the edges after using a corner punch.....
The sentiment is a freebie digi (I think TLC), which I cut with a Nestie, edged with ink, and then glittered up with ModPodge (that ickle pot goes on and on!), then layered onto another Nestie label, which was a different shape....I like the effect.......
I'm quite chuffed with how these flowers turned out.....wanted different sizes of the same flower and didn't have anything suitable, so I doodled 'em onto cream copy paper...YEP! Me!....never doodled before, so was quite pleased with 'em. Cut them out, inked the petals with peach Promarkers, filled in the centres with black Promarker, gliitered with MP, and put a dollop of Anita's 3D glaze in the centres.......
That's the lacy border punch on the bottom of the white cardstock layer...just a touch of the peach PM, and tied the black gingham ribbon around, then added the peachy/pinky glittery strip (it's just pushed through the knot in the gingham bow)....
Oops....almost forgot to mention the leaves......didn't doodle 'em.....tried, but they looked like old teabags! These are stamped onto the same cream paper, and treated the same way as the flowers........tadaah!
Would love to know what you think....so get in touch.... I really missed you all!
