Today was one of those grey, wet, miserable days where all you want to do is curl up with the newspapers & the tv, so that’s what I did! I thought about making cards, but just couldn’t motivate myself. I also thought about clearing up the few thousand leaves that have covered the gardenin the last two weeks, but there only a few hundred left on the tree, so I’ll wait for them to fall then clear up the lot in one go.
I’ve updated my blog list with lots of lovely blogs. It’s not possible to pick favourites, but two I really like are Fran’s WOJ blog & the House Mouse challenge blog. These stamps are really lovely & yes, they are on my list of things I ‘need’! 🙂
These are the other cards I made earlier in the week. This one is for a little boy in Texas, called Tagen. He is recovering from very serious surgery & his aunt Michelle wondered if any of those who visit her blog would like to make him a card. When he is well enough to return to school he’s going to bring all his cards for a ‘Show & Tell’. Hopefully he will like this one. When you lift the ‘get well soon’ tag the two sides open & there is Winnie The Pooh! Sarita sent me the stripy papers on the outside & the inside papers are Papermania. Jen gave me the Tigger stickers & I photocopied Winnie from the packaging & coloured him with Whispers pens, then covered him with Anita’s 3D glaze. BTW, as well as making gorgeous cards, Michelle & her hubby raise miniature donkeys, who are SO cute! The latest one, Fernando, was born last weekend – he is adorable! She has photos & video on her blog, so take a look.
Two more very simple cards. Sarita sent me the lovely stickers & I used one of Loretta’s docrafts layouts. The backing paper is adhesive vellum with Papaermania paper matted & layered on top. Eisbaerin very kindly sent me the diecut swirls a while ago & I thought they would add a finishing touch to these cards. I used a little glitter glue on the pink flower & a black adhesive gem on the hummingbird’s eye.
That’s it from me for tonight. Thanks for looking. Love & light.
