Dot Dot Dot Dash Dash Dash
We'd like you to make a card featuring dots and dashes, spots and stripes - that's it, a nice easy and fun little theme for you to play with - just make sure you get both spots AND stripes on your card.
The papers are perfect "boy" ones, I think - they're from Junkitz and came from one of the lovely Bubbly Funk Kits - ok so I know Di spends hours designing the most wonderful projects to make with the kits, but I'm just SUCH a rebel, and if the paper fits, well.....
Letters, number and little dots were cut with the Robo - I cut the letters in a few layers of plain card, plus a top one of patterned paper and stuck them all together - a bit of a faff tbh - there must be an easier way. The letters and tiny dots were all given the Glossy Accent treatment. The ricrac I bought as my donation to a forum swap - I bought way too much and whilst it looked funky in the shop by the time I got it home I thought it looked revolting but you see, even this came in useful eventually - give it time and all your stash will come into it's own. Well maybe not those peeloffs.....This card is for niece - Emily, would you believe?
Now here's the really really amazing thing - I made this using the August SA Kit which arrived YESTERDAY - I don't think I've ever managed to make anything using bits from a kit so promptly - proud of myself? You betcha!
paper is KI Memories
Flower is made up of two felt ones and a paper one - added a bit of silver glitter glue to the back felt one - well a 9 year old girl can't have enough glittery stuff, can she?
Letters QK Olivia alpha in different coloured glitter card
big buton and tiny buttons from the stash, along with the various ribbons and brads
Had to wait till the glitter glue and Perfect Pearls dried so I could wrap this up in her parcel to take ot the post. By which time the heavens had opened and I got absolutely drenched.
Did wonders for my cold, I'm sure! Went to the chemist and bought more lemsips to nurse it with, then when I got home I made a coffee and a lemsip - only I put the milk in the lemsip instead of the coffee, yeeeeuuuuuuuucccchhhhh I told you I wasn't well, didn't I?
