Lythan is up to her usual tricks and has set a fiendish dare this week for the Daring Cardmakers.
Song without wordsI would like you to create a card inspired by a song or a carol - it could be for Christmas or not! (you may have got all your Christmas cards done by now...)
BUT there is a twist.
the words of the song are NOT to be seen on the front of the card. You could leave it to us to guess! Have fun!We're a bit "under-staffed" this week, Jane's taken a bit of a tumble (but she's on the mend now), Gill has donned her cute nurse's outfit and is nursing her mum after quite a big op and her daughter who had a bit of an accident the other day, our expectant mums are in need of plenty of rest (Tracie is in hospital atm to make sure of it) and lots of tlc and then there's just "real life" which has a happy knack of getting in the way of our cardmaking - especially at this time of the year. So a reduced range of cards to look at, but hopefully more appearing soon!
Anyway, here's mine
In the words of Rolf Harris "Can you tell what it is yet?" If you get stuck, click the link ad the bottom of this message for enlightenment!All the silhouette bits were cut with the Craft Robo - bless his little cotton socks - he's such a hero at times like this!
Plain black card, silver card for backing the bits, dark blue glitter card, punched glitter card snowflakes and stars, Robo-ed lettering and a bit of Krylon silver pen for good measure. Not sure what I'll do with this one when it comes to sending our cards out though!
And another one - a bit of a cheat as I needed to add a word to make this work.....
Loads of layers of different papers and the like, some punched stars and snowflakes and some super-pretty fibres
Bubbly Funk are holding a Christmas cybercrop tomorrow, and organisers Caroline and Di asked me to help out. I know Rosie has posted sneak peeks of her classes and it's such a good idea for whetting the appetite I thought I'd pinch it too!
So here are a few glimpses from my projects.
Still need some help with the song title?
