Anyway, this week Jane set the challenge for the Daring Cardmakers and asked us all to use a quotation on our cards.
As I said, I do tend to get bogged down looking for inspiring quoations, so when I remembered the little Quote Bubbles paper in my Bubbly Funk May kit designer box I was quite chuffed.
Stamped, Computer Generated or Rub Ons; it doesn't matter and youWith being away, and having a load of catching up stuff to do I didn't get my card started till well after 10am and it was only finished, ooooh about half an hour ago - so not a case of "Last Minute Minnie" this time - more a case of "Well After the Last Minute Minnie".
can choose your own style or occasion.
Must admit it's a bit of a rush job, and I should probably have taken a bit more time over this, but I wanted to get it done and up on the blog. I missed last week's dare and I'm never happy when I do that, so I wanted to get a card made for Jane's dare even if it was a bit late.
Papers are the fabby Dream Street "Birdie Bits" which I love so much that I've almost used them all up. The pinky-red hearts are cut from some of that gorgeous velvet paper that was in the kit and I've only cut tiny bits from because it's too lush to use!
I hand cut the little flowers from scraps of the papers, I love the way this set of papers lends itself so well to handcutting some nicely random flowers and hearts etc
Lots of inking, gel pen scribbles and a little bit of glitter glue for some extra glitz
We've said a fond farewell and a big Thank You to May's Guest Designer Vanessa this week, and Hello and Welcome to the fabulous Jozza who is joining us for the whole of this month - so even if you're bored with the rest of us, pop along to the blog and see what Jozza has come up with, and of course check out her other wonderful stuff on her blog
The sun has gone in now (hope it comes back soon) but I thought I'd share a couple of photos I took this morning when it was being all sunshiney out in the garden
And here's how our veg patch is looking this morning
