Hi everyone.....well unusually for the week, a quiet one tonight which gave me some time to make my dads birthday card (its in a couple of weeks). I knew exactly what I was going to make for him, I wanted my chillout hedgie on some deckchair type paper. So Penny black "lazy days" was painted with some pearlised paint and I used some more Basic Grey paper. I bought the pearlised paint today from "the works" for £2.99 and was well impressed, lovely pearly paint....and so cheap!
The other card was one of those that I started with no direction whatsoever, it just sort of grew, LOL. The stamp is another hedgie "Country lady" which was an ebay purchase..then I found a pearly patterned card, which sadly doesn't show up to well in the picture but its swirly pink. Then I used a strip of basic grey, a sticky ribbon from QVC, another pink oval bit for the message and a "colorflower tag". I used a bit of organza ribbon, I love organza, don't really know why....
Oh and I ordered some new stamps yesterday...Tilda and Edwin ones from Magnolia, so am waiting impatiently for them to arrive now hehehe
It is lovely to see people begin to comment on my blog. I have been so chuffed that people are leaving comments, so thank you. It is also rather wonderful to be sent hugs all the way from Florida ( I do hope your weather is better than ours ;-))......I don't think I will ever get to the stage where I am not in awe of the power of the internet - it is amazing stuff how it links us all despite thousands of miles :-)
