I've not fallen off the face of the earth.......
Well here I am (eventually I hear you say?) with another card! 'Bout time too!! Sorry about my absence from posting.... my lovely OH had a few days hol after working very hard over Christmas - so we took some 'quality time' together.... nothing exciting - just a few lunches out and pottering in each other's company... we both enjoy our 'together bubble'... so cardmaking was a lower priority!! That said - I did manage to get some extra shelves up in my craft room.... but we WERE together making them!! (Me bossing the job of course.... hehe.. you know how it goes? 'up a bit....... down a bit.... stop.... DRILL!') So now my endless nesties have found a fab new home in CD organisers on my new shelves! YAYY!!
He's at work today, so I'm sitting here on my own, with SuBo on Spotify - singing at the top of my voice.. I'm sure I could sing as good as her ........ "I dreamed a dream........" cough, cough, splutter! Actually her rendition always brings tears to my eyes... but that never takes much!
OK I'm waffling (well I have no one to talk to today!!). Onto my card! This one was inspired by the lovely Lisa over at Wishcraft... when I saw her creation using Daisy a week or so ago I was so impressed I really had to make!! And I have her to thank for the RAK when I couldn't get hold of the rubber as it seems now not in production, she very kindly let me have one of hers... thank you Lisa!
Anyway, I coloured Daisy using a mixture of copics and promarkers... I did try not to use pinks as Lisa had used pinks on hers and I didn't want to copy too much... so I chose lilacs and lavenders ...... but I have to say, they look pink to me.... sorry Lisa! I used my square nestie to cut the image, and sponged around the edge while the nestie was still attached with a shadow blue on a make up sponge! The paper is from the Kaisercraft Bubblegum Hills collection and is called Candy Confetti.... ooooh and it's so lovely to use! I did an embossed panel of daisies from Bazzil pink..... which also forms the base of the card. I've added a little bow from fine string, and some buttons from my stash. Oooh and i SO NEARLY forgot to mention... I added just a little bit of glitter too!! LOL!
So there you go.... I'm back! Btw, I have been having lots of trouble commenting on some of your blogs in the last few days.... even though I've not been posting cards, I have kept up with my commenting..... but think Blogger is misbehaving! So if you normally get comments from me and haven't.... It's not been for the lack of trying!
Oh and some exciting news too... I was contacted by a lovely lady over in the States the other day who asked me to do some cards for her as she'd come across my blog.... so I've also been busy fulfilling that order! How exciting to think my cards are going world-wide!! LOL
Sorry for my waffling...... hope you like Daisy as much as I do.
Thanks for any comments which I love to read..
