Oooh I feel another addiction coming on...

Hi All

Just a quickie tonight as I'm supposed to be studying figures, layouts and quotes for a new kitchen we've needed doing for nearly three years....  But I just had to take time out, didn't I?

And.... as the title suggests, I feel this addiction coming on, and it's all down to a couple of blogging friends (including Mary J) pointing me in the direction of ..... wait for it.....  'mini-cards'!  They're so easy to do - and I LOVE THEM!! lol!
Of course I had to use a little Wryn (my other addiction at the moment), this time I used Wryn and Wren... (her little bluebird) - oooh and some of her flower garden flowers too (inspiration from Delphine) I coloured her in what are my favourite ever colours (you're going to get bored with these colours from me), and gave her sparkle (though it's not showing up on this pic!)  Then I used my scalloped circle and circle nesties to cut out the shapes.  The card blank itself is my largest scalloped circle used on a piece of folded card (so double thickness).... just lay the nestie ever so slightly over the edge of the card so you get part that isn't cut as the hinge.

I distressed the edge of the smallest circle and added my fav Stickles Icicles for bling, part of a little sentiment from Pink Petticoat, some little gems, then some bits of ribbon with tiny buttons to give it some glitz.  My job for tonight is to sort out my ribbons which are now in boxes thrown all over the lounge..   I've been meaning to sort them for a while, now i HAVE to!  Well, I have to AFTER I've studied my quotes.... LOL

So what'dya think??  Careful....  it should carry an addiction warning....

Big Hugs
