Well... in honour of the fact that my lovely OH and me are off tomorrow for a couple of days at a fabbie spa hotel, I decided to make a card to mark the occasion! So out came LOTV Positively Pampered.. And yes, she had to be all pink and glittery (we'll maybe just refer to this in future as 'a la Christine..' hehe!
I coloured her with copics and promarkers, and I did try various embellishments including ribbons and bows with this image, but decided finally that she and her glitter was all that was needed - so I left her at that. I did score a grid on the card behind her, then glittered the grid with Ice Stickles... I like the look I think... No busy DP's tho to take away from her prettiness!
Now, for those hanging on tenterhooks waiting for news of my first WI meeting last week!! Well, certainly no Jam and Jerusalem despite a lot of your comments!! hehe! I'd made friends with some lovely ladies before I'd even got through the door - and they'd saved me a seat so I didn't feel so Billy No Mates! There were about 80 ladies in the meeting altogether - it's a new and really fresh WI group... and I would say the average age is around 40-45 (ish). Of course my joining raised that average a good deal! The talk was by a lady from 'Colour Me Beautiful' - and was all about the colours you should wear and how you look in the first impression you give means so much. And there was I sitting in my jeans.... Hmmmm! Anyway.... despite that, I really enjoyed the talk and made a few new friends, so a success all in all! And guess what.... the next meeting just happens to be a craft night! With....... yes, you've guessed, a card making stand!! (There is also a cross-stitch and a sugar-craft stand too). So me being me, offered to help out with the card-making. Good thinking??????? But now I think I have to come up with a project!!! HELP PLEASE!!! All suggestions gratefully received! But remember, there won't be loads of scissors or DST, and I'm not taking my copics (heaven forbid)...
Hope you're all having a good week.... I'll think of you tomorrow when I'm being pampered having my facial etc... honest!
Take care and Happy Crafting
