Let's not be square!!
Hi Best Blogging Buddies..
It's that time again.. two whole weeks have gone by (in a blur for me as there's been so much going on....)... and it's time for another challenge at Anything Goes! We had some fabulous entries for the lavender challenge.... have you checked to see if you were a winner???
This time, the theme is 'Let's not be Square'. This is a big one for me, as I tend to stick like glue to my squares.... but I'd seen that hexagons are creeping in lately on the cardmaking scene..... so decided to try my luck!! And try my luck it WAS! There are no hexagon dies available yet (at least none I can find..), so I had to dig out my compass..... and dig out my brain cells, and give it a go!! And the result is quite good if I do say so myself!! At least all the sides measure the same.... which is kind of the point.
The image I chose to use is a Whimsie Doodles Image called Leah's Secret.... she is ssssooooo cute!! I coloured her with copics and promarkers. I cut the card blank with my craft knife, then used kraft card as the base... then the pink dotty (sorry it was a scrap so no name), then a bit of white run through the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I distressed the edges of both of these. The hearts (like my recent card) are a Memory Box Die called Heart Chain. The sentiment is a Hero Arts Alphabet that I've had in for years...... about time it was used... then of course we have the glitter and Stickles!! Well, I couldn't miss it out could I? And yes.... I've used loads of PINK!!
Now, check out my lovely teamies' creations if you need inspiration.... and we look forward to seeing your fabulous entries!
Hopefully when this post appears, I'll be on the Isle of Wight... we've popped down to say hello to my OH's new grandson (so nearly my grandson but not quite!! hehe), He was born last week after keeping his Mummy waiting nearly a week and a half before he deigned to make his entrance! They live in Bournemouth, and we will also see his other two grandchildren too.... so lots of hugs and cuddles! Then, while we are going to be on the coast, we couldn't resist going over to see our friends on the Island for a quick visit. But if all goes well, we'll be back by tonight (Tues)! Can you tell how much faith I have in scheduled posts?? hehe
Happy crafting to you all.......
