A little stripey attitude...


Hi Peeps

Well I'm back from my hols in France.... Miss me??  We had a lovely time, but a tad wet for the last few days...  however we did manage to see all the sites in the Dordogne and I even climbed to the very top of a massive big hill with a castle on it...  (and I'm not a castle person really)....  ahhhhhhh the things we do for love!

Onto my card...  today's challenge at Totally Gorjuss is 'Stripes'...  so I decided to go bold and use a pre-coloured topper that I'd bought from The Hobby House - it's Kenny K's Queen's Cutie.....  isn't she just so sassy??  I actually trimmed her to a rectangle as the topper was shaped...  then I doodled around her.  OF COURSE, she just had to have a bit of glitter on her hat and trainers... and all I did otherwise to the image was to give her a little shading with my copics... W1 and W3 around the edges to give her depth.


I used a Cuttlebug chevron embossing folder for the texture on the other piece of card...  the stripey paper I can't tell you the name of I'm sorry as it was a piece in my stash.. I did the sentiment on the PC ... and then I added some gems to finish.

I'd love you to pop over to Totally Gorjuss to see what my teamies have come up with too...  our sponsor this time is Crafters' Companion... so you could win yourself something nice if you enter...

It looks like it may be a wet weekend here in Wetherby... so after I've finished the mountain of washing and ironing I brought back, I just MAY get some play time!

Oooh and I will try to be around next week.... but my youngest daughter arrives on Monday for a visit for a couple of weeks (for those that don't know, she lives in Bermuda)...  so my commenting may be a bit sparse.. Hope you'll forgive me!

Big hugs to all and Happy Crafting...
