Tired with all that running around!!

Well a day off!! no running up and down the M62!! well not until tomorrow any way!! I spent some of this morning visiting peoples WoYWW, but haven't finished yet...

so had a bit of a play, finished the Crafty Characters card I was making yesterday...

Cant wait to see her reaction, but I'll have to duck the Rock cakes she'll throw, hence the buns in the piccy lol

My Craft Studio Artists Collection, Crafty Characters Disk, for the image, various added images from the internet of crafting machines that I know she has, such as the Grand Calibur, Silhouette SD, and Black Cat cougar, Spellbinders Iron Works Accents border die and Anemone and Daisy Flower Topper dies, some Papermania blue paper, lost the front sheet so don't know which collection but its a floral, some card and ribbon from the stash!! The edges were punched with the X-cut 4cm Border Scallop punch, and MCS Snow embellishment was used around the edge of the cloud. Added a couple of bits of thin ribbon, and glazed some of the decoupage for extra umpf.

Next up was a Topper I found in my Scraps stash, don't know what I intended to do with it originally, but its from My Craft Studio Walk in Winter Wonderland CD2 .I used MCS Frost embellishment glitter, with a quickie Glue pen, to "Ice" the Frosting on the Bauble, cut a Holly Border Matt on the Silhouette, on some graduated green card, and used Ink It Up Kelley Green Pigment ink to colour the edges a bit more. The I routed one of My Hunky Dory Square Frame Cards out, and again distressed it using the Kelley Green, added a bit of Ribbon from my stash and hey presto, a Pretty little card.

Right I have to head off to bed, for another run up and down the M62 tomorrow!!! Why did DD have to decide to move so far away, yet still want Mum, so much? Well she'll be out of luck next week, I'm of Down the M62 to show a friend how to use the Silhouette, then off to the NEC, YIPPEE!!

Loving he first card - so true of so many of us, thankfully I don't have the another half to answer to, just my conscience - though that's as annoying sometimes. Thanks for stopping by my blog, no we don't have to have studios lol it's just a posh word for room, mines the teeniest weeniest room ever, and outside I have a shed!! lol but as long as there's some paper and a paintbrush I say it's a studio hehe much love Jennibellie

Thanks for visiting my blog. I love your green card. You obviously like die-cutting too.
Do let me know if you make a little tree like mine on your silhouette. I am sure I can do it on craftrobo, but unfortunately my machine packed up this week.(It is from the very first issue so about eight years old I think; could be more). I moved it and there must have been something loose inside that moved, because it now fuses most of the house when I turn it on. We have changed fuses, plugs and cables to no effect so my lovely Chris says he will buy me a silhouette at Christmas! So I can't try out my method for doing the tree until next year.
Have a great day at NEC. I used to live near Shrewsbury and went to the show every year. I now live in Spain and had planned to come back for it this month but I brought my visit forward six weeks to attend a family funeral, so my sister and I made do with a visit to Ally Pally instead. Kate x
