Before I launch into today's card I'd like to thank all of you for your comments in both the Christmas and Blogaversary competitions. Your stories in both have left me laughing and all warm and fuzzy inside :-D
I thought I would give Christmas a break today and maybe that would help improve the weather :-D We've had a alot of rain lately...but that's usually typical of a) school holidays and b) Fair Fortnight! Today's supposed to be ok but from tomorrow...rain :-S
I promised you more Jack's and here is one of them....Jack and the Worm (me thinks a competition is in order to give my stamps a bit more exciting names lol)
And if you'll notice I moved away from the same layout that seemed to be planted in my brain for the last few cards.
Look what you find when you open drawers that haven't seen the light of day in years....cork!! I thought it would be perfect with Jack and the Worm (inward groan heehee) I noticed on the price sticker I bought it in Nash's .... Nash's is responsibe for all of this as it's where I took my very first beginner's stamping class (I won't bore you AGAIN with the details). My class was 10 years ago this December and it's been closed for about 8 years so that's how long people!!
Poor Mr Worm...looks like he got a right big shock when Jack pulled him from his nice warm home!
I couldn't get the sand (you could also colour it in as dirt :-D) to look textured enough so I thought my yellowy glitter would do the trick...yes or no? I used a small silver nailhead for the bucket handle screw and a big of GA on the shovel and rubber of his running shoes for a bit of effect.
I'm meeting up with Moira and her daughter Chloe this afternoon for a Ruby/Magnum/Lily catch up and possibly bounce some ideas around :-D
Hope you all have a great weekend. Don't forget to leave your comments for a chance to win the gorgeous new stamps.
Thanks for stopping by
Catch ya later x
