Mornin! Welcome to another TLT challenge .... this week is the turn of our flabulous Guest Designer Amanda. Sadly this is her last week with us and I know we're going to miss her :-( But you never know...you might just see her here again...stranger things have happened!!! Thank you Amanda for your beautiful cards this past month. Good luck in all you do :-D
Before I yak on about my card ask yourself this question...Am I a winner??? You'll never know unless you make your way to the Challenge Blog lickety split....good luck!!!
Ok, here we go. Amanda's challenge is Make Your Own Flowers...she couldn't have picked a better one since I seem to be making flowers for all my cards these days so I've had plenty of practise. Not that you'd know it looking at my efforts this week lol.
I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and use this challenge to make my MIL her mother's day card. You'll have to excuse the pictures. I finally dragged out my lightbox but one of the lights isn't working. I changed the bulb but it's still not lighting up so I had to make do with a daylight lamp and Photoshop hmph!
Anyhoo I thought Dressing Up Robyn would be perfect so I stamped her with Momento ink and coloured her with my Copics. I mixed it up a bit and made a gatefold card. This one's smaller than my usual square card...it's 4 1/4" x 4 1/4". I used kraft cs for the base and mounts and Imaginesce pp to decorate the panels and inside.
I kept the glitter to a minimum...I know what's wrong with me lol?!!!
My not-so-perfect flowers
I think this is my favourite part...her sparkly socks lol!!
Luckily I don't have to worry about my mom's card till May which I'll be able to spend with her for the first time in years!!!! I make Sadie one every year too as she's like a surrogate mom.
Sue may or may not have her card posted on her blog today because she had a total computer melt down yesterday :-S She's been working hard at getting it fixed but if her card is not up today it will be some time this week. You will see it on the Challenge Blog so you will get a sneak peek but make sure you keep checking and leave her some ladybug love. You'll find plenty of inspiration from the rest of the Ladybugs in the meantime so off you go, put the kettle on and enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by...hope you have a great TLT!
Catch ya later x
