Wow...I can't believe my house is still standing after the winds yesterday (up to 100mph)! I hope everyone affected by the GFW are safe and haven't had too much damage to their property. I thought we'd gotten away with a few patio chairs blowing around but a HUGE tree at the bottom of our yard on the other side of the fence fell into our yard taking some of the fence with it. I haven't managed to get a picture yet but will post one later. Also our heavier than heavy BBQ was lifted and blown across the patio!! Mother Nature is so not happy :-(
With the winds came the inevitable power cuts and yup you guessed it...we lost power for over 4 hours. I managed to get everything but the sewing done and just before 8pm the lights etc flickered and I was finally able to finish my card. With the pictures finally taken and Photoshopped (I think Pinky was stressing as my card hadn't appeared until after 10pm last night :-S) here is the end result....
There are so many LCI stamps to choose from that have animals but I hadn't inked up Buttercup - In the Doghouse in a while so I did lol. I coloured her in with my Copics, cut her out with my Nesties and mounted her on scalloped green cs. What do you think of the pp? Isn't it stunnalicious! As I was about to pay for my things at Precious Memories after my demo, I noticed this gorgealicous Basic Grey pp called Sweet Threads. I only bought one sheet each of 5 in the range so I'm kicking myself I didn't get more.
Poor Buttercup...she doesn't look too happy now her house is sold. I made up the sentiment with my favourite alphabet set.
I wanted to give the card a bit of dimension so I stamped the image twice (which means colouring it twice!) and cut out one, including Buttercup, and sticking it over the main image using dimensional foam pads so it looks like Buttercup is actually in the house.
It would have been rude not to use my EK Success paw punch and I found this megalicious crinkly ribbon I bought sometime last year.
Thank you to my lovely Ladybug Pinky for choosing this weeks challenge...I'm sorry if I stressed you out lol.
Now don't forget to check to see if you're a winner from last weeks Challenge. If you see your name in the #1 spot email me with your chosen stamp and where you want me to send it.
Before I forget I want to apologise for the lack of words in my post last week lol. Before I left for Vancouver I uploaded all the photographs and was going to write up the posts once I was there. I did the first one fine but then we went to the States all day on the following Monday and didn't get back till late and I totally forgot about it until I woke the next morning! By that time it was well into the afternoon here and apart from thinking you'd enjoy a quick post for a change and not have to read all the rubbish I write, I didn't have the energy. I know some of my team were a bit concerned as they say I'm never lost for words lol.
Anywho, thanks for dropping in. I hope you enjoy this weeks challenge and the inspiration the team have for you. Why not let us know what you think by leaving a comment...we LOVE to hear from you :-D
Catch ya later x
