Good morning ladies, hope you are all having a great day! My throat feels worse today than it did yesterday but I don't have a headache today and hopefully it won't come back so I can do some bloghopping today :)
The challenge at Cute Daisy May this week is "Wild Thing"- use an animal on your card.
I done my DT card the other day while I was feeling not too bad, but I rushed it because incase I started feeling worse and just as well I did because 10 minutes after making it, I wanted to die!
I must say, it's not one of the best cards I have ever made. I don't like the papers and my colouring is rubbish because my Copics are running out again!! You would think I coloured with them every day or something lol.
I don't think my little elephants look very wild though lol, but they are really cute. They are of course from one of Linnies Cute Daisy May sheets. It was one image but I cut them out so I could put them closer together so they would fit on the oval. If you haven't checked out the Cute Daisy May sheets yet, where have you been all this time?? They are only £1.99 a sheet and you get 4 or sometimes more images on a sheet! I don't know about you, but I know I have paid that for one image, and your getting at least 4 images per sheet. There are lots of Daisy May girls to choose from, and she has them in babies, little girls and grown up Daisy, and as you can see here Linnie has also done animals and the cutest snowmen ever, seriously you got to check out the snowmen. I do have a little thing about snowmen just now so you might just be seeing lots of them soon. If you wan't to try before you buy, Linnie has a freebie sheet in her store which I just had to snag as it has the cutest snowman on it as well as some other lovely images. Then you can coem join in with our challenges :) You don't have to use a Daisy May image though to join in with the challenges, you can use any image you like, and it doesn't have to be digi's, you can even use your rubber stamps :) So go on what you waiting for? Get your bum over there and join in and you could win some more fab Cute Daisy May images for your efforts :)
Sorry this post is beginning to get a bit too looong. Can you see how much I have missed blogging while I've been ill? I just have to keep typng to make up for it lol.
Anyway back to the card. I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday. I wasn't going to enter it because I really don't like this card but I won't get another one done this week. The papers are Papermania and I got them on sale for 99p for about 60 or 70 8x8" sheets! That's probably why I am not so keen on them because I didn't have to spend a fortune to get them lol.
You can't really see but I punched the swirly paper with my Fiskars scalloped edge punch inkeeping with the sketch. Most of the flowers were from Lorraine (hope your back on line soon hun, I miss you loads mmwahh) she sent me the little roses aon the outside flowers in the blog candy I won a while ago, and the bigger flowers were ones she sent to my Daughter Rhianna for her birthday but I pinched some from her because I didn't have any purple flowers that fitted. Of course I had to give her another handfull of my Primas before she would give me them. Think I woul dmaybe be cheaper just buying sme purple flowers of my own lol. The other flowers are Prima and a little organza ribbon rose that I got in a card making set months ago from the £1 shop. Only bought it for these flowers and some little buttons, the rest went to the kids. And finally the ribbon is some from my local haberdashery. I got 2 meters of this one and 2 meters each of the same in pink and green all for £1.50! Can you see why I love that shop?? I have paid more than that for 1 meter of ribbon and I got 6 meters :) So overall I think this is a very cheap card lol, it's made with just bargains or freebies lol. Think my base cardstock was more expensive than the whole card pmsl.
Right I promise not to write anymore! I'm off to check out your blogs.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my looong post that has probably sent you into dream land.
Hugs Lora xx
