Hi there, how's it going today. This post was originally intended for 8.00am yesterday, and here we are, over 33 hours later! This is what happens when you try to cram too many things into one day. For now, I'll blame it on my desperate Christmas shopping expedition yesterday, which turned out to be semi-successful.
My card today, and here we go again...."My new favourite card" has another image from Saturated Canary. I can't get enough of these beauties at the moment, drawn by Krista Smith, and as a result of her Black Friday Sale, you'll be seeing quite a few more of them! The current challenge over on her challenge blog ends tomorrow, so here I am again, posting my entry last minute............
Now raise your hand if you would like hair like that! Gorgeous or what?
The theme for this weeks challenge is a series of inspirational photo's, but the general theme of your creation, is to be a result of whatever inspires you. So for my inspiration.......pretty things of course!
A beautiful image...........
.....together with pretty papers, ribbons, buttons, colours, stitching....you name it. As it's my new favourite card, I find it very hard to give them away (ever seen the TV show Hoarders?!!!!) But that's OK cause this one's not leaving my house. I think it will be given to my eldest daughter. Now is the time to share a little conversation we had not so long back.
After looking through my ...ahem....small collection of cards, she said to me in all seriousness "Mom, why do you never make me pretty cards?" and I replied with my patient (but silently exasperated) tone "I make you a card for your Birthday, Christmas and everything else in between" to which she replied "Yes, but they're not pretty!".
Kids...........guaranteed to give the best and most honest critique!
Well, I hope this fits the bill. Here's one last close-up of my collection of pretties........
Papers are from Authentique and colouring is courtesy of my Copic's.
Enjoy your evening and I'll see you soon
