Seems like ages since I've sat down and made a card. This one started last night but I got to a certain point and couldnt get no further with it it just wasnt uite coming together right then I got up this morning looded at it and hey presto some new ideas came to me and I managed to get it finished and looking how I was expecting it to too! the challenge over at CCT was Nip & Punch - Get your punches and die-cuts out and at SCSC its BLING - we would like to see gems and sparklies on your creations. Ok so I didnt use gems but my papers (doddlebug Inc) are sparkly/glittery and my cs is papermania Gemstones (shiny bit like Bazzil Bling I think) so I hope that counts for bling and as for die cuts and punches well I loved this challenge as it made me think about and sort thru some bits and pieces that I havent looked at for a while! I have used the teddy sizzix die (green) amd the tags and number 1 are sizzix DoodleTag numbers & more set and then I added a couple of little punched teddies and the mats are of course nestabilities. The rectangle one at the back was going to be bigger but didnt have enough cs left so experimented and am actually quite pleased with the result, ribbon and breads from my stash. TFL - wow that was a long post! And now a quick apology from my previous post, I used abbreviations and didnt really stop and think that some people might not know them so PSE5 is Photoshop Elements 5 which I use for my digi scrapping and Netbook is my mini laptop, the screen is only 10inches wide and I love it, will post a pick of 'Samson' later.
