I'VE BEEN THINKING OF YOU - NEW CHALLENGE AT CRAFTY CARDMAKERS & CARD WINNER!
Hello and thanks for stopping by....
I've been rather unwell this past week or so but would like to thank you all for commenting on my posts whilst I've not been able to reply. Fortunately I do try to schedule one week in advance, which, thankfully, covered the past week
I'd also like to say "thank you" to Mrs Duck, from 'The Ducks Doodahs' blog, who sent me a lovely 'get well card', (I had a few happy tears) she knew I was unwell because I had to cancel my workshop with John Lockwood via Ang (Mr F actually cancelled it on my behalf) to say I was gutted at having to cancel is an understatement!
Ang has recently opened an on-line craft store, fabulous goodies at very reasonable prices and you can find her information by clicking on the 'duck' on the right side of my blog or visiting:
OK.... it's the start of a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers, the lovely Angela is our host and she wants to see 'Anything But A Card'. If you click on the link below you'll see the fabulous designs from my 'design teamies' and my contribution of a cake I recently made. I'm sure I've previously shown this but it was the only suitable photo I had that wasn't card related LOL....

and here is my cake:
apart from the ribbon it is all edible
For today's card I've used one of the papers from Spectrum noir Colorista Dark Paper Pad and used the metallic pencils to colour the image. I think this particular paper would be ideal for the male species, would you agree? It was very therapeutic colouring it. I layered it to a piece of white card stock then added thin black ribbon around it prior to adhering to the 7" square card base
I stamped the Creative Expressions's sentiment onto white card, using a black onyx ink pad then covering the stamped image with a clear embossing powder by WOW and heat setting it
The verse, from my stash, was stamped with the same black ink pad
The metallic colouring does look stunning
