Hello everyone I'm running a tad late this morning. I have for you today an inspiration post for Saturated Canary. Things are changing over on Saturated Canary Challenge blog this year so pop on over to find out all the details. Also there are some images Krista is retiring on the 25th January, pop on over to check that out as well & get your code to get 50% off.
Ok so onto my inspiration post. I did actually make 2 with images I've had coloured up for ages, one with copics & the other with distress markers. However I dont know if I like one of them so I quickly made another to replace it. I will show the other one over the weekend though.
I have gone for a romantic type of card as Valentine's is drawing closer ;0) The papers are the gorgeous Prima 'Romance Novel' which were from MCH. Pop on over to check out the closing down sale, lots of awesome bargains to be got.
The envelope I made with a cut out from the Prima papers & also the tag. I cut out a stamp & attached it to the front of the envelope. The tag inside I attached some seam binding & a 'Key' charm which I dipped in shabby white fran-tage.
The flowers are Prima 'Lyric' . The clock die-cut is Marianne Design which was inked lightly with Antique Linen distress ink.
I added a gorgeous Prima 'Zipper Pull' that says Beauty on it, quite apt for this card. The tags at the bottom I cut from the Prima papers & stapled them together & cut out letters to add on.
The gorgeous image is probably my favourite SC rubber stamps, she is called 'Breeze' & I coloured her with my distress markers. I also added some shabby pink fran-tage as well.
I made a bow with the seam binding & added a Scalloped Pearl from WOC, the small heart shaped pearls are also from there. I also added 2 'Bark Hearts' in the top corner. Inside is decorated to compliment the front as always.
Pop on over to the Challenge Blog to see my teamies gorgeous creations.
I have had a couple of emails asking how hubsters op went. Well after the op I will give you the surgeons first words to him after recovery. 'Well that was erm interesting......' Apparently his little finger was still broken but couldnt understand why it didnt show up on xrays. Really he needed a bigger op & have plates & pins but because they were not expecting that, they did not have the materials needed in theatre. So they have grinded the lump down & use that mixed with glue to try fix his finger. He has about a 50-50 chance of it healing but the surgeon is not hopeful. He goes for an xray in 4-6 weeks to see if its healed, if not then he will have the bigger op. So he is in plaster once again bless him, we are hoping this works as the bigger op means it will take a few months to heal properly. I'm obviously dealing with Natalie on my own, we have hoists so that helps, its just dressing, bathing & changing her nappy which requires a bit of muscle lol. She is small in height but weighs about 9 & half stone, just a few pounds lighter than me...........yep unfortunately I have put weight on this last year :0( However we are managing not a prob & our home is still a mad house as usual lol. I will be able to bench press our van at the end of it lol........
Well thats it from me we have our grand-daughter staying tonight & at the minute she is addicted to one of Natalie's dvd's.........Over The Hedge, I think its cus the main character has the same name as her baby brother, only spelt different lol, his name is RJ.
So I am some what behind in commenting but I will try my best to get round to the rest of you today.
Thank you so much for stopping by & your lovely comments mmwah
