Evening all, hope you are all fine and dandy. Well, I had some good news at work yesterday (which I will share with you when it has been officially announced in the office) which will take a huge weight off my shoulders - one that has been there for the past nine months or so. Sadly it does not involve a pay rise! So to celebrate I have snuck in a day's holiday at short notice so tonight is the start of my four day weekend (yipee).
Normally on a Thursday night you would find me making my entry for the LOTV challenge but as Lili's Fairies are on holiday there's no challenge this week. Sob! But that didn't stop me getting the stamps out.
Now, why do my gatefold cards always end up with a gap in the middle? It doesn't seem to matter how I do it, that pesky gap always appears. I found a packet of rather neglected and somewhat sun faded marble effect cards that I bought in Lakeland, ooh, maybe five years ago? One of the pink cards was faded down to white on the outer edge so my weird little brain said Well if I cut that bit off, and do the same to a blue one, I can make a gatefold. I measured so carefully, I cut using a guillotine, I put the cards together, yes, all is well. Then I glued them together and that **** gap appeared! How?!?!
Anyway, here is my card for tonight - haven't searched for any challenges but it will be Squirrel's Law that over the next few days there will be heaps of pink/blue/gatefold/birthday challenges appearing and I'll be stuffed because I published this before the challenge! Happens a lot. Beginning to wonder if I'm partly psychic. Or is that psychotic. Not sure, lol!
Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image: Lili Of The Valley Rosie With Cake
Colouring Medium: Distress Inks
Card Base & Matting: Lakeland Marbled Pastel Cards (long since discontinued) and
Sentiment: Lili Of The Valley Circular Sentiments
Decoration: Marianne Creatibles frondy thing die, Tesco tiny flower punch, Sizzix corner die, Magnolia Old Lace border die (which nicely covered that gap!)
Thanks for visiting - I hope you have entered my little Sugar Nellies Followers Candy (ending at midnight tonight) - if not, now's your chance.
