Afternoon peeps, happy Saturday to you! Well, what a funny ol' day it's been - rain, sun, rain, heavy rain, sun, heavier rain, sun. We've had no internet for most of the day and then just when I'd settled down to watch the qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix we had a power cut - aaaargh! Thankfully it wasn't off for long so calm was restored. Honestly, no F1 for a month while the teams have their summer break and the power company does that to me. What are they trying to do to a Squirrel's nerves?!
Anyhoo, the Toad asked me to make a wedding card for one of the girl's in his office. Now I don't know about you but I find it difficult to make a personal card for someone I've never met so I had to wing it a bit with this. Let's face it, Toad had no idea of the wedding colour scheme, he couldn't even remember what colour Claire's hair is and he shares an office with her!
Here's what I made:
Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image: Lili Of The Valley - Wedding Couple
Colouring Medium: Distress Inks
Sentiment: Wild Rose Studio Contemporary Wedding Words
Papers: Wild Rose Studio Wedding Bells
Other: Nesties and Anita's Silver Outline Border Peel-Offs
Cardstock: Partners "cobweb" embossed ivory satin card
Challenge entered: Hanna And Friends "LOTV"
And while I was playing today, I chose this image for my mum's birthday card:
Isn't she such a sweetie? This is another Lili Of The Valley called Milly Hello and again she is painted in Distress Inks. Now I need to work out what to do with her!
I noticed while I was painting that my brushes are wearing out - they are developing frizzy tips! And that is not something a girl needs to be suffering from. I guess I know what I'll be buying when payday comes round again.
