Pollycraft Candy (Before and After)

Morning all.  Cough cough splutter sneeze.  What a way to start a Monday.  Poor ol' Toad has been really poorly over the last few days with an absolute stinker of a cold, and the rotten meanie has passed it on!  

Anyhoo, some of you may have seen on Facebook on Saturday that we had an inky paws incident.  Here's the evidence.

I thought that I had positioned my elbow in an anti-Rosie place, but she can be a determined little devil.  So, she jumped up, over my arm, and front paw into the inks.  The picture shows Walnut Stain, but my craft bench and her white fur also showed more than a bit of Salty Ocean!  

I almost binned this to start again but a very encouraging blogging buddy convinced me that the image was saveable, and she was right (of course).

So, this is Candy from Pollycraft (CC Designs)
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Grand Merry Christmas from Memory Box
Scalloped circle from Tonic
Double stitched circle from MFT
Red card by Bazzil
Snowflake paper by BoBunny
Snowflakes by X-Cut Palm Punch

I may rename her Phoenix

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Dear Squirrel - I think both cards look fab! Well done Rosie! Bigger well done to you though because your colouring is beautiful and I love how you have reclaimed the image and made a truly adorable card.

Hope that cold soon goes. I must confess I prefer the bottom version, makes the image pop more which is in beautiful colours

Oh dear, glad you able to save the image and love how you've
Word die.

Aunty Sue said...

oh dear but I think he was telling you that although nice if you just mounted in a circle as you have done it would be far better. I agree. Tee Hee

Sorry that you have been illin'. I'm just getting over the bug myself. I didn't feel up to crafting so I put puzzles together for the last 3 days. Puzzles and cats don't mix well in case you wondered. No inky paw prints to deal with but you do get chewed and missing pieces. Charles decided if the price didn't fit you should punish it by putting it under the couch. Anyway, your ink print save is FABULOUS!

Eeeek, I've been a little bit AWOL again and am trying to catch up on the lovely cards I have missed.
The 'Rosied' version of this design had a certain charm to it but I think overall the second version is a winner! Well salvaged :-)
I adore all your cute critter samples for LOTV too...all adorable especially that gorgeous Squirrel!

Big hugs, Kat xx

I still think that you should have saved the first version to be Rosie's card to Toad! I do love it, but I do prefer the second one. I love the colours and those lovely double stitched dies are out again. D'oh!
