My ladies all made this card last night and I know I know before you all start shouting and screaming at me – pillar boxes are supposed to be red – noooo not here in the beautiful Emerald Isle they are green. Needless to say this card will not be winging it’s way to one of my buddies in the UK for Christmas but will be staying here in Ireland. Now now ladies put your hands down and stop saying… me me.
Back to the class, all my lovely ladies went home with such beautiful cards last night – their colouring techniques are really beginning to shine through and some very unique styles are starting to develop. Well done girls.
I chose the Royal Mail Penny Black stamp (always been addicted to these and if memory serves me well the first stamp I ever purchased was a PB) because they are so easy to use and not one of the girls stamped a bad image.
Going off on one now but it is pure coincidence that my beautiful Cocker Spaniel is called Penny Black. We bought her as one of our presents to each other for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and all the Grandchildren wanted to name her. Not even going to go there with some of the names they came up with. Anyway the name chosen was Penny and because of her colouring my husband added Black onto the end of her name. How spooky is that, one of my fave makers of stamps is the name of my dog, could be thought transference….The End.
Now lets get back to the card, very plain but oh so cute not a bit of DP anywhere…
(Off on one again, I had the idea of putting a glossary at the top of my blog for abbreviations, because blogging is a whole new world to me and I am sure there are new bloggers just like me out there who are in the dark with some of the terms used…. That is until I saw PMSL over on Tabby Craft Designs …(it’s a must to visit her blog today the card is just the prettiest)… which incidentally I did know what it meant and I also PMSL (try explaining that one cleanly) so my idea was squashed before it started… nice one Tab’s.)
…Try again – Cuttlebug Swiss dots was the main mat for the card and a red scalloped nestie. Image was stamped and embossed onto a nesti and the sentiment also sits on a nestie -Fancy Tags, green ribbon from stash, bit of Stickles bling for the scarf, white fluffy stuff for snow, not forgetting the obligatory candy tots and Bob’s your uncle one finished card.
BFN everyone, see you soon (couldn’t resist it)…
