Going by my title, I should've expected the unexpected when my scheduled post didn't post last Friday! I've only just noticed that it didn't and it has disappeared from my list of posts. I don't know if I'm to blame or if it's another blogger glitch, I've been hearing of a few people having diffs but it might've been (in other words, probably was!) my error.
I wanted to tell you about a lovely crafter I met last Friday night at my sisters party, she makes and sells the most beautiful wee stuffed hearts and keyrings and christmas decorations as well as some other bits and bobs, it's always so nice to meet other crafters (and she was so lovely!) and to find one so close to home is a bonus! Here's a link to Angel A's facebook page and etsy store - give her facebook page a like as she giving her 100th follower a wee prize!
Now back to the post that should've been! We have a new challenge at PunkYouGirl and the theme for this month, set by our lovely Mo, is...
Angels & Demons!
What a fab challenge and I must tell you, I was really challenged with this one! My mind just wouldn't get into gear for it at all!
We have a sponsor free challenge this month, so it's just for fun and the DT were free to use whatever we wanted! Here's what I did...
I used The Octopode Factory's Angel which I added a little tail to for a bit demontion (it's not a word!) I coloured her with the following copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R27,20. Hair & wings; 100,C10,8,6. Dress & tail; R59,29,27. Background; C4,3,2,1.
The papers are by Pink Petticoat and are printed in Jet Black. I mounted on a lovely red card and I cut the Spellbinder scalloped circle in the red and the print which I love!
If you take a closer look at the papers you'll see why you should "Expect the unexpected"! Cos when you open the card I don't think you'd ever expect it to be like this!
Just for a bit of fun I made the inside a cutsie Christmas card - see, you didn't expect that! lol!
So pop over to the PunkYouGirl blog to check out what the rest of my talented teamies did and have a go yourself - and remember to check the blog again for the midway reminder to see what team 1 did!
