Feel Better Soon

Wednesday, 20 August 2014

 Hi Everyone!

I have come to the conclusion that I need to have at least 28 - 30 hours in a day, cos 24 just ain't enough!  I don't know how others fit so much into their days and some of them have children to deal with too!  It's now 2:30am but I couldn't leave this any longer, so here's one of the cards that I should've blogged last week but completely forgot about - sorry, too much goin' on in my mind!

There's a challenge running on the Creative Card Crew blog and it's got just under a week left on it so there's still time to enter.

We are being sponsored by Imagine That!  and they're offering 3 digi's as a prize

We also have our regular sponsors, Marianne Designs, who are offering a fab prize of dies and/or stamps.

Our challenge this time is...

Embossing - wet or dry.

Here's what I did:

My image is called Nurse Ashley and was provided by our sponsors Imagine That!  (They have now added this card to their shop gallery for the Nurse Ashley image!)  I coloured her with the following Copics: Skin: E21,13,00,0000,R20.  Hair; E27,Y26,24,21. Clothes; R59,37,24. 100,C9,7,5,2,1. Clipboard; E35,33,31. Eyes; YG07,05,03.  I then fussy-cut around the image before adhering to the card with foam pads.

I shaped the card by making my usual square card and then cutting 3.5cm squares out of each corner to make a cross, which would later become a red cross!
I didn't use patterned papers, instead I used a Cuttlebug swirly embossing folder - thereby fulfilling the challenge!  The swirly gems, ribbon and charms are from my stash.

The inside has not been decorated this time, instead I used a lovely wee verse stamp from LOTV.

So that's my belated card for the Creative Card Crew Challenge, I hope you can join us during the remainder of our challenge.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

OH MY GOODNESS!!! This is fantastic, I so love the cross shape and your coloring is ... WOW, amazing. Love your embellies too. I don't know how I missed this one as the sponsor of this challenge last year. I have a sponsor coordinator, so sometimes I don't always see them all. But I found your card as I was Googling certain sets (I accidentally deleted all my category buttons-YIKES!) anywho... your card popped up under "Get Well" -- LOVE IT SO MUCH. I hope you don't mind if I use this as a category button for Get Well?? Please email me if you DON'T want me to use it and I'll take it down. Thanks so much Email: kris_imaginethat@aol.com

Have a lovely day!
