A True Friend- Challenge 29

a friend told me about this
site and I just had to join in

the challenge is to do a page
featuring the
Soundtrack of
Your pets Life

I chose Celine Dion Eyes on Me as my little soulmate Bud constantly has his eyes on me and that is how he lives his life- hopefully you have some idea of how wonderful it feels to have someone so devoted and dependant on you- it is certainly something to cherish

Let me know what you think


Nasty Bug?

I vaguely remember seeing something quite like this get well card in one of the magazines before so it def. is not my sole creation but i think it is quite a funky idea for a get well card. OOh and managed to get a swiss dots embossing folder at Craft At Home today

Hidden Stash

Isn't it good when you stumble upon something in your stash that you have not yet used and you forgot you had, well I did that with this Papernation stamp

The back ground card is of course Funkyhand

Just a Quick One

Have never took part in a challenge before so this is a first

Just a Quick One at Daring Card Makers where you had to make a card any theme in 30 mins or under

My card took 24 mins from start to finish and of course it had to include one of my new embossing folders- the skull one

I attached two strips of wine coloured bazzil to a black card blank then doodled round them then emossed the skull folder on black then filed it and tore round the edges

the skull is a Tim Holz grundge board skull which I inked with black ink then stuck onto white card then roughly cut round

i then attahced fibres and punched three flowers from the bazzil and put one in the eye socket and attached jewels and used rubons to say Cool Chick

New Stash

went to craft class yesterday and forgot I had pre ordered some new Cuttlebug embossing folders that are just released adn they were there waiting for me
Got a lovely border one there are five borders in it and i just love the look of the stitch one and the button one
Also got the holly one for Christmas and a mad one with skulls on it
Can't wait to play with them but have a few orders that I have to do first- looks like a busy crafting day ahead hehe

For not being around for a few days but been really busy between one thing and another and trying to get used to hubby's different shift patterns

Was away to say this card is made using one of my favourite stamps but I seem to say that about every stamp don't I and the other card was made using K & Co papers and ribbon

I will try to update more regular - promise
