*Warning another long post*
I thought I would post the cards that I made for Deborah's March CCC challenge. This time around my card recipent was Sanne. Unfortunately for Sanne the mojo was on a go slow :(.
This first card was a layered one. I brought myself a new Cuttlebug embossing folder with butterflys on it. Which I'd tell you the name of except it's with my cuttlebug at Em's preprep along with all my other cuttlebug stuff. I decided that I really wanted to do a 3D effect so the very top layer is raised up with foam dots. I used a lot of embossing powders on this card along with my trusty versamark pen. Have I told you how much I love using that pen ;D. I also had a go at colouring the pearls in with my copics to get the exact shade that I wanted.
This next card I used the circles left over from the first card & stamped then clear embossed them. I used some Diamond Glaze on the girl's eye as well as stickles on her cake. I also attempted some more detailed shading with my Copics. After watching some video tutorials on the 'net. I am slowly getting better.
This last card is my favourite of the three, I think it's because I'm really pleased with the colouring of the girl, plus the simpleness (which I rarely am able to do). Her eye is also Diamond Glazed just to give it that extra sparkle. I love that the copics can be used on coloured bazzil as well. The flower is stamped directly onto the pink c/s then I used several shades of yellow on it. I also put a pearl in the centre.
On family related news ;D everything is going well. We took Em to my last Obst. appointment & she got to see the baby. I'm not sure but I don't think she was all that impressed, I think the toys where more appealing ;D. We still don't know if we are having a boy or a girl, but most of my family/friends have decided that this one is a boy. I don't mind either way. I was asked by a stranger the other day if "I am having twins & was I due any day now?" Does that give you an idication of the size of my "Bug Bump"? I still have about 11 weeks to go ;D.
Tom is currently wearing a "bucket" on his head or as I like to call it "The cone of Silence". He started licking his stomach & managed to "pluck" all his fur out then all the skin off it. So he's had a secret visit to our vet as my dh doesn't believe in taking him to the vet for these sorts of things. It was hard to explain to Em about secrets as she came with Tom & me. I snuck him into the vets on a day that I knew Doug wouldn't be up for ages. Tom has suffered from this skin irratation before & my vet thinks it's due to all this rainy weather we've had.
I can honestly say that since the begining of March we had one day of complete sunshine & no rain. That was yesterday. At the moment we have a cyclone sitting just off the coast further north so that is going to generate more rain for us.
I had better sign off now so I can go & leave you all some love, I miss checking out your wonderful blogs - TTFN
