Get Creative 5th February Card Challenge ” Love is in the Air “

Love is in the air every sight and every sound, love is in the air……..do ya remember that one !!!! It’s especially for the old fogies, Suze Bain and Florence being two of them.  Don’t know about you but will most probably be singing that all day.

It seems like you can’t go anywhere in blog land without their being a heart or love challenge of some sort at the moment and why should we at Get Creative be any different…. our crazy leader Irini has decided to put a twist on our challenge and she wants us to create a card for our loved ones but without the use of RED OR VARIATIONS OF THE COLOUR OF PASSION !!!

Come and have a peep at what I came up with

well no colours of passion here unless you have a gold or glitter fixation ! I used my spellbinders hearts die to make the black and white scalloped hearts, the lovely Cameo was called upon to cut the fancy heart which was then blinged up with two different gold glitters. I made a right old mess in my studio I can tell you glitter here there and everywhere. The doglets once again looked lovely in the glittery coating as did Ronin the dog and Ziggy the cat. Yes , we now have four pets in the craft studio , I really must try to get a group shot of the little creatures but it’s usually bedlam in here and that’s without the little mites being in attendance.

We do hope you will join us at Get Creative , pop over and see the fantastic inspirational cards by my team members , we have been sponsored this month by:-

Less is More ” Glamour and Glitz “

Hello lovely ladies, super quick post from me as I have the  “mange ” (well flu to be precise ) Last week upon my return from London I found both hubby and number 2 son a coughing and a sneezing. I of course being the compassionate person that I am called them wimps and told them to stop feeling sorry for themselves , only to catch the dreaded lurgy a few days later !!!! that will teach me !

I just wanted to share this little card with you before I crawl back into bed that I made for

the current Less is More challenge whose theme this week is Glamour and Glitz ! A bit tricky trying to combine CAS with glitz and glamour but here goes nothing !

I used Tim Holtz large and small rosette dies using various papers from my stash and my new ebosser to cut them. The larger one was dipped in Glossy Accents and then tons of glitter added. For the central embellishment I made a mold with some of that fun putty stuff and an old button ( can’t remember the name of it ! ) it sets in about five minutes then added UTEE that I had melted in my Ranger melt pot ( clear,white and blue ) filled the mold and five minutes later ta da ! The embossing and scalloping are all done with a fab new set by SU that I purchased by way of the lovely Vicky from Crafting Clares Paper Moments, I just adore it and am sure it will feature on many more projects to come.

Do pop over to Less is More so much to see and admire as always.

Right am back off to bed with a nice mug of hot cocoa 1

Take care
