Morning and welcome to Sunday morning

Hi there,

Over on Craft Mad and Loving It a themed challenge has been set by Rosie and it is ...... THINGS WITH BIG EARS and she's attached a photo for inspiration. Now, Lauren and I are wondering where on earth Rosie found the photo of the two of us, mucking about, in the Disney Store in Florida but hey ....... we are indeed "things with big ears"!!!!

Taking my inspiration from Mouse Ears here is my entry!

Materials used:
  • 8" square 300 gsm white card and matching envelope
  • Red card
  • Yellow card
  • Rubber Stampede image inked in Ranger Archival jet black
  • Pro markers and marvy alcohol markers used to colour image
  • Red and white dotty satin ribbon
  • Inkadinkado sentiment inked in Memento tuxedo black, directly on to my base card
  • Martha Stewart corner punch from a PATP set
  • Faux crystal gemstones to embellish

Last night saw me out to dinner (wot! AGAIN?!!) This time with a cousin and a pal - the three of us chose a small restaurant not a million miles from home and met there. It's a 17th century barn and finds itself now slap bang in the middle of an urban rabbit warren of a housing estate! Good grub though and not expensive. I had the chilli and very tasty it was too. For dessert we took ourselves back to school with chocolate crunch! MMMM

Liz inspecting her handbag! and my cousin, Debra - at the Langley Arms

Got up this morning with an idea for the Simply Less Is More sketch this morning .....

Materials used:
  • 300 gsm scallop edged white C6 card and matching envelope
  • Double sided (low tack) tape and scrap paper (to mask)
  • Post it cut in to shape of my image (to mask)
  • Blue chalk
  • Cats Pyjamas image inked in Memento tuxedo black and stamped twice (once on to my base card and once on to my post it mask)
  • Paper Mania sentiment inked in Memento tuxedo black, directly on to base card
  • Copic Atyou Spica glitter pens (in red and blue) to highlight thermometer and ice pack!
  • Scoreboard and tool to score lines either side of chalked panel
Hope like it - also hoping that you're all having a fabulous Sunday - ENJOY
