Dancing Dodo

Don't wait for a light to appear at the end of the tunnel,
stride down there...
and light the bloody thing yourself.!!!

(as seen on Dylan's blog)

I haven't any cards to show so thought I'd show this Dancing Dodo video instead... love this song, very upbeat and happy :). This was also on Dylan's blog which gave me the idea.

Tim Holtz Bird on a twig

I have to say that my card is based on Lucy Abrams far more superior version here. I really love the twig. That's one of Miaowski's. One of my neighbours gives little twigs to Miaowski thru the window. She loves taking them in her mouth and running off like a little dog. I find twigs scattered all around the carpet! Very handy for my bird cards :)

My new phone doesn't take very good photos compared to my old phone so I might have to go back to using that instead. I've tried adjusting the light levels in photoshop but don't really know what I'm doing. This is the best I could come up with.

Interestingly the colours seem to go better together here than in real life! I embossed the musical notes (Allegro by Cuttlebug) onto a Nestability circle and rubbed over it with Stampin Up's Whisper White and layered it on a Nestability Big Scalloped Circle. The background was made with TH distress inks, Crushed Cordroy and Mahogany and overstamped with nice swirls from TH's Artful Flight stamp set.

I was only saying to Miaowski the other day, we take life too seriously, so better lighten up. She agreed ...
Ooops, just messing with the clipart on the phone. Little things amuse me, probably too much!

Thanks for stopping by ...

Bunny pots and Velvet Dots

Velvet dotty card - so touchable, love this spotty card by Doodlebug Designs. When I used this Penny Black bunny stamp before, I did it in browns but am much happier using pretty blues and pinks. I used glossy accents on the pots and on thei rabbit's noses. I added flower soft to the centre of the flowers. The sweet little tag and sentiment are by Stampin up - that has got to be my favourite tag punch. The flowers and paws are raised on glue dots to give a bit of dimension.

This card is a birthday card for a friend of my Mum's 11 year old goddaughter, I hope she likes it.

Well I haven't posted very much lately and this is the first time this month. I'd like to say I've been basking in the glorious August sunshine but all we seem to have had is skies full of grey clouds. Right now I'm feeling chilly so I'm going to have to put more layers on before I catch pneumonia, lol!

I made another card but I forgot to take a photo of it before I gave it to my Mum as a second choice incase the bunnies weren't suitable. D'oh, how did I forget that?

I hope it is sunny where you are. Happy Sunday everyone ...
